Also, the first figure that pops up in your mind is F. Scott Fitzgerald. The period between 1920 and 1930 had a great impact on the American history, as it was a time of change in many aspects. I. The 20s The Roaring Twenties were a period of drastic social change and prosperity in the economic department.
The origin of the idea of the Hindu Rashtra lies in the mid to late nineteenth century, in the British colonial period and is connected with the names of Vivekananda, Dayanand Saraswati and Aurobindo Ghose. But it must be noted that it is highly problematic to trace the historical origins of Hindu nationalism since Hindu nationalism itself claims legitimacy in the writings of this period. Vivekananda has thus for example become a crucial icon of the Hindu nationalist discourse, though the Ramakrishna Mission he founded has distanced itself from the Hindu nationalism. But the birth of Hindutva itself can be dated from 1920s when the founding text of Hindu nationalism and a definition
Ever since the establishment of Roman republic in 509 B.C., there were significant changes in governments, society,and other facets; furthermore, these changes were still continuing when the Roman’s power started expanding into an empire under Augustus who was entitled imperator. As the state started growing, Roman’s cultural developed as well. They had learnt about the culture of Greeks which gave birth to the Greco-Roman civilization; thus the Greek and Roman heritages were combined; then, spread all over the Roman Empire as well as its conquered territories. Traditions of the Greco-Roman or Greek and Roman philosophies can be seen clearly in many features; however, the three major and most importantaspects are: its art, literature and architecture,
The Umayyad period marks the inception of Islamic art. The Umayyad dynasty began in 661 CE and fell in 750 CE, and at its zenith of power, the empire extended from the Atlantic all the way to India and the western borders of China. The conquests of the early years of the empire are attributed to among the fastest empirical expansions the world has ever seen. The Umayyad Empire’s first caliph, Muawiyah, moved the capital from Medina to Damascus, which allowed for considerable contact with territories formerly part of the Byzantine Empire and its late classical culture. The busy early years of the Umayyad dynasty didn’t seem to facilitate artistic innovation or even any expression at all.
The Early Minoan Period: The Tombs Cave Burials Burial in caves was the standard form of burial during the Late Neolithic period in the north and east of the island. There is no evidence so far for LN burials in southern Crete predating the earliest use of tholos tombs in the Final Neolithic. During Early Minoan (EM) I-II, burial in caves continues in the north and east and lasts into EM III and even MM IA in the east. Burials in caves are almost always found in a highly disordered state with the bones of numerous individuals all jumbled up together (a single exception at Ellenes Amariou was an extended inhumation lying on its back). Often a number (but not all) of the bones are burnt.
It was the world’s largest trade industry during the 13th-15th century; the spices led to the discovery of lands, establishments of countries and raised and destroyed empires. Three reasons behind why the spice trade impacted Indonesia’s economy are shown in the Malaccan Empire, Europe and the Dutch monopoly. The Strait of Malacca connected the Spice Islands with Eurasian markets and it was crucial in its success. The trade traffic occurring in this narrow strait created enormous wealth
‘Culture’ in the old days The contestation of culture is not a unique feature of the existing Zeitgeist. By mid-twentieth century two American anthropologists, Kroeber and Kluckhohn (1952), found 164 definitions in their famous review of what anthropologists meant by culture. In the course of the 1960s and 1970s, however, culture nearly disappeared from view in European anthropology, although in the United States it did retain its value as a crucial concept (Kuper, 1999). Over the past 15 years or so, partly with the help of cultural studies, it can be argued that ‘culture’ has resumed its key position in anthropology throughout the world, which is largely due to the central role of culture in popular discourses of multicultural societies. But contemporary conceptions of culture are radically different from the meaning culture used to have when anthropology developed as a discipline within the academy in the nineteenth century.
Why it is postindustrial? Cinema as media for last two decades in the third world national has been passing through a massive convergence beyond the classical political economic format. Cinema or film industries have nowadays been completely converged in every aspect of it under large media conglomerates. Naturally this phenomenon evolves on the base of classical global industrialization toward a transnational corporate or trans-corporate convergence. Not just in Mumbai but in other areas also specially Chennai, Hyderabad cinema is witnessing trans-corporatization coverage in all respect.
Interestingly, when the Indian subcontinent was dominated by several Western powers in the medieval times, Assam was never ruled by until the British entered. The Mughals too attempted invasion into the state 17 times, but were unsuccessful. The Brahmaputra river is the state’s lifeline and enters from Arunachal Pradesh and forms many tributaries. Assam has five national parks and 20 wildlife sanctuaries including the World Heritage Sites of Kaziranga and Manas. When in Assam don’t miss the one- horned rhinoceros.
Being amazed by the world Lindsay creates is impossible even in today 's world, and considering that the book is written in 1920 almost a century ago, it becomes jaw-dropping. I got struck by the idea of back-rays which are rays that turn back to its own source and traveling at the speed of thought. But Lindsay’s imagination is much more than this, he creates two new colors that come from the second sun of Tormence, ulfire and jale. “The sense impressions caused in Maskull by these two additional primary colors can only be vaguely hinted at by analogy. Just as blue is delicate and mysterious, yellow clear and unsubtle, and red sanguine and passionate, so he felt ulfire to be wild and painful, and jale dreamlike, feverish, and voluptuous.” Apart from the colors and original sci-fi elements, characters get their share from Lindsay’s imagination.
