400-years-britain-and-india

A well-directed infotainment series called 400 Years: Britain and India is broadcasted on YouTube to celebrate the 70th Independence Day of India. Produced by Inspirate and Image Nova, 400 Years is an 8 episode long video series which goes to explain the British-India relationship beyond colonisation and throws light on how a trading company, and not the military or the government, but British East India Company, eventually managed to defeat the ruling Mughal Empire in India. Back in 1601, the East India Company, was a merely 5 storey building, that landed in Surat, India to trade in spices and textile. Through careful economic advancement and strategic trade practices, it eventually took over the worlds richest and most prosperous nation. It is a fascinating tale that uncovers lot of truth and puts it all in a fresh perspective.

It is a visual-treat backed-up with well-researched facts and discussions with historians, academicians, specialists and writers and currently, the channel has aired its 1st episode. They plan to release its next one on September 28, 2017Thursday which can be viewed on YouTube or at www.400yearsseries.com.

The makers are willing to throw light on a deeper explanation on not just alliances and political aspects of two nations, India and Britain. The 8 episodes are a compilation which will lift the lid on aspects such as the establishment of The Company, The Company’s transition from the stance of trading to ruling, the British Raj, reformation of Education system through the western influence, partition of India and Pakistan and Independence, food and spice of India, migration of Indigenous across the globe, and the cultural sharing. The episodes are short, crisp and well explained.

If we are to believe what the former British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill once said, ‘Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it”; than this show is a must watch.
