    These diamonds are nothing but worthless stones when compared to what foreigners looted us off. The Knowledge, the very pride we had in our culture and self respect.

    Why you remind us of such shameful things? A man without his jewels isn't a man.

    All the subcontinent had to give back then were stones, since its rulers and intelligentsia clearly had nothing in the way of technology or sciences to provide.

    Till industrial revolution subcontinent and ottoman and chinese were ahead.In 1700, iron production using coal, rapidly increased iron production per day... Thus industry, machines, guns, etc number and production rates incraesed rapidly in europe... thus age of industrial revolution and imperialism.... many nations like aztec, mayans, native americans, indians got subjugated, prosecuted and made slave... only non EU nation got along was japanese.... rest got pinned down

    Apparently the Portuguese had set up a metal printing press in Goa by 1550s.....and later more and more Europeans came to the court of the Mughals with their versions....Jahangir, for example, in the 17th century was asked by one of such Europeans, why don't you commission a printing press to print all of your work/literature? (by that time they had proven that Arabic/Persian script could be very well produced in printed form.) Apparently, Jahangir replied, that if i commission a printing press, who is going to employ my workers?

    Hi,

    Yes indeed. They destroyed our medicine and brought in alopathic medicine. For two. Hundred years there was no Progress in Hikmat.

    My great grand father was a Hakeem. As the story goes once a british doctor asked him to prescribe medicine for an ailment.

    What he prescribed had the similar ingredients in their natural form that the english medicine had.

    But now they can claim that india has taken over their computer related industry.

    The diamonds are owned by the British.

    Indian don't have any right to claim it. They are not yours in the first place.
