  • The Struggle of Westernization
  • India became Britain's brightest "jewel in the crown" because of its large market for finished goods and it was Britain's largest supplier of raw materials.
  • With new railroads in India, raw materials were able to be transported from India’s interior to sea ports. Most raw materials were agricultural products like tea, indigo, coffee, cotton, and opium.
  • Ram Mohun Roy wanted to westernize India so that India wouldn't be ruled by outsiders. Some Indians agreed with these ideals, but others wanted to keep traditional practices. Roy saw arranged marriages and caste systems as things that needed to change.
