POLITICAL RULERS OF INDIA:

POLITICAL RULERS OF INDIA

Part-II National Identity :

Part-II National Identity National Identity is, the need of the hour. India has already suffered centuries of servitude and enslavement. Perhaps India is the only country in the world which has suffered foreign rule for more than seven hundred and fifty years. The internal dissensions among the Raj put kings and princes allowed the Muslim invaders to establish their foothold in India which was prolonged for as long as five centuries.

NEED FOR NATIONAL IDENITITY:

NEED FOR NATIONAL IDENITITY on one hand we have the destitute scavenging for food in dust-bins, the favorite picture the West has of India. on the other hand we have the nouveau riche upper middle class with higher disposable incomes, whose lifestyles revolve around 12 hour work shifts, loans and malls. Sandwiched in the middle is the great Indian middle class preoccupied with getting their daily bread, keeping up appearances and most importantly; marriage. The upper class is too small a percentage to matter when it comes to national identity.

NEED FOR NATIONAL IDENITITY:

NEED FOR NATIONAL IDENITITY The sense of belonging among total strangers with which food, tobacco and advice is shared in trains and other public places where strangers are bound to be together for an extended period of time. Concerning youngsters, who respond to traditional despite their idealism and rebellion. Concerning the idolization of women where, even if fraught with double standards, she is idolized more than objectified and a value called respect for women exists in interaction with her. A myriad values and sentiments like these make up the Indian value system, which has somehow permeated through all cultural, class and geographical boundaries.

What is national identity? :

What is national identity? National identity is the person's identity and sense of belonging to one state or to one nation, a feeling one shares with a group of people, regardless of one's citizenship status. National identity is not inborn trait various studies have shown that a person's national identity is a direct result of the presence of elements from the "common points" in people's daily lives: national symbols, language, national colours , the nation's history, national consciousness, blood ties, culture, music, cuisine, radio, television , etc

Components of National Identity:

Components of National Identity A common culture, customs and traditions A common language Common ancestry A common history and a common destiny A common political and legal system Common rights and duties A common system of social security/welfare A national economy A national army Common borders A feeling of national pride National independence and sovereignty Our national character Our national symbols (the flag, the national anthem, etc.)

Ethnic and National Identity :

Ethnic and National Identity The term “ ethnicity” first appeared in the 1950s in the English language. It is first recorded in a dictionary in the oxford English Dictionary of 1953. The terms ethnicity and ethnic group are derived from the Greek word ethnos , normally translated as "nation ". The terms refer currently to people thought to have common ancestry who share a distinctive culture . The term nationality depending on context may either be used synonymously with ethnicity, or synonymously with citizenship .

Terminologies of Ethnicity:

Terminologies of Ethnicity “Ethnic identity ” and “ ethnic origin ” refer to the individual level of identification with a culturally defined collectively, the sense on the part of the individual that she or he belongs to a particular cultural community. “Ethnic origin ” likewise refers to a sense of ancestry and nativity on the part of the individual through his or her parents and grandparents . An Ethnic group (or ethnicity) is a group of people whose members identify with each other, through a common heritage, often consisting of a common language, a common culture (often including a shared religion) and/or an ideology that stresses common ancestry or endomony .

Terminologies of Ethnicity:

Terminologies of Ethnicity “ Ethnocentricism ” is often used in social psychology on an individual or interpersonal level as a synonym for disdain of the Stanger. But it can also have a collective historical referent, as the sense of uniqueness, centrality, and virtue of an ethnie in its relation with the other ethnies . “ Ethnicism ” is more rarely used. It refers to movement of protest and resistance by and on behalf of ethnies against oppressive or exploitative outsiders .

Cultural Pluralism, National Identity and Development: The Indian Case in the light of A. R. Momin:

Cultural Pluralism, National Identity and Development: The Indian Case in the light of A. R. Momin Every civilization evolves certain unique features of its own which, in their entirety and inter-relatedness, constitute its dominant configuration and differentiate it from other civilizations. Indian civilization is distinguished from other civilizations of the world in respect of its continuity and heterogeneity , its accommodating ethos and its composite character .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Since the middle of the second millennium bc , Indian civilization has played host to several streams of migrant groups and communities from different parts of the world. The advent of the Aryans, the Tibeto-Burman speaking Mongoloid groups, the Kushans , the Sakas , the Greeks, the Huns, the Arabs, the Persians, the Turks and the Mongols at different points of time testifies to the pervasiveness of the migration process during the successive periods of Indian history. The migrant groups and communities brought their respective traditions and behaviour patterns from their native lands . In the course of time they lost contact with their places of origin and underwent an extensive process of indigenization. The process of adaptation and interaction among the various groups brought about, on the one hand, India’s characteristic diversity and, on the other, a composite cultural tradition. This fact is borne out by historical sources and contemporary surveys as well as researches in folklore.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Archaeological evidence points to the existence of commercial and cultural relations between the borderlands of north-western India and Iran and Central Asia even before the dawn of the Harappan Culture. The Harappan civilization had extensive trade and cultural contacts with Mesopotamia, Persia, Afghanistan and the Mediterranean world. The process of acculturation which was set into motion as far back as the third millennium bc continued unabated during the successive periods of Indian history and led to the intermingling of a variety of cultural traits and features.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Four important and interrelated dimensions of the process of acculturation in ancient India deserve mention. One of them is the diffusion of cultural traits and technology the second relates to miscegenation the third comprises the process of Aryanization or Sanskritization the fourth refers to the incorporation and assimilation of regional, as well as foreign, beliefs, rituals and .
