History

Throughout its history India was intermittently disturbed by invasions from beyond its mountain walls, and eventually some of those raiders stayed back and by the 13th century much of the country was under the Muslim rule. The number of Muslims increased steadily until the arrival of the Portuguese navigator Vasco da Gama in 1498, after which India was exposed to major external influences arriving by sea, that caused the decline of the ruling Muslims elite and the absorption of the sub continent within the British empire. The British administration commenced from 1858 and eventually in 1947 India became independent country free from the British rule. Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Sikhism are practiced in this sub-continent and in addition, India is home to innumerable castes and tribes as well as to more than hundreds of linguistic groups from several language families unrelated to one another.
