Summary
India explores the history, culture, and people of one of the most ancient civilizations in the world. A country of contrasts, India has both a booming economy and a high rate of poverty. It supports modern cities, ports, and highways, as well as many ancient villages and rural farming communities connected by dirt roads. India is the birthplace of Buddhism, the home of a majority of the world's Hindus, and also home to many Muslims, Sikhs, and members of other religions and cultures. One of the most densely populated countries in the world, it is a secular democracy that often struggles with religious strife. India was invaded many times in the course of its several-thousand-year history. Under the nonviolent leadership of Mohandas Gandhi, India threw off British colonialism in 1947. Now a strong and independent India, with its highly educated middle class, provides information technology, service help centers, and manufactured goods to the world while it works to improve health care, transportation, and other services for its people at home
