If you look at your computer keyboard, on the top row, you'll see India's greatest contribution to the world - their number system. Everyone calls them "Arabic" numerals, but they originally came from India. Us ignorant Westerners got them from Arabic traders/missionaries who passed on the knowledge they'd gained from dealing with the sub-continent back when India was merely a number of usually warring states. And those shady bastards happily took the credit.

People in certain regions of India have a skewed view of the outer world because of a limited exposure.Most of their understanding of black society and culture comes from European source which often does not paint a positive picture of the black civilization.
