Japan had samurai, China had youxia, Korea had hwasong, the Middle East had fursaan. What about the Pajeets?
Did India ever have knights?

They had tons of warriors, yes. Just read any mythology from the country.
good morning sir
NTA, but knights refers to a specific sort of warrior aristocracy though, did India have that?
did they have some type of cataphract
Yes, recorded in the Kadambari
>full metal armour, which left just their hands, feet and eyes free with the result that they appeared like the posts for tying the elephants
have you got a picture of these warriors
There are a lot of statues but the costume generally fails to correspond to what is described in the literature and political manuals, here's Kartikeya in a kind of scale mail
i'd love to see some art or examples of this scale mail.
This is Gandharan, not Pajeet.
AFAIK Pajeets didn't have anything resembling metal armor (or even gambesons) until the Muslim conquests. Gandhara was under Persian, Scythian, Kushan, and Greek influence, so it is an exception.
Gandhara was far more connected to India than Persia or Central Asia, for example there's no mention of the Persians or Alexander in any Gandharan record but references to other Indian states are commonplace, and they never thought of themselves as being separate from India like they did with Scythians or the Kushan who are explicitly referred to as barbarians.
>AFAIK Pajeets didn't have anything resembling metal armor (or even gambesons)
Why do you say this when I just quoted an Indian text describing full metal armour
dat sword gauntlet tho
i'd love like a Diablo game or a Prince of Persia game set in India. With all this historical stuff in it
>or a Prince of Persia game set in India
Like, the first one?
>the first one
If you mean the modern one the Indians were just antagonists at the start.
why is he tied to a lizard on the wall
i heard about this story from a Mad Max comic, Its how Immorten Joe got his Citadel
wow can lizards tie knots?
who said anything about tying a knot
what the fuck why haven't I heard about this before
Idk what this picture is supposed to argue
More Swedish-like Kshatriyas had owned and ruled over less Swedish-like low castes.
Alright, I don't know why you brought that up
Just in case. Say, there are some witches around.
India was always a priest dominated society. Brahmin caste has less Indo-European admixture and more neolithic Iranian. The Kshatriya caste is more Indo-European because invaders usually replace or assimilate into upper classes. Same reasons boyars used to be the Russian nobility. Invading a declining civilization isn't a great achievement retard.
>Brahmin caste has less Indo-European admixture
Is it possible to teach a poo to count?
Why are you homosexuals so obsessed with India? It's fucking bizarre. I've never seen so much seethe over anything else. Let me guess, you're an aussie cunt?
not him but i'm Aussie and i find India a little bit interesting
Why do your countrymen hate India so much? Also, what do you find interesting about India?
i just said i dob't hate india, why do you keep trying to say we hate India?
>i just said i dob't hate india
That's fine. I don't have anything against Australians.
But its still strange I always see people like this guy
when people say they this they are talking about negative interactions in our own countries, like telemarketers, scammers, immigrant workers.
Not India and Indians in India.
I guess I don't care then, but it certainly doesn't feel like that.
its no different to you saying ALL Australians are baddies. Because this one guy said this thing you don't like.
We all have negative interactions and positive interactions and we sometimes only focus on the negative.
Hey! i thought you Indians were supposed to be introspective. Thats your job
>its no different to you saying ALL Australians are baddies.
I definitely don't think that. Well, I'm going to sleep so this is probably my last reply.
Good night mate!
>not indians in india
The last few disgusting webms are from people in india
oh and what i find interesting is all of it, ancient history, art, modern history, cuisine, music etc.
>Why do your countrymen hate India so much?
The middle class doesn't give a shit about Indians. Working class Australians hate Indians because 'they're taking our jobs' and 'they're shit workers'.
I work day to day with truck drivers, and the second point is quite frankly true. Their attitude towards safety is appalling, and when told the word 'no' they beg plead and try to bargain.
This anger is misplaced though, and ought to be directed at both major parties who are beholden to our construction, banking and higher education sectors who insist on population growth without end.
>Let me guess, you're an aussie cunt?
Yep, and proud to be one. Now kindly fuck off back to Bombay m8. We are full.
>actually admits being Australian.
You homosexuals are too insecure.
hey you avoided me here
Not him, but it's fun to bully Jeets since they get so upset so very quickly. They just can't handle the bants lmfao.
They had Sintasha, Mughal, and british BVLLS.
l see you americans knw nothing of the braviest Pooshitra warriors who rode the mighty bull (when availabilit, but most times female cow)
Sure thing Nigel

India lost to crooked-toithed manlets on a boat from the other side of the world??

>what is rajput
>China had youxia
Youxia aren't a warrior class, they're just the name for armed adventurers like mercenaries or militiamen, usually in service of the law or some righteous ideal.
The actual Chinese Knight equivalent was the Shi. Nowaday's its the formal address for any Chinese gentleman, but during the Zhou/Pre-unification period, they were the feudal warrior-bureaucrat class of Zhou Kings & Nobles. In peace their served their feudal lords as bureaucrats and in war they fought as chariotborne armored warriors who were also tasked to recruit and maintain footsoldiers for their lord's armies. They were the only ones permitted to serve militarily and thus the only non-nobles allowed to own and carry weapons.
China's warrior class disappeared early in its history as said classes tend not to survive prolonged total warfare. In the brutal world of the Post-Zhou Warring States period (700s-200s BC), Dukes & Kings lost thousands of Shi in long campaigns, lost battles, and general attrition. As the warrior class couldn't refill its ranks quick enough, Chinese kings opened up military service to commoners as either volunteers and warriors, which in turn decreased reliance upon the nobility in favor of a central bureaucratic government that is able to control and direct state resources in a total war effort. By 400s BC, Chinese warrior culture died and was replaced by a military culture.
wasnt being soldier actually seen dishonorable and a some sort of slavery in Chinese society?
No, it actually was seen quite highly by the commoners as one of the few ways anyone could rise in power since being an educated bureaucrat isn't accessible to anyone.
Among the Confucian Scholar-Bureaucrat Aristocracy they are generally wary vs. military men for their tendency to go rogue, go warlord, or defy the government for personal interests. Like a modern government the Scholar-Bureaucrat tends to believe more on Civil > Military authority as necessary for a state's stability.
>No, it actually was seen quite highly by the commoners as one of the few ways anyone could rise in power since being an educated bureaucrat isn't accessible to anyone.
then why people who fail the imperial exam didnt simply enter the military exams intead? They either returned to life or changed their lives from now that day drastically (for example becoming a rebel).
>Among the Confucian Scholar-Bureaucrat Aristocracy they are generally wary vs. military men for their tendency to go rogue, go warlord, or defy the government for personal interests.
maybe that is why military jobs were not preferred it is like the "Sword of Damocles"
>then why people who fail the imperial exam didnt simply enter the military exams intead?
They did. There's a reason why only 2 Chinese Dynasties ran conscript armies: military service was seen as a very profitable and easy way to climb the social ladder if you're a peasant and one of the few salaried jobs available to non-bureaucrats. You don't even have to join the military: if you're a privately raised warband of noted prowess the government might recognize your capability and commission a rank for you. Many bandits & pirates got rehabilitated that way lmao.
>maybe that is why military jobs were not preferred
What the Scholar Bureaucrats want =/= what Chinese Commoners wanted.
You know what the Scholar Bureaucrats actually hated more than rebellious military men? Merchants. The Scholar-Gentry thought that if left to themselves they were parasites who profited from the labor of others and use their wealth for their own gain rather than for the benefit of the country. And yet despite whatever opinions the Scholar-Gentry had against Merchants, entrepreneurship is highly respected in Chinese society and the merchants formed a de facto 3rd aristocratic class despite their technically low social status (at the bottom of the Confucian Social ladder, even below the Farmer).
India has Nihangs, a Sikh sect, that roams Northen India protecting Sikh temples and rural Sikhs

Pajeets are truly shameless
Gentleman , as an European, I can truly and wholeheartedly say that my shit is whiter, cleaner and even smells better than the average Indian.
They are a disgusting , smelly race and the only way to clean their lands is through holy nuclear fire.
>I can truly and wholeheartedly say that my shit is whiter, cleaner and even smells better than the average Indian.
