I suspect there are multiple reasons
It is also possible that there is a smallish British population still there, I mean we are smallish in SA but in comparison to the population of 55 million we make up maybe 2 million? But when you have a population of 1 billion, 2 million whites would be lost.I suspect there are multiple reasons
1. local populous vs land area was not as sparsely populated as Sa, Austrailia and Nz
2. It was a end point trade destination
3. Assimilation of locals was less forgiving with major uprising. i.e. ethnically it was harder
PS. In SA you had multiple europeans contending for the port.. dutch, spanish, british, french and since land was sparsely populated they took ownership.
Interestingly I didn't find Indias sun as bad as SA. They only have a UV in Mumbai of 8 versus our 13 :| The humidity on the other-hand...England, cool place with 1 day of sunshine, known as summer.
India. tar melting, eyeball popping like popcorn, skin burning off after 15 seconds.. and that is in Autumn...
The harsh truth:Quite curious to know why is the white population in India so low?
India was colonised by the Brits but there seems to be hardly any British communities there and influence.
Anyone know why this is?
It's a bug from the first Civilization game that carried over to them all. Basically Gandhi had an aggressive rating of 1, but when any nation became a democracy their aggression went down by 2, the problem is 1 - 2 in computer terms becomes 255. So from super peaceful to supppppppper aggressive.Nuked 'em with peace,love,harmony and passive resistance.
Conflicted with the brit ideal of conquering and exploiting the world
