Before British, our country was fragmented or divided in different princely states,after fall of these states India came under central rule means Delhi became capital so far all is well smooth going India became federation under Central rule with defense ,external affairs under central govt.
we hold our federation intact despite many shocks proved that plural community frugal mindset
can face challenges India survived in recession period the world is watching us how we manage
about British many good and bad we can discuss but my above content, gigantic structure or a nation was built is more important than anything
