Northern Europe is 1000 years behind southern Europe and 2000 years behind India? I think you got that backwards!
When both India and China were complex civilizations several thousand years BC, northern Europe was a wasteland peopled with a few, savage, nomadic tribes. It was still this way when the southern European civilizations of Rome and Greece were at their heydays around 3000 to 2000 years ago.

Yes, but this is today, not a couple of thousand years ago, and while some have progressed since then, time pretty much stood still for others.
