By 1937, almost all of India had been conquered by the British Empire. The last major threat, the Maratha Empire was absorbed in 1818. Shortly after, Dutch India was sold to Britain in 1824, and the British government assumed control over the area from the East India Company in 1857 following the Seypoy Rebellion. After the incorporation of Danish India in 1869, onl the Portuguese and France colonies remained. The early 20th century saw many new administrative reforms, perhaps most notably the partition of Bengal in 1905. It also saw majors calls for autonomy and independence from both Hindu and Muslim communities.
It's a good map, but there a couple of issues that prevent it from getting 5 stars. First, there are far too many non-contiguous territories, which makes it very difficult to see how they connect.
Next, the bonus values (except for the single-territory bonuses) are probably too small. This places a premium on the single-territory bonuses (what I call "cities"). Unfortunately, this means the game can start out inherently imbalanced.
Finally, there are still a few broken connections that interfere with gameplay.
