What influence did the Aryan invasion have in the ancient civilization of India?

First of all, it wasn't an Aryan Invasion. It was a Migration. The Aryans moved north from their homeland in South India around 40,000 BCE, according to DNA research. Some of them left Pakistan and settled in Iran and started the Persian Empire and Zoroastrianism. We know this because of glossochronology, which is a technique used by linguists to study languages and how they change over time. We know that Sanskrit was a descendant of the original Aryan language because of how similar certain words are across India, Iran, and even ancient Greece.

If you look at Zoroastrianism, you will see a lot of similarities with Hinduism, such as worship of fire. Similar structures of Gods and their holy books are called Avesta, whereas Hindus call them Vedas. Similarly, Hindus have Kathas, they have Gathas. During their migration north through India, the Aryans composed the Vedas.

Some Aryans left India gradually. Some remained in Pakistan and northwest India and built the Indus Valley Civilization.

How did the south tip of India differ from the rest if India?

Being such a diverse and large country, the differences are much larger than as found in small countries of Europe like England, France or Italy.

For example, in South India, they speak Dravidian languages like Tamil.

In north, central and west India, they speak Indo-European languages like Hindi. Besides that, the Hinduism of South India, particularly Tamil Nadu, is purer and of an older variety than that practiced in the north, which unlike the south was repeatedly invaded by Islamic Persians and Central Asians.

The food differs in spice and meat quantities, and in staple products (rice, not wheat).

However, they aren't as different as people like to say they are.

Both North and South have similar tastes in curries, spices and sweets. Most people from both still practice similar forms of Hinduism, and the basic regional clothing of both is more or less the same - dhoti for men, sari for women. Plus, despite its apparent hostility towards Hindi, many (especially young) Tamilians in urban areas like Chennai can speak fluent Hindi. Rural or small-town dwellers don't speak Hindi, much like they wouldn't in West Bengal or Gujarat or Orissa.

The Carnatic music of the South isn't the same style as the Northern Hindustani style, but they are still similar.

Its not just the south tip that differs. The far east has much in common with China and Burma, and is predominantly Sino-Tibetan speaking.

India Tourism

What is the hindrance in the development of tourism of India?

== == 1) Stress on resources and amenities A) Water- There is water scarcity all over. The big hotels are provided with water on a regular basis. Water is pumped from wells and bore wells, and water is becoming saline. The local peoples, taps go dry, and no one cares about it. B) Electricity-There is a big problem of electricity, and there are frequent power cuts, and people are put in a lot of hardship. The govt. has no systematic plan for electricity. All the big establishments are provided with lights, but not the poor. The poor cry "Give us today our daily lights." C) Essential foodstuff- The Goan has his unique eating habit common to all, that is fish, curry, and rice. This is their important dish, but the demand for fish is very high in the hotels, so the common man suffers, and the prices of fish are very exorbitant, and the other commodity is much more compared to other places. D) Transport- The transport system is not so good especially during the tourist season. From September to May the buses are filled to capacity and are overcrowded. There is no comfort, and the women are targets of teasing, pinching and so on. People getting into the buses are treated worse than animals, like herds of sheep or goats carried to the slaughter houses. E) Land- The land prices are soaring and rising everyday. The locals are given high remuneration to sell their land to the builder. A Goan is not able to buy land and especially near the coast. The agricultural land is being used to put up big structures. 2)Ecological Imbalance and Environment Degradation A) Sea Pollution- The sea is polluted and the scenic beauty is spoiled. The waste from big hotels is dumped into the sea, which leads to sea pollution and death of fish. B) Destruction of tree cover- Age old and beautiful trees are chopped to beautify the cities and tourist places. The tree, which is to act as a cover for the common man, now does not find a place and becomes a source of obstruction; and it follows that it must be removed by all means. C) Defacement of the sea front- The coastal belt of the sea should be beautiful with trees and coconut plantations, but one notices that there are big hotels that come close to the beaches, and sometimes the tourist is not able to venture into the sea because of the block created by these big hotels. 3) Socio-Cultural And Moral Effects A) Displacement of traditional occupations- The traditional occupations of the people of Goa are farming, fishing, toddy-tapping, etc. Now, with tourism, people, and especially the young generation, do not want to get into traditional occupations. They want fast money. They take on work in the hotels and sometimes are not paid the minimum wages, and also work in inhuman conditions. B) Distortion and commercialization of culture- As explained before about Indian culture, there is respect for all, but in Goa there is distortion of culture. The folk dances and mandoes that are sung are commercialized and performed in cheap ways especially on the cruises. There is an imitation of the alien life of the foreigners such as be hippies, nudism and free sex. C) Destruction of values- Women are considered to have a prominent place in family and society, but tourists considers women as things - Tu cheez badi hay mast (you are a good thing ). There is a steep rise in prostitution. Many girls are becoming a prey and act as call girls satisfying customers. Children too are abused. D) Spread of drug abuse- There is secret importation of drugs used by tourists, and slowly it has affected the youth, who are affected by the drugs, especially those staying at the coastal belt. F) Cheap labour- The labour classes are most affected. With the minimum wages they get, they have to manage with regard to food, clothing, shelter and education. With the high prices of all essentials, it is difficult for the labor classes to survive. And especially if there is off season of tourism, they have to find alternative jobs, and some of them get involved in prostitution, robbery, murder and so on. The other problem is that migrant workers take lower wages, so they are preferred to the locals. 4 Geographically vast area

One of major reasons because the country is so diverse it gets difficult to unitize the entire tourism scheme. Hence no common pass etc are possible which make traveling easier for foreign as well as domestic tourists. 5 Disregard to local tourism While the government may lay stress on providing amenities to foreign tourists it may simple ignore the same foe domestic tourists. Tourism industry has not yet been fully tapped locally.If things are made better for domestic tourists like clean and cheap hotels, lodges , pass for traveling in a specific area etc.

Can you check into a hotel at any time of day?

The simple answer is yes, most hotels run the Front Office 24 hours and if they have a room available to suit your needs and theirs they will check you in. However, most hotels have posted check-in (~3-4pm) and check-out (~11-12pm) times. If they don't have a clean room they are under no obligation until check-in time.

The best advice is to call first. Most hotels have a very good idea whether they will be able to get you an early room. Ask them.

The key person was Rai Bahadur Mohan Singh Oberoi , In 1934, Mr. Oberoi acquired his first property, The Clarkes Hotel, from his mentor by mortgaging his wife's jewellery and all his assets.
