    Mahadji Scindia collaborated big time with the french and used their expertise with Gunpowder in decimating his opponents.
    It is good to learn from the foreigner.

    too bad that the French messed up everything in the 18th century :(
    Even Napoleon failed to capture Egypt to come to the aid of Tipu Sultan. But for Malayalees Tipus fall was better anyway.........
