India

I love my India, my motherland, not only because of the fact that I am an Indian. But because of its reach heritage, culture and its natural beauty.

On the eve of this 61stRepublic Day of my country I like to introduce her to my international friends.

Brief History

First civilization of India starts at MohenjoDaro, Harappa, and Lothal (Between 3300 – 1700 BCE)

In the fifth century, Ashoha united a large part of India. He also converted to Buddhism, and it is in his reign that Buddhism spread to other parts of Asia. It is in the reign of the Mauryas that Hinduism took the shape that fundamentally informs the religion down to the present day.

Muslims first came to India in the eighth century and used to play a major roll in Indian Politics. Lodis, Tughlaqs, and numerous others, whose remains are visible in Delhi and scattered elsewhere around North India, were finally succeeded by the Mughal Empire, under which India once again achieved a large measure of political unity.

The European presence in India dates to the seventeenth century, and it is in the latter part of this century that the Mughal Empire began to disintegrate, paving the way for regional states. In the contest for supremacy, the English emerged 'victors', their rule marked by the conquests at the battlefields of Plassey and Buxar.
