World history is a fascinating field, with so many different global events that you could study something different every day and still never run out of subjects. At the same time though, with so much choice out there, it can be difficult for people to settle upon the specific subjects that they want to work on.
One often underexplored area is Indian history topics, and British students in particular have a lot to learn and a lot to contribute to the field. That’s because Britain and India have a long, interlinked history, and bringing the two together can be a great way to give your work an edge and a little uniqueness.
And so with all of that in mind, let’s jump on in and take a look at just a few of the most interesting topics that British students can research about Indian history.
What topics British students can research about Indian history
1. Alexander’s Invasion of India
If you’re interested in Indian history project topics, a good place to start is by looking at dissertation writing services in the UK. That’s where we came up with the idea of focusing on Alexander’s invasion of India, in which Alexander the Great launched a campaign in Pakistan with the aim of taking control of India. It’s thought that Alexander set his sights on India because at the time, the Greeks thought that India was at the end of the world.
2. Gupeta Empire of Magadha
Originating in Magadha, the ancient Mauryan and Gupeta Empires led to major advancements in the sciences, religion and philosophy. It led to what’s now known as the Golden Age of India and was spread across modern-day India, Bangladesh and Nepal. This is another great example of a rich period in India’s history in which there’s no shortage of subject matter for would-be essay writers.
3. Delhi Sultanate
The Delhi Sultanate was a huge Islamic empire that was based in Delhi and which ruled the majority of India for over three hundred years. Taking place during the Middle Ages, this happened during a fascinating period of global history, and this gives students the ability to try all sorts of interesting parallels with what was taking place across the rest of the globe.
4. The Coming of the Portuguese, Dutch, French and the British
One way to make written content more engaging is to directly address your target audience. If you’re a British student who’s writing for a British university with British lecturers (or Portuguese, Dutch or French for that matter), writing about the coming of other nations to India is an easy way to increase the likelihood that whoever’s reading and marking your coursework feels some level of investment in it.
5. India Under Colonial Rule (1700-1885)
This is arguably one of the more controversial Indian history topics, because even during the Indian Rebellion there were people fighting both for and against the British. The good news is that there’s plenty of information out there for you to use as a basis for your work, ranging from organizations like the BBC to the British National Archives.
6. Indian Rebellion of 1857
If you’re looking for cause and effect essay topics then you might have found your topic. That’s because no rebellion in history has ever come about by accident. In this case, it’s said that the rebellion was born out of Indian resentment towards British reforms which included harsh taxes, although as with any rebellion, there are dozens of different factors which all came together to instigate it. You could write a full essay just on the causes.
7. India: From Regional to World Power
This is one of the most relevant Indian history topics for today’s world because the country is increasingly becoming a major player in the global economy. This is also one of those interesting subject matters where there’s no need for extensive research or to cite other people who’ve studied the topic because there’s just so much information for you to tap into.
Now that you know just a few of the defining events of Indian history, the next step is for you to decide which topic interests you the most and to start carrying out a little research. As you carry out your research, be sure to look out for areas that haven’t been highly covered. This will make it much easier for you to make sure that you’re adding your own original take to it.
Of course, there’s also a real risk that you’ll end up choosing a research area where there’s not enough information out there for you to write a full piece. The key is to find a subject matter that you’re interested in where there’s enough research for you to make an original contribution without retracing the steps of previous researchers. Good luck.

As robots evolve to do more work around us, the UK-based humanoid robot manufacturer Engineered Arts has infused more human-like facial expressions into one of its robots, which may leave you with an eerie feeling.
In a video posted on YouTube, the robot called 'Ameca' displays various human expressions, like appearing to "wake up" from sleep, as its face shows confusion and frustration when it opens its eyes.

Once awake, 'Ameca' starts looking at its hands and arms, opens its mouth and raises its eyebrows, just like a human does.
At the end of the video, Ameca smiles and holds a welcoming hand out towards the viewer.
According to Engineered Arts, the humanoid bot is currently unable to walk and it is working towards giving it the ability in the near future.
"Designed specifically as a platform for development into future robotics technologies, 'Ameca' is the perfect humanoid robot platform for human-robot interaction," says the company.
The 'Ameca' hardware is a development based on its own research into humanoid robotics and built on its advanced 'Mesmer' technology.

Microsoft has disrupted the activities of a China-based hacking group, gaining control of the malicious websites the group used to attack organisations in the US and 28 other countries around the world.
The Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit (DCU) said in a statement that a federal court in Virginia granted its request to seize websites of the hacking group called 'Nickel', enabling the company to cut off Nickel's access to its victims and prevent the websites from being used to execute attacks.

"We believe these attacks were largely being used for intelligence gathering from government agencies, think tanks and human rights organisations," said Tom Burt, Corporate Vice President, Customer Security and Trust at Microsoft.
Obtaining control of the malicious websites and redirecting traffic from those sites to Microsoft's secure servers will help the company protect existing and future victims while learning more about Nickel's activities.

"Our disruption will not prevent Nickel from continuing other hacking activities, but we do believe we have removed a key piece of the infrastructure the group has been relying on for this latest wave of attacks," Burt said late on Monday.
To date, in 24 lawsuits - five against nation-state actors -- Microsoft has taken down more than 10,000 malicious websites used by cybercriminals and nearly 600 sites used by nation-state actors.
"We have also successfully blocked the registration of 600,000 sites to get ahead of criminal actors that planned to use them maliciously in the future," the tech giant informed.

In some observed activity, Nickel malware used exploits targeting unpatched on-premises Exchange Server and SharePoint systems.
"However, we have not observed any new vulnerabilities in Microsoft products as part of these attacks. Microsoft has created unique signatures to detect and protect from known Nickel activity through our security products, like Microsoft 365 Defender," the company noted.
Nickel has targeted organisations in both the private and public sectors, including diplomatic organisations and ministries of foreign affairs in North America, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Africa. (IANS/SP)
