Isn’t it also possible or probable that without the English/Brits therewould be no India as it exists today?Marathas Empire was actually completely destroyed by British and Peshwas were receiving pension from the company, however many regional warlords of Marathas ended up as the princely state of British. In second Anglo-Maratha war, Marathas had to cede large chunk of their Empire to British.
That's not true. British taxation was pretty harsh on Indians, debt trap was quite common among farmers, even monsoon fails there was no tax waiver to farmers. Millions of Indians were starved to death by Europe's hero Winston Churchill during World War 2 to fight Britain's war. To claim colonialism was good for Indians, Britain would have to treat Indians at par with Native Brits in resource allocation and taxation but that was not the case.
