The Republic Country in South Asia

-- Saranya.K,7-A,Delhi Public School[DPS]

India is a vast and a prosperous country in South Asia. It is the second most populated country in the world and is the seventh largest country in the world by area. India’s motto is “SATYAMEVA JAYATE” which means “TRUTH ALONE TRIUMPHS”. India’s capital is New Delhi and the largest city in India is Mumbai. India is surrounded by seven neighboring countries: Pakistan, China, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. India is also famous for its extravagant tourist attractions like : The Red Fort in Delhi , The Tajmahal in Agra , Pangong Lake in Ladakh , The Valley of Flowers in Karnataka , Backwaters of Kerala , Old Goa in Goa , Old Bombay in Mumbai , The Golden temple in Amritsar and Charminar in Hyderabad .

Now about the medieval India, Medieval India refers to a long period of the history of India between the “ANCIENT PERIOD” and the “MODERN PERIOD”. India is a very rich and a prosperous country due to this many rulers started invading India and stole the wealth from them. One of the great rulers is ‘SHER SHAH SURI” who was also known as “THE FATHER OF ADMINISTRATION”.

He was also the founder of the “SURI EMPIRE” in the northern part of India. I would like to share a small information about the history of India that “CHANDRAGUPTA MAURYA” was the first Hindu king of India , and he ruled almost the entire India. India is 71 years old today, Jammu and Kashmir is the only state that has its own flag, Pingali venkayya who hails from Andhra Pradesh ,invented the Indian flag, The oldest language of India is Sanskrit ,the famous port city in India is Vishakhapatnam.

Many rulers built several monuments in different parts of the country that show great significance like: Humayun’s tomb in Delhi , Jahangiri Mahal ,Agra Fort and many more. Akbar built a city called Fatehpur Sikri near Agra . One of the most fabulous and famous Haveli in India is the “SHEKHAWAT HAVELI” in Rajasthan. “VASCO DA GAMA” was the first person who landed in India. Therefore, he discovered India and also found a sea route to India from the Atlantic Ocean. There are many great people in the world who are experts in various fields, even the farmers who work all day and nights to grow their crops.

So we must thank them for their efforts to feed people. There are many freedom fighters in our country who sacrificed their life for the independence of India, like: Mahatma Gandhi, Subhas Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Sardar Vallabhai Patel and many more. In the process of achieving freedom, many great personalities sacrificed their lives to their mother land. One such great leader to be remembered is Mahatma Gandhi, who was assassinated by Nathuram Godse.

During the era of British rule and when agitations of Independence were at peak, common people also contributed to the nation by providing food, shelter, clothes etc., to the needy freedom fighters.
India was declared an independent country by the British on August 15 1947.
