Gandhi - 779 words
Mohunduras Ghandi: His Vital Role in India's Independence Mohunduras Ghandi was a man that the world thought could never exist. He believed strongly in all things that were good, and to him, there were no two ways about it. Leading the Indian people spiritually and morally, he inspired them to fight for Home Rule in which they achieved. He gave them courage to fight against Britain, and to work along side of the Muslims.

The Role Of Jinnah In The Formation Of Pakistan - 2,266 words
Father of the Nation Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah's achievement as the founder of Pakistan, dominates everything else he did in his long and crowded public life spanning some 42 years. Yet, by any standard, his was an eventful life, his personality multidimensional and his achievements in other fields were many, if not equally great. Indeed, several were the roles he had played with distinction: at one time or another, he was one of the greatest legal luminaries India had produced during the first half of the century, an `ambassador of Hindu-Muslim unity, a great constitutionalist, a distinguished parliamentarian, a top-notch politician, an indefatigable freedom-fighter, a dynamic Muslim ...

... ed into a mass organisation, and made the spokesman of Indian Muslims as never before. Above all, in that momentous year were initiated certain trends in Indian politics, the crystallization of which in subsequent years made the partition of the subcontinent inevitable. The practical manifestation of the policy of the Congress which took office in July, 1937, in seven out of eleven provinces, convinced Muslims that, in the Congress scheme of things, they could live only on sufferance of Hindus and as "second class" citizens. The Congress provincial governments, it may be remembered, had embarked upon a policy and launched a program in which Muslims felt that their religion, language and ...

Kashmir: Paradise Exposed To Hell - 1,434 words
Our group topic: Causes and Effects of Wars provoked me to write about the threatening dispute of Jammu and Kashmir which has become more threatening after the nuclear capabilities of India and Pakistan.

Due to geographical and social impacts on the world these countries have realized some big nations to resolve the issue.

Hindu-muslim Relations In India - 755 words
The strife between Hindus and Muslims date back to the 16th century. After the Mughals took over India, there was relative peace for some time between the Hindus and Muslims.

Japanese Imperialism (and Other Countries) In The 1920s - 1,118 words
After World War I, Japan began watching China with interest. Japans military leaders hoped to gain some of Chinas lands and resources if it should become weak. Soon, problems overseas such as the Great Depression and poor trade helped put that plan into action. Other countries at the same time were also experiencing the kinds of changes that Japan was. Nationalism and imperialism were becoming important ideas in the East. In the 1920s, Japan began to industrialize and democracy was put into place. Men earned the right to vote, unions formed, and women gained more freedom. Japan also began cooperating with the West in an attempt to prevent future war. As the Great Depression began in the 1930 ...
