Well, if the British wouldn't have come to rule over India, then everything would have been changed. Some activities like the abolishment of Sati, or the introduction of Widow Remarriage Act, or even the abolishment of Child Marriage wouldn't have happened. We wouldn't have been speaking English also, if this rule never took place. We would have also been THE richest country in the whole world.
