Figures relevant to India.
Over all Rank., Event Description, No. of people killed
4. Famines in British India, 24 million
9. Timur, 17 million
23. Aurangzeb, 4.6 million
40. Bengali genocide, 1.5 million
70. Bahmani-Vijaynagara War, 0.5 million
70. Parition of India, 0.5 million
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
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.
could you please give me any links, documentaries, books on the subject ?
The world's population growth will be parabolic in nature IMO.
Which subject? Bahmani-Vijayanagar War?
