    Interesting figures. I'm assuming the 17 million killed by Timur is the cumulative total for all of his conquests, and not just North India?

    I'm also surprised at the Bahmani-Vijayanagar War. Even though my ancestors fought in that war, my family has never emphasized it as much as Malik Kafur's conquest of the Kakatiya Kingdom, which is considered a major tragedy in our history. Maybe its because the Kakatiya rulers were of the same gotra :p

    Await the global agricultural collapse. Eat as much as you can today, for in the future we all have to survive on a mere fistful. Indian starvation gene ftw.

    Yeah, 17 million is the cumulative figure, just like 40 million for Genghis Khan.

    The world's population growth will be parabolic in nature IMO.
