Now where on Earth does humanity present itself in such a dizzying, creative burst of cultures and religions, race and tongues. Every aspect of the Country presents itself on a massive, exaggerated scale, worthy in comparison only to the superlative mountains that overshadow it. Perhaps the only thing more difficult than to be indifferent to India would be to describe or understand India completely. Here is what some literates have to say…Quote - unquote: Quote - unquote “India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most astrictive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only!” -- Mark Twain “We owe a lot to Indians, who taught us to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.” -- Albert EinsteinGeographic location: Geographic location IndiaHistory of india: History of india Dating back at least 5000 years, civilization in India has been a rich and complicated mix of peoples and religions. Harappa and Mohenjodaro were ancient Indian cities which existed between 3000 to 1500 BC. The Gupta dynasty ruled over a golden age for north India for about two hundred years (320-544 A.D.). In the 600s, the Indus River Valley was invaded by Arabs, who brought with them Islam, which took hold in northern India. The Sultanate of Delhi was established in 1206. In 1526, Babur established the Mughal empire, whose culture thrived under Akbar the Great. British rule in India began in the AD 1700s. Foreign domination engendered Indian nationalism, which eventually led to India winning its independence in 1947.History of India: History of India Divided in 7 Periods Original Indians (1700BC – 3300BC) Indus Valley Civilization : Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa People Aryans (2500BC – 322BC) India’s Root Culture The Mauryan Empire (322BC – 188BC) Spread of Buddhism Gupta Period (320AD – 480AD) Golden Age of India Muslim Period (1175AD – 1800AD) Turks and Mughals European Rule ( 1800AD – 1947AD) Portuguese, French, Dutch and English Independence and Democratic IndiaSubdivisions: Subdivisions India is a federation composed of 28 states and 7 union territories Union territories Andaman and Nicobar Islands Chandigarh Dadra and Nagar Haveli Daman and Diu Lakshadweep National Capital Territory of Delhi Pondicherry States Andhra Pradesh Jharkhand Punjab Arunachal Pradesh Karnataka Rajasthan Assam Kerala Sikkim Bihar Madhya Pradesh Tamil Nadu Chhattisgarh Maharashtra Tripura Goa Manipur Uttar Pradesh Gujarat Meghalaya Uttarakhand Haryana Mizoram West Bengal Himachal Pradesh Nagaland Jammu and Kashmir OrissaDelhi, 100 years as India's capital: Delhi, 100 years as India's capital Red Fort Lotus Temple India Gatedemographics: demographics With 1,210,193,422 residents reported in the 2011 provisional Census.
