First Turning The first turning is traditionally said to have taken place at Deer Park in Sarnath near Varanasi in northern India near Nepal, to an audience of shravakas. It consisted of the teaching of the Four Noble Truths (Sanskrit: ''catvāry āryasatyāni'' Jones, Lindsay (Ed. in Chief)(2005). ''Encyclopedia of Religion''. (2nd Ed.) Volume 14; Masaaki, Hattori (Ed.)(1987 & 2005)"''Yogācāra''": p.9897. USA: Macmillan Reference. ISBN 0-02-865983-X (v.14) ) and the other elements of the Tripitaka – the Abhidharma, Sutrapitaka (Sutta Pitaka) and Vinaya. The Abhidharma referred to is the Abhidharma Pitaka of the Sarvastivada school, which is a later composition not taught by the Buddha, and contains philosophy which is antithetical, one may say, to the early teachings. David Kalupahana, "Sarvastivada and its theory of sarvam asti." ''University of Ceylon Review'' 24 1966, 94-105. Later life Max Harris went on, partnered by his university friend Mary Martin (Mary Martin (bookseller)), to run the Mary Martin Bookshop in Adelaide, publishing a monthly newsletter which continued literary criticism and comment as well as listing and reviewing books for a clientele which stretched into remote regions of Australia. Mary Martin moved to India and Harris expanded the book empire with shops around Australia and in Hong Kong. He championed the rights of Australian readers by fighting the stranglehold of overseas publishers over the Australian book market, founding the book remainder industry in Australia, and taking on the major publishing houses to ensure accessibly-priced supplies for the Australian market. He also rose to the forefront of the movement against literary and art censorship in Australia and was an early voice in the Australian republican (Republicanism in Australia) movement. Champion came from a family who were already concerned in the metal trade at Bristol, his father being a leading partner in the Bristol Brass Company. As a young man he toured Europe, returning in 1730. He then experimented with smelting calamine, developing a method very similar to those long in use at the Zawar mines in India (except in scale), but no mechanism for technology transfer has yet been established. The difficulty is that a temperature of 1000°C is needed to reduce zinc oxide to zinc, but zinc vaporises at 907°C. It is thus necessary for the furnace to provide a means of condensing the vapour. He obtained a patent for the process in 1738, but the process was energy inefficient. The distillation process produced around 400 kg of zinc per charge

Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four religions—Hinduism (Hinduism in India), Buddhism (History of Buddhism in India), Jainism (Jainism in India), and Sikhism (Sikhism in India)—originated here, whereas Judaism, Zoroastrianism (Parsi), Christianity (Christianity in India), and Islam (Islam in India) arrived in the 1st millennium CE (Common Era) and also helped shape the region's diverse culture (Culture of India). Gradually annexed by and brought under the administration of the British East India Company (Company rule in India) from the early 18th century and administered directly by the United Kingdom (British Raj) after Indian Rebellion of 1857, India became an independent nation in 1947 after a struggle for independence (Indian independence movement) that was marked by non-violent resistance led by Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi).

India is a federal (Federalism) constitutional republic governed under a parliamentary system consisting of 29 states and 7 union territories (States and territories of India). India is a pluralistic (Pluralism (political philosophy)), multilingual (Languages of India), and a multi-ethnic society. It is also home to a diversity of wildlife (Wildlife of India) in a variety of protected habitats (Protected areas of India).
