Breif about India

  • It is the only society in the world which has never known slavery.
  • India never invaded any country in her last 10,000 years of history.
  • India was the richest country on Earth until the time of the British in the early 17th Century.
  • Robert Clive's personal wealth amassed from the blunder of Bengal during 1750's was estimated at around £401,102
  • It has been estimated that the total amount of treasure that the British looted from India had already reached £1,000,000,000 (£1Billion) by 1901.
  • Taking into consideration interest rates and inflation this would be worth close to $1,000,000,000,000 ($1Trillion) in real-terms today.
