Around 2000 BC people called Aryan started invading India This process
Around 2000 B.C. people called Aryan started invading India. This process continued to approximately 1000 B.C. Aryan tribes were led by kings.

The various sacrifices of the Aryan cults were accompanied by chanted hymns. These hymns comprised the first great religion work of the Aryans - the Rig Veda. The Veda and the Brahmins, the priests, came to hold a

Some of the civilizations we have studied developed in relative isolation (e.g. Egypt, the Bantu culture) but most are clearly developed by the interaction and migration of different peoples as they come together to form new societies. Considering the examples of Persia and India, how were those cultures formed and what specific techniques did they employ to create a relatively unified society out of diverse peoples.

Many organizations have come ahead with their endeavor to equalize gender inequality. Results have been very little, not because of any lapses by them but the major obstacle to equal opportunity is the social structure that discourages women’s economic growth. Can be achieved only by joint efforts of pare

A Brief History Of Buddhism
A Brief History Of Buddhism Buddhism is one of the major religions of the world. It was founded by Siddhartha Guatama (Buddha) in Northeastern India. It arose as a monastic movement during a time of Brahman tradition. Buddhism rejected important views of Hinduism. It did not recognize the validity of the Vedic Scriptures, nor the sacrificial cult which arose from it. It also questioned the authority of the priesthood. Also, the Buddhist movement was open to people of all castes, denying that a p

Despite his final words of comfort, his followers were devastated at his departure. His favorite disciple Ananda had his body cremated by his friends in Kusinagara. Ten neighboring rulers demanded that his relics and ashes be divided among them, but they could not agree on how to do it. The people of Kusinagara refused. The dispute threatened war, which seems absurd, considering the teachings of Buddha are based on peace. The crisis soon passed, however, when the relics were divided by a wise m

Essay-Hinduism and Buddhism The idea of “religare” or binding oneself back to one’s religion is key to many religions. In Christianity, we bind our selves back to the truth unveiled through scripture, myths, tradition, and the church’s teachings. Hinduism, however has a much different interpretation of the idea of binding oneself back. There really is not a whom or what that I can put my finger on. We all came from one God and we must get back to God. But how can one go about doing that? A Hind

Generally feminism means the advocacy of women's rights to full
Generally, feminism means the advocacy of women's rights to full citizenship--that is, political, economic, and social equality with men. Feminism encompasses some widely differing views, however, including those advocating female separatism. Modern feminism, which was born with the great democratic revolutions of the 18th century (American and French), differed from its precursors in applying the democratic implications of the rights of man and the citizen to women as a group.
