About India


         The history of India dates back to 5000 years back when India's first major civilization flourished along the Indus River valley. The Indus civilization at one point of time extended nearly a million square kilometers across the Indus river valley and existed at the same period as the ancient civilizations of Egypt and Sumer but far outlasted them. Aryans came around 1500 BC and were mainly responsible for collapse of Indus Valley civilization. The Four Vedas or the important books of Hinduism/India were compiled in this period.

The modern India got its independence from Britain in 1947 after a long struggle led mostly by Mahatma Gandhi. However, the country was divided into two countries, in the process of becoming independent. Post independence, India has made huge progress in spite of great problems, and has developed its industry and its agriculture, and has maintained a system of government which makes it the largest democracy in the world.
