During the British Raj in the Indian subcontinent, there weren't settler colonies, no trading posts, no plantations, no British rule; in fact not a single British was there. Yet the impossible was made possible, beyond the wildest dreams of both the Indian and the British: the Indian subcontinent JUST BECAME a part of the British empire!Colonization takes place when a foreign people come as settlers, settle down, propagate themselves and take over everything subduing the natives. That is what happened in the Americas, Australia for example. That is what Indians are doing in the Andaman islands. So Colonization in a technical sense did not happen in the subcontinent with the British rule. It just became a part of the British empire.
Whenever I mention that Indians; who allegedly claim to be the victims of British colonization; are the real colonizers in Andaman islands and are destroying its natives, they run like rats into their holes and hide, and refuse to answer why they insist on being hypocrites.
PS:I don't favor the exploitation of one man by another man; and if that's what the Indians of today are doing in Andaman Islands, then I condemn their actions.

They colonize, Kashmir, Nagaland areas, and Andaman, as I have noted earlier. I bet you are also against Maurya, Gupta, and Moghal conquests and empires too. When will these subcontinentals stop double talking?tsrajesh wrote:Guys! guys! guys! stop it. Noone is getting anywhere. Lots of words but nothing achieved. however they argue, they can't get the indians to believe that colonizing is good, not evil. Again, however much you argue, you can't talk a british away from his imperialistic mentality. (If any british thinks otherwise, please say so. As far as i can see, the only voice of a britisher is in this thread). Can we just stop this nonsense and carry on with the purpose?
http://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/AssomAssam lost territory as non-Assamese populations were granted autonomy by the Indian government. In 1963 the Naga hills district was made into the state of Nagaland. The Naga independence movement has maintained its guerrilla struggle. In 1970, Meghalaya was created in the south. Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh, separated in 1972, received statehood in 1987.
An outsider cannot buy property in Kashmir,so the question of colonisation in Kashmir does not arise.More or less similiar provisions were granted to most North-East Indian states.Settlements began in Andaman during the British rule and were due to extreme conditions such as partition or genocide and torture of Hindus in East Pakistan.
How brute were the Mauryas and Gupta Empires.This can be adjudged from the fact that there is tremendous diversity in the subcontinent unlike China and also from the fact that these Empires did not last longer.Gupta Empire was very much like present day Europe in having banned capital punishment.Maurya Empire patronised Buddhism which said that it is much more meritorious to save an ant rather than maintain an Empire.
