10 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

Whoever said this is very correct. If the mad have not ruled over our country we were the most developed

Well, if we had not ruled over you, India would have been millions of "kingdoms" and dynasties. Because the British imposed laws on India as a whole, independence and the building of a nation occurred to the sub continent as two countries. So if there were no Britain, their wouldn't be a united India.

No no no no no not developed at all

If I had superpowers, I would take my money back from every person living the the not-so-Great Britain. Thieves! - vivek0305
