It is a motorised version of the traditional rickshaw, a small two- or three-wheeled cart pulled by a person, and the velotaxi. The auto rickshaw is also related to its Thai (Thailand) cousin, the Tuk-Tuk. In many cities in Southern India, auto rickshaws have a notorious reputation as the vehicle of operation in shady criminal activities, which range from petty thievery and "chain snatching" (slang for stealing the necklaces worn by Indian women) to murder.

They are characterized by a red field with scrolling vine ornament and palmettes with dark green or blue borders. A '''nuclear weapon''' is a weapon that derives its energy from nuclear reactions and has enormous destructive power. Countries declared nuclear powers are the United States, Russia, United Kingdom, France, and the People's Republic of China. India and Pakistan have also publicly tested nuclear weapons. Israel is also widely believed to possess nuclear weapons. Such weapons have been used only twice in combat, by the United States against the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Nagasaki, Nagasaki) at the conclusion of World War II. ('''more...

The game, sometimes referred to as the "gentleman's game", originated in its formal form in England, and is popular mainly in the countries of the Commonwealth (Commonwealth of Nations). In the countries of South Asia, including India and Pakistan, cricket is by far the most popular participatory and spectator sport. It is also the national sport of Australia, and it is the major summer sport in New Zealand, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. The rich jargon of cricket (cricket terminology) can often leave those unfamiliar with the game confused; the rules are of similar complexity to those of its cousin baseball. Cricket fosters die-hard aficionados (Fan (aficionado)), for whom matches provide passionate entertainment. Occasionally, rival nations have lampooned each other over cricket matches, provoking diplomatic (Diplomacy) outrage. ('''more...

Greco-Buddhism influenced the artistic (and, possibly, conceptual) development of Buddhism, and in particular Mahayana Buddhism, before it was adopted by Central and Northeastern Asia from the 1st century CE (1st century), ultimately spreading to China, Korea and Japan. Numerous Greco-Buddhist works of art (Greco-Buddhist Art) display the intermixing of Greek and Buddhist influences, around such creation centers as Gandhara. The subject matter of Gandharan art was definitely Buddhist, while most motifs were of Western Asiatic (Southwest Asia ) or Hellenistic origin. The interaction between Hellenistic Greece and Buddhism started when Alexander the Great conquered Asia Minor and Central Asia in 334 BCE, going as far as the Indus, thus establishing direct contact with India, the birthplace of Buddhism. ('''more... (Greco-Buddhism)''') The '''Indus Valley Civilization''' (fl. 2800 BCE (28th century BC)–1800 BCE (18th century BC)) was an ancient (ancient history) civilization that is so named because its first excavated sites, Harappa and Mohenjo-daro, were on the Indus river in the northwest of the Indian sub-continent in present day Pakistan. At its height around 2200 BCE (22nd century BC), the Indus Civilization covered an area larger than Europe, centered on Mohenjo Daro on the Indus River. The nomenclature ''Sindhu-Sarasvati Civilization'' was introduced into Indian textbooks in 2002, as a new designation for the well-known Indus Valley civilization. The addition of "Saraswati," an ancient river central to Hindu myth, is meant to show (or make believe) that Indus Valley civilization was actually part of Vedic civilization. Research which identifies the civilization's location with the Vedic Sarasvati (Vedic Sarasvati River) river system mentioned in ancient literature is speculative. ('''more... (Indus Valley Civilization)''') '''India''' is a large multicultural (Multiculturalism) country in South Asia, with a population of over one billion (1 E9). The Indian economy (Economy of India) is the fourth largest in the world in terms of purchasing power parity and is the world's second-fastest growing economy. India is also the second most populous country in the world, and the world's largest democracy. India has grown significantly, in terms of both population and strategic importance, in the last 20 years. It has also emerged as an important regional power, with one of the world's largest militaries (Military of India) and a declared nuclear weapons capability (India and weapons of mass destruction). Strategically located in Asia, constituting most of the Indian subcontinent, India straddles many busy trade routes. It shares its borders with Pakistan, the People's Republic of China, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Afghanistan. Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Indonesia are the nearby island nations in the Indian Ocean. Home to some of the most ancient civilizations (Indus Valley Civilization) in the world, India was formally ruled by the British (British Empire) for almost 90 years before gaining independence in 1947.

Producing images by the lost-wax process reached its peak during from 750 AD to 1100 AD, and still remained prevalent in south India between 1500 AD and 1850. The technique still remains well practiced throughout India, as well as neighbouring countries Nepal, Tibet, Ceylon (Sri lanka), Burma and Siam.
