    They Were Greeks Actually
    Colonial India refers to areas of the Indian Subcontinent and Maharajahs under the influence of European colonial powers through trade and conquest. The first European power to arrive in India was the army of Alexander the Great in 327-326 BC. The satraps he established in the northwest quickly crumbled after he left. Later, trade was carried between Indian states and the Roman Empire by Greco-Roman sailors that reached India by sailing on the Red and Arabian Seas. The spice trade between India and Europe was one of the main drivers of the world economy[1] and the main catalyst for the Age of Discovery.[2]

    The search for the wealth and prosperity of India led to the accidental discovery of Americas by Christopher Columbus. However, it was the Portuguese sailor, Vasco da Gama, who became the first European to arrive in India solely by navigating the sea, at the end of the 15th century. Having arrived in Calicut, which by then was one of the major trading ports of the eastern world,[3] he obtained permission by M?navikraman Raja to trade in the city from Saamoothiri Rajah.

    Trading rivalries brought other European powers to India. Dutch, British, French and Danes established trading posts in India in the early 17th century. As the Mughal Empire disintegrated in the early 18th century, the Maratha Empire became weakened after the third battle of Panipat. Leading to unstable, fractured, debilitated Indian states who were manipulated by Europeans through increasingly dependent “friendly” Indian rulers. The second half of the 18th century saw the British and French enter into intense struggles for dominance through proxy Indian rulers and by direct military intervention. The defeat of the redoubtable Indian ruler, Tipu Sultan, in 1799, marginalized French influence. With the French threat removed, the following decades witnessed a rapid expansion of British power through the greater part of the subcontinent. By the middle of the 19th century, the British had already gained direct or indirect control over almost all of India. It was the most populous and valuable colony of the British Empire, thus became known as the jewel in the British crown.
