Presence of Illegal Bangladeshi Immigrants: A Grave Threat to India’s Internal Security
The illegal immigrants from Bangladesh who are present in large numbers in India poses a grave threat to India’s internal security. It is found that there are around 10-20 million illegal Bangladeshi migrants in India. Unchecked and unregulated migration flows together with high fertility rates could create an alarming situation.
Though attempts have been made in India to prevent illegal migration, they have been relatively weak. The 25-member committee, led by Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sushma Swaraj, took note of reports that counterfeit notes were in large circulation along the India-Bangladesh border and presence of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants in large numbers poses a grave threat to India’s internal security and the government should take it seriously and strictly monitor their movement.
It took cognisance of reports that illegal Bangladeshi migrants were able to secure ration cards, driving licences, voter identity cards and even PAN cards. Media reports have attributed claims to the intelligence sources that terrorist groups have been recruiting Bangladeshis in India. It has also been reported that certain Bangladeshi insurgent groups were involved in the terrorist incidents in our country.
Illegal Bangladeshi Migrants are also threat to language and culture of Assam. ULFA which arose as a protest against Bangladeshis lost credibility only when its leaders took shelter in Bangladesh after the Bhutanese operation against the group in December 2003. Arrest of Bangladeshi national S. M. Alam in January 2008 by Assam Police revealed ISI’s plan to turn northeast into a volatile region. The migrants have also spread into other places like Dimapur and Kohima. The illegal...
The History of India begins with the Indus Valley Civilization and the coming of the Aryans. These two phases are generally described as the pre-Vedic and Vedic periods. The earliest literary source that sheds light on India's past is the Rig Veda. It is difficult to date this work with any accuracy on the basis of tradition and ambiguous astronomical information contained in the hymns. It is most likely that Rig Veda was composed between 1,500 B.C. and 1,000 B.C. In the fifth century, large parts of India were united under Ashoka.
The 6th Century B.C. was a period of great tumult in India. The kingdom of Magadha, one of the 16 great Janapadas had become paramount over other kingdoms of the Ganges Valley. This period also saw the emergence of various heterodox sects in India. This was the time when Buddhism and Jainism emerged as popular protestant movements to pose a serious challenge to Brahmanic orthodoxy.
This period was followed by the Mauryas of whom the most famous was Ashoka the Great. The boundaries of his empire extended from Kashmir and Peshawar in the North and Northwest to Mysore in the South and Orissa in the East - but his fame rests not so much on military conquests as on his celebrated renunciation of war.
For the next four hundred years (after the great Mauryas), India remained politically disunited and weak. It was repeatedly raided and...

Christianity became very popular in the ancientworld for a number of reasons. When Christianity entered the ancientworld, the Romans accepted it, but then they started disliking throughout time Christians because of the way they figured out things. So why did Christianity get so popular anyways? The expansion of Christianity was because to god everyone was made equally, Christians handled everything in a nonviolent way, and because of how Christianity was spread.
Jesus made everyone equally; It didn’t matter whether you were a man, or a woman, slave, rich or poor. In the letters of Paul in document D, it says, “... in Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek, neither male nor female, neither slave nor free… Here is a community that invites you, which makes you an equal with all other members of that community.” What this means is that Jesus doesn’t care what your status is. Every single person was made under God’s image. You were made the way you are for a reason. Which people really liked hearing because it gave them hope. Also, in document C, it says, “But this religion is saying that every person, man,woman, child, slave, barbarian, no matter Who, is made in the image of God and is therefore of enormous value in the eyes of God.” meaning everyone was made unique for a specific reason. Also, in document B, everyone was made equally under God’s image. The Romans had immortality, and the Christians did too. The...
...Since before the Common Era, mankind has placed a large importance on the evolution of health and medicine. The first medical texts date back thousands of years to ancient Egypt, and over these many years medicine has evolved. As practical medicine has evolved throughout history, so too has human sexuality, sexual health, and even contraception – the logical path of course, as without procreation this essay would not be written today. Though sex allows the human species to carry on, the fact of the matter is that throughout antiquity and the middle ages, the use of contraceptive methods of birth control were equally, if not more important and prevalent as the use of contraceptives in the modern age. Though modern science has led to breakthroughs in proven methods of contraception, those who lived in ancient and medieval times turned to herbal compounds, and even physical means of controlling the birth of a child. Dating back to the ancient Greek practice of “exposure”, the development of oral contraceptive herbal compounds, male withdrawal, and barrier protection methods; societies throughout antiquity and the middle ages have placed a large importance on contraception and birth control, much like the current practices of today.
The practice of birth control can be traced back well before the Common Era. In ancient Greece, the practice of child “exposure” was used as a means of population control of...

MedievalIndia and China
In the following paper I will discuss the key differences in medievalIndia and China. I will compare and contrast each society’s social, cultural, political, and religious climates. In addition, explaining the civilizations economic environment during medieval times. Finally, I will describe how the Turks and Mongols influenced these two civilizations.
During medieval times, India’s social climate could be considered one of an idealistic civilization. From growing crops, to the teachings of higher forms of education, India was booming with potential. During the time between CA 300-1400, the society itself boomed with international trades of sugar, cotton, pepper, and cinnamon. The agricultural advantage was good for India because these resources were in high demand elsewhere in the surrounding regions. The Gupta Empire for example (ca 320-480) controlled large amounts of territory in India during these times, in a prosperous and somewhat peaceful way. During the Gupta Empires’ reign, it was considered a period of peace and growth. Very in tune with the arts, the Gupta kings ensured that...

The present judicial system is not an unanticipated formation. It is the result of prolonged and gradual process of Indian history. It has however influenced the present judicial system to a great extent.
Administration of justice is one of the most essential functions of the state.1 If everybody was perfect then there was no need of courts, as it is we find that man might be a little lower than perfect, so there was a need of judicial system to organise themselves and to organise the society. We need rule of law for punishing all differences and faults from the code of conduct and standard of behaviour which the community speaking through its representatives has prescribed as the law of the land. It is the human nature to have issues and to settle these issues we need guidelines in the form of rules or laws. Laws and courts have always gone together, neither laws can exist without court or courts exist without laws.
The judicial system deals with the administration of the laws through the agency of the courts. The system provides the machinery for the resolving of the disputes on account of which the...
South Asian 1A
South Asian 1A
The complexities of religion verses culture have been debated throughout the ages. Having such a diverse religious population, India has seen many arguments, debates, and parliaments questioning originality of the religions, the origins, traditions, similarities and most of all the differences of South Asian people. In his essay, “Three Hundred Ramayanas”, AK Ramanujan explores the vast range of Ramayana tradition in South Asia. He argues that there is not one Ramayana, but a myriad throughout South Asia. Despite counterarguments by other scholars, Ramanujan’s essay reveals how diverse India is in its traditions and the fact that argument sparked over his piece of work exhibits this. Although these religions are geographically and somewhat culturally related through language, customs and heritage, these religions have grown to become unique and separate in their own spheres. To unify or clump them together as one would lead to confusion and mystification. The religions and traditions of South Asia cannot be categorized under the pretext of having the same beliefs and practices. Each religion and tradition, be it Sikh, Sufi (Islamic Mysticism), Hindu, Buddhist or Jain, has similar thematic elements, which when studied in greater detail allow us to differentiate the slighter details between them.
Before looking at how religions have a common underlying theme, we must first...
