The Mauryan Empire, c. 321 - 185 BCE
A map illustrating the rise and expansion of the Mauryan empire, the first pan-Indian empire that covered most of India and parts of present-day Iran. Chandragupta Maurya, the first ruler, seized the opportunity created by the power vacuum of Alexander the Great’s death to consolidate and expand the territory, while three generations later, emperor Ashoka turned to Buddhism and left his mark on history by inscribing numerous edicts (many of them encouraging peace and nonviolence) in stone.

Dalton's Atomic Theory
My dear Indians, have you ever questioned yourself why we never get taught about our vedic/indic theories during the british raj ? Nope! We obsequiously followed up the syllabus which was penned by Missionaries, and Britishers who were intended to undermine the Indic Values.
When Britishers left, their legacies are now being carried out by desi flunkies of west whom we think as intellectuals.
P.S. It's also very ridiculous when the social class of a person is decided by his fluency in spoken english.

Indian parents will literally give you the most ridiculous examples just to prove their point, if i told my mom i didn't want an arranged marriage she'd say something like "krishna-radha me bhi to bohot pyar tha unhone ki shaadi?" like mummy mythology pe aa hi gye h to draupadi ka naam to suna hi hoga

Indian Tulwar, 19th Century
Possibly from Sindh, with silver koftgari decorated hilt. Blade length: 29 3/4” Grip length: 3 1/2” Overall length (blade point to pommel finial): 34 1/2” Point of balance: ~7 1/2”
This is my first tulwar, and I love it. It feels very different to my British swords, as might be expected. Luckily the grip is not too small for my hand, but it is still a nice snug fit. There is very little distal taper to the blade. The blade’s spine is 1/4” wide at the base, and tapers to 3/16” wide about 5 1/2” from the base. It remains 3/16” until the yelman, at which point I lack the tools to measure further taper.
