India was a nation-state and region on planet Earth. Residents were called Indians. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure)

HistoryEdit

India underwent much strife through the 1960s - 1980s, with the deaths of Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi, as well as the secret establishment and later destruction of the facility called Chrysalis and the explosion at Bhopal. (TOS novels: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1, The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 2)

It was noted that Khan Noonien Singh rose to power in India in the 1990s decade and cemented a power base that spanned from Asia to the Middle East. (TOS episode: "Space Seed")

Abhirati Indrani was among the thousands of people who helped drive the tyrant Khan from power by exercising passive resistance. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure)

In the mid-21st century, India, along with its traditional rival, Pakistan, was a member of the Eastern Coalition. (TLE novel: The Sundered)

In the early 22nd century, Kamal Chandra was a senior vice-president of the company that owned the majority of continental and extra-planetary shuttle facility contracts on the Indian subcontinent, Patna Air and Space. Indrani was his great-grandmother.

His son, Ravi Chandra was born in India. He grew up in Patna.

In 2153, Captain Jonathan Archer included Ensign Ravi Chandra in a landing party to planet Kaletoo. Chandra presumed this was because the captain thought Chandra's experience with the Indian Thar Desert was an advantage in the desolate climate on Kaletoo. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure)

Alternate timelinesEdit

In the Kelvin timeline, India formed the core of the Khanate, the Augment nation ruled by Khan Noonien Singh, in 1996. All other Augment nations except the Khanate were warlike. The Khanate was drawn into conflict when Khan's ally Bernard Maltuvis betrayed him and the Australia-based Maltuvisland attacked. Khan's forces emerged victorious. (TOS - Khan comic: "Issue 3")

In another alternate timeline, Augments ruled Earth from India. The vain and brutal empress kept tigers in her palace. In 2263, her forces captured Starfleet officers from different permutations of the Kelvin timeline. Recognising his Vulcan strength, the empress allied with the vengeful Commander Simon Grayson, and together they murdered the other officers. (TOS - Boldly Go - IDIC comic: "Part 4")
