INDIA is one of the oldest civilisations in the world with a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage. It has achieved multifaceted socio-economic progress during the last 59 years of its Independence. India has become self-sufficient in agricultural production, and is now the tenth industrialised country in the world and the sixth nation to have gone into outer space to conquer nature for the benefit of the people. It covers an area of 32,87,263 sq km, extending from the snow-covered Himalayan heights to the tropical rain forests of the south. As the seventh largest country in the world, India stands apart from the rest of Asia, marked off as it is by mountains and the sea, which give the country a distinct geographical entity. Bounded by the Great Himalayas in the north, it stretches southwards and at the Tropic of Cancer, tapers off into the Indian Ocean between the Bay of Bengal on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west. Lying entirely in the northern hemisphere, the mainland extends between latitudes 84' and 376' north, longitudes 687' and 9725' east, and measures about 3,214 km from north to south between the extreme latitudes and about 2,933 km from east to west between the extreme longitudes. It has a land frontier of about 15,200 km. The total length of the coastline of the mainland, Lakshadweep Islands, and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands is 7,516.6 km.

Neither was an army ever sent outside the country by the Indians nor did any outside army ever invade their country and master them, except that with Heracles and Dionysus and that in our times with the Macedonians.- Megasthenes in His Indika The Indian people are said to live very long lives, over one hundred years.Polygamy is a common practice Strabo remarks that their customs are simpler than the Greeks, but they do have a fondnes for jewelry. - Strabo's Account of India

Starting way back from the Indus Civilization... It begins with a mysterious culture along the Indus River and in farming communities in the southern lands of India. The history of India is punctuated by constant integration of migrating people with the diverse cultures that surround India. Available evidence suggests that the use of iron, copper and other metals was widely prevalent in the Indian sub-continent at a fairly early period, which is indicative of the progress that this part of the world had made. By the end of the fourth millennium BC, India had emerged as a region of highly developed civilization.the saga of India had a complex web of many dynatys,foreign Invasions and still standing with all the Pride..

A very brief account of Indian History is Presented Here.. We try to provide more details in the India History Section..

Indus Civilization

Great Bath Mohenjo-Daro
Great Bath:Mohenjo-Daro
South Asia's first cities were established around 2600 B.C. in what is now Pakistan and western India.The peoples who built and ruled these cities belong to what archaeologists refer to as the Harappan Culture or Indus Civilization. This civilization developed at approximately the same time as the early city states of Egypt and Mesopotamia.Although there were economic and cultural contacts between these early urban societies, significant differences are seen in their respective artistic styles, symbols, technologies and social organization. These differences can be attributed to the fact that each civilization evolved from local cultures which have roots extending back to the earliest Neolithic farming and pastoral communities, dating in Pakistan and India to around 6500 B. C..During the full urban phase of this civilization, there is evidence for trade contact with the surrounding cultures in the Arabian gulf, West and Central Asia and peninsular India.Read More...

Ancient India & Indian History..

The Vedic civilization is the earliest civilization in the history of ancient India associated with the coming of Aryans. It is named after the Vedas, the early literature of the Hindu people. The Vedic Civilization flourished along the river Saraswati, in a region that now consists of the modern Indian states of Haryana and Punjab. Vedic is synonymous with Aryans and Hinduism, which is another name for religious and spiritual thought that has evolved from the Vedas. The largely accepted view is that a section of Aryans reached the frontiers of the Indian subcontinent around 200 BC and first settled in Punjab and it is here, in this land, where the hymns of Rigveda were composed.The Ramayana and Mahabharata were the two great epics of this period.

The advent of Buddhism is the first stand-point in the annals of India.Buddha was born in BC 560 and died at the age of eighty in BC 480. The place of his birth was a grove known as Lumbini, near the city of Kapilavastu, at the foot of Mount Palpa in the Himalayan ranges within Nepal. Buddha, whose original name was Siddhartha Gautama, was the founder of Buddhism, the religion and the philosophical system that evolved into a great culture throughout much of southern and eastern Asia.

Alexander and his army reached the mouth of the Indus in July 325 BC, and turned westward for home.The Mauryan Empire, The Gupta Dynasty , Harshavardhana, The Pallavas, The Chalukyas... Ruled the Indian territory.Sangam literature flourished in the early centuries. The history continues... Please click here to know more

The Village communities are little republics having nearly everything they can want within themselves and almost indepenent of any foreign relations.They seem to last when nothing else losts.Dynasty after dynasty remains the same;Revolution suceeds to revolution;Hindu,Pathan,Moghul,English,Sikh are all masters in turn;but the Village communiy remains the same-Lord Metcalf
