    Solution:

    The town of Hooghly present in Bengal is the port that had trade links with Southeast Asian ports. Hooghly is one of the pre-colonial ports present in India which thrived before the advent and establishment of the machine industries in England. Back in the time, India held a dominant position in the international market and controlled all trade of textiles. Being a major producer of fine-quality silk and cotton, Indian textiles held supreme importance in the international market. Other than Hooghly, towns like Masulipatnam on the Coromandel coast also served as an important port that linked India to the Southeast Asian ports, and the city of Surat on the Gujarat coast, which linked India with Gulf and the Red Sea ports.
