Why didn’t an Indian culture emerge as the dominant culture like Han did in China due to Sinicization

为什么印度文化没有像汉文化那样成为主流文化呢?



I’m aware of how China became an almost homogenous nation of 1.2 bn people through Sinicization, but why didn’t India who in many ways shares similar geography produce an equivalent to Han?

我知道中国是如何通过中国化的方式成为一个几乎同质的拥有12亿人口的国家,但是为什么在很多方面都有类似的地形的印度却没有产生了与汉文化相当的成果呢?

I get why in Europe and the Middle East one super culture didnt form to dominate the west, mainly due to The Mediterranean sea, Sahara desert, and Syrian desert. But the Indian subcontinent, like China, isn’t broken up by a massive sea or desert like the west is. As well it had one of the few river valley civilizations and is one of the most fertile places in the world

我明白为什么在欧洲和中东没有产生一个超级文化来主导西方,其主要原因是地中海、撒哈拉沙漠和叙利亚沙漠。但是印度次大陆和中国一样,并没有像西方那样被巨大的海洋或沙漠所破坏。它也拥有为数不多的河谷文明之一,并且还是世界上最富饶的地方之一。
