I had to spend 7 weeks in India to install some machine tools. I am very open to other cultures and ways of life and never try to be too judgemental. The average Indian is no different than anyone else in the world. They laugh, cry, anger, love and want to provide for their families just like anyone else would. They're intelligent and hardworking. What I found appalling was the way they treated women. It is like going back in time. They view women as they view livestock. Property and child producing machines. Like a broodmare. And the class system is in full effect. The lower class are viewed as vermin. I tried to make conversation with a street sweeper and my guide quickly ushered me away from him making gestures like I was committing a crime. They are totally ignored and tolerated because no one else wants to do that kind of labor. Really shocking for an American who is mostly sheltered from experiencing that. Some of the sanitary conditions, or lack thereof, was also eye opening (if you are a germaphobe, don't go)

I don’t still understand why it’s titled as India’s geographic “PROBLEM”..when the video tells that the Himalayas prevent any intrusion by China , the vast coast land makes it difficult to be invaded by waters due to the distance from surrounding coastal countries ; isn’t it something that has to be called an advantage

Chin was a five year old baby boy. When emperor ceased. Chin was throne. Then soldiers went around annexing provinces for chin. Then brought province to feet of chin. So the annex region was there after given name CHIN. Then chin expanded. When expansion of chin was in process. Then Hitler pickled Chinese in caves and suffocated them. Then Mao rose for Chinese. Mao bothered not to recognise aryan culture spreading in Chin. So Maoism was enforced. That is roti, kapde and makaan only. No moral values were to be nurtured. Moral intigrity as well was not necessary for human. So China there after took up on that idiology of Maoism.
Mao there after destroyed aryan emperor establishment. That was a swastik palace in middle of Lake. From where the emperor set out aryan law and law was enforced on region.
The ruins are still there.
The emperor flee.
But annexing of region continued. Vietnam was to be annexed. And America aided Vietnam from being gulped by chin.
There after chin tried on island that are Philippines owned. Or are Japanese islands.
Even 2/3 of Tibet was gulped in process of chin expansion.
Only 1/3 of Tibet enjoyed autonomy under Dalailama. But gradually chin gulped total Tibet. That was once Pushkar and not part of China.
But China annexed with China. That wrong geographically.
There after China gulped akshay chin that part of kashmir.
When king of kashmir has signed contract with india uniting with india.
There after chin gulped part of North West region from Pakistan.
That's even wrong.
Then China recently tried for Bhutan. To be annexed but india intervened. And yet China attempt to annex. .China demand Arunachal pradesh where brahma and vishnu were testified by maheshwar. That event is freshly written in puranas.
As well Tibet contain Mt Kailash that us mahadev seat and residence. That us sanatandharma pilgrim place. How can China claim over sanatandharma seat region?
That was the misunderstanding of British so China allowed to gulp regions in West sides. In the east the region and nations resist Chinese annexing process. Deny China over powering them. In the west india a sur nation is unprivileged and oppressed by global power. India has no say. India is to accept white christians who are sura nature of Hebrew adharma to look upon them as civilized even admire them for their power of spell and plaguing victim magics. So india can not exercise power of expression to even secure region that was once pilgrim stump a rock of sanatandharma and india has to keep on loosing as the way sura chrstian think high of themselves and keep on criticising india. So that india is now much reduced and shriek then what india should have been. Even Afghanistan was india and region far beyond in North West was aryavata. Known as Gandhar. That's mentioned in puran. The geographical understanding of white Christian us shallow and limited.

In those days Mahishmati was a city on mouth of river narmada that was international port as well. All merchants and ships arrived and anchored in Mahishmati nagari. People dialect in diverse languages arrived with diverse coins and purchased items or sold and left by ships. In those days docks were well maintained. Ships were in usage taking cargo to places. So the ships in aryavata were well developed. Where as Europe was forces of darkness gripped land. Europeans above river dandy only worshiped stone idols and blew in skull invoking evil entity and practised evil witchcraft. Where as only Romans were civilised and Greek. Greek had many scolars who wrote books that Europeans make use of these days.
Only Romans had cremation on pyre that was culturally high.
Only Romans arrived to india by sea route and took ved in exchange and knew fire ceremony and chanting of exorcist words for exorcism.
Whom Hebrew torched and killed.

Your geographical understanding for india is limited.
There are already books written down on earth. How earth was formed. What ingredients earth consists of. What human are? What sustance composted in human. What brahma is? How universe was developed. And earth. How nature came onto act on earth.
There was only land on earth.
That was muddy. When vishnu saviour saved earth from being dump into mud. Then earth was only land till Bhagvati ( good entity ) descended from paradise in chariot. The land dented under chariot wheel was pressed down. 7 continents formed. The land that was pressed under chariot wheel submerged under water where ocean was created.
Prior to this event there was no water on this earth.
Earth thereafter became live.
India as you whites have named the region was a continent . The name of the continent was AJNAB .
AJNAB was land far beyond ceylon ( sinhal pradesh).
There was land far away beyond the present shores of india. In the north where himalay is : was ocean. Tibet was an island surrounded by ocean as well. Swet ocean ( white ocean) name of the island was Pushkar. Pushkar was seat of brahma. People were pure, truth practising, highly cultured, morally upright, well behaved disciplined and dharma practising. Known as brahmputro. ( that is children of brahma). Currently to the day, river Brahmputra flow in the region. That is evidence that the region was brahma seat. As Mt. Kailash is seat of shiv and parvati that is fact that is materialising of good entity in this region having created there after, manav, asur, ( demons) ghosts, pishachas ( drakula) devta ( good entities) danavas ( bad entities) animals, reptiles, birds, etc... many type of human. AJNAB DRIP HAD SPECIAL MANAV WHO WERE SANSKARI MEANS WELLL BEHAVED. KNOWING RIGHT AND WRONG. MORALLY UPRIGHT AS WELL AS TRUTH PRACTISING ETC.
THIS IS MENTIONED IN PURANAS. .
AT THAT TIME, messopotemia was a drip. An island surrounded by ocean water.
But in messopotemia dwelt rakshashas. ( evil entities of highest evil power). Evil entities are known as sura.
Good entities are known as sur.
Sur live in AJNAB DRIP. But the drip consisted of many islands within. In North was Pushkar drip reaching cold desert. That was brahma seat. In south was Jambu drip. With vindyachal mountain range. With Mt. Maru in North. But there was yet ocean surrounding this drips. ( drip - means island).
Then there was Yavan in North
West.
Now history tells as mentioned in books. That sura of messopotemia imitated sur of aryavata. That was AJNAB CONTINENT.
IF aryavata had four pilgrim in four directions. North, East , West, south. Badrinath, varanasi, kanyakumari dwarka.
Then sura imitated and had four pilgrim places of evil entities.
They were Akkad, Elam, Sabratu, ashur.
Then aryavata sur has Ishan . Ishan is north east direction where Ishan entities live in universe. Ishani have pas . Pas is weapon that can capture evil entities by power.
Ishani have power of administration of this earth in true direction of dharma.
When messopotemia that was rakshash drip had Nissan.
Nissan is negative force a bifork sword facing earth towards hade is negative power. Taking one towards hade.
Then when aryavata sur surya, sur chandra ( full moon) sur varun , sur agni etc conducted conference in kashi. So as to establish sur law on (human) manav population. Manav means human inherent with at least 32 good qualities but could be inherent with at least minimum 26 - 29 - 30 .
Where as diminishing in good qualities turn manav into something else. Such as beast , hewan -. Human with bad qualities ) that would be cheat, liars, thieves, rapper, torturer, molester, cruel etc. Till evil qualities grow more and turn one into rakshasha .
The law could be: ' Gai and Gauri'
Gai is cow. And Gauri is virgin maiden .
Both needed some one to lead. Cow herd was lead by shepherd who lead cow to pasture and brought back home.
Gauri was lead by father or brother and her hand given to spouse who then lead female as a husband. Protected female.
Both required male care.
Both were drawn by male keepers.
So the law was established and enforced that gai and gauri needed male protection.
Both deserve protection and no molestation or beating. Male had to be nirmal ( mild) natured.
Then sura called.conference in raksha drip in Ninapur.
The sura tropic would be ' send off soldiers on horse for loot. 1/10 of loot should be offered to ashur the king diety. Then the rest distributed among elderly , meek, children, moms with children up bringing, those unable to loot and what remained was looter belonging.entitlement.
Sura law diversify with understanding of sura.
Sur would not loot anyone.
Where as sura were cruel enough to loot others.
Then sura have black magic power . With black magic power sura have unseen fretter with which evil entity is lead and caged in unseen cage and transported the unseen spirit to desire destination. That is implanted within other victim body so as to cause discomfort.
Sura are cheat. Sura are dirty. Sura are meat eaters.
Sur are truth practising keeping to words and to acts.
Sur are clean and sacred .
Sur are vegetarians.
Sur magic is exorcism that is flower fragrance effervesce in presence of unseen sur.
Sur exorcism can give out red powder that can sanctify third eye or the area.
Sur can give out ghee ( butter) .
Sur can keep mark of their presence by materialising flower with fragrance.
Sura evil entity keep mark of dirty ingredients. Such as saliva, spatter, human urine, menstruation blood, human excretion as well presence of sura can be identified when such smell materialise in house or in place. Because sura consume such ingredients.
From the smell and from power of black magic that sura operate can be identified as evil entities.
If aryavata sur have pas.
Then sura of rakshashas drip had fretter to capture evil entities.
Aryavata sur has law of swarg lok that is ved.
Rakshasha drop has law of underworld tgat Torah law given by shamash underworld entity to hamurabi.
Both contain flood story.
Aryavata contain matsya avtar of vishnu as savior of ved.
Messopotemian have Novah ark story of securing all specimen of living being. When flood subsided then land joined main land. So the ark was on top of Mt Arat.
AJNAB also changed. Oceans disappeared. Pushkar drip lost ocean around and himalay rose high. Jambu drip was with main.land and ocean disappeared. The land that was around ceylon was submerged under water. So AJNAB Changed.
Time pass by. The people in the region if messopotemia there after decided to cover up identity. So a dieing language Hebrew was introduced. The name Ninapur that was city was there after known as Ninevah.
Now bible put light on Ninevah where gods used to sit and hold conference.
That ninapur that was sanskrit name was thereafter altered into Hebrew name took up new name of Ninevah.
Gods were sin god that us crescent moon god, sun god etc.
But that gods are sura nature inherent with bad qualities.
So they were in those days pressurised and kept in confinement were not allowed to mix with other nations. All attached and kept them caged. .so they decided to release and change language. Because sanskrit name gave pure message of what they were.
There are names to the day that are sanskrit. That karbala. Ashur, kaaba etc.
Now kaaba has sun sign on door and moon sign on door. That is sura sun god and sura moon god.
That sign is not shiv crescent moon as one thinks.
Because sura imitate sur of aryavata . So ritual in kaaba is anti- clockwise rotation of kaaba clad in black for eight times. Dressed in clean white sheet as brahmin priest dress while initiating worship.
Aryan priests dress in white or saffron while initiating worship.
In old days even Romans dressed in the same way in pure white cloth. But industrial revolution brought sewing machine then people dress in cloths sewn.
These are diversities in sura adharma and sur dharma.
This is mentioned in puranas.
The creation of earth. Ocean. Continents. And what india was. That time most if population was followers of sur sanatandharma. Even Romans cremation was on pyre and Romans knew fire worship as well conducted fire worship.
Persians worship is fire worship.
But Judaism brought Islam and Islam that is also monotheist god ashur worship. That cancel out fireworship.
You have to have deep understanding in dharma in order to understand what bible speaks. That's why the geographical definate on of india is incorrect. That time there were all sur king. Emperor also practising sanatandharma and worshipping brahma vishnu and mahadev. And sureshwari.
All emperors and kings were ruly. Well behaved knowing law etc.
Sura are unruly misleading cheat do not know dharma and rule land with need of food cloth and roof over head. Besides that Hebrewism teach nothing to Christians. So that Christians with insufficient knowledge rattle more as you do.
Actually, books tell that Tibet was aryan land and india.
India was AJNAB continent that was beyond ceylon . And spread far broader then what the shape is currently. That land is submerged under water.
This clarify between two faiths also.
So your geographical understanding of india is insufficient.

Manavikraman, Samoothiri Raja of Kozhikode began the naval build-up in 1503 in response to Portuguese attempts at extracting trading privileges.

The Maratha Empire was established by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in 1674. From its inception, the Marathas established a Naval force, consisting of cannons mounted on ships.The dominance of the Maratha Navy started with the ascent of Kanhoji Angre as the Darya-Saranga by the Maratha chief of Satara
he repeatedly attacked the colonial powers of Britain and Portugal, capturing numerous vessels of the British East India Company and extracting ransom for their return.

Under Rajendra Chola(ruled 1012–1044), the Cholas expanded their empire with the use of their strong navy and subdued many kingdoms of South-East Asia and occupied the region which included Myanmar, Malaya, Sumatra etc., and sent ambassadors to countries as far off as China.

Sea lanes between India and neighbouring lands were the usual form of trade for many centuries, and are responsible for the widespread influence of Indian Culture on other societies, particularly in the Indian Ocean region. Powerful navies included those of the Maurya, Satavahana, Chola, Vijayanagara, Kalinga, Maratha and Mughal empires.[4] The Cholas excelled in foreign trade and maritime activity, extending their influence overseas to China and Southeast Asia.

Waste of time... totally bogus, lack of research and knowledge..
The world's first[3] tidal dock may have been built at Lothal around 2300 BCE during the Indus Valley Civilisation, near the present day Mangrol harbour on the Gujarat coast.
The Rig Vedas written around 1700 BCE, credits Varuna with knowledge of the ocean routes and describes naval expeditions. There is reference to the side wings of a vessel called Plava, which give stability to the ship under storm conditions. A compass, Matsya yantra, was used for navigation in the 4th and 5th century AD.

A good and rational video, however I think the idea of a potential superpower country is vague in its definition can a third world country become a superpower ? as an Indian i can tell you that India has too many social an development issues that it needs to work on before it truthly be considered a super power or world power but yes because of the size of its economy it will by default become or has become a major engine of the world economy unfortunately because this superficial accent to power is all that matters in today's world the quality of life for the majority of the Indian population will remain third world

Many of the other powers grew powerful due to proximity to other great powers? What about the United States? I guess the US became powerful because of immigration and trade from world powers. So I guess you could refine your point into: proximity is important, but the movement of ideas and knowledge through trade and immigration creates growth.
Also, you said India was never significantly threatened by sea. Did the British ever threaten India by sea? My history knowledge could be lacking in this area.

Sorry your narrative is dangerously wrong. Pakistan is destined to be an Islamic country , under a Sharia rule. The full name of Pakistan is Islamic republic of Pakistan. On the other hand India from its very inception believes in secularism , pluralism and peaceful co existence of many faiths and believes. India is not a Hindu republic . It is secular republic. And will remain so.

Before the British rule india had a 23 % world economy share .. it was left at under 4% when the british left .. Millions were killed in mass violence with guns by the british while indians had nothing to defend themselves .. they induced famines by rationing food for their reserves from indians to kill thousands ..Nothing to eat ..No money.. Taxed on working any job..make any goods..complete families and lineages destroyed ..Yes they gave us English... Only other good may be removing sati ... But thats it..You wanna say trains .. yeah that was to take the raw materials mined by cheap indian labour to the ports and away to britain for industrial revolution there.. cheap in a way that "they work hard labour but they owe money for working" .. Left to rot by diving before leaving so millions would just kill each other and the country would destroy itself.

So many flews in this video that I wish people actually get the full facts before opening up the shit gob.  India had region/kingdoms based on the regional customs but was loosely based on the same believes overall.  You have what’s called a princely state meaning each area had its own ruler but most rulers had common bevies which overlapped each other.   Furthermore the desert isn't a huge impediment to India as this video suggest.  India always had the necessary infrastructure to cross it quickly if the need arises.   The biggest issues India has is not the geophysical issues but it’s more of its political leaders, leaders who are not willing to put country first but rather have individual and party's interests.  Sort out the political issues and everything will fall in place.   Muslim in India was what divided India.  There are so many different customs and cults in India but areas never got dived like for Pakistan being drawn into would map.  Reason being Muslim never belonged to India.  It’s the main reason why India is still not prospering as it once did.   There is more to India then what the video is showing and what it is showing is not nearly true in the first place.    Also about India's coastline, Shivaji built a strong naval presence across long coast of Konkan and Goa arounf 1650 to protect sea trade, to protect the lands from sack of prosperity of subjects from coastal raids, plunder and destruction by Arabs, Portuguese, British, Abyssinians and pirates. Shivaji built ships in towns such as Kalyan, Bhivandi, and Goa for building fighting navy as well as trade. He also built a number of sea forts and bases for repair, storage and shelter. Shivaji fought many lengthy battles with Siddis of Janjira on coastline.  The fleet grew to reportedly 160 to 700 merchant, support and fighting vessels. He started trading with foreigners on his own after possession of eight or nine ports in the Deccan. Shivaji's admiral Kanhoji Angre is often said to be the "Father of Indian Navy Also Shivaji built a strong naval presence across long coast of Konkan and Goa to protect sea trade, to protect the lands from sack of prosperity of subjects from coastal raids, plunder  and destruction by Arabs, Portuguese, British, Abyssinians and pirates.
