Euro Centric Version[edit]

I do not intend to start a debate among historians here. I do not want be crticial of the content. However, I present my view that apart from rewriting this article or reframing this article, there is a need that the interpertation should be such that it tries to show different versions and not the single version. Here in, it is suggested that Carnatic Wars started because the Mughal rule was dwindelling. The European trading companies saw the oppurtunity to strengthen their control over India. I believe that such a version is mere an opinion. It can not be called history. I have tried to add to the article by presenting the view of Dodwell of Cambridge school of historians. I believe that those come and join in may try to maintain balance in elaborating a historic events wherein they present different views about the nature of the event so that a balanced essay develops. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sumir Sharma (talkcontribs) 00:42, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
