The earliest civilizations include the erstwhile Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro. The writing of the Vedas and the teachings of Gautama Buddha are significant milestones in India’s origins. Several rulers have ruled the Indian region; few have left their mark for posterity. These include Ashoka, Chandragupta Maurya, the Mughal emperor Akbar, Krishnadevaraya (Saluva Dynasty), Tipu Sultan and the Maratha King Shivaji.
Hindi and English are the official languages of India. There are at least 29 other languages that are spoken by over a million people. Each of India’s 29 states and 7 union territories have their own independent official languages.
There are numerous religions and sects that prevail in the country, though the four major religions are Hinduism, Islam, Christianity and Sikhism. The south-west monsoon is the country’s lifeline, replenishing its rivers and water bodies. It is followed by a fog-filled winter (especially in North India) and a fiery summer before the rainy season completes the season cycle.
