India is like no other country. Examine India's ancient culture, dating back 4,500 years ago, beginning with the Harappan civilization. Delve into such questions as:
- How did racial discrimination lead to the caste system and what has perpetuated it?
- Why did Buddhism flourish, then wither away?
- Why does Indian culture conceive of time differently than Western civilization?
- How can thousands of pilgrims bathe in such close quarters in the Ganges yet contract so few diseases?
These and other topics will stimulate your learning experience and appreciation of a distinctive culture.
