...1. Introduction India is a country in the eastern part of the world. It’s the second most populated country and also has a very populous democracy. In India one-fourth of the population is urban, and three-fourth is rural. British took over India in the early 19th century and ruled it for three-hundred years.

Some of India’s great cities include Bombay (Mumbai), Calcutta, Madras, Bangalore, Delhi, and Hyderabad. New Delhi is the country’s capital.

...Before arriving in India, I had no idea what to expect. I knew the trip was going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity but I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into. Now that I am back and have had time to reflect on the trip, I have to say that it was amazing and I experienced things I will never forget. Throughout everything we did and saw, the one thing that surprised me the most was how great the people of India were. I never know what to expect going to a totally different culture, but I have to say the kindness we experienced from people in India was amazing. People were always willing to help us any way that they could. Whether it was the hotel employees, the bus crew, restaurant staff, bystanders on the street, or even those living in absolute poverty, the people of India were always smiling at us and wanting to know where we were from. Most people would think that they were always looking for a rupee or two, but that was not the case. They were genuinely glad that we were in their country and wanted to make sure that we had the best experience possible. It was inspiring and amazing and I think we could all learn of a lot from them. India was an eye-opening experience and it absolutely gave me an appreciation for how fortunate I am and it really put life into perspective. It made me realize what’s important and what I really value in life. There were times when I found myself frustrated, dirty, exhausted and ready to throw in the towel, but......

...Indian culture uses rich and beautiful colors in all aspects of life, whether you see it through rugs and paintings, or through textiles and architecture. “The Indian culture is rooted in colorful traditions that date back to ancient history.”( Kohler, 2000-2011) A civilization known as Harappa, created a religion that is considered the oldest living religion. We know this religion as Hinduism. “India has traditionally been one of the most religiously tolerant in the world.”( Robinson, 2012) “However in 1998, a Hindu nationalistic political party the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) controlled the government of India. The linkage of religion, the national government, and nationalism led to a degeneration of the separation of church and state in India and a decrease in the level of religious tolerance in that country.”(Robinson, 2012) An increase of anti-Christian violence was one result of this linkage. With the later change in government, the level of violence has gone down, and India is a country of relative religious tolerance and peace. Culture and food go hand and hand in India. Indian food represents the family and community connecting and sharing socially. “Indian dishes are commonly cooked with distinct spices and herbs that awaken your senses.”(Kohler,2000-2011) Five essential spices, namely mustard, fenugreek seed, cumin seed, aniseed, and black cumin seed are commonly used. The Indian culture survived two hundred years of British rule and held their traditions......

...the Partition of India? By Kallie Szczepanski, http://asianhistory.about.com/od/india/f/partitionofindiafaq.htm Victims of the Delhi Riots are removed from the streets after the Partition of India, 1947 Hulton Archives / Getty Images Question: What was the Partition of India? Answer: The Partition of India was the process of dividing the subcontinent along sectarian lines, which took place in 1947 as India gained its independence from the British Raj. The northern, predominantly Muslim sections of India became the nation of Pakistan, while the southern and majority Hindu section became the Republic of India. Background to Partition In 1885, the Hindu-dominated Indian National Congress (INC) met for the first time. When the British made an attempt to divide the state of Bengal along religious lines in 1905, the INC lead huge protests against the plan. This sparked the formation of the Muslim League, which sought to guarantee the rights of Muslims in any future independence negotiations. Although the Muslim League formed in opposition to the INC, and the British colonial government attempted to play the INC and Muslim League off one another, the two political parties generally cooperated in their mutual goal of getting Britain to "Quit India." Both the INC and the Muslim League supported sending Indian volunteer troops to fight on Britain's behalf in World War I; in exchange for the service of more than 1 million Indian soldiers, the people of India expected......

...INDIA INFO FROM ANOTHER STUDENT: WEEK 9 Discussion 1 India, a country rich in history, is a brilliant example of what Kashima (2001) defines as cultural dynamics, which is the phenomenon of cultural stability and change, in that parts of the culture are experiencing rapid change while others are staying the same, happen simultaneously.  India is a collectivist culture which is experiencing a state of juxtaposition between East and West as it starts to grow economically and globally while it fights long entrenched cultural values that are in conflict with its stated values.  It has both system oriented as well as a practice oriented culture(s) in that a third gender is allowed by law but homosexuality is illegal and female infanticide, domestic violence and Dowry Deaths still occur with high rates of frequency.  While the country has, and is supposed to be supported by, a democratic constitution that claims to promote equality, it has a history and culture that practices the opposite that still lingers today.   India, being a collectivist culture, has historically placed great emphasis on controlling one's emotions and anger in public; however, in a study done by Raval, Raval & Becker, 2012  found that of the juveniles convicted of violent crimes, the father displayed anger and hit family members.  This theme of the social non acceptance of openly displaying anger but turning a blind eye towards domestic violence can also be seen in the common terminology “Dowery......

...Ask not what you can do for your country No country is perfect, but a country can be made perfect by its citizens’ contributions. Our country, India, is a developing country. It needs the contributions of its citizens. But its citizens are least bothered about it and most of them think “What can I do? It’s the duty of the government, isn’t it?” But on contrary only we the people of India can bring about the changes in our country. Today, every citizen of India complains about the corrupt officials and ministers of our government. Ask any child about what he wants to become when he grows up and his answer is teacher, engineer or doctor. But no one says a “Politian”. But why not become a politician? As a result of the common perception about politicians being corrupt, India does not have too many honest, efficient and intelligent students who have contributed in other fields had contributed to the field of politics also, today India would have been a far more developed than it is today. We say that we don’t have proper facilities in India, but we must not forget that half of the population of India doesn’t pay taxes and it is commonly felt that quite a large percentage of the taxes that are collected go into the pockets of corrupt bureaucrats and ministers. Then we complain about the lack of cleanliness in our country. We say that our government is doing nothing to keep our country clean and green!

...India Introduction India is located in southern Asia, bordering the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, between Burma and Pakistan. It is the world's seventh largest country and second only to China in terms of population. India has long been a country plagued with poverty, but is now building itself and its economy. It is accomplishing this with new entries into the world market and a different outlook on economics. The future of India is uncertain for the moment, but the opportunity for growth and prosperity is most assuredly present. It will take time for India to emerge as a nation free from its problems, but is plausible with international trade. India’s Culture and Its Economic Implications India is certainly a country that is rich in history and culture. India acquired its independence from Britain on August 15th in 1947. Unlike the American and French revolutions, the Indian revolution was one of peace and temperament. The diversity that now exists within the borders of India is evident in the colorful mix of languages, ethnicity, and religious beliefs. As a throwback to the era of British rule, English is most important language for national, political, and commercial communication. However, Hindi is the national language and primary tongue of 30% of people. There is also a blend of several other languages that are spoken throughout India such as Bengali, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil, Urdu, Gujarati, Malayalam, Kannada, Oriya, Punjabi, Assamese, Kashmiri, Sindhi,...
