An Example For Rewriting The History


East India Company or English East India Company is a trading company which established in 1600.It came to india to mainly trade cotton,silk,tea etc..,Later it took control of india and started to rule India in 1957 after the “Battle of plassey “.After a long fightback of our freedowm fighters the company was dissolved in 1858.

After a 150 years look what happened.History rewritten.Now an Indian  named Sanjiv Mehta is a 48-year-old Indian businessman who for the past six years has worked to restore the formerly British-owned East India Company. In 2004, Mehta proceeded to buy all the company’s shares, mostly owned by British businessmen. He has spent the last six years travelling and talking to museum curators and historians in an attempt to gain a proper understanding of the heritage of the company. Mehta efforts are somewhat surprising given that the 400-year-old company acted as a vehicle for the expansion of British imperial rule in his homeland.
