Harappa Environment
During this period, the climate of the region was moist with humid land; dense forests grew where animals like tiger, elephants and rhinoceros roamed. The forests provided timber for brick kilns, which supplied bricks to the cities.
Date of Harappan Culture
This civilization belonged to the Chalcolithic period. In this age, a new metal called bronze by mixing tin and copper came to be produced. It was harder and better suited to meet the needs of the people. The better tools led to intensive cultivation. Iron was not known to the Indus Valley people. According to Sir John Marshall, the Hindus Valley Civilization may be dated between 3250 B.C. arid 2750 B.C.
The Harappan culture spread to Sindh, Gujarat. Undivided Punjab (including Harayana), Jammu, Western parts of Uttar Pradesh and Northern parts of Rajasthan (Kalibangan). The remains found in these places are similar to those found in Harappa and Mohenjo-daro.
Contacts with other civilizations in Harappa
The indus Vafley people had overseas trade contacts with Sumeria, Babylonia and Egypt, Thus India ranks with the ancient Western cultures of Burner, Akkad, Babylon, Egypt and Assyria.

The People

The History
The cave shelters of Bhimbetka in central India showcase a historical narrative from the pre-historic to the historic period. Around 3000 BC, one of the world's oldest civilizations flourished in the fertile valley of the river Indus. Excavations at Mohenjodaro and Harappa point to an evolved civilization living in well-planned cities. Seals, as also the existence of a dockyard at Lothal seem to indicate a sea-borne trade with Mesopotamia. Around 1500 BC, the Aryan presence is recorded. Aside from the horse, they introduced the worship of fire. From nomads to settled agriculturists, the Aryans developed village communities. Hinduism was at a very nascent stage and Sanskrit, from which most north Indian scripts are derived, was the prevailing language. The Hindu epics, the Ramayana and Mahabharata are products of this period. Social and intellectual ferment in the 6th century BC led thinkers like Mahavira and Gautama Buddha to seek and offer alternate paths- Jainism and Buddhism. When the Greek ambassador Megasthenes visited India, in the 3rd century BC, the north was consolidated into one great empire under Chandragupta Maurya. His grandson Ashoka the great (268-231 BC), however, is better known. Deeply affected by the bloodbath on the battlefield, he chose to practice and preaches the Buddhist philosophy of non-violence, both in India and abroad.

The Origin of India
The name 'India' is derived from the River Indus, the valleys around which were the home of the early settlers called "The Aryans" . They called it the Sindhu river. The Persian invaders started calling it the "Hindu river" The combination of these two words gives the India another name of "Hindustan" India is the home of worlds 'great civilizations' with a social structure that can be traced back for thousands of years. There was a time when India was known as the land of snake charmers. Then people started identifying it as the land having the majestic Taj, the ferocious Tiger and the great desert Thar. But with each turn that the wheel of time took, Indians have proven to be a lot more. And so has India proved the belief to be wrong. From time immemorial, India has been seen as a mystery and. A land full of paradoxes, it causes travelers to marvel and also to despair during their journey through India. Like an enigmatic lady, India has always attracted the attention of the world for various reasons. Indus valley Civilization: Indus valley civilization was India's first major civilization which flourished a thousand years around 2500 BC along the Indus river valley. At it's peak, it stretched across the whole of Sindh, Baluchistan, Punjab, Northern Rajasthan, Kathiawar and Gujarat. The major cities of the Indus valley civilization were Mohenjodaro and Harappa and these cities were far more advanced than the cities in prehistoric Egypt, Mesopotamia or anywhere else in Western Asia.

Magic of Eden Gardens, Calcutta
"The Magic Of Eden Gardens" - Raju Mukerji (Sportstar, 13th Nov, 1993) The portrait of Indian cricket was indelibly etched by the early English expatriates. That was 200 years ago, when in a pioneering zeal they banded together to form the Calcutta Cricket Club. In its edition of February 23, 1792, the Madras Courier reported that a cricket match was played of Englishmen residing in the districts of Barrackpore and Dum Dum.
With the year 1792 recognized by Wisden cricket almanack, Calcutta Cricket Club has come to acquire the reputation of being the oldest surviving cricket club outside the British Isles. Thus it stands established that organized cricket in India began at Calcutta.
This particular cricket match was in all likelihood played on the "maidan" opposite the Raj Bhavan. The assumption is based on the reason that a scorecard of another match played in January, 1804, survives to convey to us that teams representing Old Etonians and Calcutta Cricket Club duelled on this hallowed plot. However, the blessed land was not the final refuge of the CCC. The club ground was shifted around in the neighborhood commons until it finally dropped anchor at the present site of Eden Gardens in 1864.
Eden Gardens has an exclusiveness of its own. Ethereal and elusive the enduring charm of Eden Gardens has lent an aura of its own on cricketers past and present, young and old, competitive and friendly. Endearing and enchanting, the emerald green carpet and the earnest crowd have held tough men in flannels spellbound.

About 12,000 years ago, during the Ice Age, is about the time modern humans settled. Indus Valley Civilization , known as the earliest urban society in India, lived between 2500 and 1900 BC, or more than 5000 years ago. Their settlements covered quite a huge portion of the subcontinent, and their population estimates are well over 5,000,000. Since that time in history, India has seen many. many more cultures inhabitant their land, along with many changes, and challenges to follow. Not long before the 19th century, Britain gained political power over the country, and reined until 1947. At that time India gained back it's politcal power and declared it's independence. The subcontinent was then divided into 2 portions, being: the Republic of India and Pakistan. Shortly thereafter, these 2 nations went to war again, and in 1971 Bangladesh declared it's independence from East Pakistan.

Coming of the Europeans
The next arrival of overwhelming political importance was that of the Europeans. The great seafarers of north-west Europe, the British, French, Dutch and Portuguese, arrived early in the seventeenth century and established trading outposts along the coasts. The spices of Malabar (in Kerala) had attracted the Portuguese as early as the end of the 15th century when, in 1498, Vasco da Gama had landed at Calicut, sailing via the Cape of Good Hope. Early in the 16th Century, the Portuguese had already established their colony in Goa; but their territorial and commercial hold in India remained rather limited. During the late 16th and 17th century they remained unrivalled as pirates on the high seas; but inland the other European companies were making their presence felt, though entirely in commercial terms. The Years of 'The Raj' The newcomers soon developed rivalries among themselves and allied with local rulers to consolidate their positions against each other militarily. In time they developed territorial and political ambitions of their own and manipulated local rivalries and enmities to their own advantage. The ultimate victors were the British, who established political supremacy over eastern India after the Battle of Plassey in 1757. They gradually extended their rule over the entire subcontinent, either by direct annexation, or by exercising suzerainty over local rajas and nawabs.

Home Study Abroad India Stone Age rock shelters with paintings at Bhimbetka in the state of Madhya Pradesh are the earliest known traces of human life in India. The first known permanent settlements appeared over 9,000 years ago and gradually developed into the Indus Valley Civilization, dating back to 3300 BCE in western India. It was followed by the Vedic Civilization which laid the foundations of Hinduism and other cultural aspects of early Indian society. From around 550 BCE, many independent kingdoms and republics known as the Mahajanapadas were established across the country. The empire built by the Maurya dynasty under Emperor Ashoka the Great united most of modern Southern Asia except the Tamil kingdoms in the south. From 180 BCE, a series of invasions from Central Asia followed including the Indo-Greeks, Indo-Scythians, Indo-Parthians and Kushans in the north-western Indian Subcontinent. From the third century CE, the Gupta dynasty oversaw the period referred to as ancient India's "Golden Age." While the north had larger, fewer kingdoms, in the south there were several dynasties such as the Chalukyas, Rashtrakutas, Hoysalas, Cheras, Cholas, Pallavas and Pandyas, overlapping in time and space. Science, engineering, art, literature, mathematics, astronomy, religion and philosophy flourished under the patronage of these kings. In the early twentieth century, a nationwide struggle for independence was launched by the Indian National Congress, and various revolutionary groups. The movement was largely led by Mahatma Gandhi, with Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Lala Lajpat Rai, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Jawaharlal Nehru, and Subhash Chandra Bose playing important roles. Millions of protestors would engage in mass campaigns of civil disobedience with a commitment to ahimsa or non-violence. Finally, on 15 August 1947, India gained independence from British rule. Three years later, on 26 January 1950, India chose to be a republic, and a new Constitution came into effect.
