In India, there was a meeting of traditional society with industrial England. How did this meeting affect the development of the country?

Of course, India’s entry into the world market also had a positive result. By the middle of the XIX century. the first railways were laid in the country. You know what a positive role the construction of railways has played in the industrialization of Europe. But in India this did not become an impetus for the development of heavy industry, since everything needed for the construction of railway lines was imported from England.
Foreign trade developed, and this led to the construction of new port facilities. On the coast, cities arose that served foreign trade. Bombay and Calcutta became especially large ports, through which trade with China went. The construction of the telegraph began in the country. Old irrigation canals were restored and new ones built. These were the steps of technical progress, but for India it turned into a tragedy.
