BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY: BLACK PEOPLE IN INDIA :

Their are small communities like Jambur scattered along India west coast. They are the home to the descendants of Africans who arrived on the Indian continent thousands of years ago. Many of them travelled there as Mercenaries, Merchants and Sailors. The trade between East and Southern Africa and Gujarat in India was established more then 2000 years ago. Many of the Indian Kings and Princes recruited African as their Ministers, Personal Body Guards and Musicians, in some parts of India and Pakistan Sidis even rose to be Powerful Generals or Kings themselves.











































In India up till Independence two kingdom ( Jantira and Sachin ) were run by African dynasties. Its a pity how little is known of Black People in India and India was a less Bigoted place a few hundred years ago.
