Ancient India

South Asia is like a world unto itself. It is no exaggerations to suggest that while the Indus plains witnessed the flowering of the first urban civilization of the subcontinent, the Gangetic plains played a crucial role in sustaining and nurturing urban life, state and imperial power structure. The Indo-Gangetic plains and peninsular India are separated by central India, covering 1,600 kms extending from Gujarat to western Orissa.

People are certainly wise to see what is happening within the Congress. We cant forget how PV Narsimha Rao who was one of the best PMs during the worst times for India, doesnt get his due credit from the Party he lead. We also know how resp Kesriji was deposed. Why was he not given a second chance as against giving chance after chance to the present VP. Nevertheless it is INC's prerogative. Whether it suceeds or further fails to inspire the INC and the public will have to be seen.

Along with his militant activity, Ambedkar continued very regularly to produce theoretical and political texts on the issue of caste. As early as 1917 he published a report on that issue first presented during a seminar at the University of Columbia, and he pursued this kind of activity to the end of his life. His writings very quickly showed he had distanced himself from the strategy of sanskritization (that is, imitation of the practices of the Brahmin castes, in particular vegetarianism), which up to then had constituted the only means available to the lower castes to climb the ladder of ritual caste purity; and had embraced a radical rejection of Hinduism, in favour of the egalitarian individualism that characterizes western democracies.

Buddhism was exterminated from India for two reasons. The Muslim invaders destroyed Buddhists monasteries, killing the monks, leaving none to preach Buddha's teachings. Having been embraced by people who no longer lived by the teachings of the Buddha, Buddhism showed signs of decay around the 8th century a.d. In such an environment Sankaracharya cleansed Hinduism of its ills, assimilated Buddhism's good points, on the strength of his arguments unified various Hindu sects and convinced Buddhist scholars about the supremacy of Hindu philosophy.
