Once there was a time when Britain was called Great Britain and it was the most powerful colonial power in the world. It was so much power that it colonized India, a subcontinent. Britain came into India for trade through the East India Company. But Britain started interfering in Indian politics and administration. At last, in 1857, Britain took charge of India and it was the biggest colony of Britain. At that time India was the richest country in the world. But Britain snatched the wealth of India. Britain took Koh e Noo of India. British rulers imposed taxes on Indian farmers. British army killed Indian civilians many times. They imprisoned many freedom fighters in India. After WW2, India got independence from India and was divided into two parts, India and Pakistan.
During British rule over India, some Indians migrated to Britain for better living and education. Now the successors of those Indians have high status in Britain. We will discuss those status persons in the following.
