देश की ‘माटी’ की ये तस्वीरें आपकी आंखों में बस जाएंगी

भारत (India) विविधताओं से भरा हुआ देश है. यहां भगवान भी जन्मे हैं और समाज सुधारक भी. देश की विविधताओं में रची बसी हुई है रंग रंग की तस्वीर. भारत दक्षिण एशिया में भारतीय उपमहाद्वीप का सबसे बड़ा देश है. पूर्ण रूप से उत्तरी गोलार्ध में स्थित भारत, भौगोलिक दृष्टि से विश्व में सातवां सबसे बड़ा राष्ट्र है. जनसंख्या के मामले में तो हम दूसरे नंबर पर आते हैं. भारत के पश्चिम में पाकिस्तान, उत्तर-पूर्व में चीन, नेपाल और भूटान, पूर्व में बांग्लादेश और म्यान्मार स्थित हैं. हिंद महासागर में इसके दक्षिण पश्चिम में मालदीव, दक्षिण में श्रीलंका और दक्षिण-पूर्व में इंडोनेशिया से भारत की सामुद्रिक सीमा लगती है. इसके उत्तर की भौतिक सीमा हिमालय पर्वत से और दक्षिण में हिंद महासागर से लगी हुई है. पूर्व में बंगाल की खाड़ी है व पश्चिम में अरब सागर हैं.

प्राचीन सिंधु घाटी सभ्यता, व्यापार मार्गों और बड़े-बड़े साम्राज्यों का विकास-स्थान रहे भारतीय उपमहाद्वीप को इसके सांस्कृतिक और आर्थिक सफलता के लंबे इतिहास के लिये जाना जाता रहा है. भारत में मुख्यतः चार संप्रदाय हैं, जिनके नाम हिंदू, बौद्ध, जैन और सिख हैं. इन धर्मों का उदय भारत में ही हुआ. वहीं, पारसी, यहूदी, ईसाई, और मुस्लिम धर्म प्रथम सहस्राब्दी में यहां पहुचे और यहां की विविध संस्कृति को नया रूप दिया. युद्ध में जीत के बाद ब्रिटिश ईस्ट इंडिया कंपनी को यहां का राज मिला.

इस छोटे से इतिहास से इतर आइए एक नजर डालते हैं देश की विविधताओं से भरी तस्वीर पर…

 

 

City Palace, Udaipur, is a palace complex in Udaipur, in the Indian state Rajasthan. It was built by the Maharana Udai Singh as the capital of the Sisodia Rajput clan in 1559, after he moved from Chittor. It is located on the east bank of the Lake Pichola and has several palaces built within its complex. Udaipur was the historic capital of the former kingdom of Mewar in the Rajputana Agency and its last capital. The City Palace in Udaipur was built in a flamboyant style and is considered the largest of its type in Rajasthan, a fusion of the Rajasthani and Mughal architectural styles, and was built on a hilltop that gives a panoramic view of the city and its surrounding, including several historic monuments such as the Lake Palace in Lake Pichola, the Jag Mandir on another island in the lake, the Jagdish Temple close to the palace, the Monsoon Palace on top of an overlooking hillock nearby and the Neemach Mata temple. These structures are linked to the filming of the James Bond movie Octopussy, which features the Lake Palace and the Monsoon Palace. The subsequent publicity has resulted in the epithet of Udaipur as 'Venice of the East'
