    Re: I wish india hadn't faced slavery.

    It's grammatically correct but I'm not sure I understand. What do you mean by "faced"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I wish india hadn't faced slavery.

    I wondered that, too.

    Once again, tufguy, it's not clear what you want us to check — the grammar or the meaning.

    By "face" I meant "confront" or "deal with".

    Are you suggesting that you wish that India had accepted slavery?

    No, I wanted to say that this shouldn't have happened to India.

    Surely you mean that it shouldn't have happened in India? Are you talking about Indian people being used as slaves, or about Indian people using other people as slaves?

    Indian people being used as slaves. Indians never used other people as slaves.
