Abandoned 1860s India by UAP

UAP, "It’s 1863 to 1870 "imperial" Britons’ arrival to Calcutta reveals a desolate, abandoned, advanced Greco-Roman city almost devoid of life."

The population of Calcutta in 1710 was estimated at 12,000, from which figure it rose to about 117,000 in 1752. In the census of 1831 it was 187,000, in 1839 it had become 229,000 and in 1901, 949,144. Thus in the century between 1801 and 1901 it increased sixfold, while during the same period London only increased fivefold.

    I've been getting increasingly frustrated with the thought that we somehow live during the peak of civilization. The notion is so laughable, it's ridiculous. Even over the last 80 to 100 years, the decline has been dramatic. And you don't need to go to India to realize this... It's literally all around us. But India is a "fantastic" example of the fall. I've known several people from India and they all have been uniformly disgusted with the current infrastructure.

    Sorry, haven't been around much lately and now I'm basically just complaining, but those complaints tend to fall on deaf ears everywhere else.
