    Did Britain create the Indian caste system, and where are the descendants of Africans who hunted down young men and women and sold them to Arabs and Western slave traders? Why aren't y'all talking about them? Oh, wait, you just wanna talk about what you picked to humiliate! In other words, your history is cherrypicked! lol.

    The past is never rosey and pleasant but the past makes the future and the fact the British empire had turned india into a superpower of today, I’m sure they’ve made back more than 45 trillion through trade and other things that the empire founded for them. The famine was disgusting but then a prince could have sold a necklace or a ring to feed his population but they never. The Indian leaders of this time were very vain and materialistic and we’re into showing off their wealth whilst their people starved. The English and their hand in it is truly disgusting, removing food to ship elsewhere from a starving nation. During those times we were becoming i guess more civilised, because Alexander the Great conquered india way before the British landed there and stole endless amounts of property and kill endless people. When the British arrived we swapped resources and built railways built institutions which makes up a lot of modern day India. Stole and robbed of course but it was a more civilised takeover than we were previously known for. History is their to be learned from and although one person make think a guy is barbaric and doesn’t deserve a statue or remembrance to those during the time with the way the world consciousness was he could have well be regarded as a good guy! Many tried to make Jesus out to be evil because he was a rebel of the times, i think when we talk about history we need to talk about it as a whole because when you have one agenda because of your ancestral trauma your never going to hear a different perspective and therefore never have the opportunity to heal, it was thanks to all that this guy explained that their is an Indian guy in British television able to talk about his ancestral trauma and the theft that took place, that would not have been possible 100 years ago or 209 years ago or maybe even 60 years ago. Human consciousness changes through the eons, so we have no right to judge anyone from a time we’re we did not live and did not understand or know how things were done, because it is alien to us today but not back then, back then it was survival of the forest, those who dare win and so on. But what it he built for today’s people i like to think is worth it, both British and Indians, for all the Indians that have migrated to the uk, wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for our shared history ❤️🙏🏻
