Author/Actors/Director/etc.: Judith E. Walsh
Publisher: Facts on File; 2 edition (2010, Dec 30th).
An updated look at more than 5,000 years of India's history.As recently as the turn of the century, Western images of India pictured it as a land of religion, luxury, and desperate poverty holy men sitting cross-legged by the roadside, fat maharajas on bejeweled elephants, or poverty-stricken beggars picking garbage for scraps to eat. Now that image has started to change. Today Americans are more likely to imagine Indian workers in call centers taking jobs needed in the United States or kids winning fortunes on quiz shows as in Slumdog Millionaire.Admired for its spiritual traditions (two of the world's major religions Hinduism and Buddhism originated here), for its peaceful struggle for independence led by Mohandas K. Gandhi, and for its vibrant culture (from Bollywood and spicy cuisine to classical music and world-renowned authors), India has had a long and fascinating history. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
