History

The findings of Neolithic tools in the Kathmandu Valley indicate the existence of civilization in the Himalayan region for long eleven thousand years. In the earlier times of the twelfth century, all the leaders with the Sanskrit suffix, Malla emerged. These kings slowly consolidated power and ruled Nepal for the next 200 years, which ended with the splitting of the entire province into two dozen states. In the middle of the eighteenth century, a Gorkha King named Prithvi Narayan Shah had started to put together what has become the actual province of Nepal today. After many bloody battles, he lastly managed to conquer the Kathmandu Valley in 1769. The rivalry between the Nepali kingdom and the British-owned East India Company started over the annexation of the minor places bordering the kingdom of Nepal, which consequently led to the Anglo-Nepali War. From here began the reputation of Gurkhas as fierce and ruthless soldiers. Integrated Nepali Communist Party had come in with the biggest number of seats in the elections of the Constituent Assembly that were held on the 10th of April in the year 2008 and had started with the formation of the coalition government that included the most important parties of CA.

The earliest traces of human civilization and ancient lifestyles in India, has impressions on the rock art engravings that are found in and around Goa. The early Goan culture forms its base with the Indo-Aryan and Dravidian migrants amalgamating with the aboriginal locals. With the defeat of the Bijapur Sultan, Yousuf Adil Shah in 1510, Goa directly went under the Portuguese rule with their permanent settlement in Velha Goa. With this began the Portuguese rule in Goa that lasted for as long as four and a half centuries. After gaining independence in 1947, India requested the Portuguese for evacuating this land which they refused. Following that, in 1961, with the Operation Vijay by the Indian Army resulted into the annexation of Goa into the Indian Union.
