Mesoamerican Irrigation>> Roman irrigation >> Chinese Irrigation >> Indian irrigation >> what else exists?

>>303318

Well there are tons of different ancient oriental irrigation systems, there is Ankor Wat, I think Mohenjo Daro which might count as Indian Irrigation, ect.

I don't think that we can have an actual discussion about this though without some statistics like argricultural output and climate conditions though, thats why I asked for a good comparison souce.

Why is it that Indians think it is in poor taste to talk about birth control but perfectly okay to squat in public and take a dump on the ground?

Mughals and brits fucked their shit up

>>303348

In all seriousness, we would need actual data and investigaton and all that, of which I know little of. Not sure any good sources but there has to be some, I know for sure some Aztec aqueducts are still in working condition but the Aztecs are fairly recent in history
>>
>>302902
Their industry was destroyed by the brits who wanted to turn the country into a purely labor force
>>
Why is it that I know absolutely nothing about India except that the Mughals invaded and then the British bribed their way into controlling the country? Did India not exist before the Mughals?
>>
>>303968
Indians were all philosophical and thought writing was for the material world which they were all so keen to leave.
Much of their ancient history comes from chinese and persian/arabic sources and their travelling logs
>>
>>304147
Were they generally peaceful?
>>
>>304235
Mostly, yeah.
They just kinda built stuff, wrote stuff, shared culture, etc. until they had to fight.
Overall pretty chill, shame what's happened to the place.

>>302902
Most of their capital was drained away by the Brits.

Poor India.

>>303968
india as a country didn't exist before the british raj either, so talking about it's history before that is futile. it would make more sense if you asked about a specific empire/kingdom in the region

It's the principle of pigment permanence. If a white person isn't looking at something then that something doesn't exist.
