INDIA 2 Abstract “India is the cradle of human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most astrictive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only!” –Mark Twain I have been intrigued by India ever since I read “Eat, Pray, Love”: A woman’s search across Italy, India, and Indonesia to find herself, and the meaning of life.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
