India is one of the
countries which has a rich heritage of composite culture. The impressive
remains of the Indus Valley civilization which have been discovered at
Mohen-jo-Daro in Sind and at Harappa in the Western Punjab, is the earliest
picture that we have of India’s past.
There were many small kingdoms
in India towards the middle of the first millennium BC, one of these, the
Maurya, formed the first united kingdom in India. The most famous Mauryan
king was Asoka (d. 232 BC), who is best known for his great effort to promote
Our composite culture also consists
of temples, mausoleums, gardens, statues and paintings. We find from history
that Nadirshah came and took away the Peacock throne from India.
Even today the beautiful Taj Mahal, The Red Fort, Kutub Minar, Caves of
Ajanta & Verul, the Meenakshi Temple in the south and many other temples
of Hindus represent very rich art and culture of India.
India is a land of different religions.
This country also produced several noble Muslim and Hindu Kings. The great
saints like Kabir, Guru Nanak have tried to preach religious harmony. People
following different religions live and interact with each other like one
family in this country. It is the duty, therefore, of every citizen to
preserve the rich and valuable heritage of this composite country.
