My computer choked up when I tried to post it the first time - I thought it hadn't gone through.

Note on the edit...

I decided that naming India's first battleship after one of thirty-odd states and territories was kinda boring. Especially when I won't have anywhere near thirty-odd capital ships to name after states and territories.

So, having read up a wee bit on Indian history, India's first battleship is now the SR Dara Shikoh .

Historically, the mughals built up an extensive empire across much of India by the 1600s. Shah Jahan (who built the Taj Mahal as a mausoleum for his dead wife) got sick around 1657, and his four sons went at it for control of the empire. One of them, Aurangzeb, came out on top, after some treachery resulted in the capture and execution of his brother, and the appointed heir, Dara Shikoh. Aurangzeb would go on to expand India to its largest extent, humbling the British, but he wound up over-expanding and the empire fractured after he died, making it easier pickings for the East India Company.

In this timeline, the point of divergence in history, from which all else follows, is that Dara Shikoh instead prevailed and defeated Aurangzeb. In the long run, Hindi-Muslim relations are better, and India doesn't over-expand, leaving it better able to remove the Europeans later on...

But I digress...
