2017-07-12 06:44:58 UTC  

well it was ont he path towards it

2017-07-12 06:45:18 UTC  

some of the bigger clans, and the sikh empire in the nrothwest were industrializing and m odernizing their armies

2017-07-12 06:45:36 UTC  

japan was left alone because it was difficult to reach, geographically unimportant and had no major natural resources.
India was easy to reach for europe, geographically essential for asian trade and had a fuck tonne of resources, Europe wasn't gonna let india unify under native rule.

2017-07-12 06:46:00 UTC  

the sikhs couldve beaten the bongs in the first anglo-sikh war had the bongs not bribed their genrals

2017-07-12 06:46:25 UTC  

the british feared that the siksh would invade the part of india thatw as ruled by ol john comapny

2017-07-12 06:46:35 UTC  

and that the sepoys would revolt and join the sikhs

2017-07-12 06:46:42 UTC

2017-07-12 06:47:44 UTC  

the queen signed a pact with the bongs in orde rto secure her throne

2017-07-12 06:47:58 UTC  

as for the maratha empire

2017-07-12 06:48:01 UTC  

though if britain was forced out france would have tried to move in.
and if both were forced out you could expect russia and japan to try to gain power.

Even if india managed to gain true independence from britain it was going to spend the 19th century being harried, invaded and undermined.

2017-07-12 06:48:07 UTC  

it had fractured into anhindred lil kingodms

2017-07-12 06:48:17 UTC

2017-07-12 06:49:02 UTC

2017-07-12 06:49:14 UTC

2017-07-12 06:49:22 UTC  

>sikhs could have beaten the british

2017-07-12 06:49:22 UTC  

but with britain forced out of the region they likely would have pushed into afghanistan and persia
