Still reading The Anarchy. It depicts the East India Company’s rule in India. How true are the described incident, I have no clue?

How from Mughals, Afghans, Persians, Maratha, Dutch, French and British rule: India was robbed.

I felt sad for our country, reading thought the atrocities and loot. The various small empires, their strategies, and their greed.

Was our past so bloody and painful?
