The relationship between the People's Republic of China and Taiwan (Republic of China) was also cited as an example of this theory - they both have strong supply relations with each other and a war between the two seems very unlikely today.

Foundation for Journalism , which offered him a chance for further study in journalism at Harvard University. The crowd as well as the traders in Manama souq consist of Bahrainis as well as expatriates from countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt and neighboring Arab countries of the Persian Gulf. The souq is frequented by tourists from all over the world to experience the traditional setting of the marketplace which has been preserved over the years. The first mention is in the Silapadhikaram, written in India at some time after the 2nd Century CE. Introduced into Sri Lanka at some time after this, it absorbed earlier deities such as that of ''Kiri Amma'' ('milk mother'). Historians attribute her introduction to the island to Gajabahu I, a frequent traveller to Tamilakkam. The Silapathikaram mentions Gajabahu's presence at the consecration of a temple to Kannagi (identified as Pattini in this case) by the Chera (Chera dynasty) king Senguttuvan. India Biodiesel is now being produced locally in India for use in stationary engines and large or slow engines like those in trains, trucks and tractors. Efforts are also on to use ethanol as a substitute for petrol. Biodiesel is rapidly replacing both kerosene (which was used illegally and inefficiently) and diesel as a more efficient, cheap, and clean alternative for large engines. Today plans are being chalked out to cultivate non-edible seed oil trees such as Pongamia on barren land to use their oil for biodiesel production. The Southern Railways have been very supportive of the program and various state governments recommend planting these plants in unused areas through aid from the government sectors. Biodiesel-blends are being used to run state transport corporation buses in Karnataka. The University of Agriculture Sciences at Bangalore has identified many elite lines of ''Jatropha curcas'' and ''Millettia pinnata'' (Pongamia tree). Castor (Castor oil plant) is already a well established crop in India with several very high yielding varieties in the market. Large-scale activities have been initiated quite recently. For example, the government of Karnataka has distributed several million saplings of Pongamia to farmers for planting along borders of farmland and in waste lands. Large-scale plantations have been initiated in North-East India and Jharkhand by D1 Williamson Magor Bio Fuel Limited, a joint venture between D1 Oils of U.K. and Williamson Magor of India. The hilly areas of the North-East are ideal for growing hardy, low-maintenance plants. Most of the maps are of the scale 1:1,000,000 or 1:500,000. However, the environs of the three greater centers (Athens, Rome, Byzantium-Constantinople) are presented in 1:150,000. Some remote regions, where Greeks and Romans mostly explored and traded rather than settled (i.e. Baltic (Baltic region), Arabia, East Africa, India, Sri Lanka), are of the scale 1:5,000,000. Due to the nature of the base maps used for the background and time–cost restrictions, elevation lines (contours) were left in feet except for the 1:150,000 maps where they are in meters. The projection (Map projection) of the maps is Lambert Conformal Conic (Lambert conformal conic projection). Again due to time and cost restrictions, geo-referencing (Georeference) of the maps was left as a future separate project. Briski's interest in photography began at age 10. http: www.nytimes.com 2005 01 07 nyregion 07profile.html?pagewanted print&position After earning a master's degree at the University of Cambridge, Briski studied documentary photography at International Center of Photography in New York. In 1995, she made her first trip to India, producing a story on female infanticide. In 1997, Briski returned to India and began her project on the prostitutes of Calcutta's red-light district, which led to her work with the children of prostitutes. Her latest project ''Reverence'' Reverence is an experiential multimedia exhibit about transformation. Inspired by dreams of a praying mantis, Briski was led around the world to collaborate with living insects, taking their portraits in photographs and film. 
“My work is a tribute to insects, to their intelligence, personality and elegant beauty,” she says. The project raised initial funds through the crowdsourcing site Kickstarter Kickstarter in 2010. Commons:Category:India Wikipedia:India Dmoz:Regional Asia India
