From the Instructor:
Hello Good Students: Welcome to History of India! India is second only to China in population and in a few years will likely be the most populous country in the world! It's good to know about it, and I'm glad you're interested. See the course info below, and realize it looks more daunting all at once than it will one week at a time. I look forward to seeing you on line. Sylvia
