Lol british ruled Indian with the support powerful Indians.

There were sometime Indian in Imperial Civil Service designed the bridge but made by british company .

There were sometime british designed bridge but Indian companies like TATA MADE IT

ONE GOOD THING ONLY IN BRITISH INDIA THAT ALL BRITISH ERA CANAL, DAMS, BRIDGE, RAILWAY BRIDGE AND, RAILWAY ARE MADE IN SO GOOD QUALITY THEY STILL LAST LONG.

WE HAVE SOMETHING ANGLO INDIAN Minority. They did also contribute in Independence India and they didn't want to genoicide.

If they wiped out the natives of India then British wouldn't able to rule it.

They able to rule it with the powerful supporters of native Indians which native American and Aboriginal Australia lacks
