Musunuri Nayaks - Prolaya and Kapaya


In 1330, Musunuri Prolaya Nayak published the Vilasa grant, a copper-plate grant near Pithapuram. In that he described  the devastation of the Telugu country  by the Turks from Delhi and also his  attempts to restore order.  His successor, Musunuri Kapaya Nayak (ruler during 1333–1368), attacked  the Tughluqs and drove  them out of Warangal in 1336.

Shashi Tharoor on What the British Did to India



Little More than Tea and Cricket
Review by By Andrew Robinson
in History Today, Volume 67 Issue 4 April 2017

In 1700, India, then ruled by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb,  boasted 24.4 per cent of global GDP: a share almost equal to that of Europe’s 25 per cent.

By 1950, India became a secular democracy by implementing a new constitution, its share was only o just over three per cent. During 1757 and 1947,  the British East India Company ruled a large part of India until 1858, then  the British Parliament ruled until 1947.
