Transcript of Example of colonialism in the world & the effects

What is an example of colonialism in the world, and what are the effects? India fought 111 wars with only Indian money and troops before British-India eventually saw peace. Although all of these things happened, the British introduced lots of modern technology to India. They built railways through India so everything was easily accessible. They built law courts, transport systems, civil services, factories, schools, and universities to introduce the idea of democracy. All of this was done in the name of Britain’s economy. India however could not always enjoy all these things because they were forced to do much labor to construct them. They had little rights until their independence. From this particular colonization, there were many negative effects, but also many positive effects. Today, India is one of the largest suppliers of services in the world due to its colonization. Throughout the world, many different cities and
countries have been colonized. An example of
colonization of a country is when Britain colonized
India. There were many different negative and
positive effects to this colonization. The East India
Company was made by the British to trade with India.
India had excessive natural resources and a great
center of trade, so the British would easily benefit. The East Indian Company During the time the East Indian Company was formed, many disorganized kingdoms were fighting against each other. The British took advantage of this opportunity by helping kings fight against one and other. From this, the British got more power than money. Progressively, the British succeeded in getting a hold of very large part of India. The British also skillfully succeeded in collecting a huge wealth from the people and kings of India. Britain did many unfair things to India. They did not treat their soldiers fairly, and
made the jobs of farmers, kings, weavers, traders, and craftsmen all more difficult,
because of a new more costly trading system they worked out, which caused in many unhappy workers. This resulted in poverty and economical issues. Indians were being treated like second-class citizens in their own country. They often got paid lower the Europeans. When Britain colonized India, the English language spread quickly, wiping out the languages of the indigenous people. A sketch of Indian and British soldiers fighting. The Indian Flag!
