Both non-European and European groups of people traveled and settled into this new world to find new land to conquer or find salvation.

The new changes in modern culture did not just affect individuals alone, rather it beared a large burden on business owners and authors as well. Many new laws were passed in response to the economic fall. Through all of these new challenges, England was willing to determine if they were ready for a new way of life and to pay the price in doing so. The modern life in England was beginning to soar, but some of the consequences that other families had to go through were catastrophic.
It’s a known fact that the British had come to our country as traders but later on became rulers. This obviously impacted the economic and political systems of India. However, they also influenced the social and cultural life of Indians.
