LIFELONG

LEARNING Mondays at 4 p.m. in Activity Room 5 A History of India

India is home to some of the world’s oldest, greatest and most successful civilizations. Today, the South Asian subcontinent contains 20 percent of the world’s population and is a thriving center for global business. Over the next decade, India alone is expected to surpass China in population, making this region one of the world’s most significant economic powerhouses. Beyond the globalization of the 21st century, India has always played a critical role on the world stage. Over the past 5,000 years, a rich tapestry of people and cultures have called it their home. Two of the world’s great religions

- Hinduism and Buddhism - as well as some of humanity’s most significant wisdom literature all originated in South Asia. Furthermore, because of their strategic location and unique geography, the lands east of the Indus River have long been a central hub for trade, migration and cultural exchange.
