India has never invaded another country…
I think by now everyone has received this chain mail which extolls the virtues of India. It contains the line “India has never invaded another country in the 10000 years of its history. (The whole text is here.)
The problem is, that sentence is false even if you take a very generous definition of India to include Afghanistan. For example, this column details the exploits of the Chola kings in South East Asia.
You know what I am leading upto right? Here is your question. Give me another example where Indians have invaded another country. Remember that I am literally stretching the map of India, so anything that the Mughals might have done in present day Afghanistan is out. There might be more than one answer. The specific event I am thinking of happened within the past three hundred years, but any other examples are also welcome.
