India



India is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by geographical area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world. Bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the south-west, and the Bay of Bengal on the south-east, it shares land borders with Pakistan to the west, China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east, and Burma and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives, in addition, India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia.


Indians date their history from the Vedic Period which scholars place in the second and first millennia BC continuing up to the 6th century BC, based on literary evidence. This is the period when the Vedas, the oldest and holiest books of Hinduism, were compiled. The earliest archaeological traces are from 7000 BC in Mehrgarh, which grew to be the "Indus Valley Civilization", which, in 3300 BC had well-planned towns and well-laid roads, but gave no evidence of weapons or fortifications. This declined and disintegrated around 1900 BC, possibly due to drought & geological disturbances. Some historians says that the Vedic people were later migrants, who encountered a civilization in decline and perhaps hastened that decline. The minority view challenges this Aryan Migration theory, claiming that the Indus Valley people were in fact the ones who compiled the Vedas.

The fact that peripatetic is a fun can be cultured by you, if you choose the tour and travel company in usa. If you succeeded in selecting a travel service provider that offers you solutions, make sure to be educated and hire a company that is credible.

India is the most populous democracy in the world. It is seventh largest country by the area and the tenth largest country by the nominal GDP. Delhi is its capital and the Mumbai is its largest country. The world seventh wonder is found there. It is the Taj Mahal. It attracts millions of people every year. It has other plenty of tourist destinations like forest, deserts, rivers, lake, amusement parks, ancient architectures, monuments and many more. I visited it about two years ago before going to new york washington bus tour. I saw its many places and hill stations. It was a nice and lovely tour of this region.

Ranthambore positioned in the east of Rajasthan amidst the merger of Aravalli hills and the Vindhyan plateau is one such destination of India which preserves an extensive range of its wildlife, especially Tigers.
