When we read the history of india we find how big empires rose and how they fell down . There were many attacks on this country by foreigners who plundered the country many a time. It is only the geographical position of india which made her subordinate to the alien powers .
There is bay of bengal on the east the indian ocean on the west . It is surrounded by water on the south east and south west also It is owing to this reason that india became often a soft target of the foreign attacks .
Of course there are the himalayas on the north of this peninsula . the Himalayas with its pristine glory is called the king of mountains. A good feature in the geographical position of this country is that it is a little bent towards east . This is the only reason for which india dominates even today the whole world in religious , cultural , literary as well as philosophical field .
