India: 60 Years: 60 Words

India: 60 Years: 60 Words

Golden pages of history are indicative of the Indian dominance over the whole world in the past. In all aspects of life from spirituality to wealth India was looked upon as the leaders by the rest of the world. Social, Political, Regional and Religious situations of the land went under some drastic changes and India was no more world leader in many aspects of life, though a few sectors like spirituality and moral human behavior were still there in which Indian leadership was still unchallenged even after these drastic changes.

In the year 1947, India got freedom from the ruling of centuries by the Mugal Dynasties and British Rule in the form of East India Company. It is fact country was forced to see and suffer the pains of partition and baring a few areas, Land named as Pakistan; majority of population was still with Hinduism or Indian life style and opted for the democratic set up of ruling the country.
