World’s Top 10 Worst Countries to Visit

by Ronald Marbles on 06/11/07 at 12:11 pm

Here we will be taking a look at the world’s worst and most dangerous countries.

Iraq

You are surprised that Iraq is in the number 1 spot? Venture into the Sunni Triangle and it is like taking your life with your own hands. If you really want to visit Iraq you should go to the north of the country, where Kurds are a little less dicey for the adventurous traveler. I doubt if Iraq will ever leave my number one spot.

Afghanistan

This country is one of the top most dangerous countries, following the promise of good times to come. A few years ago two Japanese teachers were killed after venturing into the wild southern regions. Many parts of Afghanistan are falling back under the sway of extremists and it is very likely that you will experience its own fair share of terror attacks.

Somalia

Remember the movie by Ridley Scott, Black Hawk Down? It is a movie that bought the ugly conflict in Somalia for mainstream viewing. It is also good to mention that they have no central government and that has been happening since 1991. Somalia is a nice country but if you are planning to travel there, I suggest that you hire your own heavily armed guards. Daily rates for the guards vary from a couple of hundred bucks or several hundred bucks, depending on whom you hire. Failure to do so, may result in death.

Thailand

When we hear the name Thailand we usually portray a nice exotic country with wonderful beaches, exotic drinks and a good, cheap nightlife. But that is not the case. But don’t take me wrong, it is not dangerous because of mobs and a high criminal rate (yes, you can find some). It is on the list only because of the Tsunami that hit a few years ago. Hundreds of people died and that made future tourists think twice before they plan to visit this exotic place.

Sudan

The ongoing tension with the government and rebels is what makes this country one of the most dangerous. Not to mention the government backed genocide. Murder and rapes are the two most common things that one can face in Sudan especially if you are in the area of Darfur. If you want to travel to the north make sure you get travelling permits, but for the south no. One should also mention that the south has finally come to peace after the tireless efforts of the late John Darang.

Indonesia

This country is not dangerous per se, but there are so many elements of danger that it made the top 10 list. A few years ago there was the Bali bombing and also the Tsunami hitting. If you are a journalist you have to be very careful, as usually those are the targeted people.

Chechnya

It does not get many tourists but sometimes journalists are forced to go there and it is a one country that journalists fear the most. A few years ago they captured a school and held hostages just to show how far they can go.

The Palestinian Territories

Despite efforts to make their country better, this country has been doing nothing but going from bad to worse and therefore it makes it a bad place to travel to. A few years ago two people who were there to educate children were captured and later released.

Uganda

For a lot of years the Lord Resistance Army have made the region a no-go for travelers. The LRA are known for being the most evil, cold blooded murders on the planet. And it is good to mention that they force children to murder their own family members as part of the indoctrination.

Niger

Niger is the world’s second most poor country. It is a famine stricken country and there are hundreds of people dying everyday due to malnutrition. The horror is not of being murdered or raped, but it is seeing all these children being starved to death, unless food aid arrives soon.

Scary stuff, man. As if I wasn’t already less inclined to travel abroad. Though you should’ve mentioned any European countries folks backpack through, simply because of “Hostel”. ^_^

Ronald Marbles

Nov 7th, 2007

Yes I agree, I should I have mentioned those, or maybe I should make another list of those EU countries.

Scarlett Lion

Nov 7th, 2007

This is absolutely ridiculous. I can’t speak for other places, but for Uganda, the LRA is no longer active and is in fact ACTIVE in peace talks. Plus, the war was in the NORTH, while most of Uganda’s tourist attractions are in the south and the west. Do you homework.

Ronald Marbles

Nov 7th, 2007

My dear Scarlett Lion, there is no need to rise your temperature and get nasty like that…it only makes your life shorter :D Now back to your comment…I said that the war was in the NORTH and I take it that you never watched the news or went to Uganda. The LRA is STILL active, and not only in peace talks. And yes, the tourist attractions are mainly in the South, but what if you are a media person? Where would you be sent? South or North? Personally I have been sent to the NORTH. So you do your homework, my dearest and then comment.

Scarlett Lion

Dec 5th, 2007

Forgot I posted this comment ages ago and when googling myself looking for something else, came across this link.

Let me clarify: I AM A JOURNALIST, or “media person,” as you like to say. AND I LIVE IN UGANDA.

Where will you be sent? Wherever the news is. But this is a list of countries to VISIT, no? If you were making a list of countries to live in, I would STILL say Uganda is pretty damn good compared to most African nations. The ease of living here is incredible, and the violence in the North you talk about is really coming to a slow end. When was the last LRA attack? Not any time recently.

As for where media will go, right now, they’d go to where the ebola is or to other current crisis. But, there’s not much “new” news from the North. You wouldn’t be able to get many freelance gigs or clips trying to pitch something about “everything fizzling down right now… not much going on….”

Tourists come to Uganda all the time and it’s pretty damn safe. So really, I’m not sure why Uganda is on the list. The LRA isn’t going to attack anyone visiting Murchison falls anytime soon.

Umm, I’m in Invisible Children and I think whats going on in Northern Uganda is pretty bad, so yeah its okay to go visit there as long as you’re not a child, where you will get abducted and all the families there are being put in horrible displacement camps. Look up Invisible Children and tell me if you still think Uganda is better off than most African countries.

Sorry to get in the way of the heated discussions, but I was looking for places to visit and came onto this site and all these places listed seem quite interesting, different places which i would quite like to see. So some say they are dangerous, others not so much, but being a girl most places are significantly more dangerous for us than they are for men, so how many would you suggest going with to prevent the danger from being too high and is there any place which would be extremely unadvisable. What would everyone elses top 10 worst places to visit be??

thailand what the hell that is the best country to visit just because of the tsunami which was a freak occurance and doesent even generally happen there. Have you even visited thailand?

Elizabeh williams

Oct 24th, 2008

i think that Soomalia shouldn\’t be on this list because only the capital city needs help not the rest of the country. I\’ve also had the pleasure of visiting the central parts of the country this past summer and it was breath taking. the only reason why the capital city (Mugdishu) looks bad is because of the war, before the war it looked amazing. And as for the movie, the country it was shot wasn\’t even Somalia, it was Kenya.

John

Oct 31st, 2008

Guys.. I know how it looks like from the news every thing about Pakistan… But trust me I have visited there recently couple of months back. I was scared in the start but after seeing hospitality of local people I started feeling better and especially North Pakistan is worth watching.
Secondly who ever added Thailand in this list is simply I agree never been to Thailand. Islands their gives you sight of your life.

Andy

Nov 21st, 2008

i had been to many countries in my life ((almost 54)) ,
will i had to say that your list had some mistakes in it!!

1.Indonesia : will i don’t see NYC , you can’t add it to the worst … Indonesia is third best to me after Maldives & Norway .. it had excellent beaches ,nice culture and not that expensive ..

2. Palestine : 100% the opposite of what you hear on the news or find in the Internet .. actually i didn’t want to visit it because what everyone says about it , i visit Jordan and someone convince me to go there .. but believe me .. it’s amazing country and very unique , i really visited it 3 times … if you are christian you will love it more than your own country …

It had really deserve it’s reputation of making men mad …it’s the real dream land ..

michelle

Nov 30th, 2008

EVERYONE COME TO AUSTRALIA! specially Perth, i dont see why so many people go to Sydney or Melbourne….

worst place to travel…..it really depends on what your seeking, if your wanting to experience culture why not try Brazil?? if your wanting to relax go to Bali.

Terrorism etc should not stop you from travelling, thats exactly how terrorism works, dont give in!

mac blake

I think pakistan is a best country to travel. i found is very interesting and people are very friendly even the talaban are friendly by nature.

hi friends!! no body has studied about Nepal..GODDDDDDD…

it is the worst country in the world, in terms of security, and devastating life more than 10 hrs load shedding. !!! who dare to live there…the last country to live..everyone says. india is better than this.

Adam

Dec 27th, 2008

I just got back from a round the world trip and I would say Indonesia and Thailand were 2 of my favourite places to visit. Dont be put off my this article as you will really miss out. The people in Indonesia were the friendliest I met on my trip and its such an interesting country with amazing sites and delicious food and its so cheap! I had no trouble there, I didn’t experience any crime and felt totally safe.

THAILAND SHOULD BE REPLACED BY NORTH KOREA. EVERY COUNTRY HAS IT’S NATURAL DISASTERS AND TRAGIC ONES. Thailand isn’t a bad country. NORTH KOREA IS A FREAKING RESTRICTIVE COMMUNIST COUNTRY. NORTH KOREA SUCKS NORTH KOREA SUCKS NORTH KOREA SUCKS

rovic

Jan 6th, 2009

I think Thailand has the best tourism to travel by. Bangkok is the best city in Southeast Asia… Think about Burma (Myanmar), Bangladesh, India and Pakistan are the worst country to get by.

( no name )

Jan 8th, 2009

sorry if I’m a bit biased, but i am from Thailand ( bangkok ,) and I think that Thailand is not dangerous NOW, but Thailand is really dangerous THEN. Before, there was a mob, closed down the bangkok airport, etc. which might get you tourists frightened. But don’t worry, everything is over now and peace is restored to this country. If you don’t believe, go to bangkok. You might expierence traffic jams, etc. but you won’t see crimes or stuff like that. Just don’t go to the south ( below Phuket ) of Thailand, THAT place is where people are being killed almost every day.

Paul

Jan 9th, 2009

i also think that our country, the philippines should be in the list… since that our country really sucks… sucks in politics, sucks in economy, and there are also terrorist too..

just lately in the news a few days back, our country in the list of most “drugs” using country

summing up the “most corrupt” and “drugs using” list… i guess that our country will be perfect to be notified as the worst country in the world…

ccc

Jan 10th, 2009

Paul, The Philippines is far from being as corrupt as Somalia, Afghanistan, or Iraq. At least your country is getting industrialized with neat business districts.

linus

What abt pakistan?

daniel

Jan 18th, 2009

i think pakistan is a very power ful country as you know that pakistan has atomic weapon and advance missile technology.

James

Jan 18th, 2009

#33 by Paul: I think you’re just one of those terrorists or a political opposition who can only see whats bad and not even consider the good things in the Philippines.

Yes, it’s true that there are drugs and political issues there. But point being is that there’s no perfect government.

Economy here is not that stable but this is one of the safest place to visit.

Meshwar

Jan 25th, 2009

I dont think that you can talk about a country from what you watch on television.. You have to live there in order to be able to talk from that point of view. Actually the whole world is becoming worse everyday.. Before telling us not to visit any country you have to tell us who made these countries become worse and worse. So it is not the people over there who are ruining their countries as there is no one who likes to damage his own country.

Duarte

Jan 27th, 2009

India and South Africa have to be included in the list. And you AJJ, you should wash your mouth before talking about North Korea. North Korea is not so democratic but that doesn\’t make it a dangerous country to visit. Actually it is only dangerous to their inhabitants, if they decide to talk to a foreigner.

Mike

Mar 7th, 2009

I don’t think Thailand should be on the list. The tsunami was a freak act of nature that may only occur once in hundreds, if not thousands of years. Massive natural disasters can occur anywhere…it’s called earth. I was in Thailand during the tsunami, and I think that Thailand handled the disaster far better than the US handled hurricane Katrina (Unfortunately, I was in hurricane katrina too). While it’s true Thailand is corrupt, it is generally a very safe country to visit and the crime rate in Bangkok is lower than most American cities.

Jon

Mar 7th, 2009

India should be on the list, Philippines and Russia

Gemma

Mar 8th, 2009

I don’t think Thailand and Indonesia should be on the list. Obviously that you have never been to any south east asian countries and only freak out because of natural disaster cause or bombing threats. I have been there couple times for work and as tourist. These countries were simply fantastic with friendly people who welcome you and very helpful to foreigners – compare to Indians or Europeans for instance. You will miss a lot by never visiting these countries in south east asia region. Talking about safety, all crimes or bombing threat could happened anywhere even in Europe or USA.

Here is my list of 15 most dangerous countries that I am pretty sure that I won’t visit in the next coming 5 years:

1. Sudan
2. Haiti,
3. Colombia,
4. Guatemala,
5. Iraq,
6. Afganisthan,
7. Pakistan,
8. Zimbabwe,
9. Cote d’Ivoire,
10. Georgia,
11. Somalia,
12. Algeria,
13. Niger,
14. Congo,
15. Myanmaar

Iraqi Girl

Mar 28th, 2009

You made a list of the countries that people shouldn’t visit; #1 was Iraq. Why do you say that it’s most dangerous to visit, and you DONT mention that you guys (Americans) made it the most dangerous place to visit. Think twice about ur list……. and make your #1 Guantanamo Bay!
Think about the history and current life, don’t you think the top countries that are most dangerous to visit are the same countries that U.S. is in now. If Iraq is that dangerous why are you guys there, or when it comes to stealing oil Iraq become #1 BEST WANTED!

Thunder

Mar 30th, 2009

Who had made this ranking?????????? You have skip the most worst country i.e. India, It must be on the top of the list. Oh My God ! a hell on the world.

momi

Apr 4th, 2009

India must be on the top of the list,so much poverty(World health officials calling india the nxt africa because of its spreading hiv/aids.India has more hiv ppl then any other country in the world.) then i reckon Israel should be on second number.

Päivi & Santeri

Apr 4th, 2009

In our list there is only 2 countries:

- Spain: http://paivisanteri.blogspot.com/2008/11/spain-world-most-dangerous-country.html
- Thailand: http://paivisanteri.blogspot.com/2006/11/thailand-humiliates-long-stay.html

Spain earned the place thanks to robberies and Thailand because of discrimination, racism, and visa issues.

The rest of the countries have tolerable. Happy travels!

rod

Apr 7th, 2009

i agree with paul and jon. philippines should be considered as the sick or worst country in the world. just recently you were just dubbed as the country of servant and every where in the world including poor nation employs filipino as a servant. so disgusting. can’t your government do something about it. how about abductions of innocent tourists and volunteers, the findings of world bank on kickbacks on national projects despite of increasing numbers of homeless and street children. where is growth there. wake up philippines. is your president working…. how about the president’s husband. is he working too (illegal)

Pakistan is indeed a terrible place and thats why it is ranked 9th in the worst countries of the world’s list .But afghanistan is even worse and pakistan may become like afghanistan because of taliban .

Ron

Apr 12th, 2009

Pakistan is ranked 9th in the worst countries but is ranked 1st in the worst countries to visit list because every one that goes to pakistan is captured by taliban or killed by LeT.

Come on! Bangladesh is with out any question the worst country on Earth! and everyone should know it but they don’t. Because Bangladesh is such a loser’s country that people don’t even know that it exist. Come and visit Bangladesh then you’ll all realize it your self. And you’ll realize what criminal minded and stupid people Bangladeshis are. I hate Bangladesh, even though I was born in it and yes I’am a Bangladeshi but I’m also a Canadian citizen, someday I’ll be an American citizen. And I’m so glad that I’m nothing like those stupid Bangladeshis. I don’t care if Bangladesh is my mother land or not. I hate Bangladesh! and it is clearly the worst country on Earth!

First of all, this list is idiotic. The degree of danger within a country varies wildly depending on the region you are in or the time which one visits. I would be equally fearful in parts of New Orleans and Detroit at night as I would parts of Baghdad. The inclusion of Thailand and Indonesia solely because they experienced a freak natural disaster in the past pretty much sums up the ignorance of this post. If one insists on such a list, there are obvious glaring omissions. The Pashtun tribal areas of Pakistan/border towns of Mexico/the Tamil region of Sri Lanka.
This guy claims to be in the media.. I suppose that would make sense. Journalism today seems to be full of these uninformed miscreants…

i think its all based on personal opinions regarding danger…what is dangerous to you might not be dangerous to someone else. its all opinion.

the ones toking abt israel and india both as the worst countries are definately from muslim countries as all the muslim based countries hate these 2 nations…not defending both the nations but this is what i think it is…as seeing the development in both these countries, u can definately not put them in the worst countries list.

India is developing like hell… Every year world is getting 1 million it student from india so it has a good education level. i Saw poverty but it is bound to happen when thr is 1.5 billion people but if u see rich Indians u can’t even think how rich they are in thr own… In mumbai life is ossam so go and see it first.Specially night life i can bet its better thn so many other big countries.

India may be developing fast but it is DECADES away from being a developed country. They still have too much poverty. Yes, they are getting more business but just not enough for their entire population. It isn’t a bad country to visit but it is far off from being the best country in the world.

The UK is one of the worst countries in the world. They cause problems in other countries as well!

Pakistan could easily get on the list of the world’s worst countries, I am on a business trip to Karachi and my god! It smells like gasoline sweat and poop all the time, even in the hotel I am staying in, but it can also be one of the best countries as well, they such DELICIOUS food! But the only thing dangerous about Pakistan is that people drive like maniacs on the road.

Charlie

Based on the recent election in Iran, I think that they should be added to the list of worst countries in the world.

Dayna

All of these countries that you’ve listed were completely fine before the war that has happened on each one of them. I’ve been to Iraq before America raped it, it was really nice. In terms of places to go, tourist sites to visit.
Indonesia? One of the most beautiful countries i’ve ever visited, are you judging it in terms of the fact that its a muslim country?

Indonesia has some of the most beautiful beaches, spas, visit Bali, or jakarta, these are nice places to go!

Thailand? Is the one place I would DEFINITELY return to anyday, the streets, the malls, the beaches, the Buddhist sites to visit, its all extra-ordinary! Check out Phuket, Bangkok. These are fabulous places to do. I would never think twice about going to visit again. And the people that walk around Thailand, because of the fact that many are Buddhist, they’re all happy and peaceful. Everyone has a smile on their face.
I’ll admit to the risk of being pick-pocketed, never happened to me myself, but of course your always at risk of that. I was pick-pocketed in the States but not in Bangkok! If you walk around holding your purse closely, your fine!

Palestinian Territories?
Palestine was the country where all the history happened, seriously, of-course before it was completely destroyed by Israel. I know you mean in its current state its not the place anyone would want to visit, but I just want to state that once upon a time, it was one of the most beautiful countries in the world!

Tom

Jul 17th, 2009

Palistine is not a country and neither is Chechnya…Instead of Chechnya on this list why dont you put New Jersey or something like that since Chechnya is part of Russia and NJ is part of the United States

Tom

Jul 17th, 2009

Haha Dayna you are so biased and stupid…the US didnt rape Iraq saddam did it a long time ago….It was perfect before the US got there.

Palistine…Give me a break. It wasnt a country at all, that land was controlled by the British so dont cry about how israel took the land and f*cked everything up. The PLO never blew anything up before? hmmm idk but very interesting point i guess.

Also, Indonesia is on this list because there is a lot of civil unrest and it isnt the safest place to go to. If somalia had great beaches would you go there?? prolly not

**************

o and charlie. The whole election would have changed anything. The suprem leader hand picks the men to run for president, and the people pick from the selection they are given. The apple doesnt fall far from a tree in a theocracy does it? But it still should be on this list be for Chechnya, which is russia! Ill give you that.

Trust me Philippines is a beautiful country. I’ve been to Palawan, Bohol, Cebu, Baguio to name a few. People are really hospitable. It is a safe country to visit. There may be problems in the government but overall, it is a nice and pleasant country. Also, Thailand should not be in the list too. You cannot say a worst country to visit because it was hit by tsunami a few years ago.

suz

Jul 24th, 2009

Come on people. This is just a list. It should be viewed as a suggested list of places that might be dangerous. It’s not going to be the same for everyone. The cold hard truth is we are not all equal & different people are more susceptible to particular dangers in certain areas than other people. I just wanted to get an idea of places that maybe I shouldn’t try visiting at this moment due to warfare & violence. Of course this will always be changing. Prejudices & biases aside, there are some places that are inheritently violent right now, I’d like to know which ones. Of course then it gets in to the question of inheritantly violent to which groups of people. ..and so on and so forth.

iraqi man

Jul 25th, 2009

i disagree with everyone saying zimbabwe is one of the worst countries because things are now getting better in zimbabwe and things are actually well. south africa should be in this because the crime rate is way too high and most people there are very uneducated that a teacher wouldnt even know algebra equations even though shes teaching algebra
other countries like usa should be included because usa is not that of a good country its just popular but when u get in the real usa its bad. Lets not talk about things we don’t know because we might make ourselves look like fools here :)

it doesnt matter where your born what matters is the family your born in and how you use it you could be born in
1 USA and waste your life in drugs
2 Pakistan in a nice family and change the society of Pakistand, be a doctor
3 India and be a nice journalist
4 UK and racially abuse someone and spend your life in Jail
5 Australia in a poor family with no access to a good life

But most of all what matters is how you use your life, you can use the internet to create fights and racially abuse, brag your country or research about other countries and realize what you have and what you don’t

Random person

Aug 26th, 2009

wow, it’s amazing how this page could turn into an argument about the Philippines and whether or not it should be on the list…

I mean I was reading the other comments and, gosh, here we go again *rolls eyes*
Philippines was made the subject once again…

we should just accept the fact that Philippines has its good points and bad points – just like the other countries…

MAXX

Sep 17th, 2009

I see people came and wrote many comments in this topic some are hated their mother country, some hated other countries. But above thing we are born from our father and mother on the land that we have lived.

I am the people of Thailand, sometime I feel that I do not want to live in this country, it is so dull, so boring, so lack of opportunity. I used to work as the dispatcher in the car garage in the casino at USA, it paid me triple much more than I working as a lawyer in Bangkok. I hate it when some people mention about Bangkok as the city of a prostitute. But above thing when i carefully think it’s through. Where there is a demand there will be a supply.

If you go to Thailand to hook up with some prostitute, you will see the prostitute.
If you go to India to visit the diversity of their culture, you will see the beautiful thing inside this country.
If you go to Philippine to take a rest at beautiful beach, you will see beautiful beach.
If you go to Iraq to make some war, you will get back that war. (The hatred of the Iraqi people toward american people coming from the war that they were made)

At present I am satisfy as I living in Bangkok, I might not say it is the best city to live with. But I will say “I lived here happily”.

Pick pocket can happen every corner of the world, NYC, London, Tokyo or New Delhi.

You cannot judge which country is the worst amongst other countries in the entire world by using you consideration from visiting them for 7 days or 3 months or even 2 years.

The people who lived their for generation have a right to do so as they saw many thing through their ages. But in the end if it turn out in your mind that the country you lived in is terrible. It is your right to decide whether to curse back at your country and run away to another.

Or as the same time you can stand up for something, you can stand up for your parent, you can stand up for your friend and you can stand up for your country.

Do what you think it is right and best for your country, fix any of the bad thing and adjust some good thing to be even better. I knew that maybe it is hard to do so since we are only the small people but isn’t it the purpose of god that create a human to make a change no matter how small is it.

Do love your country and have a little faith in it as it is the land that you are born and will die upon it.

****please excuse me for my grammar is not strong.

Obviously this is an old list, so I would imagine the poster would not put Iraq at number one anymore, but how the hell is Zimbabwe not on the list? It’s been one of, if not the, worst place in the world to live for generations. And Thailand above Sudan?? Tbh no offence but the list smacks slightly of a hick that doesn’t know much about world affairs.

Because you don’t want to:

1. Get killed by Aids
2. Get killed by Kashmiri militants (fighting for their freedom, 100,000 Kashmiris killed so far by 0.7 million army personals…military to civilian ratio 1 soldier for ever 10 Kashmiris)
3. Get killed by Mao/Naxal militants (fighting for their basic human rights)
4. Get killed by terrorist attacks (Indian intelligence agencies)
5. Get ripped by street beggars (in case if you are white)

people tend to look at you ; that is NORMAL.
india is a great country, and it is completley safe!
Down south to the beaches is amazing and Rajasthan (the pink city) was amazing

incase anyone is interested in going, they just built their first luxury mall including Gucci, D&G, LV, Prada, Tiffanys etc

luxury stores in such a “dangerous/ horrible” country!…ohno lol

You know the English language was not invented in the USA, right?

And yes we wear sexy clothes but you are jealous because you are probably coming from a retarded Muslim or Indian country where your women have to cover themselves up.

I agree, the USA kills people but at least some of the wars we do are justified. What your people do is just go on a plane and kill thousands just because they think that’s the way your god wants it.

Grow up, get a life and open your mind.

Bangladesh is safer then India and India is safer then Pakistan. It’s better Avoid Islamic states, Isreal and Palistine. Not because they are bad people but they have bad situation. Hope oneday world will be a better place.

It is very strange to list countries without thorough understanding or research. Thailand is bad because of Tsunami? then US is bad because of Katerina and Japan is bad because of earth quakes. This makes no sense!!! Secondly anybody can notice that Pakistan is called worst by those who have indian names… I am not surprised!! Have they visited Pakistan? Do they know that 3 out of 5 highest mountains of the world are there! It is home to world’s oldest civilisation. It has earliest Buddhist scriptures. Thousands of Sikhs from India visit Pakistan every year for religious rituals and prayers and festivals. Do they know that it has a variety of languages and its national language is actually mother tongue of only 8% population.
Please get over your hard feelings over independence. Maps change.. it is normal!! Nobody kills you there. And besides, ordinary Pakistanis pay the price of extremism everyday.. they are fighting a war!

PHILIPPINES
(am I correct in spelling??)

and it is sooo much of what i am expecting.,.,

*people are hospitable.
*everyone is smiling, meeting smiles after smiles.
*everyone knows how to speak english. not the best but still trying.

i hate it NOW when i saw or heard people talking trash about the country as a whole.,.,

like the comments in here.,

i think those haters of the Philippines

are pathetic. (sorry if i’m rude)
they (haters) haven’t seen

the preserved beauty of the

One for the list should be totalitarian hell North Korea.

The people slowly die of malnutrition and starvation, so Kim-Il Jong can live his dream.

I would say India is the worst country as the people are rude, arrogant, boastful and geez they smell so bad and completely completely no regard for hygiene.

Ive been working in the middle east for years and been encountering these horrible people everyday (talk about hell on earth) Aside from foul smelling… Absolutely no manners, backbitters and liars. Beware of these disgusting monsters.

wow.. so many hatreds and prejudices..
i think there is no such a perfect country, nation or island; nor,
neither no perfect presidents or people who lives in each countries or nations.. everyone makes mistakes, every countries/nations have crimes, natural disasters or even racism.
i think we should care about the people who suffers the most instead of wasting our time fighting who is the worst and the best.
without multiculturalism, each country will be plain boring.
Be stress free.. enjoy your life and if you want to visit a country, go for it as long as you all the consequences you are going through.

1. North Korea

A vast gulag where citizens are forced to worship their ‘Great Leader,’ who lets them die like flies

2. Afghanistan

As if an endless civil war and psychotic regime were not enough, a punishing drought is starving millions

3. Sierra Leone

Africa’s most brutal war has taken life and limb, literally, from thousands of children

4. Sudan

Ethnic and religious enmities have so riven the country that it hardly qualifies as a nation at all

5. Angola

A quarter century of civil war – and the rich, feeding off oil profits, are still getting richer

6. Tajikistan

The poorest of the former Soviet republics is torn between a two-bit dictator and disgruntled warlords

7. Dem. Rep. of Congo

Plagued by every ill of our times: greed, ethnic tension, civil war, foreign aggression, AIDS, poverty

8. Albania

Smuggling is the biggest foreign-exchange earner, and criminal gangs hold more sway than the state

9. Haiti

Misrule and international donor fatigue continue to make a potential Caribbean paradise a hell on earth

10. Iraq

The worst of both worlds – sanctions have ravaged the economy and Saddam’s boot is as heavy as ever

Have you ever been there or are you just making comments based on what you have seen from Slumdog Millionaire. LOL
I have been there 6 times and I assure you that it is safe.
Only the south is poor, whereas the capital city (New Delhi) is actually home to many rich people.
In addition, India is a democratic nation (and not one of those democratic nations that call themselves a democracy, but is really autocratic).

LASTLY. Why is everyone making a big deal about this person’s blog post? It’s his/her opinion! WHO CARES.

I agree poverty is a curse..
I traveled to India in 2009 and shocked when I saw so many beggars on streets. It was really hard to eat at restaurants or even to travel. Beggars and poor people everywhere asking for dollars and money, even one beggar girl grab my wife with her skirt and asking for 1 dollar, luckily near by a police man shouted at her and then she run away.
My image towards India was shuttered. People visiting to see Taj Mehal better stick to discovery channel. Indian government needs some serious efforts to make it a good tourist place.

The U.S. Is the bad country? Really? Explain how then, go ahead. Explain why the U.S. should be placed there, how “THE REAL TERRORISTS ARE THERE RAWR!”, go ahead.

I think its more dangerous to visit the seas around somalia than the actually country. It may not have a government but it has some welcoming and civilised people. Central somalia is very beatiful and has many italian buildings. Ethiopia is reallly bad :| .

Egypt is very beautiful but has so many perverted/ racist people, which is likely to ruin your holiday. lol.

Isnt colombia the worlds most dangerous country? ‘

Take it from someone who worked in Thailand for 9 years.

Thailand should be on your list for its crimes against tourists. Drugs are out of control in Thailand and fuelling crime against tourists at an alarming rate. Internet information is often sugar coated by those peddling accommodation and services to the tourist industry.
The value of life is low in Thailand and this should always be on your mind when travelling this country of opportunist thieves and scammers hiding behind the beautiful Thai smile.

hey MIco, what makes you think Turkey would be a bad place to visit? You are just an ignorant person who acts with prejudice.

Those who think India should be included are nuts. India is a amazing place to visit. there are numerous places to visit in India which will take your breath away. Apart from natural beauty India has a rich culture and awesome food. And it’s pretty safe unless you are dumb enough to ignore common safety rules.

Mr. Marbles, your list needs refining. Yes, you have some obvious ones out there, but you fail to go into depth about them. Have you even visited these places? Why is Thailand on this list and not China? Thialand got hit by a tsunami, and it didn’t kill hundreds, it killed tens of thousands. On the list soley for an occurace that happens once every hundred years is a thin reason for it being there. “Maxion” had some good points about Thailand being a haven of opportunists when it comes to scamming foreigners/tourists, but if you have a decent head on your shoulders that shouldn’t be a problem. (Being a foreigner is the same in every country, just be smart). Thailand was one of the best travel experiences I\’ve ever had.

F*ck off you added Thailand on the list!
It is the one of the most BEAUTIFUL country in the world!!!
Tsunami is the old story we put it behind but that doesn’t mean we forget about those who lost their lifes and families…R.I.P.

Thanks Roland…Thailand is good init!

To the extent i think yes Pakistan is a dangerous country to visit, not because it is miserably being under-effect of Taliban, but because of the living standards, poor economy. I am a Pakistani but i have been to Russia and China. Since i am a Pakistani by nationality, therefore i can easily see the reason Indians are against Pakistan. I think Pakistan should be in the list only because it doesn’t ensure you safety and proper health standards. that’s it!

I don’t live in Pakistan anymore but i do worry about my parents, i have been to Russia, UAE and now i am living in China, Beijing. Russia is scary just like Pakistan, China on the whole doesnt give you good life standards too but like Beijing, Shanghai are way too cool to live in. you are safe, you have rights. Now, if you see India, from politics to health standard its inadequate, HIV, Terrorism rate, Pollution, therefore it must be enlisted. But India is rich in culture, history same like for Pakistan. i would like to pay a visit to India,if only it was safer. still i am not against Indians, i respect their country and history

Furthermore,its totally pointless to go wild against other countries just to show you hate them. People who are against USA are more likely Muslims but Muslims should see if you see its safe to visit. You should go and see rich culture of anywhere in China, UAE, or Africa somewhere, sow the seeds of love and cultivate respect and dignity.

and at-least see the topic which says “top worst countries TO VISIT”, its about tourism, saftey, present health situation, terrorism not about a country which is politically corrupt, sinking economy or money-laundry”. Come’on, be mature when you write….

I cant figure out one thing;

If an 40 year old Arab marries a 16 old girl; its propagated widely on a media.

On the other hand;

If a 60 year old Man in WEST rapes a small girl who have still not reached her puberty yet, theres only a ticker tape, not even a headline.

Why this BIASING!

I have travelled and lived/worked/volunteered in many countries for months since I was 17 Iam now 23 years old and only stopped travelling around a year ago, from countries in Europe to Africa,Middle East, The Americas and Asia, I\’m from Australia and what my travels have shown me is that every country I have visited in Europe,Africa,Middle East,North America and South America and Asia is utterly uncivilized barbarism, more so in the Americas then anywhere else in my experience, though all these regions are equally uncivilised. Australia and New Zealand is the only civilised countries in the world we are the light and My country of Australia is surrounded
by the brute,barbaric,uncivilised nations/countries of Europe,Africa,Middle East,North America and South America and Asia, why is it you are all uncivilised and enjoy barbaric ideas?

I think alot of people making comments here are weird, judging a country on the basis of what they hear on the news. may be you guys need to leave your homes and travel the world to see for yourself. I’ve been to pakistan and thailand in the past 2 months and i have to say they are beautiful countries. who evere made the comment people are dying every day, mate seriously stop googling stuff and watching the news and go visit for yourself. No violence, no death and i shall be definetly going again. You can expect an Indian or an American to bad mouth other countries, as they often dont seem to see the problems in their own.

This is one of the most interesting blogs I’ve ever seen. My God! So much hatred. No wonder the entire world is fighting against each other. I don’t believe that the countries are bad. It is us miserable humans that give them bad names and make them inhospitable.

I’m an Indian. I agree that some of the comments are correct but most were ignorant. Yes, we are not as developed as the USA or the UK but we are good people. All of us don’t smell bad… :)

As for Pakistan, it is true that India and Pakistan are perpetual enemies but I’ve heard from so many Indians about the wonderful hospitality that they received in that country. It’s so sad that Pakistan is fighting such a huge battle to save its own citizens and not being able to do much.

I believe every country has it’s positives and negatives. Why are most people talking about negatives? This shows how stupid and miserable we humans are.

I wish everyone all the best. Be proud of the country you belong to. So am I. Amen…

hello everyone its good to see this discussion as it could be hellp for many but we cant use the word WORST instead NOT GOOD would be better..
I have seen people abusing countries and praising their own countries just for the sake they geting abused.
I am a new zealander kiwi and i have travelled to about 29 countries of the world including Canada US UK Ireland Russia China Japan India Mexico Turkey Sudan Zimbabwe and about all the countries in Europe.
According to the discussion and my view India is not at all a bad choice to visit coz it was one of my amazing visits and made me travel for like 3 more times. it is too densely packed country but the culture traditions languages diversity is marvellous. Obvious you will find beggars in the country with 2nd highest populaton but they are not killing you or hurting you but just ask for help if you cn give othervise just walk away….

You are actually scared in US though i could see the amazing scrappers but wanted to rush to hotel before sunset

Canada is a nice place but chill is a problm

Sudan zimbabwe are okay to visit but not really a amusing nd safe place with family and friends

Europe is not bad but could find racism between people and languages …only good if you knoe EU languages

Dont wanna offend anyone

Cheers!

I have done research before trvel to Asia.
Following are the worst as per 2010.

High Disease rate, race riotes, land mines, missing tourists (mostly kidnap) and weather are the major factors.

Worst: Sri Lanka
next : Bangladesh, Bhutan
then : Pakistan

Super nice: Singapore
nest : Malasia
then : India (tourist destinations)

Sri Lanka and Bhutan because of the government is unsupportive to the foreign tourist, it is highly valunarable to get the abduction and missing news to public.

For making a comment

May 14th, 2010

Sorry to see so much hatred here. I would say most of the comments were not sincere.

Speaking about India, it is a vast country(7th largest) and 2nd highest population. So I agree that at least at some places cleanliness is not up to the mark. And recent pak – backed terrorist groups attacks have given a insecure feeling to the foreigners. Putting aside these two black marks that can be rectified in near future, India is a great place to visit.

The deep cultural traditions, rich biodiversity, diverse places, interesting art forms, great monuments, etc are some of the numerous components of tourism in India. Do you know that India is top among health tourism destinations?

Hey guys I think you all are being byast toward India. I’ll have you know that India is actually competing with AMERICA AND CHINA. Also the poverty rate has gone down by 30% in the last 20 years It is at 10.1%. America’s poverty rate is 23.6% and growing rapidly at 9 % a year. Also these so called riots around the country do not exist maybe in your idiot brains but not in reality, In fact India is very stable even though its surrounded by some of The most currupt countries in the world. Also you said India is the the country with the most HIV rates. Once again your wrong, That is actually Uganda and America. Second of all you think India is poor because of its cleanliness. You all have to understand the British left India in a crisis after 1947. All of their wealth was gone. Before the British invaded India was the richest country in the world. Then after nearly 98% of the country was in poverty and the cleanliness went down due to the bloodshed then India split with Pakistan even more bloodshed then India had a war with China even more bloodshed then three more wars with Pakistan more bloodshed then another border dispute with China more blood shed and now its 1980. As you can see India is a freaakin BRIC in 30 years. It developed that fast. Thats why China and Pakistan suck. Here is my revised list.
Worst countries

1. China
2. Pakistan
3. Afghanistan
4. Iraq
5. Kazakhstan
6. Britain
7. America
8. Somalia
9. Yemen
10. Sudan

Lets now observe the problem rather just showing hatred views, we all are some how belong to some region, religion or caste and color not because of choice but by chance. lets assume raju or ashish reborn in pakistani muslim family and khadim or omar reborn in india hindu family or lets assume jack from america reborn in somlian family, now reshape your thoughts and change the frame of reference , what would be your views now.
well i think you all are right, their are some problematic countries due to security issues but please just for a while lets have some paradigm shift and reshape our list,
for worst neighbor or ally or ill planners

India is the worst neighbor (all borders are red hot zone)

America is the worst ally (always leave its allies in midway)

Pakistan is the most corrupt and selfish and unthankful (India gave its land to have separate place for living ,USA helped many times Pakistan o yes for cold war against russia and used pakistan but any how they helped many times, please dont get mad its just thought shifting brain storming.

Please i request to add more problem creating areas rather than just pointing the symptoms

I just came back from India and it’s the worst country out of over 50 that I have travelled to as a single female. I felt safe, but this is the hardest place to travel alone that I’ve ever been to. Hotel staff tried to invent bills for me to pay, Tuktuk driver were so demanding and hassling, that I ran down side streets to avoid them. It was so dry and dusty there were no pretty places to just sit and enjoy the scenery. Everyone wanted money from me.
Directions were minimum. ‘Don’t go there madam, come this way, see this shop! ‘ It’s only a hundred times more expensive that the little shop you were looking for. Only pickpockets that way.’ People sleeping between urinals on the streets. My taxi driver drove over a dog and didn’t flinch as it screamed. I blocked my ears, but he didn’t care, what’s one more dead dog in Delhi!

Paco

May 19th, 2010

@ kit dickson
look I know you hate India. You have to take into consideration that India has gone through several wars just to attain its FREEDOM. Rather you point out the negative aspects there. The same is pretty much in America. People ask for way to much money. India actually asked for less than America. In AMERICA YOU WOULD BE FORCED TO GIVE AN EXTRA 100 DOLLARS WHEREAS IN INDIA IT ABOUT A HUNDRED RUPEES WHICH IS ABOUT 2 DOLLARS IS IT THAT MUCH DO YOU REALLY HAVE THAT LITTLE MONEY. Also he probably ran over that dog on accident. Do you know how much that happens in the U.S.A A lot more than India and China’s worse. Also directions are not minimum. First of all I bet you were just standing right next to the gateway of India and asked, ” Where is it.” India is better than China is my conclusion.

To PINOY BOI:
I don’tunderstand why you have to criticize other countires when your country have sooo much problems as it is.. I’ve went to Phillipines and personally I think its dirty. You cannot run from prostitutes. In fact, I find many prostitutes from Thailand,Singapore, Malaysia and other asian countries to have come from Phillipines. But tho having said that, Phils also has its good side. I love the food and culture. So, please stop pointing fingers at other people’s countries. Its rude!
I’ve been to Spain, Norway, Denmark, Us, Asian countries like Phillipines, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. I find Malaysia very humble and rich with culture. What you find in many other countires can be found in Malaysia. I’ll surely visit again..Oh yeah, and Singapore as well. I hear they don’t have much difference but still, what have i got to lose! :D

India on the other hand is less corrupt than most countries in the world including pakistan. ill have you know that pakistanhas much more poverty and is less clean than india. Also India has these riots because the Pakistanis are the ones causing them they are the riots. Also India has way more tourist spots that pakistan amd pakistan has way more riots than india. India is the way to go.

I think China is the best Because

China is seen variously as an ancient civilization extending over a large area in East Asia, a nation and/or a multinational entity.

In 1949, when major combat ended in the Chinese Civil War, two political entities emerged having the term “China” in their names:

The People’s Republic of China (PRC), established in 1949, commonly known as China, has control over mainland China and the largely self-governing territories of Hong Kong (since 1997) and Macau (since 1999).
The Republic of China (ROC) established in 1912 on mainland China, now commonly known as Taiwan, has control over the islands of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen, and Matsu.
China is one of the world’s oldest civilizations and is regarded as the oldest continuous civilization.[1][2] In 1100, China had the most advanced economy in the world. It subsequently missed the industrial revolution and began to decline. [3] In the 19th and 20th century, imperialism, wars and civil wars damaged the country and its economy. In the 1950s, change to economic policies in the Republic of China (Taiwan) transformed the island into a technology-oriented industrialized developed economy. It became known as one of the Four Asian Tigers along with Hong Kong, South Korea and Singapore. In mainland China, in the 1970s, reforms known as the Four Modernizations modernized the agriculture, industry, technology and defense, eventually making the PRC one of the major powers.[4][5][6][7][8] China is viewed as the source of many major inventions.[9] It has also one of the world’s oldest written language systems.

Historically, China’s cultural sphere has extended across East Asia as a whole, with Chinese religion, customs, and writing systems being adopted to varying degrees by neighbors such as Japan, Korea and Vietnam. The first evidence of human presence in the region was found at the Zhoukoudian cave. It is one of the earliest known specimens of Homo erectus, now commonly known as the Peking Man, estimated to have lived from 300,000 to 780,000 years ago.[10][11][12]

Etymology
Main article: Names of China

The traditional (top) and simplified (bottom) characters for “China” in Chinese. The first character means “middle” or “center”, and the second character means “country”.English names
The word “China”[nb 1] is derived from Cin (چین), a Persian name for China popularized in Europe by Marco Polo.[13][14] In early usage, “china” as a term for porcelain was spelled differently than the name of the country, the two words being derived from separate Persian words.[15] Both these words are derived from the Sanskrit word Cīna (चीन),[15] used as a name for China as early as AD 150.[16] The origin of this word is the subject of several conflicting scholarly theories.[17] The traditional theory, proposed in the 17th century by Martin Martini, is that the word is derived from “Qin” (秦)(778 BC – 207 BC), the westernmost of the Chinese kingdoms during the Zhou dynasty, or from the succeeding Qin dynasty (221 – 206 BC).[18] In the Hindu scriptures Mahābhārata (5th century BC )[19][20] and Laws of Manu (2nd century BC), the word Cīna is used to refer to a country of “yellow-colored” barbarians located in the Tibeto-Burman borderlands east of India.[21]

Chinese names
The official name of China changed with each dynasty. The common name is Zhōngguó (simplified Chinese: 中国; traditional Chinese: 中國, Mandarin pronunciation: [t͡ʂʊŋ˥˥ku̯ɔ˧˥]). This translates traditionally as “Middle Kingdom,” or as “central country.”

The name Zhōngguó first appeared in the Classic of History (6th century BC), and was used to refer to the late Zhou Dynasty, as they believed that they were the “center of civilization,”[nb 2] while peoples in the four cardinals were called Eastern Yi, Southern Man, Western Rong and Northern Di respectively. Some texts imply that “Zhōngguó” was originally meant to refer to the capital of the sovereign, to differ from the capital of his vassals.[nb 3] The use of “Zhōngguó” implied a claim of political legitimacy, and “Zhōngguó” was often used by states who saw themselves as the sole legitimate successor to previous Chinese dynasties; for example, in the era of the Southern Song Dynasty, both the Jin Dynasty and the Southern Song state claimed to be “Zhōngguó.”[nb 4]

Zhōngguó came to official use as an abbreviation for the Republic of China (Zhonghua Minguo) after the government’s establishment in 1912. Since the People’s Republic of China, established in 1949, now controls the great majority of the area encompassed within the traditional concept of “China”, the People’s Republic is the political unit most commonly identified with the abbreviated name Zhōngguó, with the Republic of China nowadays known commonly as “Taiwan”.[nb 5]

Ancient China was one of the earliest centers of human civilization. Chinese civilization was also one of the few to invent writing,[9] the others being Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley civilization, the Maya and other Mesoamerican civilizations, the Minoan civilization of ancient Greece, and Ancient Egypt.[22]

Prehistory
Archaeological evidence suggests that the earliest hominids in China date from 250,000 to 2.24 million years ago.[23][24] A cave in Zhoukoudian (near present-day Beijing) has fossils dated at somewhere between 300,000 to 780,000 years.[25][26][27] The fossils are of Peking Man, an example of Homo erectus who used fire.

The earliest evidence of a fully modern human in China comes from Liujiang County, Guangxi, where a cranium has been found and dated at approximately 67,000 years old. Although much controversy persists over the dating of the Liujiang remains,[28][29] a partial skeleton from Minatogawa in Okinawa, Japan has been dated to 16,600 to 18,250 years old, so modern humans probably reached China before that time.[citation needed]

Jade deer ornament made during the first historic Chinese dynasty, the Shang, 17th to 11th Century BC.Chinese tradition names the first dynasty Xia, but it was considered mythical until scientific excavations found early bronze-age sites at Erlitou in Henan Province in 1959.[30] Archaeologists have since uncovered urban sites, bronze implements, and tombs in locations cited as Xia’s in ancient historical texts, but it is impossible to verify that these remains are of the Xia without written records from the period.

Some of the thousands of life-size Terracotta Warriors of the Qin Dynasty, ca. 210 BC.The first Chinese dynasty that left historical records, the loosely feudal Shang (Yin), settled along the Yellow River in eastern China from the 17th to the 11th century BC. The Oracle bone script of the Shang Dynasty represent the oldest forms of Chinese writing found and the direct ancestor of modern Chinese characters used throughout East Asia. The Shang were invaded from the west by the Zhou, who ruled from the 12th to the 5th century BC, until their centralized authority was slowly eroded by feudal warlords. Many independent states eventually emerged out of the weakened Zhou state, and continually waged war with each other in the Spring and Autumn period, only occasionally deferring to the Zhou king. By the time of the Warring States period, there were seven powerful sovereign states, each with its own king, ministry and army.

The first unified Chinese state was established by Qin Shi Huang of the Qin state in 221 BC, who proclaimed himself as the “First Emperor” and created many reforms in the Empire, notably the forced standardization of the Chinese language and measurements. The Qin Dynasty lasted only fifteen years, as its harsh legalist and authoritarian policies soon led to widespread rebellion.

The subsequent Han Dynasty ruled China between 206 BC and 220 AD, and created a lasting Han cultural identity among its populace that extends to the present day. The Han Dynasty expanded the empire’s territory considerably with military campaigns reaching Korea, Vietnam, Mongolia and Central Asia, and also helped establish the Silk Road in Central Asia.

After Han’s collapse, another period of disunion followed, including the highly chivalric period of the Three Kingdoms. Independent Chinese states of this period such as Wu opened diplomatic relations with Japan, introducing the Chinese writing system there. In 580 AD, China was reunited under the Sui. However, the Sui Dynasty was short-lived after a failure in the Goguryeo-Sui Wars (598–614) weakened it.

10th–11th century Longquan celadon porcelain pieces from Zhejiang province, during the Song Dynasty.Under the succeeding Tang and Song dynasties, Chinese technology and culture reached its zenith. The Tang Empire was at its height of power until the middle of the 8th century, when the An Shi Rebellion destroyed the prosperity of the empire. The Song dynasty was the first government in world history to issue paper money and the first Chinese polity to establish a permanent standing navy. Between the 10th and 11th centuries, the population of China doubled in size. This growth came about through expanded rice cultivation in central and southern China, and the production of abundant food surpluses.

Within its borders, the Northern Song Dynasty had a population of some 100 million people. The Song Dynasty was a culturally rich period in for philosophy and the arts. Landscape art and portrait painting were brought to new levels of maturity and complexity after the Tang Dynasty, and social elites gathered to view art, share their own, and make trades of precious artworks. Philosophers such as Cheng Yi and Chu Hsi reinvigorated Confucianism with new commentary, infused Buddhist ideals, and emphasized a new organization of classic texts that brought about the core doctrine of Neo-Confucianism.

In 1271, the Mongol leader and fifth Khagan of the Mongol Empire Kublai Khan established the Yuan Dynasty, with the last remnant of the Song Dynasty falling to the Yuan in 1279. Before the Mongol invasion, Chinese dynasties reportedly had approximately 120 million inhabitants; after the conquest was completed in 1279, the 1300 census reported roughly 60 million people.[31] A peasant named Zhu Yuanzhang overthrew the Mongols in 1368 and founded the Ming Dynasty.[32] Ming Dynasty thinkers such as Wang Yangming would further critique and expand Neo-Confucianism with ideas of individualism and innate morality that would have tremendous impact on later Japanese thought. Chosun Korea also became a nominal vassal state of Ming China and adopted much of its Neo-Confucian bureaucratic structure.

Under the Ming Dynasty, China had another golden age, with one of the strongest navies in the world, a rich and prosperous economy and a flourishing of the arts and culture. It was during this period that Zheng He led explorations throughout the world, possibly reaching America. During the early Ming Dynasty China’s capital was moved from Nanjing to Beijing. In 1644 Beijing was sacked by a coalition of rebel forces led by Li Zicheng, a minor Ming official turned leader of the peasant revolt. The last Ming Emperor Chongzhen committed suicide when the city fell. The Manchu Qing Dynasty then allied with Ming Dynasty general Wu Sangui and overthrew Li’s short-lived Shun Dynasty, and subsequently seized control of Beijing, which became the new capital of the Qing dynasty.

In the 19th century the Qing Dynasty adopted a defensive posture towards European imperialism, even though it engaged in imperialistic expansion into Central Asia. At this time China awoke to the significance of the rest of the world, the West in particular. As China opened up to foreign trade and missionary activity, opium produced by British India was forced onto Qing China. Two Opium Wars with Britain weakened the Emperor’s control. European imperialism proved to be disastrous for China:

Clipper ship Celestial EmpireThe Arrow War (1856–1860) [2nd Opium War] saw another disastrous defeat for China. The subsequent passing of the humiliating Treaty of Tianjin in 1856 and the Beijing Conventions of 1860 opened up more of the country to foreign penetrations and more ports for their vessels. Hong Kong was ceded over to the British. Thus, the “unequal treaties system” was established. Heavy indemnities had to be paid by China, and more territory and control were taken over by the foreigners.[33]

The weakening of the Qing regime, and the apparent humiliation of the unequal treaties in the eyes of the Chinese people had several consequences. One consequence was the Taiping Civil War, which lasted from 1851 to 1862. It was led by Hong Xiuquan, who was partly influenced by an idiosyncratic interpretation of Christianity. Hong believed himself to be the son of God and the younger brother of Jesus. Although the Qing forces were eventually victorious, the civil war was one of the bloodiest in human history, costing at least 20 million lives (more than the total number of fatalities in the First World War), with some estimates of up to two hundred million. Other costly rebellions followed the Taiping Rebellion, such as the Punti-Hakka Clan Wars (1855–67), Nien Rebellion (1851–1868), Muslim Rebellion (1862–77), Panthay Rebellion (1856–1873) and the Miao Rebellion (1854–73).[34][35]

These rebellions resulted in an estimated loss of several million lives each and led to disastrous results for the economy and the countryside.[36][37][38] The flow of British opium hastened the empire’s decline. In the 19th century, the age of colonialism was at its height and the great Chinese Diaspora began. About 35 million overseas Chinese live in Southeast Asia today.[39] The famine in 1876–79 claimed between 9 and 13 million lives in northern China.[40] From 108 BC to 1911 AD, China experienced 1,828 famines,[41] or one per year, somewhere in the empire.[42]

While China was wracked by continuous war, Meiji Japan succeeded in rapidly modernizing its military and set its sights on Korea and Manchuria. At the request of the Korean emperor, the Chinese government sent troops to aid in suppressing the Tonghak Rebellion in 1894. However, Japan also sent troops to Korea, leading to the First Sino-Japanese War, which resulted in Qing China’s loss of influence in the Korean Peninsula as well as the cession of Taiwan to Japan.

Following this series of defeats, a reform plan for the empire to become a modern Meiji-style constitutional monarchy was drafted by the Emperor Guangxu in 1898, but was opposed and stopped by the Empress Dowager Cixi, who placed Emperor Guangxu under house arrest in a coup d’état. Further destruction followed the ill-fated 1900 Boxer Rebellion against westerners in Beijing.

By the early 20th century, mass civil disorder had begun, and calls for reform and revolution were heard across the country. The 38-year-old Emperor Guangxu died under house arrest on 14 November 1908, suspiciously just a day before Cixi’s own death. With the throne empty, he was succeeded by Cixi’s handpicked heir, his two year old nephew Puyi, who became the Xuantong Emperor. Guangxu’s consort, who became the Empress Dowager Longyu. In another coup de’tat, Yuan ShiKai overthrew the last Qing emperor, and forced empress Dowager Longyu to sign the abdication decree as regent in 1912, ending two thousand years of imperial rule in China. She died, childless, in 1913.

Republic of China (1912–49)

On 1 January 1912, the Republic of China was established, heralding the end of the Qing Dynasty. Sun Yat-sen of the Kuomintang (the KMT or Nationalist Party) was proclaimed provisional president of the republic. However, the presidency was later given to Yuan Shikai, a former Qing general, who had ensured the defection of the entire Beiyang Army from the Qing Empire to the revolution. In 1915, Yuan proclaimed himself Emperor of China but was forced to abdicate and return the state to a republic when he realized it was an unpopular move, not only with the population but also with his own Beiyang Army and its commanders.

After Yuan Shikai’s death in 1916, China was politically fragmented, with an internationally recognized but virtually powerless national government seated in Peking (Beijing). Warlords in various regions exercised actual control over their respective territories. In the late 1920s, the Kuomintang, under Chiang Kai-shek, was able to reunify the country under its own control, moving the nation’s capital to Nanking (Nanjing) and implementing “political tutelage”, an intermediate stage of political development outlined in Sun Yat-sen’s program for transforming China into a modern, democratic state. Effectively, political tutelage meant one-party rule by the Kuomintang.

The Sino-Japanese War of 1937–1945 (part of World War II) forced an uneasy alliance between the Nationalists and the Communists as well as causing around 20 million Chinese civilian deaths.[43] With the surrender of Japan in 1945, China emerged victorious but financially drained. The continued distrust between the Nationalists and the Communists led to the resumption of the Chinese Civil War. In 1947, constitutional rule was established, but because of the ongoing Civil War many provisions of the ROC constitution were never implemented in mainland China.

After its victory in the Chinese Civil War, the Communist Party of China (CCP) led by Mao Zedong gained control of most of Mainland China. On 1 October 1949, they established the People’s Republic of China as a Socialist State headed by a “Democratic Dictatorship” with the CCP as the only legal political party, thus, laying claim as the successor state of the ROC. The central government of the Chinese Nationalist Party led by Chiang Kai-shek retreated to the island of Taiwan that it had occupied at the end of World War II, and moved the ROC government there. Major armed hostilities ceased in 1950 but no peace treaty has been signed. An estimated 36 million died during the Great Chinese Famine of 1958–61.[44][45]

Beginning in the late 1970s, the Republic of China began the implementation of full, multi-party, representative democracy in the territories still under its control (Taiwan, and a number of smaller islands including Quemoy and Matsu). Today, the ROC has active political participation by all sectors of society. The main cleavage in ROC politics is the issue of eventual political unification with the Chinese mainland vs. formal independence of Taiwan.

After the Chinese Civil War, mainland China underwent a series of disruptive socioeconomic movements starting in the late 1950s with the Great Leap Forward and continuing in the 1960s with the Cultural Revolution that left much of its education system and economy in shambles. With the death of its first generation Communist Party leaders such as Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai, the PRC began implementing a series of political and economic reforms advocated by Deng Xiaoping that eventually formed the foundation for mainland China’s rapid economic development starting in the 1990s.

Post-1978 reforms in mainland China have led to some relaxation of control over many areas of society. However, the PRC government still has almost absolute control over politics, and it continually seeks to eradicate what it perceives as threats to the social, political and economic stability of the country. Examples include the fight against terrorism, jailing of political opponents and journalists, custody regulation of the press, regulation of religion, and suppression of independence/secessionist movements. In 1989, the student protests at Tiananmen Square were violently put to an end by the Chinese military after 15 days of martial law. In 1997, Hong Kong was ceded to the PRC by the United Kingdom, and in 1999, Macau was handed over by Portugal.

Since 1949, mainland China is administered by the People’s Republic of China—a one-party state under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party—while the island of Taiwan and surrounding islands are administered by the Republic of China—a democratic multi-party state. After the founding of the People’s Republic in 1949, both states claimed to be the sole legitimate ruler of all of China. After the Kuomintang retreat to Taiwan in 1949, the Republic of China had maintained official diplomatic relations with most states around the world, but by the 1970s, a shift had occurred in international diplomatic circles and the People’s Republic of China gained the upper hand in international diplomatic relations and recognition count.

In 1971, under UN resolution 2758, the representatives of Chiang Kai-shek to the United Nations were expelled from the intergovernmental organization. With the expulsion of the representatives, and effectively the Republic of China, the representatives of the People’s Republic of China were invited to assume China’s seat on the UN Security Council, the UN General Assembly and other United Nations councils and agencies. Later attempts by the Republic of China to rejoin the UN have either been blocked by the People’s Republic of China, which has veto power on the UN Security Council, or rejected by the United Nations Secretariat or a United Nations General Assembly committee responsible for the General Assembly’s agenda.[46]

Since the relocation of its capital to Taiwan, the Republic of China has not formally renounced its claim to authority over all of China, nor has it changed its official maps, which include the mainland and Mongolia. Following the introduction of full democracy, and the electoral victory of the DPP’s Chen Shui-bian in the presidential elections, the ROC had adopted a policy of separating the state’s identity from “China”, while moving towards identifying the state as “Taiwan”.

However, the ROC has not made any formal moves to change the name, flag, or national anthem of the state to reflect a Taiwanese identity due to the lack of consensus within Taiwan, pressure from the United States and the fear of invasion or military action from the People’s Republic of China against the island. The Republic of China during the DPP years did not actively pursue its claims on mainland China or Mongolia. However, after having been elected as president, KMT’s Ma Ying-jeou asserted that, constitutionally, mainland China is part of the Republic of China.[47] The People’s Republic of China claims to have succeeded the Republic of China as the sole legitimate governing authority of all of China, which, from the official viewpoint of the People’s Republic of China, includes the island of Taiwan.

Over the last 50 years, both the Republic of China and the People’s Republic of China have used diplomatic and economic means to compete for recognition in the international arena. Because most international, intergovernmental organizations observe the One-China policy of the People’s Republic of China, the PRC has been able to pressure organizations, such as the World Health Organization and the International Olympic Committee, to refuse to officially recognize the Republic of China. Due to the One-China policy, states around the world are pressured to refuse, or to cut off diplomatic relations with the Republic of China. As a result, 23 U.N. member states currently maintain official diplomatic relations with the Republic of China, while the vast majority of U.N. member states maintain official diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China.

Historical political divisions
Main article: History of the political divisions of China

Territories occupied by different dynasties as well as modern political states throughout the history of China.Top-level political divisions of China have altered as administrations changed. Top levels included circuits and provinces. Below that, there have been prefectures, subprefectures, departments, commanderies, districts, and counties. Recent divisions also include prefecture-level cities, county-level cities, towns and townships.

Most Chinese dynasties were based in the historical heartlands of China, known as China proper. Various dynasties also expanded into peripheral territories like Inner Mongolia, Manchuria, Xinjiang, and Tibet. The Manchu-established Qing Dynasty and its successors, the ROC and the PRC, incorporated these territories into the Chinese empire.

Principal rivers flow from west to east, including the Yangtze (central), the Huang He (Yellow river, north-central), and the Amur (northeast), and sometimes toward the south (including the Pearl River, Mekong River, and Brahmaputra), with most Chinese rivers emptying into the Pacific Ocean.

In the east, along the shores of the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea there are extensive and densely populated alluvial plains. On the edges of the Inner Mongolian plateau in the north, grasslands can be seen. Southern China is dominated by hills and low mountain ranges. In the central-east are the deltas of China’s two major rivers, the Huang He and Yangtze River. Most of China’s arable lands lie along these rivers, and they were the centers of China’s major ancient civilizations. Other major rivers include the Pearl River, Mekong, Brahmaputra and Amur. Yunnan Province is considered a part of the Greater Mekong Subregion, which also includes Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.[48]

Main geographic features and regions of China.In the west, the north has a great alluvial plain, and the south has a vast calcareous tableland traversed by hill ranges of moderate elevation, and the Himalayas, containing Earth’s highest point, Mount Everest. The northwest also has high plateaus with more arid desert landscapes such as the Takla-Makan and the Gobi Desert, which has been expanding. During many dynasties, the southwestern border of China has been the high mountains and deep valleys of Yunnan, which separate modern China from Burma, Laos and Vietnam.

The Paleozoic formations of China, excepting only the upper part of the Carboniferous system, are marine, while the Mesozoic and Tertiary deposits are estuarine and freshwater, or else of terrestrial origin. Groups of volcanic cones occur in the Great Plain of north China. In the Liaodong and Shandong Peninsulas, there are basaltic plateaus.

The climate of China varies greatly. The northern zone (containing Beijing) has summer daytime temperatures of more than 30 degrees Celsius and winters of Arctic severity. The central zone (containing Shanghai) has a temperate continental climate with very hot summers and cold winters. The southern zone (containing Guangzhou) has a subtropical climate with very hot summers and mild winters.

Due to a prolonged drought and poor agricultural practices, dust storms have become usual in the spring in China.[49] Dust has blown to southern Mainland China and Taiwan, and has reached the West Coast of the United States. Water, erosion, and pollution control have become important issues in China’s relations with other countries.

China’s traditional values were derived from various versions of Confucianism. A number of more authoritarian strains of thought have also been influential, such as Legalism.

There was often conflict between the philosophies, e.g. the Song Dynasty Neo-Confucians believed Legalism departed from the original spirit of Confucianism. Examinations and a culture of merit remain greatly valued in China today. In recent years, a number of New Confucians (not to be confused with Neo-Confucianism) have advocated that democratic ideals and human rights are quite compatible with traditional Confucian “Asian values”.[50]

With the rise of European economic and military power beginning in the mid-19th century, non-Chinese systems of social and political organization gained adherents in China. Some of these would-be reformers totally rejected China’s cultural legacy, while others sought to combine the strengths of Chinese and European cultures. In essence, the history of 20th-century China is one of experimentation with new systems of social, political, and economic organization that would allow for the reintegration of the nation in the wake of dynastic collapse.

Chinese calligraphy by Mi Fu, Song Dynasty, ca. 1100 CE
A bamboo book copy of Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, a 20th century reprint of a Qianlong imperial edition.Chinese characters have had many variants and styles throughout Chinese history. Tens of thousands of ancient written documents are still extant, from oracle bones to Qing edicts. This literary emphasis affected the general perception of cultural refinement in China, e.g. the view that calligraphy was a higher art form than painting or drama. Manuscripts of the Classics and religious texts (mainly Confucian, Taoist, and Buddhist) were handwritten by ink brush.

Calligraphy later became commercialized, and works by famous artists became prized possessions. Chinese literature has a long past; the earliest classic work in Chinese, the I Ching or “Book of Changes” dates to around 1000 BC. A flourishing of philosophy during the Warring States Period produced such noteworthy works as Confucius’s Analects and Laozi’s Tao Te Ching. (See also: the Chinese classics.) Dynastic histories were often written, beginning with Sima Qian’s seminal Records of the Historian, which was written from 109 BC to 91 BC.

The Tang Dynasty witnessed a poetic flowering, while the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature were written during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Printmaking in the form of movable type was developed during the Song Dynasty. Academies of scholars sponsored by the empire were formed to comment on the classics in both printed and handwritten form. Royalty frequently participated in these discussions as well.

The Song Dynasty was also a period of great scientific literature, and saw the creation of works such as Su Song’s Xin Yixiang Fayao and Shen Kuo’s Dream Pool Essays. There were also enormous works of historiography and large encyclopedias, such as Sima Guang’s Zizhi Tongjian of 1084 AD or the Four Great Books of Song fully compiled and edited by the 11th century.

For centuries, religious and social advancement in China could be achieved through high performance on the imperial examinations. This led to the creation of a meritocracy, although success was available only to males who could afford test preparation. Imperial examinations required applicants to write essays and demonstrate mastery of the Confucian classics. Those who passed the highest level of the exam became elite scholar-officials known as jinshi, a highly esteemed socio-economic position.

Chinese philosophers, writers and poets were highly respected and played key roles in preserving and promoting the culture of the empire. Some classical scholars, however, were noted for their daring depictions of the lives of the common people, often to the displeasure of authorities.The Chinese invented numerous musical instruments, such as the zheng (zither with movable bridges), qin (bridgeless zither), sheng (free reed mouth organ), and xiao (vertical flute) and adopted and developed others such the erhu (alto fiddle or bowed lute) and pipa (pear-shaped plucked lute), many of which later spread throughout East Asia and Southeast Asia, particularly to Japan, Korea, and Vietnam.

Demography
Main articles: Demographics of the People’s Republic of China, Ethnic groups in Chinese history, and Ethnic minorities in China

Ethnolinguistic map of the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of ChinaHundreds of ethnic groups have existed in China throughout its history. The largest ethnic group in China by far is the Han. This group, however, is internally diverse and can be further divided into smaller ethnic groups that share similar traits.

Over the last three millennia, many previously distinct ethnic groups in China have been Sinicized into a Han identity, which over time dramatically expanded the size of the Han population. However, these assimilations were usually incomplete, and vestiges of indigenous language and culture still often remain in various regions of China. Because of this, many within the Han identity have maintained distinct linguistic and cultural traditions while still identifying as Han.

Several ethnicities have also dramatically shaped Han culture, e.g. the Manchurian clothing called the qipao became the new “Chinese” fashion after the 17th century, replacing earlier Han styles of clothing such as the Hanfu. The modern term Chinese nation (Zhonghua Minzu) is now used to describe a notion of a Chinese nationality that transcends ethnic divisions.

Languages
Main article: Languages of China
Most languages in China belong to the Sino-Tibetan language family, spoken by 29 ethnicities. There are also several major linguistic groups within the Chinese language itself. The most spoken varieties are Mandarin (spoken by over 70% of the population), Wu, Yue (Cantonese), Min, Xiang, Gan, and Hakka. Non-Sinitic languages spoken widely by ethnic minorities include Zhuang (Thai), Mongolian, Tibetan, Uyghur (Turkic), Hmong and Korean.[51]

Classical Chinese was the written standard in China for thousands of years, and allowed for written communication between speakers of various unintelligible languages and dialects in China. Vernacular Chinese or baihua is the written standard based on the Mandarin dialect first popularized in Ming dynasty novels, and was adopted (with significant modifications) during the early 20th century as the national vernacular. Classical Chinese is still part of the high school curriculum and is thus intelligible to some degree to many Chinese.

Religion
Main article: Religion in China

Shang Dynasty bronze script character for tian (天), “Sky” or “Heaven.”The “official” orthodox faith system held by most dynasties of China since at least the Shang Dynasty (1766 BC) until the overthrow of the last dynasty (1911 AD) centered on the worship of Shangdi (”Supreme God”) or “Heaven” as an omnipotent force.[52] This faith system pre-dated the development of Confucianism and Taoism and the introduction of Buddhism and Christianity.

It has features of monotheism in that Heaven is seen as an omnipotent entity, endowed with personality but no corporeal form. From the writings of Confucius, we find that Confucius himself believed that Heaven cannot be deceived, Heaven guides people’s lives and maintains a personal relationship with them, and that Heaven gives tasks for people to fulfill to teach them righteousness (yi, 義).[52] However, this faith system was not truly monotheistic since other lesser gods and spirits, which varied with locality, were also worshiped along with Shangdi. Still, variants such as Mohism approached high monotheism, teaching that the function of lesser gods and ancestral spirits is merely to carry out the will of Shangdi, which included observing “universal love” (jian’ai, 兼爱) and shunning fatalism.

Worship of Shangdi and Heaven in ancient China includes the erection of shrines, the last and greatest being the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, and the offering of prayers. The ruler of China in every Chinese dynasty would perform annual sacrificial rituals to Heaven, usually by slaughtering a bull as sacrifice. Although its popularity gradually diminished after the advent of Taoism and Buddhism, among other religions, its concepts remained in use throughout the pre-modern period and have been incorporated in later religions in China, including terminology used in Chinese Christianity.

A monk in the Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai, China.Taoism is an indigenous religion of China and its beginnings are traditionally traced to the composition of Lao Zi’s Tao Te Ching (The Book of Tao and Its Virtues) or to seminal works by Zhang Daoling. The philosophy of Taoism is centered on “the way”; an understanding of which can be likened to recognizing the true nature of the universe. Taoism in its unorganized form is also considered a folk religion of China. More secular derivatives of Taoist ideas include Feng Shui, Sun Tzu’s Art of War, and acupuncture.

A Chinese Tang Dynasty (618–907) sculpture of the Buddha seated in meditation.Buddhism in China was first introduced from India and Central Asia during the Han dynasty and became very popular among Chinese of all walks of life, embraced particularly by commoners, and sponsored by emperors in certain dynasties. Mahayana (Dacheng, 大乘) is the predominant form of Buddhism practiced in China, where it was largely Sinicized and later exported to Korea, Japan and Vietnam. Some subsets of Mahayana popular in China include Pure Land (Amidism) and Zen. Buddhism is the largest organized faith in China and the country has the most Buddhist adherents in the world. Many Chinese, however, identify themselves as both Taoist and Buddhist at the same time.

Ancestor worship is a major religious theme shared among all Chinese religions. Traditional Chinese culture, Taoism, Confucianism, and Chinese Buddhism all value filial piety, or a love and respect for one’s parents and ancestors, as one of the most important virtues. Chinese people generally offer prayers and food for their ancestors, light incense and candles, and burn offerings of Joss paper. These activities are typically conducted at the site of ancestral graves or tombs, at an ancestral temple, or at a household shrine.

Christianity in China has developed since at least the 7th century AD with the introduction of the Assyrian Church of the East. Christianity began to make significant inroads in China after the 16th century through Jesuit and later Protestant missionaries. The Taiping Rebellion was influenced to some degree by Christian teachings, and the Boxer Rebellion was in part a reaction against Christianity in China.

Muslims came to China for trade, dominating the import/export industry during the Song Dynasty.[53][54] They became influential in government circles, including Zheng He, Lan Yu and Yeheidie’erding, was one of the people who helped to construct the Yuan Dynasty’s capital, Khanbaliq. Nanjing became an important center of Islamic study.[55] The Qing Dynasty waged war and genocide against Muslims in the Dungan revolt and Panthay rebellion.[56][57][58]

Judaism in China dates to as early as the 7th or 8th century CE. In the first half of the 20th century, many Jews arrived in Shanghai and Hong Kong during those cities’ periods of economic expansion, seeking refuge from the Holocaust. Shanghai was notable for its volume of Jewish refugees, as it was the only port in the world to accept them without an entry visa.

Sports and recreation

For sports in the Republic of China, see Sports in Taiwan.
Many historians believe that association football originated in China, where a form of the sport may have appeared around 1000 AD.[59] Other popular sports include martial arts, table tennis, badminton, and more recently, golf. Basketball is now popular among young people in urban centers.

There are also many traditional sports. Chinese dragon boat racing occurs during the Duan Wu festival. In Inner Mongolia, Mongolian-style wrestling and horse racing are popular. In Tibet, archery and equestrian sports are part of traditional festivals.[60]

Physical fitness is highly regarded. It is common for the elderly to practice Tai Chi Chuan and qigong in parks. Board games such as International Chess, Go (Weiqi), and Xiangqi (Chinese chess) are also common and have organized formal competitions. The capital city of the People’s Republic of China, Beijing, hosted the 2008 Olympic Games, a major international sporting event.

Science and technology

Among the technological accomplishments of ancient China were paper (not papyrus) and papermaking, woodblock printing and movable type printing, the early lodestone and needle compass, gunpowder, toilet paper, early seismological detectors, matches, pound locks, the double-action piston pump, blast furnace and cast iron, the iron plough, the multi-tube seed drill, the suspension bridge[61], natural gas as fuel, the differential gear for the South Pointing Chariot, the hydraulic-powered armillary sphere, the hydraulic-powered trip hammer, the mechanical chain drive, the mechanical belt drive, the raised-relief map, the propeller, the crossbow, the cannon, the rocket, the multistage rocket, etc.

Chinese astronomers were among the first to record observations of a supernova. The work of the astronomer Shen Kuo (1031–95) alone was most impressive, as he theorized that the sun and moon were spherical, corrected the position of the polestar with his improved sighting tube, discovered the concept of true north, wrote of planetary motions such as retrogradation, and compared the orbital paths of the planets to points on the shape of a rotating willow leaf. With evidence for them, he also postulated geological theories for the processes of land formation in geomorphology and climate change in paleoclimatology.

Other important astronomers included Gan De, Shi Shen, Zhang Heng, Yi Xing, Zhang Sixun, Su Song and Guo Shoujing. Chinese mathematics evolved independently of Greek mathematics and is therefore of great interest in the history of mathematics. The Chinese were also keen on documenting all of their technological achievements, such as in the Tiangong Kaiwu encyclopedia written by Song Yingxing (1587–1666).

I think China is the best Because

China is seen variously as an ancient civilization extending over a large area in East Asia, a nation and/or a multinational entity.

In 1949, when major combat ended in the Chinese Civil War, two political entities emerged having the term \”China\” in their names:

The People\’s Republic of China (PRC), established in 1949, commonly known as China, has control over mainland China and the largely self-governing territories of Hong Kong (since 1997) and Macau (since 1999).
The Republic of China (ROC) established in 1912 on mainland China, now commonly known as Taiwan, has control over the islands of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen, and Matsu.
China is one of the world\’s oldest civilizations and is regarded as the oldest continuous civilization.[1][2] In 1100, China had the most advanced economy in the world. It subsequently missed the industrial revolution and began to decline. [3] In the 19th and 20th century, imperialism, wars and civil wars damaged the country and its economy. In the 1950s, change to economic policies in the Republic of China (Taiwan) transformed the island into a technology-oriented industrialized developed economy. It became known as one of the Four Asian Tigers along with Hong Kong, South Korea and Singapore. In mainland China, in the 1970s, reforms known as the Four Modernizations modernized the agriculture, industry, technology and defense, eventually making the PRC one of the major powers.[4][5][6][7][8] China is viewed as the source of many major inventions.[9] It has also one of the world\’s oldest written language systems.

Historically, China\’s cultural sphere has extended across East Asia as a whole, with Chinese religion, customs, and writing systems being adopted to varying degrees by neighbors such as Japan, Korea and Vietnam. The first evidence of human presence in the region was found at the Zhoukoudian cave. It is one of the earliest known specimens of Homo erectus, now commonly known as the Peking Man, estimated to have lived from 300,000 to 780,000 years ago.[10][11][12]

Etymology
Main article: Names of China

The traditional (top) and simplified (bottom) characters for \”China\” in Chinese. The first character means \”middle\” or \”center\”, and the second character means \”country\”.English names
The word \”China\”[nb 1] is derived from Cin (چین), a Persian name for China popularized in Europe by Marco Polo.[13][14] In early usage, \”china\” as a term for porcelain was spelled differently than the name of the country, the two words being derived from separate Persian words.[15] Both these words are derived from the Sanskrit word Cīna (चीन),[15] used as a name for China as early as AD 150.[16] The origin of this word is the subject of several conflicting scholarly theories.[17] The traditional theory, proposed in the 17th century by Martin Martini, is that the word is derived from \”Qin\” (秦)(778 BC – 207 BC), the westernmost of the Chinese kingdoms during the Zhou dynasty, or from the succeeding Qin dynasty (221 – 206 BC).[18] In the Hindu scriptures Mahābhārata (5th century BC )[19][20] and Laws of Manu (2nd century BC), the word Cīna is used to refer to a country of \”yellow-colored\” barbarians located in the Tibeto-Burman borderlands east of India.[21]

Chinese names
The official name of China changed with each dynasty. The common name is Zhōngguó (simplified Chinese: 中国; traditional Chinese: 中國, Mandarin pronunciation: [t͡ʂʊŋ˥˥ku̯ɔ˧˥]). This translates traditionally as \”Middle Kingdom,\” or as \”central country.\”

The name Zhōngguó first appeared in the Classic of History (6th century BC), and was used to refer to the late Zhou Dynasty, as they believed that they were the \”center of civilization,\”[nb 2] while peoples in the four cardinals were called Eastern Yi, Southern Man, Western Rong and Northern Di respectively. Some texts imply that \”Zhōngguó\” was originally meant to refer to the capital of the sovereign, to differ from the capital of his vassals.[nb 3] The use of \”Zhōngguó\” implied a claim of political legitimacy, and \”Zhōngguó\” was often used by states who saw themselves as the sole legitimate successor to previous Chinese dynasties; for example, in the era of the Southern Song Dynasty, both the Jin Dynasty and the Southern Song state claimed to be \”Zhōngguó.\”[nb 4]

Zhōngguó came to official use as an abbreviation for the Republic of China (Zhonghua Minguo) after the government\’s establishment in 1912. Since the People\’s Republic of China, established in 1949, now controls the great majority of the area encompassed within the traditional concept of \”China\”, the People\’s Republic is the political unit most commonly identified with the abbreviated name Zhōngguó, with the Republic of China nowadays known commonly as \”Taiwan\”.[nb 5]

Ancient China was one of the earliest centers of human civilization. Chinese civilization was also one of the few to invent writing,[9] the others being Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley civilization, the Maya and other Mesoamerican civilizations, the Minoan civilization of ancient Greece, and Ancient Egypt.[22]

Prehistory
Archaeological evidence suggests that the earliest hominids in China date from 250,000 to 2.24 million years ago.[23][24] A cave in Zhoukoudian (near present-day Beijing) has fossils dated at somewhere between 300,000 to 780,000 years.[25][26][27] The fossils are of Peking Man, an example of Homo erectus who used fire.

The earliest evidence of a fully modern human in China comes from Liujiang County, Guangxi, where a cranium has been found and dated at approximately 67,000 years old. Although much controversy persists over the dating of the Liujiang remains,[28][29] a partial skeleton from Minatogawa in Okinawa, Japan has been dated to 16,600 to 18,250 years old, so modern humans probably reached China before that time.[citation needed]

Dynastic rule
Main articles: Dynasties in Chinese history and Chinese sovereign

Jade deer ornament made during the first historic Chinese dynasty, the Shang, 17th to 11th Century BC.Chinese tradition names the first dynasty Xia, but it was considered mythical until scientific excavations found early bronze-age sites at Erlitou in Henan Province in 1959.[30] Archaeologists have since uncovered urban sites, bronze implements, and tombs in locations cited as Xia\’s in ancient historical texts, but it is impossible to verify that these remains are of the Xia without written records from the period.

Some of the thousands of life-size Terracotta Warriors of the Qin Dynasty, ca. 210 BC.The first Chinese dynasty that left historical records, the loosely feudal Shang (Yin), settled along the Yellow River in eastern China from the 17th to the 11th century BC. The Oracle bone script of the Shang Dynasty represent the oldest forms of Chinese writing found and the direct ancestor of modern Chinese characters used throughout East Asia. The Shang were invaded from the west by the Zhou, who ruled from the 12th to the 5th century BC, until their centralized authority was slowly eroded by feudal warlords. Many independent states eventually emerged out of the weakened Zhou state, and continually waged war with each other in the Spring and Autumn period, only occasionally deferring to the Zhou king. By the time of the Warring States period, there were seven powerful sovereign states, each with its own king, ministry and army.

The first unified Chinese state was established by Qin Shi Huang of the Qin state in 221 BC, who proclaimed himself as the \”First Emperor\” and created many reforms in the Empire, notably the forced standardization of the Chinese language and measurements. The Qin Dynasty lasted only fifteen years, as its harsh legalist and authoritarian policies soon led to widespread rebellion.

The subsequent Han Dynasty ruled China between 206 BC and 220 AD, and created a lasting Han cultural identity among its populace that extends to the present day. The Han Dynasty expanded the empire\’s territory considerably with military campaigns reaching Korea, Vietnam, Mongolia and Central Asia, and also helped establish the Silk Road in Central Asia.

After Han\’s collapse, another period of disunion followed, including the highly chivalric period of the Three Kingdoms. Independent Chinese states of this period such as Wu opened diplomatic relations with Japan, introducing the Chinese writing system there. In 580 AD, China was reunited under the Sui. However, the Sui Dynasty was short-lived after a failure in the Goguryeo-Sui Wars (598–614) weakened it.

10th–11th century Longquan celadon porcelain pieces from Zhejiang province, during the Song Dynasty.Under the succeeding Tang and Song dynasties, Chinese technology and culture reached its zenith. The Tang Empire was at its height of power until the middle of the 8th century, when the An Shi Rebellion destroyed the prosperity of the empire. The Song dynasty was the first government in world history to issue paper money and the first Chinese polity to establish a permanent standing navy. Between the 10th and 11th centuries, the population of China doubled in size. This growth came about through expanded rice cultivation in central and southern China, and the production of abundant food surpluses.

Within its borders, the Northern Song Dynasty had a population of some 100 million people. The Song Dynasty was a culturally rich period in for philosophy and the arts. Landscape art and portrait painting were brought to new levels of maturity and complexity after the Tang Dynasty, and social elites gathered to view art, share their own, and make trades of precious artworks. Philosophers such as Cheng Yi and Chu Hsi reinvigorated Confucianism with new commentary, infused Buddhist ideals, and emphasized a new organization of classic texts that brought about the core doctrine of Neo-Confucianism.

In 1271, the Mongol leader and fifth Khagan of the Mongol Empire Kublai Khan established the Yuan Dynasty, with the last remnant of the Song Dynasty falling to the Yuan in 1279. Before the Mongol invasion, Chinese dynasties reportedly had approximately 120 million inhabitants; after the conquest was completed in 1279, the 1300 census reported roughly 60 million people.[31] A peasant named Zhu Yuanzhang overthrew the Mongols in 1368 and founded the Ming Dynasty.[32] Ming Dynasty thinkers such as Wang Yangming would further critique and expand Neo-Confucianism with ideas of individualism and innate morality that would have tremendous impact on later Japanese thought. Chosun Korea also became a nominal vassal state of Ming China and adopted much of its Neo-Confucian bureaucratic structure.

Under the Ming Dynasty, China had another golden age, with one of the strongest navies in the world, a rich and prosperous economy and a flourishing of the arts and culture. It was during this period that Zheng He led explorations throughout the world, possibly reaching America. During the early Ming Dynasty China\’s capital was moved from Nanjing to Beijing. In 1644 Beijing was sacked by a coalition of rebel forces led by Li Zicheng, a minor Ming official turned leader of the peasant revolt. The last Ming Emperor Chongzhen committed suicide when the city fell. The Manchu Qing Dynasty then allied with Ming Dynasty general Wu Sangui and overthrew Li\’s short-lived Shun Dynasty, and subsequently seized control of Beijing, which became the new capital of the Qing dynasty.

A corner tower of the Forbidden City at night; the palace was the residence for the imperial family from the reign of the Yongle Emperor of the Ming Dynasty in the 15th century until the fall of the Qing Dynasty in 1912.The Qing Dynasty, which lasted until 1912, was the last dynasty in China. In the 19th century the Qing Dynasty adopted a defensive posture towards European imperialism, even though it engaged in imperialistic expansion into Central Asia. At this time China awoke to the significance of the rest of the world, the West in particular. As China opened up to foreign trade and missionary activity, opium produced by British India was forced onto Qing China. Two Opium Wars with Britain weakened the Emperor\’s control. European imperialism proved to be disastrous for China:

Clipper ship Celestial EmpireThe Arrow War (1856–1860) [2nd Opium War] saw another disastrous defeat for China. The subsequent passing of the humiliating Treaty of Tianjin in 1856 and the Beijing Conventions of 1860 opened up more of the country to foreign penetrations and more ports for their vessels. Hong Kong was ceded over to the British. Thus, the \”unequal treaties system\” was established. Heavy indemnities had to be paid by China, and more territory and control were taken over by the foreigners.[33]

The weakening of the Qing regime, and the apparent humiliation of the unequal treaties in the eyes of the Chinese people had several consequences. One consequence was the Taiping Civil War, which lasted from 1851 to 1862. It was led by Hong Xiuquan, who was partly influenced by an idiosyncratic interpretation of Christianity. Hong believed himself to be the son of God and the younger brother of Jesus. Although the Qing forces were eventually victorious, the civil war was one of the bloodiest in human history, costing at least 20 million lives (more than the total number of fatalities in the First World War), with some estimates of up to two hundred million. Other costly rebellions followed the Taiping Rebellion, such as the Punti-Hakka Clan Wars (1855–67), Nien Rebellion (1851–1868), Muslim Rebellion (1862–77), Panthay Rebellion (1856–1873) and the Miao Rebellion (1854–73).[34][35]

These rebellions resulted in an estimated loss of several million lives each and led to disastrous results for the economy and the countryside.[36][37][38] The flow of British opium hastened the empire\’s decline. In the 19th century, the age of colonialism was at its height and the great Chinese Diaspora began. About 35 million overseas Chinese live in Southeast Asia today.[39] The famine in 1876–79 claimed between 9 and 13 million lives in northern China.[40] From 108 BC to 1911 AD, China experienced 1,828 famines,[41] or one per year, somewhere in the empire.[42]

While China was wracked by continuous war, Meiji Japan succeeded in rapidly modernizing its military and set its sights on Korea and Manchuria. At the request of the Korean emperor, the Chinese government sent troops to aid in suppressing the Tonghak Rebellion in 1894. However, Japan also sent troops to Korea, leading to the First Sino-Japanese War, which resulted in Qing China\’s loss of influence in the Korean Peninsula as well as the cession of Taiwan to Japan.

Following this series of defeats, a reform plan for the empire to become a modern Meiji-style constitutional monarchy was drafted by the Emperor Guangxu in 1898, but was opposed and stopped by the Empress Dowager Cixi, who placed Emperor Guangxu under house arrest in a coup d\’état. Further destruction followed the ill-fated 1900 Boxer Rebellion against westerners in Beijing.

By the early 20th century, mass civil disorder had begun, and calls for reform and revolution were heard across the country. The 38-year-old Emperor Guangxu died under house arrest on 14 November 1908, suspiciously just a day before Cixi\’s own death. With the throne empty, he was succeeded by Cixi\’s handpicked heir, his two year old nephew Puyi, who became the Xuantong Emperor. Guangxu\’s consort, who became the Empress Dowager Longyu. In another coup de\’tat, Yuan ShiKai overthrew the last Qing emperor, and forced empress Dowager Longyu to sign the abdication decree as regent in 1912, ending two thousand years of imperial rule in China. She died, childless, in 1913.

Republic of China (1912–49)

On 1 January 1912, the Republic of China was established, heralding the end of the Qing Dynasty. Sun Yat-sen of the Kuomintang (the KMT or Nationalist Party) was proclaimed provisional president of the republic. However, the presidency was later given to Yuan Shikai, a former Qing general, who had ensured the defection of the entire Beiyang Army from the Qing Empire to the revolution. In 1915, Yuan proclaimed himself Emperor of China but was forced to abdicate and return the state to a republic when he realized it was an unpopular move, not only with the population but also with his own Beiyang Army and its commanders.

After Yuan Shikai\’s death in 1916, China was politically fragmented, with an internationally recognized but virtually powerless national government seated in Peking (Beijing). Warlords in various regions exercised actual control over their respective territories. In the late 1920s, the Kuomintang, under Chiang Kai-shek, was able to reunify the country under its own control, moving the nation\’s capital to Nanking (Nanjing) and implementing \”political tutelage\”, an intermediate stage of political development outlined in Sun Yat-sen\’s program for transforming China into a modern, democratic state. Effectively, political tutelage meant one-party rule by the Kuomintang.

The Sino-Japanese War of 1937–1945 (part of World War II) forced an uneasy alliance between the Nationalists and the Communists as well as causing around 20 million Chinese civilian deaths.[43] With the surrender of Japan in 1945, China emerged victorious but financially drained. The continued distrust between the Nationalists and the Communists led to the resumption of the Chinese Civil War. In 1947, constitutional rule was established, but because of the ongoing Civil War many provisions of the ROC constitution were never implemented in mainland China.

After its victory in the Chinese Civil War, the Communist Party of China (CCP) led by Mao Zedong gained control of most of Mainland China. On 1 October 1949, they established the People\’s Republic of China as a Socialist State headed by a \”Democratic Dictatorship\” with the CCP as the only legal political party, thus, laying claim as the successor state of the ROC. The central government of the Chinese Nationalist Party led by Chiang Kai-shek retreated to the island of Taiwan that it had occupied at the end of World War II, and moved the ROC government there. Major armed hostilities ceased in 1950 but no peace treaty has been signed. An estimated 36 million died during the Great Chinese Famine of 1958–61.[44][45]

Beginning in the late 1970s, the Republic of China began the implementation of full, multi-party, representative democracy in the territories still under its control (Taiwan, and a number of smaller islands including Quemoy and Matsu). Today, the ROC has active political participation by all sectors of society. The main cleavage in ROC politics is the issue of eventual political unification with the Chinese mainland vs. formal independence of Taiwan.

After the Chinese Civil War, mainland China underwent a series of disruptive socioeconomic movements starting in the late 1950s with the Great Leap Forward and continuing in the 1960s with the Cultural Revolution that left much of its education system and economy in shambles. With the death of its first generation Communist Party leaders such as Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai, the PRC began implementing a series of political and economic reforms advocated by Deng Xiaoping that eventually formed the foundation for mainland China\’s rapid economic development starting in the 1990s.

Post-1978 reforms in mainland China have led to some relaxation of control over many areas of society. However, the PRC government still has almost absolute control over politics, and it continually seeks to eradicate what it perceives as threats to the social, political and economic stability of the country. Examples include the fight against terrorism, jailing of political opponents and journalists, custody regulation of the press, regulation of religion, and suppression of independence/secessionist movements. In 1989, the student protests at Tiananmen Square were violently put to an end by the Chinese military after 15 days of martial law. In 1997, Hong Kong was ceded to the PRC by the United Kingdom, and in 1999, Macau was handed over by Portugal.

Since 1949, mainland China is administered by the People\’s Republic of China—a one-party state under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party—while the island of Taiwan and surrounding islands are administered by the Republic of China—a democratic multi-party state. After the founding of the People\’s Republic in 1949, both states claimed to be the sole legitimate ruler of all of China. After the Kuomintang retreat to Taiwan in 1949, the Republic of China had maintained official diplomatic relations with most states around the world, but by the 1970s, a shift had occurred in international diplomatic circles and the People\’s Republic of China gained the upper hand in international diplomatic relations and recognition count.

In 1971, under UN resolution 2758, the representatives of Chiang Kai-shek to the United Nations were expelled from the intergovernmental organization. With the expulsion of the representatives, and effectively the Republic of China, the representatives of the People\’s Republic of China were invited to assume China\’s seat on the UN Security Council, the UN General Assembly and other United Nations councils and agencies. Later attempts by the Republic of China to rejoin the UN have either been blocked by the People\’s Republic of China, which has veto power on the UN Security Council, or rejected by the United Nations Secretariat or a United Nations General Assembly committee responsible for the General Assembly\’s agenda.[46]

Since the relocation of its capital to Taiwan, the Republic of China has not formally renounced its claim to authority over all of China, nor has it changed its official maps, which include the mainland and Mongolia. Following the introduction of full democracy, and the electoral victory of the DPP\’s Chen Shui-bian in the presidential elections, the ROC had adopted a policy of separating the state\’s identity from \”China\”, while moving towards identifying the state as \”Taiwan\”.

However, the ROC has not made any formal moves to change the name, flag, or national anthem of the state to reflect a Taiwanese identity due to the lack of consensus within Taiwan, pressure from the United States and the fear of invasion or military action from the People\’s Republic of China against the island. The Republic of China during the DPP years did not actively pursue its claims on mainland China or Mongolia. However, after having been elected as president, KMT\’s Ma Ying-jeou asserted that, constitutionally, mainland China is part of the Republic of China.[47] The People\’s Republic of China claims to have succeeded the Republic of China as the sole legitimate governing authority of all of China, which, from the official viewpoint of the People\’s Republic of China, includes the island of Taiwan.

Over the last 50 years, both the Republic of China and the People\’s Republic of China have used diplomatic and economic means to compete for recognition in the international arena. Because most international, intergovernmental organizations observe the One-China policy of the People\’s Republic of China, the PRC has been able to pressure organizations, such as the World Health Organization and the International Olympic Committee, to refuse to officially recognize the Republic of China. Due to the One-China policy, states around the world are pressured to refuse, or to cut off diplomatic relations with the Republic of China. As a result, 23 U.N. member states currently maintain official diplomatic relations with the Republic of China, while the vast majority of U.N. member states maintain official diplomatic relations with the People\’s Republic of China.

Territory and environment
Historical political divisions
Main article: History of the political divisions of China

Territories occupied by different dynasties as well as modern political states throughout the history of China.Top-level political divisions of China have altered as administrations changed. Top levels included circuits and provinces. Below that, there have been prefectures, subprefectures, departments, commanderies, districts, and counties. Recent divisions also include prefecture-level cities, county-level cities, towns and townships.

Most Chinese dynasties were based in the historical heartlands of China, known as China proper. Various dynasties also expanded into peripheral territories like Inner Mongolia, Manchuria, Xinjiang, and Tibet. The Manchu-established Qing Dynasty and its successors, the ROC and the PRC, incorporated these territories into the Chinese empire.

Terrace rice fields in Yunnan.
Snowy mountains in Diqing.China ranges from mostly plateaus and mountains in the west to lower lands in the east. Principal rivers flow from west to east, including the Yangtze (central), the Huang He (Yellow river, north-central), and the Amur (northeast), and sometimes toward the south (including the Pearl River, Mekong River, and Brahmaputra), with most Chinese rivers emptying into the Pacific Ocean.

In the east, along the shores of the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea there are extensive and densely populated alluvial plains. On the edges of the Inner Mongolian plateau in the north, grasslands can be seen. Southern China is dominated by hills and low mountain ranges. In the central-east are the deltas of China\’s two major rivers, the Huang He and Yangtze River. Most of China\’s arable lands lie along these rivers, and they were the centers of China\’s major ancient civilizations. Other major rivers include the Pearl River, Mekong, Brahmaputra and Amur. Yunnan Province is considered a part of the Greater Mekong Subregion, which also includes Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.[48]

Main geographic features and regions of China.In the west, the north has a great alluvial plain, and the south has a vast calcareous tableland traversed by hill ranges of moderate elevation, and the Himalayas, containing Earth\’s highest point, Mount Everest. The northwest also has high plateaus with more arid desert landscapes such as the Takla-Makan and the Gobi Desert, which has been expanding. During many dynasties, the southwestern border of China has been the high mountains and deep valleys of Yunnan, which separate modern China from Burma, Laos and Vietnam.

The Paleozoic formations of China, excepting only the upper part of the Carboniferous system, are marine, while the Mesozoic and Tertiary deposits are estuarine and freshwater, or else of terrestrial origin. Groups of volcanic cones occur in the Great Plain of north China. In the Liaodong and Shandong Peninsulas, there are basaltic plateaus.

The climate of China varies greatly. The northern zone (containing Beijing) has summer daytime temperatures of more than 30 degrees Celsius and winters of Arctic severity. The central zone (containing Shanghai) has a temperate continental climate with very hot summers and cold winters. The southern zone (containing Guangzhou) has a subtropical climate with very hot summers and mild winters.

Due to a prolonged drought and poor agricultural practices, dust storms have become usual in the spring in China.[49] Dust has blown to southern Mainland China and Taiwan, and has reached the West Coast of the United States. Water, erosion, and pollution control have become important issues in China\’s relations with other countries.

Wang Yangming, a highly influential Neo-Confucian.
A Chinese Opera (Beijing Opera) performance in Beijing of the historical character Yang Guifei.Confucianism was the official philosophy throughout most of Imperial China\’s history, and mastery of Confucian texts was the primary criterion for entry into the imperial bureaucracy. China\’s traditional values were derived from various versions of Confucianism. A number of more authoritarian strains of thought have also been influential, such as Legalism.

There was often conflict between the philosophies, e.g. the Song Dynasty Neo-Confucians believed Legalism departed from the original spirit of Confucianism. Examinations and a culture of merit remain greatly valued in China today. In recent years, a number of New Confucians (not to be confused with Neo-Confucianism) have advocated that democratic ideals and human rights are quite compatible with traditional Confucian \”Asian values\”.[50]

With the rise of European economic and military power beginning in the mid-19th century, non-Chinese systems of social and political organization gained adherents in China. Some of these would-be reformers totally rejected China\’s cultural legacy, while others sought to combine the strengths of Chinese and European cultures. In essence, the history of 20th-century China is one of experimentation with new systems of social, political, and economic organization that would allow for the reintegration of the nation in the wake of dynastic collapse.

Chinese calligraphy by Mi Fu, Song Dynasty, ca. 1100 CE
A bamboo book copy of Sun Tzu\’s The Art of War, a 20th century reprint of a Qianlong imperial edition.Chinese characters have had many variants and styles throughout Chinese history. Tens of thousands of ancient written documents are still extant, from oracle bones to Qing edicts. This literary emphasis affected the general perception of cultural refinement in China, e.g. the view that calligraphy was a higher art form than painting or drama. Manuscripts of the Classics and religious texts (mainly Confucian, Taoist, and Buddhist) were handwritten by ink brush.

Calligraphy later became commercialized, and works by famous artists became prized possessions. Chinese literature has a long past; the earliest classic work in Chinese, the I Ching or \”Book of Changes\” dates to around 1000 BC. A flourishing of philosophy during the Warring States Period produced such noteworthy works as Confucius\’s Analects and Laozi\’s Tao Te Ching. (See also: the Chinese classics.) Dynastic histories were often written, beginning with Sima Qian\’s seminal Records of the Historian, which was written from 109 BC to 91 BC.

The Tang Dynasty witnessed a poetic flowering, while the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature were written during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Printmaking in the form of movable type was developed during the Song Dynasty. Academies of scholars sponsored by the empire were formed to comment on the classics in both printed and handwritten form. Royalty frequently participated in these discussions as well.

The Song Dynasty was also a period of great scientific literature, and saw the creation of works such as Su Song\’s Xin Yixiang Fayao and Shen Kuo\’s Dream Pool Essays. There were also enormous works of historiography and large encyclopedias, such as Sima Guang\’s Zizhi Tongjian of 1084 AD or the Four Great Books of Song fully compiled and edited by the 11th century.

For centuries, religious and social advancement in China could be achieved through high performance on the imperial examinations. This led to the creation of a meritocracy, although success was available only to males who could afford test preparation. Imperial examinations required applicants to write essays and demonstrate mastery of the Confucian classics. Those who passed the highest level of the exam became elite scholar-officials known as jinshi, a highly esteemed socio-economic position.

Chinese philosophers, writers and poets were highly respected and played key roles in preserving and promoting the culture of the empire. Some classical scholars, however, were noted for their daring depictions of the lives of the common people, often to the displeasure of authorities.The Chinese invented numerous musical instruments, such as the zheng (zither with movable bridges), qin (bridgeless zither), sheng (free reed mouth organ), and xiao (vertical flute) and adopted and developed others such the erhu (alto fiddle or bowed lute) and pipa (pear-shaped plucked lute), many of which later spread throughout East Asia and Southeast Asia, particularly to Japan, Korea, and Vietnam.

Demography
Main articles: Demographics of the People\’s Republic of China, Ethnic groups in Chinese history, and Ethnic minorities in China

Ethnolinguistic map of the People\’s Republic of China and the Republic of ChinaHundreds of ethnic groups have existed in China throughout its history. The largest ethnic group in China by far is the Han. This group, however, is internally diverse and can be further divided into smaller ethnic groups that share similar traits.

Over the last three millennia, many previously distinct ethnic groups in China have been Sinicized into a Han identity, which over time dramatically expanded the size of the Han population. However, these assimilations were usually incomplete, and vestiges of indigenous language and culture still often remain in various regions of China. Because of this, many within the Han identity have maintained distinct linguistic and cultural traditions while still identifying as Han.

Several ethnicities have also dramatically shaped Han culture, e.g. the Manchurian clothing called the qipao became the new \”Chinese\” fashion after the 17th century, replacing earlier Han styles of clothing such as the Hanfu. The modern term Chinese nation (Zhonghua Minzu) is now used to describe a notion of a Chinese nationality that transcends ethnic divisions.

Languages
Main article: Languages of China
Most languages in China belong to the Sino-Tibetan language family, spoken by 29 ethnicities. There are also several major linguistic groups within the Chinese language itself. The most spoken varieties are Mandarin (spoken by over 70% of the population), Wu, Yue (Cantonese), Min, Xiang, Gan, and Hakka. Non-Sinitic languages spoken widely by ethnic minorities include Zhuang (Thai), Mongolian, Tibetan, Uyghur (Turkic), Hmong and Korean.[51]

Classical Chinese was the written standard in China for thousands of years, and allowed for written communication between speakers of various unintelligible languages and dialects in China. Vernacular Chinese or baihua is the written standard based on the Mandarin dialect first popularized in Ming dynasty novels, and was adopted (with significant modifications) during the early 20th century as the national vernacular. Classical Chinese is still part of the high school curriculum and is thus intelligible to some degree to many Chinese.

Religion
Main article: Religion in China

Shang Dynasty bronze script character for tian (天), \”Sky\” or \”Heaven.\”The \”official\” orthodox faith system held by most dynasties of China since at least the Shang Dynasty (1766 BC) until the overthrow of the last dynasty (1911 AD) centered on the worship of Shangdi (\”Supreme God\”) or \”Heaven\” as an omnipotent force.[52] This faith system pre-dated the development of Confucianism and Taoism and the introduction of Buddhism and Christianity.

It has features of monotheism in that Heaven is seen as an omnipotent entity, endowed with personality but no corporeal form. From the writings of Confucius, we find that Confucius himself believed that Heaven cannot be deceived, Heaven guides people\’s lives and maintains a personal relationship with them, and that Heaven gives tasks for people to fulfill to teach them righteousness (yi, 義).[52] However, this faith system was not truly monotheistic since other lesser gods and spirits, which varied with locality, were also worshiped along with Shangdi. Still, variants such as Mohism approached high monotheism, teaching that the function of lesser gods and ancestral spirits is merely to carry out the will of Shangdi, which included observing \”universal love\” (jian\’ai, 兼爱) and shunning fatalism.

Worship of Shangdi and Heaven in ancient China includes the erection of shrines, the last and greatest being the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, and the offering of prayers. The ruler of China in every Chinese dynasty would perform annual sacrificial rituals to Heaven, usually by slaughtering a bull as sacrifice. Although its popularity gradually diminished after the advent of Taoism and Buddhism, among other religions, its concepts remained in use throughout the pre-modern period and have been incorporated in later religions in China, including terminology used in Chinese Christianity.

A monk in the Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai, China.Taoism is an indigenous religion of China and its beginnings are traditionally traced to the composition of Lao Zi\’s Tao Te Ching (The Book of Tao and Its Virtues) or to seminal works by Zhang Daoling. The philosophy of Taoism is centered on \”the way\”; an understanding of which can be likened to recognizing the true nature of the universe. Taoism in its unorganized form is also considered a folk religion of China. More secular derivatives of Taoist ideas include Feng Shui, Sun Tzu\’s Art of War, and acupuncture.

A Chinese Tang Dynasty (618–907) sculpture of the Buddha seated in meditation.Buddhism in China was first introduced from India and Central Asia during the Han dynasty and became very popular among Chinese of all walks of life, embraced particularly by commoners, and sponsored by emperors in certain dynasties. Mahayana (Dacheng, 大乘) is the predominant form of Buddhism practiced in China, where it was largely Sinicized and later exported to Korea, Japan and Vietnam. Some subsets of Mahayana popular in China include Pure Land (Amidism) and Zen. Buddhism is the largest organized faith in China and the country has the most Buddhist adherents in the world. Many Chinese, however, identify themselves as both Taoist and Buddhist at the same time.

Ancestor worship is a major religious theme shared among all Chinese religions. Traditional Chinese culture, Taoism, Confucianism, and Chinese Buddhism all value filial piety, or a love and respect for one\’s parents and ancestors, as one of the most important virtues. Chinese people generally offer prayers and food for their ancestors, light incense and candles, and burn offerings of Joss paper. These activities are typically conducted at the site of ancestral graves or tombs, at an ancestral temple, or at a household shrine.

Christianity in China has developed since at least the 7th century AD with the introduction of the Assyrian Church of the East. Christianity began to make significant inroads in China after the 16th century through Jesuit and later Protestant missionaries. The Taiping Rebellion was influenced to some degree by Christian teachings, and the Boxer Rebellion was in part a reaction against Christianity in China.

Typical interior of a temple.
The Huaisheng Mosque is one of the oldest Mosques in the world, built by Muhammad\’s uncle, Sa`d ibn Abi WaqqasIslam in China dates to a mission in 651, eighteen years after Muhammad\’s death. Muslims came to China for trade, dominating the import/export industry during the Song Dynasty.[53][54] They became influential in government circles, including Zheng He, Lan Yu and Yeheidie\’erding, was one of the people who helped to construct the Yuan Dynasty\’s capital, Khanbaliq. Nanjing became an important center of Islamic study.[55] The Qing Dynasty waged war and genocide against Muslims in the Dungan revolt and Panthay rebellion.[56][57][58]

Judaism in China dates to as early as the 7th or 8th century CE. In the first half of the 20th century, many Jews arrived in Shanghai and Hong Kong during those cities\’ periods of economic expansion, seeking refuge from the Holocaust. Shanghai was notable for its volume of Jewish refugees, as it was the only port in the world to accept them without an entry visa.

Sports and recreation

Dragon boat racing, a popular traditional Chinese sport.For sports in the People\’s Republic of China, see Sport in the People\’s Republic of China, Sports in Hong Kong, and Sports in Macau.
For sports in the Republic of China, see Sports in Taiwan.
Many historians believe that association football originated in China, where a form of the sport may have appeared around 1000 AD.[59] Other popular sports include martial arts, table tennis, badminton, and more recently, golf. Basketball is now popular among young people in urban centers.

There are also many traditional sports. Chinese dragon boat racing occurs during the Duan Wu festival. In Inner Mongolia, Mongolian-style wrestling and horse racing are popular. In Tibet, archery and equestrian sports are part of traditional festivals.[60]

Physical fitness is highly regarded. It is common for the elderly to practice Tai Chi Chuan and qigong in parks. Board games such as International Chess, Go (Weiqi), and Xiangqi (Chinese chess) are also common and have organized formal competitions. The capital city of the People\’s Republic of China, Beijing, hosted the 2008 Olympic Games, a major international sporting event.

Science and technology

Remains of an ancient Chinese handheld crossbow, 2nd century BCFurther information: History of science and technology in China, List of Chinese inventions, and List of Chinese discoveries
Among the technological accomplishments of ancient China were paper (not papyrus) and papermaking, woodblock printing and movable type printing, the early lodestone and needle compass, gunpowder, toilet paper, early seismological detectors, matches, pound locks, the double-action piston pump, blast furnace and cast iron, the iron plough, the multi-tube seed drill, the suspension bridge[61], natural gas as fuel, the differential gear for the South Pointing Chariot, the hydraulic-powered armillary sphere, the hydraulic-powered trip hammer, the mechanical chain drive, the mechanical belt drive, the raised-relief map, the propeller, the crossbow, the cannon, the rocket, the multistage rocket, etc.

Chinese astronomers were among the first to record observations of a supernova. The work of the astronomer Shen Kuo (1031–95) alone was most impressive, as he theorized that the sun and moon were spherical, corrected the position of the polestar with his improved sighting tube, discovered the concept of true north, wrote of planetary motions such as retrogradation, and compared the orbital paths of the planets to points on the shape of a rotating willow leaf. With evidence for them, he also postulated geological theories for the processes of land formation in geomorphology and climate change in paleoclimatology.

Other important astronomers included Gan De, Shi Shen, Zhang Heng, Yi Xing, Zhang Sixun, Su Song and Guo Shoujing. Chinese mathematics evolved independently of Greek mathematics and is therefore of great interest in the history of mathematics. The Chinese were also keen on documenting all of their technological achievements, such as in the Tiangong Kaiwu encyclopedia written by Song Yingxing (1587–1666).

every country has their own positive and negative sides, no country can be classified as the worst or even as the best.. and also, there are lots of factors needed to be seen before judging a single place, for example, some country has low economy yet they are the best when it comes to the beautiful places, or vice versa..some places have good people yet they are very poor when it comes to eceonomy.. so guys dont just judge a single country in just a single minute.. just remember that judging a single person is very hard even for a day, just how hard it is to judge a country with a millions of people in it.. so please don’t generalize,.. ask this yourself, do have a perfect nation for me to judge others? (sorry for my bad grammar)(but i think i have a good perception)

those who labeled some countries as the worst, think again.. and ask this yourself: “who am i to judge?, why did i grow up like this? oh, god! my country mold me this bad? where are my good morals? where’d it go? why did my country take it away from me?

then you can now say, waaaah!… my country SUCKS in upbringing good persons..

PAKISTAN: The country that tops my list and is missing here
Reasons
1. Primary election issue is always something to do with its one of its neighbours
2. Their extreme policies have resulted in the rise of their own Taliban
3. Most of the land are owned by the politicians and their relatives
4. Only country to lose every war it has fought
5. Only country that has passed on Nuclear secrets to others. Their prime nuclear scientist himself was involved.
6. A democracy run and controlled by the Army
7. Economically dependent on the largesses of USA.
8. Existence dependent on neighbour China.
9. An intelligence service that excels at creating trouble elsewhere – more than protecting the country.
10. Breeding Ground of most of the terrorists. (Know any terrorist group that does NOT have a link with Pakistan)
-THE LIST IS ENDLESS !

The list above is biased. I’m sure the author would rather settle down in Thailand or Chechnya – or even Sudan.
Never Pakistan !!

You people need to realise that while India is not the safest or best country in the world, it is certainly not one of the worst. It is a country where most of my family live and one which I visit quite often. Generally it is safer than most countries including its neighbour Pakistan. It is developing and while it still has a long way to go, I feel that it is much closer to becoming a developed nation than most African and Middle East Nations. Poverty still exists, but industries are booming and so is the the Middle Class.

Obviously most of you don’t travel much. All it takes is a couple incidents and you jump out of your pants in fright about going to that country.

Bin Laden, unfortunately, learnt that he could use that element of western paranoia to his own selfish interests. All he has to do is say “hijack” or “bomb” and citizens in western countries scream for more protection. A few tens of billions are raised for heightened security and Bin Laden laughs as he watches those countries slowly spend themselves into bankruptcy, in no small part due to paranoia over terrorist attacks.

The comments on this forum are a wonderful example of western paranoia at work!

I think Pakistan is one of the worst nations in the world, there are no tourists visiting Pakistan only few diplomats and Journos; above all, all foreigners are kept in fortresses (or in layman terms Military controlled Hotels); this is due to rampant Islamic terrorism and Criminalization of entire Pakistani citizenry, instigated and installed by the state authorities at a very young age inside their citizens, as a “systemic process: which is typically found in security states, living in constant “state of paranoia” and complexities ranging from inferiority, “Xenophobia”, illogical threat perception, downtrodden economic situation, total failure of governance and state machinery .

I know the situation of Pakistan, because I cover Pakistan as a Journalist, I don’t see any women on the streets (of-course with some Burqa clad tent houses moving around).

The “Decapitation” of “Danial Pearl” an American journalist of Jewish origin is one of the examples of how “Dangerous” Pakistan is and no doubt it is ranked amongst the most Dangerous places on the planet, due to ongoing perpetual Civil wars at many fronts in Pakistan.

Criminal and “Beggar Gangs” run amok on the filthy streets of Karachi, Quetta, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Sialkot, Gujrawala, Sargodha et al cities of Pakistan; with Islamic terrorists hitting you at will at any place of their choice, many Hotels (with foreigners) have been Bombed (Killed) by crazy Pakistanis in attacks such as “Bombing of Marriott Hotel”, and other incidents of decapitations and target killings.

All the countries of the world have given Red Notice to its travelers about Pakistan due to savagery, barbarism and islamic terrorism in Pakistan and Pakistani society. Hardly anyone visits Pakistan due to suffocating environment and ultra-orthodox bent of life being emulated from 7th Century Bedouin Arabia (per-say trying to become like Arabs in all the wrong ways), with no Human rights, Women Rights, Minority Rights or rule of law in the pretext of following medieval Islamic shariah law (especially, in Pakhtoonkhwa and FATA regions). Period.

On the other hand Millions of Tourists visit Thailand, Europe, Egypt, UK, France, Indonesia, India, Philippines, Ireland, China, Japan, Cambodia, Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka etc, But hardly any tourist visit Ivory Cost, East Timor, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Liberia, Eritrea….However, Egypt, Thailand, India, Indonesia, China, Cambodia, Philippines are the most hospitable places for Foreigners (I have seen thousands of westerners making these countries their permanent homes except in the case of Cambodia, due to language barriers, but soon westerners will make Cambodia their home as its gorgeous and warmhearted), these nations are liberal in the outlook, broad-minded, educated (improving their tally), ancient in culture with different beautiful beliefs, beautiful people, excellent FOOD, beautiful beaches, Mountains, Rivers, Wild Life, Temples, EXOTIC Women (lol); of-course while travelling you have to be careful of the cons as they are to be found everywhere in the world (even at a place as good as Finland), but unlike Somalia, Sierra Leone, Pakistan, Sudan & Taliban Badlands you will not be attacked just because u r a Foreigner or a Non-Muslim or to put into perspective, the criminal society would require handsome ransom from your kidnapping (if not payed be prepared to lose the “pumpkin” on your shoulder) .

These were my thoughts based on my extensive “travel” to almost all the continents and major countries, meanwhile conducting extensive research firsthand. No disrespect to any country but, I have just stated facts as a stern warning to unsuspecting travelers to avoid lands under perpetual disturbance due to criminal and terrorist activities.

Ciao!! And happy Travelling!!

Hey guys,
some of the people were a bit rude and incredibly biased…ESPECIALLY THAT GIRL LAURA who thought that all Asian and African countries were the best and that Scandinavia was the best..
It’s racial discrimination and an insult to say that a certain country sucks in every aspect. Yes, there are countries that are a bit dangerous, but that dosen’t mean people have to go insult countries like Pakistan. It’s the people that make a country unstable and every country has potential as any other. It’s the people who make the country either a safe or unsafe place.
I think that no countries should e put on that list, because frankly I believe that the list sucks.

Three years gone by since the author wrote this freaking article and people are still fighting on the worst countries. For those who put names of other countries on this page – talk about the countries YOU have visited, stayed and experienced. Don’t go on perception you have built on media reports.

Talk sense and be sensible. Don’t just piss on the floor because your bladder is full. Go piss in the toilet, not in front of me.

Pakistan sucks on US dollars to survive, their immigrants come in ship loads to western countries to escape HUNGER in Pakistan, and after that when their stomachs get filled by food payed by US and the West, they spew conspiracies against the hand which feeds these thankless bastards and blow things up in the name of demonic islam.

Paki are probably the worst shameless and thankless people on the planet we should see how they live in UK, these illiterate 7th century wannabe copycat ragheads are the filthies scum on the streets on London with Crime in their blood and are found shouting “Jihad on the west almost on very street”, surprisingly the liberal west allows these MFs Pakistanis to destroy every country they take refuge, due to islam and jihad in pakistan by muslims. They are leaving their countries where their fellow muslims are committing crime against fellow muslims (in accordance to pathetic islam and koran) But these retarded pakistanis after geting some Hand-out money (maintenance money ) in their pockets and FOOD provided by UK or US start formenting their islamic ideas of destruction for Christians and other non-muslims in the west. I hv been with these muslims and learned by converting for some time….they muslims especially Pakistanis are sick in the head Worst than Nazis (these so called Educated Liberal Pakistanis are the worst, we should actually see them talk amongst their brethren away from non-muslims, they show their true Horrific islamic face)

hey i heard that all of you are sayinthat pakistan sucks too many terrorists especially indians commenting about pakistan but still its not a coward like india when my father was young india released the water of it\’s damn and flooded that area who says india is going to be a superpower india lost two times from pakistan . india is a developing country so is pakistan. we have better nuclear weapons than india our atom bomb is way better than indias . you know i have many indian friends they all only say that inia and pakistan should stop fighting and start living u know india is scared of pakistan u can search it all over the internet india is never going to be a superpower and yeah we never say any thing against your religion and yeah why does india want to capture pakistan . first of all we never flooded their country india . if they think they are so great and if they say muslim suck yeah we feel bad but we don\’t reply hindus are crap or stuff we never say anything against ur religion because our relegion says that we should respect other relegion we are not allowed to make fun of them

I think people writting on India are either mad or mental They must be afried or jelous about us. Gus I am an India and beleive me I ndia is a wonderful place. I t is worlds most colourful country. People are really friendly.They have a huge respect for people. It is a traditional counrty as well as very modern. We discoverd water on Moon. We have satellites. We are very modern and by 2020 India will be a huge power. We are having world 3rd largest Army. Billions of places to visit. and also many wonderful things.
No state is fighting to get seprated. We have a huge unity. No one can breck that. India is a very peaceful country. Now-a-days it is very safe. So please don’t give any reviews if you don’t know anyhting about us.

India-the best [Lvable earth]

Comon guys, Akhilesh is absolutly right. Grow-up. We should get together and make this world better. What we are going to get by killing others? Use your brains and try to stop these things. No one can force any country till it is directly or indirectly troubling others. India is always ready to do friendship with Pakistan. Give me one example of troubling Pakistani people. We don’t want to trouble innocent people. We are also trying to make friendship with China. And remember we also have thoughts and fillings. These all lists are fake. It depends on each individual, how he/she thinks and how and where he went also in which days. So I will request you all to stop this childish thing and LET US MAKE FRIENDSHIP. Nothing gonna change by making a line between two countries. People,thoughts remain the same. I will request you all agin to stop this, and I will openly announce or ask or request all my Pakistani brithers and sister also others to make friendship. By being together we need to fight with some reallu horrible things as global worming. To fight we need to be alive first. SO GUYS WANNA MAKE FRIENDSHIP WITH EACH OTHERS?

Proud to be Indian

I am answering for the review-India it’s enough.-
First thing if a dan is filled with the water what can we do? We have to excrete the water and if we won’t do that it can brech off and then can clean your country. Also the thing INDIA IS GOING TO BECOME THE MOST STRONG POWER TILL 2050 is right. and no one add these things on internet as advertisement. You can find that in news. About missiles, We have better missiles that you and we use OUR money for progress not like you, MOEY TAKEN FROM U.S.A. UNDER THE NAME OF HUNGER RELEIFE AND USING THEM FOR MISSILES AND STILL LOOSING. Nice plans ha. He said we are afraid and thats why asking for friendship. So stupid, we are asking you because in the next war we don’t want to smass you. don’t try to trouble use. I know speacking wrong and things which are not true is your countries problem, may god bless you. We never say anything to your god. But you always have problem with Hindus. You should see the pictures of 26/11.omb blasks. Pakistan will be there because of Talibani’s did bomb blasts there. but they used to trouble Afaganistan first. And you cant flood India because no river flow in that direction. so shut up. and if someone is talking about safety then U.S.A. will be one of them for 9/11 also bomb found in Times square. U.K. will also in the list for London b It was a horrible thing. Guys when we are going to stop these things? What we are getting? Someone said we want to do friendship ya, I am ready but stop making fun of others and to write wrong or false things. I am saying true. But from now, I want to do friendship with all. Common, for OUR world. Everyone thinks that my country is the best so we all are best so camon stop this nuisance now. and SAVE THE WORLD.

@American Guy:
So you wanna say that all those countries which stand against USA’s capture policies bad. Clear your facts dude, if we don’t stand against crazy USA, you people will just go on invading other countries for your personal benefits, leaving world in an unstable condition. Many countries are suffering due to the mistakes committed by USA.For your information the list is given below.
1. Afghanistan: Invaded for getting armies in Asia.(especially used for gathering armies which were later used for Iraq’s invasion).
2.Iraq: Invaded for getting control on oil mines.

sorry the actual list is too lengthy. so you can just go through the link given below:
http://www.krysstal.com/democracy_whyusa02.html

from this u should get idea about what USA is doing and about its government, which is fooling you people saying that they are spreading peace in the word. Still if you have any doubt just go through the infinite e-docs on USA’s faulty foreign policies.

And one more thing, i would like to live in Hell rather to be in USA with such selfish, cruel and self obsessed people who don’t respect others’ freedom.

As for the comment by “Just Truth ” the U.S.A is one of the best places to visit, beautiful Beaches, great shops, night life, inexpensive, Do and Do not Warnings for tourists on Billboards and unless i’ve been incredibaly lucky which I doubt, nice helpful people

Sep 19th, 2010

@ Just Truth

I’m from the USA, and as a matter of fact, NOT EVERYONE in this country has no respect for everyone else’s freedom. I personally think everyone DESERVES freedom and really strongly disagree with our stupid government. And there are a lot of people like me. I know we’re portrayed throughout history as a bunch of self-centered assholes that want nothing more than our own benefit, but there’s also a good few million people living in this country, and not everyone wants to be this way. We just have no choice in the matter (despite what the government says about how “the people choose”).

So, just thought I’d clarify this for you. Our government is dumb, not everyone agrees. So please don’t hate all americans. I don’t hate everyone in countries that cause problems, I just hate the specific people that cause the problems.

Pass that on to your friends too. We aren’t really that bad, our government makes the decisions, unfortunately. And the celebrities that make us look bad, them too….
Thanks!

Sep 25th, 2010

This makes me really sad. I’m a US citizen, and its just horrible how it really is the truth that everyone makes us seem like such bad people. Because I hate our government. I want to take control of it and just make peace. I don’t want to be a self centered asshole like the people who represent us are. Personally, I’m a really accepting person. My friends and family are too. And we’re represented by such terrible people, and everyone only hears about our latest screw ups. All the good things that ever happen are masked. And all the good people are shoved into boxes and forced to stay quiet. Our government is as corrupt as anyone else. But I guarentee if you travel to America, you will find some good people. (Just do NOT go to big cities like New York or Boston or LA, because there people are always in a rush and hate everyone that gets in their way. Go to a more suburban area.) And there you’ll find some more accepting people. Unfortunately I don’t have that much interest in politics, or much skill in it, but if I did I’d definitely try to run for President and show everyone that we are not all that bad. Because we aren’t. We just seem it because its always the pricks that speak for us.

I’m a Canadian living in Pakistan and I’m alive – isn’t that enough proof that Pakistan isn’t all that bad? You can’t have a fixed opinion about a country without actually visiting it, really. I really think Pakistan is one of the most versatile country in the world; It has beautiful mountains, beautiful landscape (honestly, the north side is amazing), it gets hot as hell but then the winters are freezing, rains in the monsoon season are perfect and if you want to commit suicide, you go to Peshawar. The media only shows the poverty stricken side of Pakistan when actually there are people so loaded and informative it’s quite interesting to talk to them. You think Pakistan is a bad country? Fine, be that way, but tell me one thing: Are you cruel enough to laugh upon the death of thousands of Pakistanis in their own country every day? I mean, it’s not their fault the talibans have gone wild in Pakistan. Honestly, they’re amazingly nice people. You should feel sorry and sympathize instead of laugh and say it’s the worst country.

All of the hatred towards the US is understandable in some cases, but also due to an indoctrinated hatred towards us that has been occurring for decades. Sure we meddling in countries business. It has been happening for years. Btw, a little history lesson for whoever said the US killed all the Native Americans- Spain killed 90% of the Indians before the US even became a country. Get your facts straight. Secondly, all of you hate the US, but most of you do not realize how much your country owes to the US. There is a reason the world entered a economic crisis when the US did. The US economy affects every economy across the world. Check what countries your country imports and exports to. I will bet the US is a very high percentage. Most of your economy is from the US, most of your donations is from the US(they may donate the smallest % of their GDP, but their GDP is so large that the actual money donated is far higher than any other). So, not only does your country use the US for food(largest supplier of wheat, etc), it also uses it to buy all of your products, for your government to import items so that you can buy them and they receive the tariff and tax money, etc etc. Without America, most of your countries economies would collapse. You think the US is owned by the Middle East over oil? The US is owned by the oil company execs in our own country. They refuse to allow the US to move on from oil. We have the technology, they just would pull their donations to candidates if they voted to approve any bill supporting another means of energy consumption. As soon as oil runs out, we will easily find another source of energy. I mean, oil has been spewing out of the ground for millions of years, it was the US who figured out something useful to do with it. We created the telephone, nuclear energy, the internet(sort of), a viable car, ways to farm things, etc. You really think we can’t figure something out? And for all you saying the US is in Iraq for oil, blah blah, why have oil prices gone UP in the US? Why has how much oil cost gone up, and the amount of oil available gone down? Yah…free oil my ass.Saddam was already providing oil at below market costs for the US, and OPEC is still providing oil for us.

Basically, if you did not have the US right now, most countries economies would fall(a lot less oil bought from other countries, which is the main income of most arabic countries), most countries source of food would fall, most countries source of donations and humanitarian aid would fall, and the world would basically be completely worse off. Look at all that the US does for the world instead of a single war.

DEFINITELY is an evil empire, with a fascist government (Democrats or Republicans, it doesn’t matter). And if the U.S.A. is the Evil Empire today, the U.K. is definitely the Evil Kingdom!

USA is for sure the worst in the world. The planet has never been a safe place since the Americans stuck their foreign policies in. How much do they suck. We get their awful TV with their awfully transparent people. They have a TV network that is even worse for dictatorship than North Korea. They have the subtlest form of dictatorship yet claim to be free. They have the tolerance of an armed nuke on free fall when it comes to countries with oil that stand up against them. They have a country run by jews yet think the world won’t see why they really support Israel. For such a young country and lets face it America is a baby in this world compared to the rest of it, they have to have the worst attitude for the rest of the world. Oh and their sports are really the worst :P

Travel to Pakistan on your risk. If you are Suicidal or like fatal tourism then you will certainly love Pakistan.
No International events take place in Pakistan coz of security reason.
Be it any Sports, Pakistani players plays their home matches in other countries coz no players want to go to Pakistan.

Pakistan played their Home Davis Cup Ties against Newzealand in Newzealand coz Newzealanders refused to travel to Pakistan. Their next Home Tie is against HongKong and HongKong players are planning to refuse to travel too.

Pakistanis are stripped of as World Cup Cricket Host coz its dangerous place for foreign team.

Pakistan played their home test cricket series against Australia in England and will play against South Africa in Middle East. Australians and South Africans prefer life over cricket matches.

Srilankan players were attacked by some terrorist near stadium during a test series. They dared to go there.

Forbes Magazine says that Pakistan is one of seriously worst place to visit unless you are suicidal.

But Still you get influence by any Pakistani’s Comment here and dare to go there, then you must be a seriously brave human being or foolishly lame asshole.

all countries are good for their natives. for those people who were saying india a hell i want to make it clear that either you have not visited to a true india or you do not visited india having an intention to explore. your aim might be to find worse about india. man INDIA the worlds largest democracy in the world you know there is not so much difference between the number of people here and that of china. but the chinese area is many times larger than india. isnt it a country who is serving its natives by giving them a message of peace. you know all powerful countries need to sign for the CTBT. comprehensive test ban treaty. for the reason of peace its the only country who is having all the nuclear powers even by not signing the agreement. do you understand that. now come to education. people here are the largest engineering graduates. around 35 percent in microsoft are indians. “0″ is the indian origination. i cant give all the facts about india in such a smaller note. visit here and ill show you whats real india, youll get a diversified culture, different people, different religions, different lifestyles but having a strong cordiial relation with each other that called india. beggars and patients are a part of struggling india. do you know that india has the ability to solve the problem by peace and thats truth have a look on your own country how many fights? here we havent fought for money we havent looted anyone. we are hard workers. have faith in it. its a secular country. some idiots were saying that india has bad relations with china pakistan. no. india has bad relations with terrorists we welcome pakistan we welcome china. but we are not so much ignaorant that well leave the terrorists as normally. usa the most powerfull country is also affected by terrorism thats the worse side of a country. so for next time when u visit india. make an intention to explore the real india. i am sure you will find your visa fee not going in waste.

You can say things about each country. However, everyone’s opinion is different. To Muslims another country may not be as good as theirs. If you are used to a democratic government and participate in it, then you may believe that it is the best way to run the country. However, if it a dictatorship and you consider the current dictator an appropriate ruler, then you would probably think less of countries other than yours. Most have a sense of nationalism, but where you are raised also defines how you think. I live in America, and I hope not to offend anybody, but you can give notice to increasing gangs and decreasing morality in general. However, if you lived in India, you may like the declined caste system, Hinduism, etc., and have nationalism for that country. To everyone, your list of best and worst countries must take into consideration the opinion of the 6 billion plus people in the world, and the economy, history, birth rate and mortality, etc. of that country. I am Christian personally, but in Iraq, if you are a rebel fighter, you may hate Christianity and love your religion. There will be conflicting interests for each side of the story, and you must take each in consideration. That is my opinion on the best and worst countries.

Pakistan without doubt is the worst country. I have travelled all of South Asia and don’t belong to any of those countries. Pakistan people are not educated, corruption is high, government is of no good, Army is blinded by corruption and propoganda to create troubles in India. Education system is broken and too much religion focus (not that it is bad) but its unifocal in its approach.
Of all the countries I visited I enjoyed my Stay in India the best. Yes, there is poverty there too but in general people are happy and government is atleast attempting to remove poverty.
China was great but the communist attitude didn’t provide the flexibility I saw in India.

We’re stuck-up in the glitters of this world..aren’t we? & we don’t have time :P

In the name of terrorism.. whattay genius.. it has left all rulers/empires/dynasties/conquerors behind.. being the biggest terrorist state in the world terrorizing all other countries in the name of eliminating terrorism.. killing of innocent women/children.. in the name of umm.. yea “collateral damage” awesome :P

In search of one guy “Usama bin Laden” you kill the entire population of that nation.. uh & having the best army/weapons/technology/intelligence in the world but you can’t find Usama bin Laden? weird.. all made up drama to invade / capture the world resources..

No offense to any American but that’s a harsh reality.. I’m from Pakistan & I”ve never seen my country so badly screwed up ever since it became a US ally in the war against terror..my.. suicide attacks everyday? Is human blood so cheap now? Everyday hundreds of innocent civilians die at the hand of US air strikes / drone attacks.. thanks to our Money-worshiping / corrupt government that too is involved in this..

you people have no clue about this coz CNN & BBC don’t show you this..they feed us with what they want us to THINK..
nor do they show you how the so-called biggest democracy happen to have the largest military occupied area in the world.. that would be the region of Kashmir.. poor kashmiris fight for independence.. nah.. they’re terrorists.. kill them all :’(

In the end, my friends.. we’re all humans, inhabitants of this planet..some more in power some less..black/white..rich/poor but we’re all equal- children of Adam & we all have to die one day.. that is the biggest reality.. MY FUTURE…YOUR FUTURE… a 100 years ahead.. we’ll be in our graves.. have we prepared anything for it?
I dont think so, we’re too busy in acquiring the natural resources of this world.. money/women/land.. tsk tsk while none of it shall go with us in our graves..

just think about that..

I think you can make any place you visit a lot of fun as long as you do the research beforehand in order to stay safe…Afghanistan and Iraq may be very dangerous to visit, however they have such history it’s unbelievable!

I think you need to distinguish between “most dangerous places to visit” and “most boring places to visit”.

sure Iraq and Afghanistan may be dangerous but they are nonetheless fascinating places to go to and learn about.

I have been to many places around the world, both “dangerous” and “safe”, but I couldn’t pin point the “worst” place as each country has offered such a different experience it is not really comparable! Think before you write people!

all countries are good for their natives. for those people who were saying india a hell i want to make it clear that either you have not visited to a true india or you do not visited india having an intention to explore. your aim might be to find worse about india. man INDIA the worlds largest democracy in the world you know there is not so much difference between the number of people here and that of china. but the chinese area is many times larger than india. isnt it a country who is serving its natives by giving them a message of peace. you know all powerful countries need to sign for the CTBT. comprehensive test ban treaty. for the reason of peace its the only country who is having all the nuclear powers even by not signing the agreement. do you understand that. now come to education. people here are the largest engineering graduates. around 35 percent in microsoft are indians. “0″ is the indian origination. i cant give all the facts about india in such a smaller note. visit here and ill show you whats real india, youll get a diversified culture, different people, different religions, different lifestyles but having a strong cordiial relation with each other that called india. beggars and patients are a part of struggling india. do you know that india has the ability to solve the problem by peace and thats truth have a look on your own country how many fights? here we havent fought for money we havent looted anyone. we are hard workers. have faith in it. its a secular country. some idiots were saying that india has bad relations with china pakistan. no. india has bad relations with terrorists we welcome pakistan we welcome china. but we are not so much ignaorant that well leave the terrorists as normally. usa the most powerfull country is also affected by terrorism thats the worse side of a country. so for next time when u visit india. make an intention to explore the real india. i am sure you will find your visa fee not going in waste.

Comparison of Indian economy with US, EU, Canada, Japan, China and rest of the world
More over India is growing at the rate of eight to nine percent per annum where as most of the developed countries including US, Canada, Japan and countries of EU and UK are growing at a very slow speed until last year. Only China has shown greater growth rate than India.

In your article said the most bad ten countries warning to visit and I do not know the other nine countries, but I see you have painted a bad image and dark on the Sudan, and this is not true because the Sudan is very safe and his family are very friendly and have a global reputation for hospitality rarely found anywhere in the world, The Dar Four is not a genocide as claimed by this lie and it is more secure than New York itself, we believe that the people of the West, are honest, i hope you are.

LOL this guy, who wrote this article of 10 worst countries.
i can bet my ass off he has never really been to those place first hand and he dared to make those lists.

as for natural disasters, it’s something you can’t rely on.
nobody knows when it will hit and to rate a country the WORST by natural disasters is just utterly completely idiotic.

Bali bombing? yes THE MEDIA.

DID YOU KNOW that the head and the mastermind behind Bali bombings and several bombings that happened in Indonesia was born in Johor, Malaysia.
He is a Malaysian that destroys Indonesia.

If you want to rate the worst country to visit in terms of terrorist attacks, instead of the VICTIM why not rate the MASTERMIND?
by doing that WHY DIDNT YOU RATE USA as the worst country because of terrible 911 incident?

get your fact straight before writing such article in the internet

The worst countries are those who have started wars and provoked other countries. I have been living in Indonesia for over 20 years. It sucks but at least it is not an offender toward other countries. We have never bombed another nation with nuke bombs. We have never disrespected UN by attacking another country without its approval. We have never stolen another country’s natural resources. We have been victims by some radical people who are supported by some foreigners and some stupid local people. But in general, it is just not that bad. This country sucks according to its systems and the people who abuse them and natural disasters. The rest are just nice.

My name is Chad and I own a very LARGE country in Africa. I am white and I love being white. Even though AIDS is very big in our continent I feel that the more you are around it the bigger your immune system gets to it. I’ve noticed that alot of my slaves are Nigers, female Nigers. Their titties tend to get floppy after multiple child births. Not much milk but alot of red sand. I like Afghanistan. She is a very hot crossed eyed child girl I’ve boinked multiple times.

Thailand is one of the worst coutries to visit because of a freak natural disaster that occurred once in a lifetime?

That’s like saying the USA is the worst place in the world to visit because of Hurrican Katrina, or the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989.

What a STUPID DUMB-ASS LIST. Thailand and Indonesia have no place on this list. They do not have excessive dangers that you wouldn’t encounter anywhere else in the world.

To the people of India and Pakistan…..

It’s real shame we people fight so often, despite having the same ancestory and culture. Hardly 64 years of separation has made us this murderous, I don’t see either of us surviving the next 20 years.

There’s no point suggesting each other on this list. Both the nations are equally pathetic and wonderful, if the religious extremism were ignored- which would obviously go against Pakistan.

So, stop all this meaningless fight. We should see both the nations as ONE. Once that sense of viewing things is established, any tensions would automatically cool down.

Allow me to Interrupt the Long Discussion…

It Depends Who M I ..

If I’m an American …all other countries r worst…because only we’ve the right to be alive !!

If I’m a Europian…all countries with black & brown skinned pepole r worst…because we’re the best creature of God…

If I’m an Indian….all muslim countries r worst..& all Indians knows !!

If I’m Pakistani…India is worst..Even I cant say in India that I’m a Pakistani…!!

If I’m from Africa…Even my country is worst..because my family believes that we’re born to die but with slow death….!!!

If I’m from Middle East Muslim country…America & Israel Sucks..

If I’m from a Poor Country …I cant dream to see the Europe..!!

If I’m From south Korea..North Korea is Worst & Vice-Versa…

If I’m a Common man …I regret to be alive…Since I have No country …& no one Likes me…

INDIA
The name of country in which more then 30 nations try and fight for separate states from Hindu dominate India.Every day peoples died by the army or rebells. The peoples are also very poor so all around you see garbage and old tents(India’s 50% population lived under poverty line = UNICEF).

So my advice is, Think 100 times before visit India.

Thanks.

Jan 7th, 2011

It is slightly entertaining listening to everyone’s points of view. And sadly it’s all based on where you, yourself are from or what you were taught growing up. Think of the country that you live in, then think of what you consider the worst country… switch places and consider yourself as being born in the “worst” country and having your country as an “enemy”… my point is that our points of view are all based on how we were raised or where we are from, noone is right… I’m reading some very interesting things on here about my own country and how “terrible” it is. A lot of our decisions are not based from the population, it’s based on our leader and a lot of the time at least 50% of the population doesn’t agree with what our leader agrees on, so it’s not the people in our case, it’s the leader… I’m also reading a lot about my country that is very untrue and I’m assuming that’s because the people writing it are people who have never been here and, like i mentioned previously, are people who have already been taught to hate my country and have false accusations emplanted in their brain. Any idea where I’m from? It’s pretty obvious!

This list is quite ridiculous! I have personally been to Uganda last May and I did not feel the least bit unsafe. The LRA is pretty much inactive and they are not targeting tourists. In fact, I would say it is one of the place you should visit. The people are wonderful! It is one of my most favorite places to go.

Another little tid bit you should be aware of, it that every place in this earth has areas that could be considered unsafe. Would you stop from exploring what is around because there was a tragedy that occurred like in Thailand? I think not. In fact, I would say that due to different tragedies and need these places would attract more people than before. I would stop and think before placing judgment.

Putting Thailand and Indonesia are INSULTS. Thailand is much safer then the rest and although Indonesia has had some problems their are other neighboring countries like Bangladesh and Myanmar that are much more dangerous. I also feel Afghanistan and Somalia should be higher then Iraq considering the present situation. The Palestinian territory should also be separated considering the west bank is considerably safer then the gaza strip!!

Instead of focusing our energy into anger towards other Earthly nations, let us combine our powers as one super planet and conquer the universe. We could start by listing the worst planets in our solar system and hating on those other planets. I\’ll start the list with Jupiter. Why does Jupiter suck? The weather there is terrible and the atmosphere itself is basically uninhabitable. Earth climates are far superior and boasts diversity in weather patterns. Jupiter is just crap air that you can\’t even breath and a huge storm that has been going on for years and years. I would never recommend that hellhole to any Milky Way traveler – even if they were a Klingon. I also hate how fat Jupiter is. It struts around the solar system like it\’s the end-all-be-all monster planet when really it doesn\’t even have a biodiversity to speak of. Earth in comparison is just the right size, with just the right distance from the sun to adequately provide a spectacular habitat for an innumerable number of creatures. Creatures so diverse that even within one species, eg. humans, there are many breeds or races. Each one so beautiful and unique. Each one contributing to the glory that is Earth. What does Jupiter have? Nothing! It\’s lifeless! Thus – hands down – Earth trumps all!

if we will get a disease, no religion can save us,only nature can. of course you can do yoga and exercise. Hinduism doesn’t teach anyone to kill animals(goats etc) to make the “god” ‘happy’.every organism is a part of this GREAT UNIVERSE and we must respect that,because we are HUMANS. ANIMALS KILL AND EAT OTHER ANIMALS because they are animals not humans.as humans,we should not follow a religion which converts us into animals. PERIOD.

India was the best country in the past. that is a fact. India has given so much to the world in every field be it science,mathematics,arts,culture,yoga,ayurveda and the list goes on. i admit that india has not done much in the case of absolutely USELESS innovations,on which the west claims they are the best. for eg, they made engine, due to which the human race in in grave danger due to the increasing pollution. they made industries which pollute our planet.they made tv due to which people are getting obese and getting diseases and getting more and more monotonous, because in their every movie, the characters behave in same manner. they do not know to behave other way, they do not know that there are infinite possibilities in the universe.
they made video games due to which our children are getting retarded(i think most of the youths in US have personality disorder).

due to their disgusting ‘innovations’ , we are getting more and more separated from the nature and wasting our life.we are getting away from the reality.
for me India was,is and will be best. but if you compare a country like Pakistan with US,UK, Europe i think Pakistan is better. at least there people are not fake,robotic,overacting,and boasting about their pathetic ‘innovations’. they are only misguided by their obsolete religion. at least they are living simple lifestyle and not wasting the resources of OUR planet.
even Iraq is better.

look at these pathetic robots, the medical system which they have invented can not even cure a common cold.and they still waste billions in making colleges where the students will study ‘medicine’ and then they will loot money from the patients for giving them useless medicine which can only extend their life a little bit. rather than curing it only makes life worse due to the side effects of their medicine.

see their ‘innovations; it shows their knowledge, it shows their culture, it shows their understanding of life.

India was the best country in the past. that is a fact. India has given so much to the world in every field be it science,mathematics,arts,culture,yoga,ayurveda and the list goes on. i admit that india has not done much in the case of absolutely USELESS innovations,on which the west claims they are the best. for eg, they made engine, due to which the human race in in grave danger due to the increasing pollution. they made industries which pollute our planet.they made tv due to which people are getting obese and getting diseases and getting more and more monotonous, because in their every movie, the characters behave in same manner. they do not know to behave other way, they do not know that there are infinite possibilities in the universe.
they made video games due to which our children are getting retarded(i think most of the youths in US have personality disorder).

due to their disgusting \’innovations\’ , we are getting more and more separated from the nature and wasting our life.we are getting away from the reality.

Nigel, you blame the Yankees huh? (And just so you know and expand your knowledge because you clearly need to, Yankees are those Americans who live ONLY in the North. The term lost its popularity after the American Civil War.)

Anyway back to subject, yes our presence is there and it’s STRONG. If it was not for sure those animals in Iraq and Afghanistan would have long destroyed the world. Having us North Americans in their country is a blessing…they have a sign of humanity in their country. Oh and by the way, what is this with all those people coming from under developed, 3rd world countries that blame everything on the USA? Open your eyes and learn and take for example what is going on in Egypt. Can you blame that on what you called Yankees too? These people are animals as I said before and the highlight of their life is violence.

THE BLOODY PARTITION COULD BE AVOIDED,SO MANY WARS COULD BE AVOIDED,SO MANY TERRORIST ATTACKS COULD BE AVOIDED. SO MUCH MONEY AND TIME WASTED, FOR NOTHING.
ALREADY THE BRITISH LOOTED INDIA,AND THEN INDIA SUFFERED SO MUCH BECAUSE OF THESE RETARDS, END EVEN THEN INDIA HAS PROGRESSED SO MUCH. WHO SAYS INDIA IS NOT THE BEST.

That is exactly my point. These people live for violence. Without violence their life is simply not complete. You states that the USA is corrupting Iran and Afghanistan with their presence and I gave you an example with Egypt.

Peaceful protesters my ass. They lost my respect from the moment they started breaking into museums and breaking the rare artifacts. Now I guess from the Muslim point of view that is peaceful, considering you are attacking inanimate objects.

And oh yes I am from the US and very proud of it. Yes some of us complain about the US but riddle me this. How many US citizens escape and run to another safer country? But for some reason we get thousands of thousands of illegal immigrants in our country. Can you tell me why? Why don’t they run to Iran or Afghanistan?

THE TRUTH HIMSELF

Feb 13th, 2011

ok.
osama attacked US, then why did US attacked Iraq and Afghanistan . why US fought in Vietnam.

and in the American War of Independence, what did the Americans did? is that different from what the Egyptians are doing.

there are both good and bad people in every country,every area and even every family of this world.are there no prisons in America? are there no US citizens in US who hate there own country. i have seen many such people on internet writing negative things about america.

so, there will be such bad people in Egypt ALSO. now Mubarak also opened the prisons and freed all the criminals. then if some bad guys did attacked the museums then that doesn’t mean all the protesters all bad.first see their cause and they had a valid reason to protest.

now, the reason you get illegal immigrant in your country is that because no country is perfect and free of problems.so there are people who do not want to suffer, because they are humans.now these illegal immigrants go to US because in US
they get some work. they get some work in US because there is a VACUUM in US created by the US citizens.
if there will be no work left for the migrants, why they will come to US.the American society is unable to do that work and therefore is creating a vacuum and due to the law of universe, the vacuum tries to fill itself from the surrounding matter.

now you will argue that why they are not going in china, it is because they are able to do their every work. in fact people of china and India are getting sucked in that vacuum in US,UK and Europe.

now, there are sufferers in US also, who are not happy in their country. but why are they not going OUT, is because they can not cope with the demands and cultures of other countries. they also will not be able to snatch jobs from the residents of that country, as they are less able than them in doing that work. so they end up it staying where they are and continue suffering. they can not adapt to other conditions.

but human beings are known to adapt in diverse conditions???

india is not a country, it is a civilization

India never invaded any country in her last 100000 years of history. When many cultures were only nomadic forest dwellers over 5000 years ago, Indians established Harappan culture in Sindhu Valley (Indus Valley Civilization) The name ‘India’ is derived from the River Indus, the valleys around which were the home of the early settlers. The Aryan worshippers referred to the river Indus as the Sindhu. The Persian invaders converted it into Hindu. The name ‘Hindustan’ combines Sindhu and Hindu and thus refers to the land of the Hindus. Chess was invented in India. Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus are studies, which originated in India. The ‘Place Value System’ and the ‘Decimal System’ were developed in India in 100 B.C. The World’s First Granite Temple is the Brihadeswara Temple at Tanjavur, Tamil Nadu. The shikhara of the temple is made from a single 80-tonne piece of granite. This magnificent temple was built in just five years, (between 1004 AD and 1009 AD) during the reign of Rajaraja Chola. India is the largest democracy in the world, the 6th largest Country in the world, and one of the most ancient civilizations. The game of Snakes & Ladders was created by the 13th century poet saint Gyandev. It was originally called ‘Mokshapat’. The ladders in the game represented virtues and the snakes indicated vices. The game was played with cowrie shells and dices. In time, the game underwent several modifications, but its meaning remained the same, i.e. good deeds take people to heaven and evil to a cycle of re-births. The world’s highest cricket ground is in Chail, Himachal Pradesh. Built in 1893 after leveling a hilltop, this cricket pitch is 2444 meters above sea level. India has the largest number of Post Offices in the world. The largest employer in India is the Indian Railways, employing over a million people. The world’s first university was established in Takshila in 700 BC. More than 10,500 students from all over the world studied more than 60 subjects. The University of Nalanda built in the 4th century was one of the greatest achievements of ancient India in the field of education. Ayurveda is the earliest school of medicine known to mankind. The Father of Medicine, Charaka, consolidated Ayurveda 2500 years ago. India was one of the richest countries till the time of British rule in the early 17th Century.

Christopher Columbus, attracted by India’s wealth, had come looking for a sea route to India when he discovered America by mistake. The Art of Navigation & Navigating was born in the river Sindh over 6000 years ago.

The very word Navigation is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘NAVGATIH’. The word navy is also derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Nou’.

Bhaskaracharya rightly calculated the time taken by the earth to orbit the Sun hundreds of years before the astronomer Smart. According to his calculation, the time taken by the Earth to orbit the Sun was 365.258756484 days. The value of “pi” was first calculated by the Indian Mathematician Budhayana, and he explained the concept of what is known as the Pythagorean Theorem. He discovered this in the 6th century, long before the European mathematicians. Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus also originated in India.Quadratic Equations were used by Sridharacharya in the 11th century. The largest numbers the Greeks and the Romans used were 106 whereas Hindus used numbers as big as 10*53 (i.e. 10 to the power of 53) with specific names as early as 5000 B.C.during the Vedic period.Even today, the largest used number is Terra: 10*12(10 to the power of 12). Until 1896, India was the only source of diamonds in the world (Source: Gemological Institute of America). The Baily Bridge is the highest bridge in the world. It is located in the Ladakh valley between the Dras and Suru rivers in the Himalayan mountains. It was built by the Indian Army in August 1982.

Sushruta is regarded as the Father of Surgery. Over2600 years ago Sushrata & his team conducted complicated surgeries like cataract, artificial limbs, cesareans, fractures, urinary stones, plastic surgery and brain surgeries. Usage of anaesthesia was well known in ancient Indian medicine.

Detailed knowledge of anatomy, embryology, digestion, metabolism,physiology, etiology, genetics and immunity is also found in many ancient Indian texts. India exports software to 90 countries.

The four religions born in India – Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism, are followed by 25% of the world’s population. Jainism and Buddhism were founded in India in 600 B.C. and 500 B.C. respectively. Islam is India’s and the world’s second largest religion. There are 300,000 active mosques in India, more than in any other country, including the Muslim world. The oldest European church and synagogue in India are in the city of Cochin. They were built in 1503 and 1568 respectively. Jews and Christians have lived continuously in India since 200 B.C. and 52 A.D. respectively The largest religious building in the world is Angkor Wat, a Hindu Temple in Cambodia built at the end of the 11th century. The Vishnu Temple in the city of Tirupathi built in the 10th century, is the world’s largest religious pilgrimage destination. Larger than either Rome or Mecca, an average of 30,000 visitors donate $6 million (US) to the temple everyday. Sikhism originated in the Holy city of Amritsar in Punjab. Famous for housing the Golden Temple, the city was founded in 1577. Varanasi, also known as Benaras, was called “the Ancient City” when Lord Buddha visited it in 500 B.C., and is the oldest, continuously inhabited city in the world today.

India provides safety for more than 300,000 refugees originally from Sri Lanka, Tibet, Bhutan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, who escaped to flee religious and political persecution. His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, the exiled spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists, runs his government in exile from Dharmashala in northern India. Martial Arts were first created in India, and later spread to Asia by Buddhist missionaries.

Yoga has its origins in India and has existed for over 5,000 years.

Georgia is one of the BEST countries to visit.

Check this information: Top ten countries to visit in 2011.

Georgia is a land filled with magnificent history and unparalleled natural beauty. Archaeologists found the oldest traces of wine production (7000 BC) in Georgia.
Christianity was introduced into Georgia in the first century, and became the official national state religion in the mid fourth century.
For those of us in the West, we unfortunately get precious little exposure to this stretch of land between the Black and Caspian seas.

THE TRUTH HIMSELF

Mar 8th, 2011

I THINK PAKISTAN SHOULD MERGE BACK TO INDIA AS IT HAS BECOME A FAILED STATE AND ALREADY THERE ARE MORE MUSLIM RETARDS IN INDIA THAN IN PAKISTAN.

IF PAKISTAN WANTED TO BECOME A BEGGAR NATION, THEN WHY THEY GOT SEPARATED FROM INDIA,

AND I THINK THAT MUSLIMS SHOULD CONVERT THEM BACK TO HINDUISM AND BUDDHISM.

I think the one who follows Islam is a retard.

Hinduism doesn’t teach anyone to kill animals(goats etc) to make the “god” ‘happy.every organism is a part of this GREAT UNIVERSE and we must respect that,because we are HUMANS. ANIMALS KILL AND EAT OTHER ANIMALS .

IF YOU HAVE TO GIVE SACRIFICE, THEN YOU SHOULD KILL YOURSELF. KILLING OTHER ORGANISMS WITHOUT THEIR WILL, IS MURDER, NOT SACRIFICE.

Islam is really a retard fucking religion.it is non sense, crap,utter junk.

it is scientifically proved known fact that each and every human being has same color of blood, same amount of brain, same heart,same lungs,same kidneys.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS EVERY HUMAN IS SAME. And this thing is taught in Hinduism. That is why Hinduism is THE BEST.
IT IS NOT A RELIGION, IT IS THE TRUTH ITSELF.
THIS IS THE CORE MEANING OF HINDUISM.

NOTHINH IS BIGGER THAN LIFE. NO MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE DONE IN YOUR LIFE , IT WILL BECOME ZERO IN THE END. EVERYTHING WILL BECOME ZERO
Zero is the biggest truth of this universe.

Every thing is zero.
EVEN THE SUN WILL DIE ONE DAY, EARTH WILL DIE ONE DAY.

All other inventions on one side, ZERO ON THE OTHER. Zero wins hands down.

The biggest thing in LIFE is life itself.
If you will do yoga daily , you will not get disease, you will get life .
IT IS SCIENTIFICALLY PROVED AND INTERNATIONALLY ACCEPTED THAT YOGA CAN CURE DISEASES WHICH NO MEDICINE CAN CURE.
FORGET CURING ,YOGA WILL NOT ALLOW DISEASES TO ENTER YOUR BODY.
ALL OTHER MEDICINES ARE USED ONLY WHEN A DISEASE ENTER OUR BODY, BUT ONLY YOGA CAN PREVENT DISEASES FROM ENTERING THE BODY.

India was the best country in the past. that is a fact. India has given so much to the world in every field be it science,mathematics,arts,culture,yoga,ayurveda and the list goes on. i admit that india has not done much in the case of absolutely USELESS innovations,on which the west claims they are the best. for eg, they made engine, due to which the human race in in grave danger due to the increasing pollution. they made industries which pollute our planet.they made tv due to which people are getting obese and getting diseases and getting more and more monotonous, because in their every movie, the characters behave in same manner. they do not know to behave other way, they do not know that there are infinite possibilities in the universe.
they made video games due to which our children are getting retarded(i think most of the youths in US have personality disorder).

due to their disgusting ‘innovations’ , we are getting more and more separated from the nature and wasting our life.we are getting away from the reality.
for me India was,is and will be best. but if you compare a country like Pakistan with US,UK, Europe i think Pakistan is better. at least there people are not fake,robotic,overacting,and boasting about their pathetic ‘innovations’. they are only misguided by their obsolete religion. at least they are living simple lifestyle and not wasting the resources of OUR planet.
even Iraq is better.

look at these pathetic robots, the medical system which they have invented can not even cure a common cold.and they still waste billions in making colleges where the students will study ‘medicine’ and then they will loot money from the patients for giving them useless medicine which can only extend their life a little bit. rather than curing it only makes life worse due to the side effects of their medicine.

see their ‘innovations; it shows their knowledge, it shows their culture, it shows their understanding of life.

India never invaded any country in her last 100000 years of history. When many cultures were only nomadic forest dwellers over 5000 years ago, Indians established Harappan culture in Sindhu Valley (Indus Valley Civilization) The name ‘India’ is derived from the River Indus, the valleys around which were the home of the early settlers. The Aryan worshippers referred to the river Indus as the Sindhu. The Persian invaders converted it into Hindu. The name ‘Hindustan’ combines Sindhu and Hindu and thus refers to the land of the Hindus. Chess was invented in India. Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus are studies, which originated in India. The ‘Place Value System’ and the ‘Decimal System’ were developed in India in 100 B.C. The World’s First Granite Temple is the Brihadeswara Temple at Tanjavur, Tamil Nadu. The shikhara of the temple is made from a single 80-tonne piece of granite. This magnificent temple was built in just five years, (between 1004 AD and 1009 AD) during the reign of Rajaraja Chola. India is the largest democracy in the world, the 6th largest Country in the world, and one of the most ancient civilizations. The game of Snakes & Ladders was created by the 13th century poet saint Gyandev. It was originally called ‘Mokshapat’. The ladders in the game represented virtues and the snakes indicated vices. The game was played with cowrie shells and dices. In time, the game underwent several modifications, but its meaning remained the same, i.e. good deeds take people to heaven and evil to a cycle of re-births. The world’s highest cricket ground is in Chail, Himachal Pradesh. Built in 1893 after leveling a hilltop, this cricket pitch is 2444 meters above sea level. India has the largest number of Post Offices in the world. The largest employer in India is the Indian Railways, employing over a million people. The world’s first university was established in Takshila in 700 BC. More than 10,500 students from all over the world studied more than 60 subjects. The University of Nalanda built in the 4th century was one of the greatest achievements of ancient India in the field of education. Ayurveda is the earliest school of medicine known to mankind. The Father of Medicine, Charaka, consolidated Ayurveda 2500 years ago. India was one of the richest countries till the time of British rule in the early 17th Century.

Christopher Columbus, attracted by India’s wealth, had come looking for a sea route to India when he discovered America by mistake. The Art of Navigation & Navigating was born in the river Sindh over 6000 years ago.

The very word Navigation is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘NAVGATIH’. The word navy is also derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Nou’.

Bhaskaracharya rightly calculated the time taken by the earth to orbit the Sun hundreds of years before the astronomer Smart. According to his calculation, the time taken by the Earth to orbit the Sun was 365.258756484 days. The value of “pi” was first calculated by the Indian Mathematician Budhayana, and he explained the concept of what is known as the Pythagorean Theorem. He discovered this in the 6th century, long before the European mathematicians. Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus also originated in India.Quadratic Equations were used by Sridharacharya in the 11th century. The largest numbers the Greeks and the Romans used were 106 whereas Hindus used numbers as big as 10*53 (i.e. 10 to the power of 53) with specific names as early as 5000 B.C.during the Vedic period.Even today, the largest used number is Terra: 10*12(10 to the power of 12). Until 1896, India was the only source of diamonds in the world (Source: Gemological Institute of America). The Baily Bridge is the highest bridge in the world. It is located in the Ladakh valley between the Dras and Suru rivers in the Himalayan mountains. It was built by the Indian Army in August 1982.

Sushruta is regarded as the Father of Surgery. Over2600 years ago Sushrata & his team conducted complicated surgeries like cataract, artificial limbs, cesareans, fractures, urinary stones, plastic surgery and brain surgeries. Usage of anaesthesia was well known in ancient Indian medicine.

Detailed knowledge of anatomy, embryology, digestion, metabolism,physiology, etiology, genetics and immunity is also found in many ancient Indian texts. India exports software to 90 countries.

The four religions born in India – Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism, are followed by 25% of the world’s population. Jainism and Buddhism were founded in India in 600 B.C. and 500 B.C. respectively. Islam is India’s and the world’s second largest religion. There are 300,000 active mosques in India, more than in any other country, including the Muslim world. The oldest European church and synagogue in India are in the city of Cochin. They were built in 1503 and 1568 respectively. Jews and Christians have lived continuously in India since 200 B.C. and 52 A.D. respectively The largest religious building in the world is Angkor Wat, a Hindu Temple in Cambodia built at the end of the 11th century. The Vishnu Temple in the city of Tirupathi built in the 10th century, is the world’s largest religious pilgrimage destination. Larger than either Rome or Mecca, an average of 30,000 visitors donate $6 million (US) to the temple everyday. Sikhism originated in the Holy city of Amritsar in Punjab. Famous for housing the Golden Temple, the city was founded in 1577. Varanasi, also known as Benaras, was called “the Ancient City” when Lord Buddha visited it in 500 B.C., and is the oldest, continuously inhabited city in the world today.

India provides safety for more than 300,000 refugees originally from Sri Lanka, Tibet, Bhutan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, who escaped to flee religious and political persecution. His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, the exiled spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists, runs his government in exile from Dharmashala in northern India. Martial Arts were first created in India, and later spread to Asia by Buddhist missionaries.

Yoga has its origins in India and has existed for over 5,000 years.

the gretest mind game of CHESS was invented in India…….

JUST GO TO THE LINK AND SEE FOR YOURSELF THAT INDIA IS THE BEST COUNTRY,

AT LEAST BETTER THAN THE JUNK,ROBOTIC COUNTRIES( US,UK,EUROPE ) AND PAKISTAN FOR SURE.
INDIA IS THE BEST. HINDUISM IS THE BEST.

India’s Chandrayaan found water on moon

This discovery, made by the ISRO-ESA instrument, SARA on-board the Indian Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter, confirms how water is likely being created on the lunar surface.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/10/091015091605.htm

India is the pioneer in every big invention and discovery in human history.
every thing in todays world,be it the modern technology,modern gadgets, scientific tools,medical tools,science,mathematics,arts,literature,culture,language,natural herbs,food,clothes,spirituality,IT HAS THE INDIAN CORE.

more than 80 nations in the world are running on indian black money.
if you include that money,india is the richest nation.

UK is rich because it looted India’s wealth and now behaves as if they are very great.

US,which has a population of only 30 crores, is the no. 1 polluter on EARTH.they are destroying our planet.THEY ARE DOING SUICIDE,AND ALSO DRAGGING THE WHOLE WORLD WITH THEM.

all Islamic nations are full of retards,nomads,animals.ESPECIALLY PAKISTAN

so it is easily proved that India is the best.
HINDUISM IS THE BEST CULTURE.IT IS NOT A RELIGION.IT IS THE TRUTH OF LIFE.

I think the list was just the writer’s opinion so we shouldn’t take offence, since we are all entitled to our opinions. I would however like to add my own country to that list. It is crime ridden and is continuously run by corrupt politicians. The defense services and health institutions are in shambles and hard working citizens are terrified of being kidnapped by the criminals who enjoy freedom in a land where the police service fails to protect the people. I hereby nominate Trinidad and Tobago to be on the list.

we have the reason and proof to say that,

Pakistan is more dangerous than Afghanistan. Western single women are raped not only by hoods (the entire nation has been sired by hoods swearing Allah) but also by the police.

Many tourists simply vanish from this country and the Pak authorities would deny the person had ever entered the country.

—— India behind Intel’s fastest server processor——–Intel Xeon E7 that has 10 cores.

(Can you imagine this? 2.9 billion transistors sitting on a single chip that occupies 600 square millimetre of space or a chip that just fits in the palm of your hand.)

The design and the portions of the validation process happened in India.

Led by engineers at Intel Technology India, in Bangalore, Intel has not only successfully managed to do that but has also started shipping the record-breaking microprocessor named Intel Xeon E7 that has 10 cores, delivers 40 per cent greater performance with improved energy efficiency.

Ravishanker Kuppuswamy — described as “the Rockstar” by Tom Kilroy, Intel’s senior VP — an engineering director at Intel and the design manager for Intel’s E7 Xeon microprocessor family, is the man who led the design team that built the Xeon E7.

http://www.rediff.com/getahead/slide-show/slide-show-1-achievers-meet-the-Indians-behind-intels-latest-processor-xeon-e7/20110415.htm

it is a slap on the faces of those who thinks india is not best.

Americans want that they do anything and no one can ask them a reason for that which is totally wrong assumption.By the way America is INSHAALLAH GOING TO finish due to its wrong,injust and one sided policies.

Okay. I must be missing something. I could have sworn it said “The most DANGEROUS countries.” As much as I loathe the United States and can’t wait to get the hell out of here, I can honestly say, it isn’t exactly DANGEROUS. There are areas within any state that can be dangerous, but this can be said for every country on the planet that occupies HUMAN BEINGS. You can find horrible people in every corner of the world….not just the United States.
For any idiot about to try a rebuttal, let’s put this in perspective. If there weren’t assholes in other countries, then there would be such thing as a perfect place…and we all (at least those of us with a modicum of a functioning brain) know that there is…NO SUCH THING.

Just thought I would add a little education to a few people who are causing themselves to come across as completely ignorant.

I have read all these comments and was sick of people talking against pakistan. I am a pakistani and never been to any other country. I am living in pakistan since i was born but no one killed me , you people are talking as if every person is being killed before his natural death. Pakistan is a peaceful country even talibans only fight when they see something happening wrong to them. Recently i met a person with his brother living in thandiyani(small place). He was a german and was living there since 23 years. And was very happy living there In N.W.F.P And was very happy on the good mannered attitude of pathans with them.

ABDULLAH/GUY WHO TRIED TO BE AMERICAN

May 10th, 2011

THIS IS TO ‘’ ABDULLAH’’/”for the user name indian”/’’kidrock32’’/’’ national’’ WHO IS A SINGLE PERSON.

i know I should not waste my time in reading these foolish comments by osama bi laden’s illegal child, but I must tell the truth.

”for the user name indian” HAS WRITTEN THAT HE IS AMERICAN.———————–
” i am american to stupid to be a dentist there now studying in india (dont know about pakistan) know alot of paks in america great people”

IT SEEMS THAT THIS FOOLISH ASSHOLE ,BASTR**D , IS ACTUALLY A BLOODY PAKISTANI, and look at his writing style, he tried very hard to write like an american guy,just look at the language,he tried to sound like an american,

BUT CAN AN AMERICAN SAY THE FOLLOWING

1. ”trust afganistan is heaven compared to india”

2.”indians that are pissed off and want to know why i ended here is from a series of many unfortunate cases i agree im retarted ”

3.”the most ugly people in the univers” HOW DO YOU KNOW, DO YOU KNOW THE WHOLE UNIVERSE????????
THIS SHOWS THE AMOUNT OF BRAIN INSIDE THIS PAKISTANI.

4.”tah mahal is very cool” INSTEAD OF APPRECIATING BEAUTIFUL HILLS AND NATURAL BEAUTY OF INDIA, WILL AN AMERICAN ONLY APPRECIATE A MUSLIM SYMBOL,WHICH WAS BUILT BY HINDU WORKERS????

—————————————————————-

THE FOLLOWING COMMENTS BY THIS RETARD ARE ABSOLUTE LIES AND NONSENSE ————————-

1.”possession of ak47s” INDIA IS NOT AMERICA OR PAKISTAN.

2.” hot shower water when not wanted and cold when not appreciated” NOW IS NATURE GOING TO ADJUST ITS CLIMATE ACCORDING TO THIS BASTAR**D????????????WHO YOU ARE ?GOD??

3.”doesnt matter if they are rich or poor same food only carbs (rice and sambar)” ABSOLUTE NON SENSE.

LOOK WHO IS TALKING ABOUT INDIA, A CHUTIYA PAKISTANI, IN PAKISTAN OSAMA BIN LADEN WAS LIVING FOR 5 YEARS, EVERY DAY US DRONE KILLS THEM, THEY SHOULD REALLY MERGE BACK TO INDIA.NOW STOP BARKING LIKE BLOODY DOGS, AND LOOK WITHIN.

you people keep on eating animal meat, because you are animals.
it is a fact that you can not live for 10 days, if you only eat flesh,this proves that humans are nor carnivorous.
carnivorous animals only eat meat, and they never eat herbs, and they easily survive.they drink water through their tongue , but herbivorous animals suck water through their mouth.

humans cannot survive,if they only eat flesh,they have to eat herbs.they will get nutrition deficiency, and they will die.and they drink water by sucking,so we are herbivorous.

also it is scientifically proved that meat can cause cancer.

but in your obsolete and nonsense religion it is allowed to kill innocent animals like goat,and also distribute its meat.

now where is your god when everyday people get killed in terrorist attacks in pakistan,when people die of diseases,is he watching being a mute spectator,what kind of god is that.

there is a comment ”indians weather rich or poor eat same food”

you must know that both rich and poor have same blood,same mind,same body, they both are human beings, so they will eat same food,WE INDIANS DON’T DIVIDE BETWEEN RICH AND POOR, HUMANS EAT WHAT IS MEANT TO BE EATEN, WHAT NATURE HAS GIVEN US.ANIMALS EAT DIFFERENT FOODS,LIKE SOME EAT INSECTS, RATS,SNAKES

I THINK CHINESE AND PAKISTANI PEOPLE BELONG TO THAT CATEGORY, I WONDER WHEN CHINA WILL ENGULF PAKISTAN, THEN SMALL CHINESE WILL FUCK A RETARD PAKISTANI WITH LONG BEARD AND A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL BREED WILL APPEAR, I THINK ALL THE COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD MUST NUKE THESE TWO COUNTRIES.

PAKIS MARY WITHIN THEIR OWN FAMILY RELATIVES, I THINK IN FUTURE, AS THEY ARE GETTING RETARDED DAY BY DAY, BROTHER WILL MARY THEIR SISTERS.SO SHAMEFUL.

WHY ARE THERE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES ON EARTH, WHY?????? TO SHIT ON THEM??????? NO. THEY ARE MADE BY NATURE TO BE EATEN, AND THE ONE WHO HAS BRAIN ,LIKE HUMANS, WILL EAT THEM,AS THEY ARE NUTRITIOUS AND HAVE ALL KINDS OF TASTES.

WHEN A HUMAN SPITS , A HEN EATS THIS STUFF AND ALL KIND OF BAD STUFF, AND THESE RETARDS EAT ITS EGGS, AND HEN ITSELF,THEY EAT ITS BLOOD,FLESH, THEY ARE DEMONS.

and if you are talking about indian food,THEN YOU MUST KNOW THAT WE ARE WITH NATURE,AND WE EAT NATURAL FOOD, IF YOU ARE MALIGNING INDIAN FOOD, THEN YOU ARE MALIGNING NATURE,MOTHER EARTH ,WHO HAS CREATED LIFE.

India and Pakistan are the same people they just made a border. I heard because they were bored. They claim that they hate eachother but really they hate themselves, this is probably the reason for hygiene issues

Been to india and 50 others countries 1. place to visit is india though. you will go back home and appreciate your life

Accept it or not, Pakistan is most important country in world’s war against terror? Many of Al-Qaida’s most wanted militants were caught in Pakistan by Pakistani authorities.List includes Khalid Shaikh Mohammed,Abu Zubaydah,Ramzi Binalshibh and many others.Pakistani intelligence ISI has been controlling and manipulating Taliban government during post Russia era in Afghanistan. ISI can play very important role is settling Afghanistan issue.

Pakistan is the 7th nuclear weapon state and nuclear power of the world. Stable Pakistan is in everyone’s benefit. Lately there have been many wohoos about safety of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons. World fears that terrorist from Taliban group and AL-Qaida can take over nuclear weapons which may be end of the world.

Pakistan Can Act as A Bridge Between Muslims and Non-Muslims

Unfortunately after 9/11 world has been divided into two, Muslims and non-Muslims. Non-Muslims see Muslims as hard liner always ready to kill and Muslims see non-Muslims as people responsible for killings of millions of innocent Muslims in Iraq,Palestine and Afghanistan.

I think this is high time to show Muslims that whatever image do they have is not correct and playing an important role in relief efforts can be the key.

THEN WHY OSAMA BIN LADEN, YOUR NEW GOD, WAS LIVING FOR 5 YEARS IN PAKISTAN???????

IT IS US WHICH IS GIVING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS AS AID TO THIS BEGGAR AND SHAMELESS COUNTRY,PAKISTAN,OTHERWISE THEY CAN’T EVEN FIGHT WITH 3RD GRADE CRIMINALS ON THEIR OWN.

Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani WAS A BLOODY CRIMINAL, THERE WAS MANY CRIMINAL CASES AGAINST HIM, WHICH WERE DROPPED ,BEFORE HE BECAME PRIME MINISTER.

THEY ALWAYS BEG FROM CHIUNA AND US, THEY CAN’T DO ANYTHING ON THEIR OWN,

ON THE OTHER HAND, MORE THAN 70 NATIONS OF THE WORLD RUN FROM INDIAN BLACK MONEY.INDIA HAS LESS DEBT, THAN US,UK,EOROPE.

IF YOU INCLUDE THE BLACK MONEY IN INDIAN ECONOMY, INDIA IS 4 TIMES RICHER THAN US,
IN THE PAST ALSO INDIA WAS RICHEST NATION.
PAKISTAN NOW SHOULD MERGE BACK TO INDIA,it was created for muslims,but already india has more muslims than pakistan,and living better lives here. also indian and pakistani muslims have hindu blood,as they were hindus in the past and converted to islam by using force.
it is high time you convert back to Hinduism,and reunite with your motherland India.

SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC/UNION OF INDIA

Abdullah

Jun 6th, 2011

what do you mean by that.

hypocrisyhater

Jun 7th, 2011

Ok Let me tell you what SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OR UNION OF INDIA means.

Secular means we don’t have a State Religion and therefore freedom and equality of religion is guaranteed in India. Be it Chrisitan, Hindu, Muslim, Jain, Parsee, Sikh, Buddhist, Judaism etc.

Democratic means that the People of the Nation decide who gets power. Elections are free and fair and election mandates are almost always upheld. The army has never had to step in to sort things out.

Republic means that there is no Monarchy or King or one class that can hold power, any Indian Man or Woman can hold the office of Prime Minister. Political power therefore is in the hands of the people and no single individual or family has a right to hold power, it is a privilege granted by the electorate. This electorate form our Union of 31 states and Union territories.

Abdullah

Jun 8th, 2011

oh yeah Islamic Republic of Pakistan even has some of the same religions.

Infact its about all the nations and every person in the world. I am a pakistani muslim and i admit here that we are not moving to the right direction. we have lost our path that could led us to peace and prosperity. we were not terrorists but now we are. if i speak the language of nation, we hate terrorism. just a few percentage of people have ruined our image before the world. if a nation wants a happy prosperous future, friendship and mutual understanding is the only way. i pray for every person in the world (any religion) that God grant happiness to him and safe future for his children. i also pray love to see everyone equal by economy and health resources. God help us all – Thaks

In early 80s, the Marine Archaeology Unit of the National Institute of Oceanography started offshore exploration and excavation of the legendary city of Dwarka in the coastal waters of Dwarka in Gujarat under Dr S. R. Rao. Since then, they were able to discover may artifacts, stone anchors, etc. at the site.

Unlike Atlantis, Dwarka is for real. Legend has it that Dwarka was built by Vishwakarma by reclaiming land from the sea, on request of Sri Krishna. After his death, 36 years after the end of Mahabharata War (5561BC), the city was taken back by the sea in a single day and night.

According to Graham Hancock

The remains of what has been described as a huge lost city may force historians and archaeologists to radically reconsider their view of ancient human history. Marine scientists say archaeological remains discovered 36 meters (120 feet) underwater in the Gulf of Cambay off the western coast of India could be over 9,000 years old. The vast city – which is five miles long and two miles wide – is believed to predate the oldest known remains in the subcontinent by more than 5,000 years.

Last ice age was roughly 20,000 years ago. The last ice age did not mean the entire planet was frozen. During that period the ice caps were much larger with a very large percentage of Earths water frozen on land over most of the northern hemisphere. The world’s sea level was about 130 m (426.51 ft.) lower than today, which meant the coast lines were extended much further out then they are now. Check the below link for the Google map’s satellite image. The light blue color near the coastal lines represents the shallow sea shores. 20,000 years ago whole of this would have been land. Map of India would not have been much different then what it is today, only a little fatter. The red line on the map (below link) represents the shore boundary 20000 before present.

So this takes back the known date of ”Urban” Indian civilization by few more thousand years, probably to 10000 years.

but many scientists believe that actual Indian civilization is much older.as we know, Vedas were first written in 23000 BC,the civilization could be much older than that.

Ok this is too much, Abdullah you are an 8 year old? Beta, please go out and play cricket or something, you shouldn’t be here on the internet with the adults ok.

To the rest, I say just because a country sucks and isn’t first world doesn’t make the people in them sub-human or inferior. Yes there are places on the planet where people have to live through unspeakable horrors, like in Somalia, Sudan, Congo DR, Haiti, North Korea, Burma and many many others the world over. But what right do we have to criticize the citizens of those countries for the deplorable state of their Nation? Do you think its the common mans fault? Of course not, all of these nations are in detestable condition because of the people who hold political and military power there.

My countries state is not the best either though we’re far better off than the above mentioned Nations, I’m an Indian and I say that countries who are in better conditions like the developed and leading nations of Asia, the EU, the US and Canada, Australia and NZ and the leading nations of the South America should band together to help these nations where innocent people are living and dying everyday. The US has liberated the Iraqis, Afghans and now the Libyans from oppressive regimes in a step to making those nations better. I’m not saying that military action is the only way, but we can be more accepting of refugees, more willing to give to charities especially towards children’s relief and most importantly having a better all-round attitude.

So please all, don’t sit in your air conditioned bedroom in your palatial mansion somewhere, with your iphone in one hand and your satellite TV remote in the other, with the latest laptop or ipad in your lap shaking your head thinking to yourself ‘those guys deserve it.’

Maya Civilization of Mexico. Baffling Links with Ancient India

The archaeological remains of ancient Maya civilization of Mexico are lying scattered in the parts of Yucatan, Campeche, Tabasco and eastern half of Chiapas as well as in the territory of Quintana Roo of the republic of Mexico. Covering an area of about 125,000 square miles, its traces are to be found in the western section of Honduras Republic, Peten and adjacent highlands of Guatemala and practically in the whole of Honduras.

Admiral Christopher Columbus mistakenly called the New World
inhabitants as Indians. Although he corrected himself subsequently, the natives of Americas continued to be called ‘Indians’. During the course of his third journey, Columbus came into contact with ‘Maya’ people.

Many theories have been advanced by scholars to explain the origins of these American Indians and if there were any links between the ancient civilizations of the Old World and the New World. There are historians who believe that the American civilizations were purely native in origin and also those who maintain
the theory of Asians crossing over through Bering Strait via Alaska and reaching the American continent some 12,000 – 15,000 years ago. However, the antiquity of American Indians remains shrouded in the veil of mystery. In spite of a great deal of investigations, explorations and deep study by scholars and innumerable historians during the last many centuries, what we know about pre-Columbus Americas is very little in comparison to what we do not know. To quote Glyn Daniel from his book ‘The First Civilizations’, “within 15 years, between 1519 to 1533, the Western world discovered and brutally destroyed three civilizations – the
Aztecs of Mexico, Maya of Yuacatan and Guatemala and Inca of Peru.”

The unique elaboration of the Mayan civilization has been a challenge to the imagination of explorers and students of history. The Mayans had attained the highest maturity in art, craft, sculpture and hieroglyphs. Innumerable theories exist about these ancient people. Their magnificent achievements in social, economic, political and religious fields, their calendar and hieroglyphic
writings, reasons of the sudden collapse of their classic culture everywhere in Mesoamerica, the reality of ‘Kulkulkan Quetzal-Coatl’ myth are some of the riddles of Mexican history challenging modern research. The ‘Maya’ Indians spent thousands of years in building their magnificent monuments and Mayapan, Palenque, Copan, Tikal, Kaminalijuyu and Piedras Negras were the centres where Mayan culture flourished in splendour. How and why these places were deserted in the past is still a mystery. Although modern scientists have achieved significant success in deciphering Maya calendar system, none has been able to decipher their
hieroglyphic system of writing.

The possibility of links of these people with Old World civilizations and particularly with ancient India is not acceptable to many historians. However, there are those who hold a different view. Eminent scholar-writers like Mackenzie, Hewitt, Tod, Pococke and Mrs. Nuttal have collected plenty of data to show that ancient American civilizations were influenced by Old World civilizations. We have
to remember that the post-Columbus history of America for 300 years was the story of ruthless destruction and fanatics like Bishop Diego da Landa burnt a huge
bonfire of valuable documents and nothing but the three codices of ‘Chilam Balam’
could survive the holocaust.

There are two specific archaeological discoveries pertaining to 761 AD, about which
most Mexican historians are silent, that attract our attention as possible links of Maya civilization to ancient India. The first one is a wall panel (Panel No. 3 of Temple 0-13, at Piedras Negras, Guatemala; reproduced as Plate 69, page 343 of ‘The Ancient Maya’ by S.G. Morley) belonging to the Later Classic Stage of Mexican history, associated with the peaking of Maya architecture and sculpture. Mexican
historians have not given any interpretation of this panel. It appears that the scene depicted in the panel relates to the great Indian epic ‘Ramayana’. It shows a king sitting on the throne and one maidservant with two children standing on the right side of the throne. A guard stands behind the three. On the other side of the king,
three important personages are standing whereas the vassal chiefs and important feudatories are sitting in front of the throne. The king on the throne is believed to be Suryavanshi Ram with his three illustrious brothers standing by his side. The two little children are his two sons with a maid and a guard behind them. Amongst the three persons on the right, two are engaged in a discussion whereas the
third one, apparently Lakshman, is standing with a bold, brave and confident demeanour which was characteristic of him. The above panel is a beautiful piece of sculpture and an evidence of great Mayan heritage, their artistic taste and superior creative ability and, above all, an archaeological evidence to prove India’s link with Mexico in the 8th century at least.

The artistic design and postures of the figures carved can be compared to those found at Ajanta and Ellora caves in India. This interpretation, however, remains only a plausible one till the hieroglyphics and frescoes surrounding the wall panel are deciphered.

Another archaeological discovery at the same place i.e. Piedras Negras, Guatemala, is a stone stela (No. 12, Plate No. 18, page 61 of ‘The Ancient Maya’ by S.G. Morley). A mythological scene has been carved in this stela, depicting the architectural and artistic maturity of the Maya people of the Classic Stage (594 – 889 AD).

There is a beautiful image of a deity with eight hands (ashtabhuja). The art style is discernibly Indian as in no other religion of the world deities of this type were worshipped. It may be mentioned that the ruling dynasty of Mexico at the time of the conquest by Spaniards was ‘Aztec’ or Ashtak (Eight). The evidence in the form of such images leaves little doubt about the presence of Indian culture amongst the ancient Mexicans. The stela pertains to the period of more than eight centuries before Columbus set foot on the soil of the so-called New World.

The place where these pieces have been discovered – Piedras Negras – appears to
be a distorted form of ‘Priyadarsh Nagraj’ in Sanskrit, as has been the case with so
many words distorted by European pronunciation.

These stone sculptures are adornments of a Mayan temple and depict some popular mythology prevalent amongst the people of the time. Both human sacrifice
and idolatry were much in practice amongst Maya people. Morley has given a
detailed and vivid account of Maya culture and society in his book ‘The Ancient
Maya’, profusely quoting Bishop Diego de Landa.

Bishop Landa states that Maya people “…had a very great number of idols and
temples which were magnificent in their own fashion and besides the community
temples, the lords, priests and leading men also had oratories and idols in their houses where they made their prayers and offerings in private”. Not only of gods but idols of even animals and insects were prepared by Maya people, who believed in immortality of soul and afterlife. This definitely smacks of an Indian connection.

More serious efforts to connect the ancient American civilizations with those of ancient India have to be made. The Trans-Pacific contacts of the people of south-east Asia with the people of ancient America have been established beyond doubt. It is also a well-proven fact of history that Indians of ancient times were great sea-farers. In pre-Mahabharata era as well as in the subsequent period,
the kings of southern India possessed large fleets used for trade with the Arabian and European countries where Indian merchandise was much in demand. India’s links with south-east Asia and other far-off islands of the Pacific Ocean are an established fact of history. The conquest of Malaya by Rajendra Chola, the story of
Buddhagupta the Great Sailor (Mahanavik), the religious expeditions of Indians to preach the gospel of Buddhism in the distant lands of Cambodia, Annam, Bali, Java, Sumatra, Borneo, Japan, Korea, Mongolia and China are proofs of the impact
of Indian culture.

A remarkable feature of the Indian culture has been that colonial domination was never identified with economic exploitation. The Buddhist Jatakas (folk tales) narrate many stories relating to maritime adventures and daring sea journeys which establish that such activities were an essential part of Indian life at that time.

Hi you guys, Im not anti-american or anti-jewish, I’m just anti-zionist. I think that the media portrays a lot of muslim countries negatively, if all the the killings and murders happening in detroit were on the news everyday and gang-warfare then I can guarantee that most people wouldn’t think of America as the perfect country. I have been to pakistan about 5 times, its a wonderful place with very welcoming people but they are in a really bad situation, i see people sleeping outside on the streets kids begging for food, the country needs a real government and the fact that their government is so corrupt is not helping. Of course the American government is benefitting from this, by saying this i don’t mean to call any americans out of their names, i have a lot of american friends and they are very nice people i just don’t think you can judge people based on the country they live in, their religion and such. Instead of sitting here and talking about how bad pakistan is we should be doing to help the innocent people there. I urge everyone who reads this to look up the reality of the palestine and israel issue it is terrifying. I am not against jews as a muslim I have a very close jewish friend so I have nothing against them but i am very much against the zionists who are killing and murdering innocent palestinians just research zionism for itself and you will learn the truth.
please don’t believe the media, CNN and CBS these are all forms of manipulations the media is all owned my the zionism in fact the zionist control the US government even Obama, if you don’t believe me or disagree with me thats okay, i respect your opinion but please try to research this so that you can be sure on whether on not this is true.
please look up how the media lies and zionism
you guys might be surprised and this is for your own good
we are all humans, and we aren’t perfect but if we were in a terrible situation we would only want someone to help us and thats all i want to do
anyways have great day peoples :)

I think Pakistan is one of the worst nations in the world, there are no tourists visiting Pakistan only few diplomats and Journos; above all, all foreigners are kept in fortresses (or in layman terms Military controlled Hotels); this is due to rampant Islamic terrorism and Criminalization of entire Pakistani citizenry, instigated and installed by the state authorities at a very young age inside their citizens, as a “systemic process: which is typically found in security states, living in constant “state of paranoia” and complexities ranging from inferiority, “Xenophobia”, illogical threat perception, downtrodden economic situation, total failure of governance and state machinery .

I know the situation of Pakistan, because I cover Pakistan as a Journalist, I don’t see any women on the streets (of-course with some Burqa clad tent houses moving around).

The “Decapitation” of “Danial Pearl” an American journalist of Jewish origin is one of the examples of how “Dangerous” Pakistan is and no doubt it is ranked amongst the most Dangerous places on the planet, due to ongoing perpetual Civil wars at many fronts in Pakistan.

Criminal and “Beggar Gangs” run amok on the filthy streets of Karachi, Quetta, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Sialkot, Gujrawala, Sargodha et al cities of Pakistan; with Islamic terrorists hitting you at will at any place of their choice, many Hotels (with foreigners) have been Bombed (Killed) by crazy Pakistanis in attacks such as “Bombing of Marriott Hotel”, and other incidents of decapitations and target killings.

All the countries of the world have given Red Notice to its travelers about Pakistan due to savagery, barbarism and islamic terrorism in Pakistan and Pakistani society. Hardly anyone visits Pakistan due to suffocating environment and ultra-orthodox bent of life being emulated from 7th Century Bedouin Arabia (per-say trying to become like Arabs in all the wrong ways), with no Human rights, Women Rights, Minority Rights or rule of law in the pretext of following medieval Islamic shariah law (especially, in Pakhtoonkhwa and FATA regions). Period.

On the other hand Millions of Tourists visit Thailand, Europe, Egypt, UK, France, Indonesia, India, Philippines, Ireland, China, Japan, Cambodia, Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka etc, But hardly any tourist visit Ivory Cost, East Timor, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Liberia, Eritrea….However, Egypt, Thailand, India, Indonesia, China, Cambodia, Philippines are the most hospitable places for Foreigners (I have seen thousands of westerners making these countries their permanent homes except in the case of Cambodia, due to language barriers, but soon westerners will make Cambodia their home as its gorgeous and warmhearted), these nations are liberal in the outlook, broad-minded, educated (improving their tally), ancient in culture with different beautiful beliefs, beautiful people, excellent FOOD, beautiful beaches, Mountains, Rivers, Wild Life, Temples, EXOTIC Women (lol); of-course while travelling you have to be careful of the cons as they are to be found everywhere in the world (even at a place as good as Finland), but unlike Somalia, Sierra Leone, Pakistan, Sudan & Taliban Badlands you will not be attacked just because u r a Foreigner or a Non-Muslim or to put into perspective, the criminal society would require handsome ransom from your kidnapping (if not payed be prepared to lose the “pumpkin” on your shoulder) .

These were my thoughts based on my extensive “travel” to almost all the continents and major countries, meanwhile conducting extensive research firsthand. No disrespect to any country but, I have just stated facts as a stern warning to unsuspecting travelers to avoid lands under perpetual disturbance due to criminal and terrorist activities.

Ciao!! And happy Travelling!!

Friends,
If any country is unsafe its not entirely the fault of the Government or administration there, people too are largely responsible as we are scared against anti-social elements and terrorists and give up easily. Forget this, in any part of the world if 10 people are hitting one person a crowd gathers but nobody will save that one person, people will just watch. No country is bad. God has made every country special and beautiful. Also, I would like to mention that many people have expressed negatively about their neighbouring countries while praising their own. Well, before pointing fingers to others its better to watch where your country is going wrong? I feel any country should not interfere in the administration of another country. I also agree with some persons who have posted their comments regarding media being responsible for spoiling relationships between two countries. No country is perfect, we have to make it perfect by getting rid of corrupt politicians, corrupt cops and corrupt system. My dream is to visit and experience the hospitality and beauty of every country before I die. God please make it happen… As an indian, I wish peace be with you…

A history of Zero

Ancient Indian Mathematics

One of the commonest questions which the readers of this archive ask is: Who discovered zero? Why then have we not written an article on zero as one of the first in the archive? The reason is basically because of the difficulty of answering the question in a satisfactory form. If someone had come up with the concept of zero which everyone then saw as a brilliant innovation to enter mathematics from that time on, the question would have a satisfactory answer even if we did not know which genius invented it. The historical record, however, shows quite a different path towards the concept. Zero makes shadowy appearances only to vanish again almost as if mathematicians were searching for it yet did not recognise its fundamental significance even when they saw it.

The first thing to say about zero is that there are two uses of zero which are both extremely important but are somewhat different. One use is as an empty place indicator in our place-value number system. Hence in a number like 2106 the zero is used so that the positions of the 2 and 1 are correct. Clearly 216 means something quite different. The second use of zero is as a number itself in the form we use it as 0. There are also different aspects of zero within these two uses, namely the concept, the notation, and the name. (Our name “zero” derives ultimately from the Arabic sifr which also gives us the word “cipher”.)

Neither of the above uses has an easily described history. It just did not happen that someone invented the ideas, and then everyone started to use them. Also it is fair to say that the number zero is far from an intuitive concept. Mathematical problems started as ‘real’ problems rather than abstract problems. Numbers in early historical times were thought of much more concretely than the abstract concepts which are our numbers today. There are giant mental leaps from 5 horses to 5 “things” and then to the abstract idea of “five”. If ancient peoples solved a problem about how many horses a farmer needed then the problem was not going to have 0 or -23 as an answer.

One might think that once a place-value number system came into existence then the 0 as an empty place indicator is a necessary idea, yet the Babylonians had a place-value number system without this feature for over 1000 years. Moreover there is absolutely no evidence that the Babylonians felt that there was any problem with the ambiguity which existed. Remarkably, original texts survive from the era of Babylonian mathematics. The Babylonians wrote on tablets of unbaked clay, using cuneiform writing. The symbols were pressed into soft clay tablets with the slanted edge of a stylus and so had a wedge-shaped appearance (and hence the name cuneiform). Many tablets from around 1700 BC survive and we can read the original texts. Of course their notation for numbers was quite different from ours (and not based on 10 but on 60) but to translate into our notation they would not distinguish between 2106 and 216 (the context would have to show which was intended). It was not until around 400 BC that the Babylonians put two wedge symbols into the place where we would put zero to indicate which was meant, 216 or 21 ” 6.

The two wedges were not the only notation used, however, and on a tablet found at Kish, an ancient Mesopotamian city located east of Babylon in what is today south-central Iraq, a different notation is used. This tablet, thought to date from around 700 BC, uses three hooks to denote an empty place in the positional notation. Other tablets dated from around the same time use a single hook for an empty place. There is one common feature to this use of different marks to denote an empty position. This is the fact that it never occured at the end of the digits but always between two digits. So although we find 21 ” 6 we never find 216 ”. One has to assume that the older feeling that the context was sufficient to indicate which was intended still applied in these cases.

If this reference to context appears silly then it is worth noting that we still use context to interpret numbers today. If I take a bus to a nearby town and ask what the fare is then I know that the answer “It’s three fifty” means three pounds fifty pence. Yet if the same answer is given to the question about the cost of a flight from Edinburgh to New York then I know that three hundred and fifty pounds is what is intended.

We can see from this that the early use of zero to denote an empty place is not really the use of zero as a number at all, merely the use of some type of punctuation mark so that the numbers had the correct interpretation.

Now the ancient Greeks began their contributions to mathematics around the time that zero as an empty place indicator was coming into use in Babylonian mathematics. The Greeks however did not adopt a positional number system. It is worth thinking just how significant this fact is. How could the brilliant mathematical advances of the Greeks not see them adopt a number system with all the advantages that the Babylonian place-value system possessed? The real answer to this question is more subtle than the simple answer that we are about to give, but basically the Greek mathematical achievements were based on geometry. Although Euclid’s Elements contains a book on number theory, it is based on geometry. In other words Greek mathematicians did not need to name their numbers since they worked with numbers as lengths of lines. Numbers which required to be named for records were used by merchants, not mathematicians, and hence no clever notation was needed.

Now there were exceptions to what we have just stated. The exceptions were the mathematicians who were involved in recording astronomical data. Here we find the first use of the symbol which we recognise today as the notation for zero, for Greek astronomers began to use the symbol O. There are many theories why this particular notation was used. Some historians favour the explanation that it is omicron, the first letter of the Greek word for nothing namely “ouden”. Neugebauer, however, dismisses this explanation since the Greeks already used omicron as a number – it represented 70 (the Greek number system was based on their alphabet). Other explanations offered include the fact that it stands for “obol”, a coin of almost no value, and that it arises when counters were used for counting on a sand board. The suggestion here is that when a counter was removed to leave an empty column it left a depression in the sand which looked like O.

Ptolemy in the Almagest written around 130 AD uses the Babylonian sexagesimal system together with the empty place holder O. By this time Ptolemy is using the symbol both between digits and at the end of a number and one might be tempted to believe that at least zero as an empty place holder had firmly arrived. This, however, is far from what happened. Only a few exceptional astronomers used the notation and it would fall out of use several more times before finally establishing itself. The idea of the zero place (certainly not thought of as a number by Ptolemy who still considered it as a sort of punctuation mark) makes its next appearance in Indian mathematics.

The scene now moves to India where it is fair to say the numerals and number system was born which have evolved into the highly sophisticated ones we use today. Of course that is not to say that the Indian system did not owe something to earlier systems and many historians of mathematics believe that the Indian use of zero evolved from its use by Greek astronomers. As well as some historians who seem to want to play down the contribution of the Indians in a most unreasonable way, there are also those who make claims about the Indian invention of zero which seem to go far too far. For example Mukherjee in [6] claims:-

… the mathematical conception of zero … was also present in the spiritual form from 17 000 years back in India.

What is certain is that by around 650AD the use of zero as a number came into Indian mathematics. The Indians also used a place-value system and zero was used to denote an empty place. In fact there is evidence of an empty place holder in positional numbers from as early as 200AD in India but some historians dismiss these as later forgeries. Let us examine this latter use first since it continues the development described above.

In around 500AD Aryabhata devised a number system which has no zero yet was a positional system. He used the word “kha” for position and it would be used later as the name for zero. There is evidence that a dot had been used in earlier Indian manuscripts to denote an empty place in positional notation. It is interesting that the same documents sometimes also used a dot to denote an unknown where we might use x. Later Indian mathematicians had names for zero in positional numbers yet had no symbol for it. The first record of the Indian use of zero which is dated and agreed by all to be genuine was written in 876.

We have an inscription on a stone tablet which contains a date which translates to 876. The inscription concerns the town of Gwalior, 400 km south of Delhi, where they planted a garden 187 by 270 hastas which would produce enough flowers to allow 50 garlands per day to be given to the local temple. Both of the numbers 270 and 50 are denoted almost as they appear today although the 0 is smaller and slightly raised.

We now come to considering the first appearance of zero as a number. Let us first note that it is not in any sense a natural candidate for a number. From early times numbers are words which refer to collections of objects. Certainly the idea of number became more and more abstract and this abstraction then makes possible the consideration of zero and negative numbers which do not arise as properties of collections of objects. Of course the problem which arises when one tries to consider zero and negatives as numbers is how they interact in regard to the operations of arithmetic, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In three important books the Indian mathematicians Brahmagupta, Mahavira and Bhaskara tried to answer these questions.

Brahmagupta attempted to give the rules for arithmetic involving zero and negative numbers in the seventh century. He explained that given a number then if you subtract it from itself you obtain zero. He gave the following rules for addition which involve zero:-

The sum of zero and a negative number is negative, the sum of a positive number and zero is positive, the sum of zero and zero is zero.

Subtraction is a little harder:-

A negative number subtracted from zero is positive, a positive number subtracted from zero is negative, zero subtracted from a negative number is negative, zero subtracted from a positive number is positive, zero subtracted from zero is zero.

Brahmagupta then says that any number when multiplied by zero is zero but struggles when it comes to division:-

A positive or negative number when divided by zero is a fraction with the zero as denominator. Zero divided by a negative or positive number is either zero or is expressed as a fraction with zero as numerator and the finite quantity as denominator. Zero divided by zero is zero.

Really Brahmagupta is saying very little when he suggests that n divided by zero is n/0. Clearly he is struggling here. He is certainly wrong when he then claims that zero divided by zero is zero. However it is a brilliant attempt from the first person that we know who tried to extend arithmetic to negative numbers and zero.

In 830, around 200 years after Brahmagupta wrote his masterpiece, Mahavira wrote Ganita Sara Samgraha which was designed as an updating of Brahmagupta’s book. He correctly states that:-

… a number multiplied by zero is zero, and a number remains the same when zero is subtracted from it.

However his attempts to improve on Brahmagupta’s statements on dividing by zero seem to lead him into error. He writes:-

A number remains unchanged when divided by zero.

Since this is clearly incorrect my use of the words “seem to lead him into error” might be seen as confusing. The reason for this phrase is that some commentators on Mahavira have tried to find excuses for his incorrect statement.

Bhaskara wrote over 500 years after Brahmagupta. Despite the passage of time he is still struggling to explain division by zero. He writes:-

A quantity divided by zero becomes a fraction the denominator of which is zero. This fraction is termed an infinite quantity. In this quantity consisting of that which has zero for its divisor, there is no alteration, though many may be inserted or extracted; as no change takes place in the infinite and immutable God when worlds are created or destroyed, though numerous orders of beings are absorbed or put forth.

So Bhaskara tried to solve the problem by writing n/0 = ∞. At first sight we might be tempted to believe that Bhaskara has it correct, but of course he does not. If this were true then 0 times ∞ must be equal to every number n, so all numbers are equal. The Indian mathematicians could not bring themselves to the point of admitting that one could not divide by zero. Bhaskara did correctly state other properties of zero, however, such as 02 = 0, and √0 = 0.

Perhaps we should note at this point that there was another civilisation which developed a place-value number system with a zero. This was the Maya people who lived in central America, occupying the area which today is southern Mexico, Guatemala, and northern Belize. This was an old civilisation but flourished particularly between 250 and 900. We know that by 665 they used a place-value number system to base 20 with a symbol for zero. However their use of zero goes back further than this and was in use before they introduced the place-valued number system. This is a remarkable achievement but sadly did not influence other peoples.

You can see a separate article about Mayan mathematics.

The brilliant work of the Indian mathematicians was transmitted to the Islamic and Arabic mathematicians further west. It came at an early stage for al-Khwarizmi wrote Al’Khwarizmi on the Hindu Art of Reckoning which describes the Indian place-value system of numerals based on 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 0. This work was the first in what is now Iraq to use zero as a place holder in positional base notation. Ibn Ezra, in the 12th century, wrote three treatises on numbers which helped to bring the Indian symbols and ideas of decimal fractions to the attention of some of the learned people in Europe. The Book of the Number describes the decimal system for integers with place values from left to right. In this work ibn Ezra uses zero which he calls galgal (meaning wheel or circle). Slightly later in the 12th century al-Samawal was writing:-

If we subtract a positive number from zero the same negative number remains. … if we subtract a negative number from zero the same positive number remains.

The Indian ideas spread east to China as well as west to the Islamic countries. In 1247 the Chinese mathematician Ch’in Chiu-Shao wrote Mathematical treatise in nine sections which uses the symbol O for zero. A little later, in 1303, Zhu Shijie wrote Jade mirror of the four elements which again uses the symbol O for zero.

Fibonacci was one of the main people to bring these new ideas about the number system to Europe. As the authors of [12] write:-

An important link between the Hindu-Arabic number system and the European mathematics is the Italian mathematician Fibonacci.

In Liber Abaci he described the nine Indian symbols together with the sign 0 for Europeans in around 1200 but it was not widely used for a long time after that. It is significant that Fibonacci is not bold enough to treat 0 in the same way as the other numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 since he speaks of the “sign” zero while the other symbols he speaks of as numbers. Although clearly bringing the Indian numerals to Europe was of major importance we can see that in his treatment of zero he did not reach the sophistication of the Indians Brahmagupta, Mahavira and Bhaskara nor of the Arabic and Islamic mathematicians such as al-Samawal.

One might have thought that the progress of the number systems in general, and zero in particular, would have been steady from this time on. However, this was far from the case. Cardan solved cubic and quartic equations without using zero. He would have found his work in the 1500’s so much easier if he had had a zero but it was not part of his mathematics. By the 1600’s zero began to come into widespread use but still only after encountering a lot of resistance.

Of course there are still signs of the problems caused by zero. Recently many people throughout the world celebrated the new millennium on 1 January 2000. Of course they celebrated the passing of only 1999 years since when the calendar was set up no year zero was specified. Although one might forgive the original error, it is a little surprising that most people seemed unable to understand why the third millennium and the 21st century begin on 1 January 2001. Zero is still causing problems!

This is the fact that it never occured at the end of the digits but always between two digits. So although we find 21 \’\’ 6 we never find 216 \’\’. One has to assume that the older feeling that the context was sufficient to indicate which was intended still applied in these cases.

If this reference to context appears silly then it is worth noting that we still use context to interpret numbers today. If I take a bus to a nearby town and ask what the fare is then I know that the answer \”It\’s three fifty\” means three pounds fifty pence. Yet if the same answer is given to the question about the cost of a flight from Edinburgh to New York then I know that three hundred and fifty pounds is what is intended.

We can see from this that the early use of zero to denote an empty place is not really the use of zero as a number at all, merely the use of some type of punctuation mark so that the numbers had the correct interpretation.

Now the ancient Greeks began their contributions to mathematics around the time that zero as an empty place indicator was coming into use in Babylonian mathematics. The Greeks however did not adopt a positional number system. It is worth thinking just how significant this fact is. How could the brilliant mathematical advances of the Greeks not see them adopt a number system with all the advantages that the Babylonian place-value system possessed? The real answer to this question is more subtle than the simple answer that we are about to give, but basically the Greek mathematical achievements were based on geometry. Although Euclid\’s Elements contains a book on number theory, it is based on geometry. In other words Greek mathematicians did not need to name their numbers since they worked with numbers as lengths of lines. Numbers which required to be named for records were used by merchants, not mathematicians, and hence no clever notation was needed.

Now there were exceptions to what we have just stated. The exceptions were the mathematicians who were involved in recording astronomical data. Here we find the first use of the symbol which we recognise today as the notation for zero, for Greek astronomers began to use the symbol O. There are many theories why this particular notation was used. Some historians favour the explanation that it is omicron, the first letter of the Greek word for nothing namely \”ouden\”. Neugebauer, however, dismisses this explanation since the Greeks already used omicron as a number – it represented 70 (the Greek number system was based on their alphabet). Other explanations offered include the fact that it stands for \”obol\”, a coin of almost no value, and that it arises when counters were used for counting on a sand board. The suggestion here is that when a counter was removed to leave an empty column it left a depression in the sand which looked like O.

Ptolemy in the Almagest written around 130 AD uses the Babylonian sexagesimal system together with the empty place holder O. By this time Ptolemy is using the symbol both between digits and at the end of a number and one might be tempted to believe that at least zero as an empty place holder had firmly arrived. This, however, is far from what happened. Only a few exceptional astronomers used the notation and it would fall out of use several more times before finally establishing itself. The idea of the zero place (certainly not thought of as a number by Ptolemy who still considered it as a sort of punctuation mark) makes its next appearance in Indian mathematics.

The scene now moves to India where it is fair to say the numerals and number system was born which have evolved into the highly sophisticated ones we use today. Of course that is not to say that the Indian system did not owe something to earlier systems and many historians of mathematics believe that the Indian use of zero evolved from its use by Greek astronomers. As well as some historians who seem to want to play down the contribution of the Indians in a most unreasonable way, there are also those who make claims about the Indian invention of zero which seem to go far too far. For example Mukherjee in [6] claims:-

… the mathematical conception of zero … was also present in the spiritual form from 17 000 years back in India.

What is certain is that by around 650AD the use of zero as a number came into Indian mathematics. The Indians also used a place-value system and zero was used to denote an empty place. In fact there is evidence of an empty place holder in positional numbers from as early as 200AD in India but some historians dismiss these as later forgeries. Let us examine this latter use first since it continues the development described above.

In around 500AD Aryabhata devised a number system which has no zero yet was a positional system. He used the word \”kha\” for position and it would be used later as the name for zero. There is evidence that a dot had been used in earlier Indian manuscripts to denote an empty place in positional notation. It is interesting that the same documents sometimes also used a dot to denote an unknown where we might use x. Later Indian mathematicians had names for zero in positional numbers yet had no symbol for it. The first record of the Indian use of zero which is dated and agreed by all to be genuine was written in 876.

We have an inscription on a stone tablet which contains a date which translates to 876. The inscription concerns the town of Gwalior, 400 km south of Delhi, where they planted a garden 187 by 270 hastas which would produce enough flowers to allow 50 garlands per day to be given to the local temple. Both of the numbers 270 and 50 are denoted almost as they appear today although the 0 is smaller and slightly raised.

We now come to considering the first appearance of zero as a number. Let us first note that it is not in any sense a natural candidate for a number. From early times numbers are words which refer to collections of objects. Certainly the idea of number became more and more abstract and this abstraction then makes possible the consideration of zero and negative numbers which do not arise as properties of collections of objects. Of course the problem which arises when one tries to consider zero and negatives as numbers is how they interact in regard to the operations of arithmetic, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In three important books the Indian mathematicians Brahmagupta, Mahavira and Bhaskara tried to answer these questions.

Brahmagupta attempted to give the rules for arithmetic involving zero and negative numbers in the seventh century. He explained that given a number then if you subtract it from itself you obtain zero. He gave the following rules for addition which involve zero:-

The sum of zero and a negative number is negative, the sum of a positive number and zero is positive, the sum of zero and zero is zero.

Subtraction is a little harder:-

A negative number subtracted from zero is positive, a positive number subtracted from zero is negative, zero subtracted from a negative number is negative, zero subtracted from a positive number is positive, zero subtracted from zero is zero.

Brahmagupta then says that any number when multiplied by zero is zero but struggles when it comes to division:-

A positive or negative number when divided by zero is a fraction with the zero as denominator. Zero divided by a negative or positive number is either zero or is expressed as a fraction with zero as numerator and the finite quantity as denominator. Zero divided by zero is zero.

Really Brahmagupta is saying very little when he suggests that n divided by zero is n/0. Clearly he is struggling here. He is certainly wrong when he then claims that zero divided by zero is zero. However it is a brilliant attempt from the first person that we know who tried to extend arithmetic to negative numbers and zero.

In 830, around 200 years after Brahmagupta wrote his masterpiece, Mahavira wrote Ganita Sara Samgraha which was designed as an updating of Brahmagupta\’s book. He correctly states that:-

… a number multiplied by zero is zero, and a number remains the same when zero is subtracted from it.

However his attempts to improve on Brahmagupta\’s statements on dividing by zero seem to lead him into error. He writes:-

A number remains unchanged when divided by zero.

Since this is clearly incorrect my use of the words \”seem to lead him into error\” might be seen as confusing. The reason for this phrase is that some commentators on Mahavira have tried to find excuses for his incorrect statement.

Bhaskara wrote over 500 years after Brahmagupta. Despite the passage of time he is still struggling to explain division by zero. He writes:-

A quantity divided by zero becomes a fraction the denominator of which is zero. This fraction is termed an infinite quantity. In this quantity consisting of that which has zero for its divisor, there is no alteration, though many may be inserted or extracted; as no change takes place in the infinite and immutable God when worlds are created or destroyed, though numerous orders of beings are absorbed or put forth.

So Bhaskara tried to solve the problem by writing n/0 = ∞. At first sight we might be tempted to believe that Bhaskara has it correct, but of course he does not. If this were true then 0 times ∞ must be equal to every number n, so all numbers are equal. The Indian mathematicians could not bring themselves to the point of admitting that one could not divide by zero. Bhaskara did correctly state other properties of zero, however, such as 02 = 0, and √0 = 0.

Perhaps we should note at this point that there was another civilisation which developed a place-value number system with a zero. This was the Maya people who lived in central America, occupying the area which today is southern Mexico, Guatemala, and northern Belize. This was an old civilisation but flourished particularly between 250 and 900. We know that by 665 they used a place-value number system to base 20 with a symbol for zero. However their use of zero goes back further than this and was in use before they introduced the place-valued number system. This is a remarkable achievement but sadly did not influence other peoples.

You can see a separate article about Mayan mathematics.

The brilliant work of the Indian mathematicians was transmitted to the Islamic and Arabic mathematicians further west. It came at an early stage for al-Khwarizmi wrote Al\’Khwarizmi on the Hindu Art of Reckoning which describes the Indian place-value system of numerals based on 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 0. This work was the first in what is now Iraq to use zero as a place holder in positional base notation. Ibn Ezra, in the 12th century, wrote three treatises on numbers which helped to bring the Indian symbols and ideas of decimal fractions to the attention of some of the learned people in Europe. The Book of the Number describes the decimal system for integers with place values from left to right. In this work ibn Ezra uses zero which he calls galgal (meaning wheel or circle). Slightly later in the 12th century al-Samawal was writing:-

If we subtract a positive number from zero the same negative number remains. … if we subtract a negative number from zero the same positive number remains.

The Indian ideas spread east to China as well as west to the Islamic countries. In 1247 the Chinese mathematician Ch\’in Chiu-Shao wrote Mathematical treatise in nine sections which uses the symbol O for zero. A little later, in 1303, Zhu Shijie wrote Jade mirror of the four elements which again uses the symbol O for zero.

Fibonacci was one of the main people to bring these new ideas about the number system to Europe. As the authors of [12] write:-

An important link between the Hindu-Arabic number system and the European mathematics is the Italian mathematician Fibonacci.

In Liber Abaci he described the nine Indian symbols together with the sign 0 for Europeans in around 1200 but it was not widely used for a long time after that. It is significant that Fibonacci is not bold enough to treat 0 in the same way as the other numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 since he speaks of the \”sign\” zero while the other symbols he speaks of as numbers. Although clearly bringing the Indian numerals to Europe was of major importance we can see that in his treatment of zero he did not reach the sophistication of the Indians Brahmagupta, Mahavira and Bhaskara nor of the Arabic and Islamic mathematicians such as al-Samawal.

One might have thought that the progress of the number systems in general, and zero in particular, would have been steady from this time on. However, this was far from the case. Cardan solved cubic and quartic equations without using zero. He would have found his work in the 1500\’s so much easier if he had had a zero but it was not part of his mathematics. By the 1600\’s zero began to come into widespread use but still only after encountering a lot of resistance.

Of course there are still signs of the problems caused by zero. Recently many people throughout the world celebrated the new millennium on 1 January 2000. Of course they celebrated the passing of only 1999 years since when the calendar was set up no year zero was specified. Although one might forgive the original error, it is a little surprising that most people seemed unable to understand why the third millennium and the 21st century begin on 1 January 2001. Zero is still causing problems!

A history of Zero

Ancient Indian Mathematics

One of the commonest questions which the readers of this archive ask is: Who discovered zero? Why then have we not written an article on zero as one of the first in the archive? The reason is basically because of the difficulty of answering the question in a satisfactory form. If someone had come up with the concept of zero which everyone then saw as a brilliant innovation to enter mathematics from that time on, the question would have a satisfactory answer even if we did not know which genius invented it. The historical record, however, shows quite a different path towards the concept. Zero makes shadowy appearances only to vanish again almost as if mathematicians were searching for it yet did not recognise its fundamental significance even when they saw it.

The first thing to say about zero is that there are two uses of zero which are both extremely important but are somewhat different. One use is as an empty place indicator in our place-value number system. Hence in a number like 2106 the zero is used so that the positions of the 2 and 1 are correct. Clearly 216 means something quite different. The second use of zero is as a number itself in the form we use it as 0. There are also different aspects of zero within these two uses, namely the concept, the notation, and the name. (Our name \\\”zero\\\” derives ultimately from the Arabic sifr which also gives us the word \\\”cipher\\\”.)

Neither of the above uses has an easily described history. It just did not happen that someone invented the ideas, and then everyone started to use them. Also it is fair to say that the number zero is far from an intuitive concept. Mathematical problems started as \\\’real\\\’ problems rather than abstract problems. Numbers in early historical times were thought of much more concretely than the abstract concepts which are our numbers today. There are giant mental leaps from 5 horses to 5 \\\”things\\\” and then to the abstract idea of \\\”five\\\”. If ancient peoples solved a problem about how many horses a farmer needed then the problem was not going to have 0 or -23 as an answer.

One might think that once a place-value number system came into existence then the 0 as an empty place indicator is a necessary idea, yet the Babylonians had a place-value number system without this feature for over 1000 years. Moreover there is absolutely no evidence that the Babylonians felt that there was any problem with the ambiguity which existed. Remarkably, original texts survive from the era of Babylonian mathematics. The Babylonians wrote on tablets of unbaked clay, using cuneiform writing. The symbols were pressed into soft clay tablets with the slanted edge of a stylus and so had a wedge-shaped appearance (and hence the name cuneiform). Many tablets from around 1700 BC survive and we can read the original texts. Of course their notation for numbers was quite different from ours (and not based on 10 but on 60) but to translate into our notation they would not distinguish between 2106 and 216 (the context would have to show which was intended). It was not until around 400 BC that the Babylonians put two wedge symbols into the place where we would put zero to indicate which was meant, 216 or 21 \\\’\\\’ 6.

The two wedges were not the only notation used, however, and on a tablet found at Kish, an ancient Mesopotamian city located east of Babylon in what is today south-central Iraq, a different notation is used. This tablet, thought to date from around 700 BC, uses three hooks to denote an empty place in the positional notation. Other tablets dated from around the same time use a single hook for an empty place. There is one common feature to this use of different marks to denote an empty position. This is the fact that it never occured at the end of the digits but always between two digits. So although we find 21 \\\’\\\’ 6 we never find 216 \\\’\\\’. One has to assume that the older feeling that the context was sufficient to indicate which was intended still applied in these cases.

The Greeks however did not adopt a positional number system. It is worth thinking just how significant this fact is. How could the brilliant mathematical advances of the Greeks not see them adopt a number system with all the advantages that the Babylonian place-value system possessed? The real answer to this question is more subtle than the simple answer that we are about to give, but basically the Greek mathematical achievements were based on geometry. Although Euclid’s Elements contains a book on number theory, it is based on geometry. In other words Greek mathematicians did not need to name their numbers since they worked with numbers as lengths of lines. Numbers which required to be named for records were used by merchants, not mathematicians, and hence no clever notation was needed.

Now there were exceptions to what we have just stated. The exceptions were the mathematicians who were involved in recording astronomical data. Here we find the first use of the symbol which we recognise today as the notation for zero, for Greek astronomers began to use the symbol O. There are many theories why this particular notation was used. Some historians favour the explanation that it is omicron, the first letter of the Greek word for nothing namely “ouden”. Neugebauer, however, dismisses this explanation since the Greeks already used omicron as a number – it represented 70 (the Greek number system was based on their alphabet). Other explanations offered include the fact that it stands for “obol”, a coin of almost no value, and that it arises when counters were used for counting on a sand board. The suggestion here is that when a counter was removed to leave an empty column it left a depression in the sand which looked like O.

Ptolemy in the Almagest written around 130 AD uses the Babylonian sexagesimal system together with the empty place holder O. By this time Ptolemy is using the symbol both between digits and at the end of a number and one might be tempted to believe that at least zero as an empty place holder had firmly arrived. This, however, is far from what happened. Only a few exceptional astronomers used the notation and it would fall out of use several more times before finally establishing itself. The idea of the zero place (certainly not thought of as a number by Ptolemy who still considered it as a sort of punctuation mark) makes its next appearance in Indian mathematics.

The scene now moves to India where it is fair to say the numerals and number system was born which have evolved into the highly sophisticated ones we use today. Of course that is not to say that the Indian system did not owe something to earlier systems and many historians of mathematics believe that the Indian use of zero evolved from its use by Greek astronomers. As well as some historians who seem to want to play down the contribution of the Indians in a most unreasonable way, there are also those who make claims about the Indian invention of zero which seem to go far too far. For example Mukherjee in [6] claims:-

… the mathematical conception of zero … was also present in the spiritual form from 17 000 years back in India.

What is certain is that by around 650AD the use of zero as a number came into Indian mathematics. The Indians also used a place-value system and zero was used to denote an empty place. In fact there is evidence of an empty place holder in positional numbers from as early as 200AD in India but some historians dismiss these as later forgeries. Let us examine this latter use first since it continues the development described above.

In around 500AD Aryabhata devised a number system which has no zero yet was a positional system. He used the word “kha” for position and it would be used later as the name for zero. There is evidence that a dot had been used in earlier Indian manuscripts to denote an empty place in positional notation. It is interesting that the same documents sometimes also used a dot to denote an unknown where we might use x. Later Indian mathematicians had names for zero in positional numbers yet had no symbol for it. The first record of the Indian use of zero which is dated and agreed by all to be genuine was written in 876.

We have an inscription on a stone tablet which contains a date which translates to 876. The inscription concerns the town of Gwalior, 400 km south of Delhi, where they planted a garden 187 by 270 hastas which would produce enough flowers to allow 50 garlands per day to be given to the local temple. Both of the numbers 270 and 50 are denoted almost as they appear today although the 0 is smaller and slightly raised.

We now come to considering the first appearance of zero as a number. Let us first note that it is not in any sense a natural candidate for a number. From early times numbers are words which refer to collections of objects. Certainly the idea of number became more and more abstract and this abstraction then makes possible the consideration of zero and negative numbers which do not arise as properties of collections of objects. Of course the problem which arises when one tries to consider zero and negatives as numbers is how they interact in regard to the operations of arithmetic, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In three important books the Indian mathematicians Brahmagupta, Mahavira and Bhaskara tried to answer these questions.

Brahmagupta attempted to give the rules for arithmetic involving zero and negative numbers in the seventh century. He explained that given a number then if you subtract it from itself you obtain zero. He gave the following rules for addition which involve zero:-

The sum of zero and a negative number is negative, the sum of a positive number and zero is positive, the sum of zero and zero is zero.

Subtraction is a little harder:-

A negative number subtracted from zero is positive, a positive number subtracted from zero is negative, zero subtracted from a negative number is negative, zero subtracted from a positive number is positive, zero subtracted from zero is zero.

Brahmagupta then says that any number when multiplied by zero is zero but struggles when it comes to division:-

A positive or negative number when divided by zero is a fraction with the zero as denominator. Zero divided by a negative or positive number is either zero or is expressed as a fraction with zero as numerator and the finite quantity as denominator. Zero divided by zero is zero.

Really Brahmagupta is saying very little when he suggests that n divided by zero is n/0. Clearly he is struggling here. He is certainly wrong when he then claims that zero divided by zero is zero. However it is a brilliant attempt from the first person that we know who tried to extend arithmetic to negative numbers and zero.

In 830, around 200 years after Brahmagupta wrote his masterpiece, Mahavira wrote Ganita Sara Samgraha which was designed as an updating of Brahmagupta’s book. He correctly states that:-

… a number multiplied by zero is zero, and a number remains the same when zero is subtracted from it.

However his attempts to improve on Brahmagupta’s statements on dividing by zero seem to lead him into error. He writes:-

A number remains unchanged when divided by zero.

Since this is clearly incorrect my use of the words “seem to lead him into error” might be seen as confusing. The reason for this phrase is that some commentators on Mahavira have tried to find excuses for his incorrect statement.

Bhaskara wrote over 500 years after Brahmagupta. Despite the passage of time he is still struggling to explain division by zero. He writes:-

A quantity divided by zero becomes a fraction the denominator of which is zero. This fraction is termed an infinite quantity. In this quantity consisting of that which has zero for its divisor, there is no alteration, though many may be inserted or extracted; as no change takes place in the infinite and immutable God when worlds are created or destroyed, though numerous orders of beings are absorbed or put forth.

So Bhaskara tried to solve the problem by writing n/0 = ∞. At first sight we might be tempted to believe that Bhaskara has it correct, but of course he does not. If this were true then 0 times ∞ must be equal to every number n, so all numbers are equal. The Indian mathematicians could not bring themselves to the point of admitting that one could not divide by zero. Bhaskara did correctly state other properties of zero, however, such as 02 = 0, and √0 = 0.

Perhaps we should note at this point that there was another civilisation which developed a place-value number system with a zero. This was the Maya people who lived in central America, occupying the area which today is southern Mexico, Guatemala, and northern Belize. This was an old civilisation but flourished particularly between 250 and 900. We know that by 665 they used a place-value number system to base 20 with a symbol for zero. However their use of zero goes back further than this and was in use before they introduced the place-valued number system. This is a remarkable achievement but sadly did not influence other peoples.

You can see a separate article about Mayan mathematics.

The brilliant work of the Indian mathematicians was transmitted to the Islamic and Arabic mathematicians further west. It came at an early stage for al-Khwarizmi wrote Al’Khwarizmi on the Hindu Art of Reckoning which describes the Indian place-value system of numerals based on 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 0. This work was the first in what is now Iraq to use zero as a place holder in positional base notation. Ibn Ezra, in the 12th century, wrote three treatises on numbers which helped to bring the Indian symbols and ideas of decimal fractions to the attention of some of the learned people in Europe. The Book of the Number describes the decimal system for integers with place values from left to right. In this work ibn Ezra uses zero which he calls galgal (meaning wheel or circle). Slightly later in the 12th century al-Samawal was writing:-

If we subtract a positive number from zero the same negative number remains. … if we subtract a negative number from zero the same positive number remains.

The Indian ideas spread east to China as well as west to the Islamic countries. In 1247 the Chinese mathematician Ch’in Chiu-Shao wrote Mathematical treatise in nine sections which uses the symbol O for zero. A little later, in 1303, Zhu Shijie wrote Jade mirror of the four elements which again uses the symbol O for zero.

Fibonacci was one of the main people to bring these new ideas about the number system to Europe. As the authors of [12] write:-

An important link between the Hindu-Arabic number system and the European mathematics is the Italian mathematician Fibonacci.

In Liber Abaci he described the nine Indian symbols together with the sign 0 for Europeans in around 1200 but it was not widely used for a long time after that. It is significant that Fibonacci is not bold enough to treat 0 in the same way as the other numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 since he speaks of the “sign” zero while the other symbols he speaks of as numbers. Although clearly bringing the Indian numerals to Europe was of major importance we can see that in his treatment of zero he did not reach the sophistication of the Indians Brahmagupta, Mahavira and Bhaskara nor of the Arabic and Islamic mathematicians such as al-Samawal.

One might have thought that the progress of the number systems in general, and zero in particular, would have been steady from this time on. However, this was far from the case. Cardan solved cubic and quartic equations without using zero. He would have found his work in the 1500’s so much easier if he had had a zero but it was not part of his mathematics. By the 1600’s zero began to come into widespread use but still only after encountering a lot of resistance.

Of course there are still signs of the problems caused by zero. Recently many people throughout the world celebrated the new millennium on 1 January 2000. Of course they celebrated the passing of only 1999 years since when the calendar was set up no year zero was specified. Although one might forgive the original error, it is a little surprising that most people seemed unable to understand why the third millennium and the 21st century begin on 1 January 2001. Zero is still causing problems!

guys just press ctrl+f, and search for any country.
the word ”india” is the most written in the comments.

for this you have to use google chrome browser,as it displays the no of occurrences of the word.

and most of the comments are positive about india,including non indians.
only fool pakis are writing negative about India.
when the world goes in one direction ,these fools go in reverse direction,which is evident from the situation in their country.

it seems India is most popular country(positively).

I’m pretty sure this list was based on the QUALITY OF LIFE at that time, not the attitudes of the people, not the scenery.
Hurricanes, tsunamis, monsoons, earthquakes, war, famine, drought, etc. all affect the quality of life.
Quit making yourselves look like fools.

As for reading about the LRA… That makes me sick to my stomach.

1.for one Pakistan because it is a terrorist country and people will kill you especially if you are a journalist or American, remember what happened to Daniel pearl?
they preach about Islam and all this bullshit, when they dont want no peace. all they want is bodybags and dead bodys to stuff in them.

2. Bangladesh is a very corrupt country, Disease and poverty kill the country, as most Bangladeshis are very very jealous people. so jealous that they will try to kill you and torture you just to make their pathetic selfs feel better. Bangladeshis are also muslim fanatics and extremists and im warning you. if you are white or light skin…. dont go to bangladesh as they heavily envy light skin, they will be so jealous they will kill you just for being white or light skin! trust me. one of my beautiful girlfriends nearly got killed in Bangladesh but wild dark ugly savages.
Many claim that Bengalis are very hospitable good people, they basically are corrupt,evil,2faced,and backstabbing. (never trust a bangladeshi)

3.India has too much disease,poverty, and in India the whole country is a sewage dump. well if you like skinny dipping in Poop and diaherra beaches, then india is the place for you. but since most of us practice good hygiene, then india isnt the place for you!

4. Cambodia is a great country with rich historic culture. but they also hate Americans because of our rich society and prosper development. i remember at the time nomking Kahn was complaining about America being selfish and only looked at their interest for development, while they were building gadgets to go to the moon, they couldnt even give us (cambodia) one airplane for the country. He referred to Americans as “Whitemans Black Magic”

5.Congo, Do you like Ebola? do you want to die from internal Massive Hemorhagging? Catching Ebola is only a 1% chance, but being invited to Congo for a weekend you are 98% sure to get Ebola, and Ebola has a 90% death mortality rate, so if you want to commit suicide on your travels, then Congo welcomes you! also this country has aggressive wild Chimpanzees and Gorillas running around loose in the country, so im warning you never walk out in the jungle or go on a safari by yourself. you will be attacked and killed by a gorilla. its not worth the risk!

6.Nigeria. well we all know that Nigerians are big time crooks, if they aint pick pocketing or mugging on the streets, they are pretending to be women or innocent children posing as sales people or sick people over the internet. Nigeria is famous for being the worlds biggest Con-artists. they will scam you and spamm you. if you ever meet a beautiful woman or a sick child on the internet asking or wanting to borrow money? then you know its too good to be true….must be a Nigerian!

7.Bahrain,supposedly the higher educated Arabs, the Arabs with respect and warm welcome. dont be fooled by the Riches and gold. Most Bahrain Arabs are homosexual and wont hesitate to invite you over to the golden palace or offer you money to get in your pants. i have never seen so many paranoid women in veils my whole life and never seen so many homosexual Arabs in Bahrain. wonder if they serious muslims?

8.England, supposedly the melting pot like America, the open circus to where we let everyone from around the world into our country, just to find out we are using these immigrants and making servants out of them. i have never been to a country to where people are very selfish arrogant and rude. England sucks and is a very boring country. you will be bored with it, unless your a big fan of waffles and toast?

9.Vietnam……. why would you want to visit a country where they kicked Americans asses in the vietnam war? i mean hey Us Americans never been defeated by anybody except for the vietnamese, they really tore us apart and made sluts and pussys out of us. dont go to Vietnam unless you want your ass kicked!

10.Singapore? remeber michael??? the one who was wiplashed for spraying grafetti on public property. you cant have long hair, you cant chew gum, you cant spit, you are like a prisoner in a picture. dont go to singapore. you will be backlashed,beaten,killed, executed, or even decapitated for doing things that us Americans take for granted everyday!

that’s ridiculous. thailand shouldn’t be on the list. every country has it’s own natural disasters. moreover it’s only a few islands/provinces in the south that took the effect. it’s all ok now everything got fixed. and you still have bangkok, pattaya, hua hin, and a million other places to travel by. your list sucks.

I am surprised that Israel is not on the list with all bus bombings and the rockets falling out of the sky. Wasn\’t there a war there in 2008?
Why are Thailand and Indonesia, victims of one freak Tsunami more dangerous that Chechnya which has been at war, more or less, for the last decade?

U put Thailand in here for the Tsunami ? What the ****. I’m 20 from England been living here the past 2 years since I was 18 on my own… (now have a girlfriend and a daughter) U can’t put a place as dangerous cus of a fin tsunami u fin idiot.

India should be on this list!

Its no better than Muslim countries when it comes to treating females!

India is also very dirty…roads,houses,monuments…everything is dirty!

In India,people like to dominate women who have little or no freedom at all…which is why its a developing country and will always be,no matter how much “progress” it makes!!

Indians blame every other country,race and religion for anything bad that happens in their country…e.g.if an Indian girl is raped then Indians will say that she was raped because she was “aping’ the west…even if she wore decent clothes or Burqa!

Indians pretend to respect people of all religions but in reality,they despise every other religion and culture besides their own….they also like to BELIEVE that India is the best country in the world which its NOT!

Indians take a lot of pride in thinking that they are more developed or modern than Pakistan and other asian nations like China,Sri Lanka,Nepal,etc…

Hence,India is a HORRIBLE country to live…! It may not be the worst but its one of the worst!

TRUTH HURTS :)

how nice to see indian and pakistani people fighting with each other. indians with their superiority complex and pakistani’s with their irritated responses. quite a show you are putting in front of the whole world. splendid indeed. as far as the worst country goes- no country is “worst”. its a transitional phase having a lot to with economy and governance.

However by mentality, the people definitely are responsible for getting there country labelled as worst. and indians and pakistanis on this forum have shown repeatedly that it is not worthwhile to go to either of these countries.
on a separate note, the terrorism in pakistan is due to its involvement in the war on terror and is a transitory phase. Like no one would ave wanted to go to berlin in 1945.
but with india the problem is cultural. they are culturally inclined to remain unclean or live in unhygienic conditions. No foreigner can overlook the staunch which welcomes you when you land at the airport. and then cows and rats being worshiped here and there and allowed to roam around freely and meddle in food items… i dont know about that, but in the west we have had plague due to those rats. in india they are worshiped and the items they touch, food items or otherwise, are considered sacred.

But find for your self. iraq is a great country with a lot of cultural heritage. it is one of the oldest civilizations in the world…
so the list is pretty much subjective in my opinion.

indians are the worst people and mumbai is the worst city to live in

ronscky_88

Oct 22nd, 2011

For me, on my own opinion and based on my research, My top 10 on the list for worst countries to visit this year (2011) are:

1. Afghanistan
2. Libya
3. Iraq
4. Syria
5. Pakistan
7. Greece
8. Somalia
9. Myanmar (formerly, Burma)
10. North Korea

These countries are currently experiencing conflict/clash/retaliation and Demonstration within the region but surely their Gov’t try their best in order to fix challenge and they are working together to end these conflict.

Well! for me, the Philippines should be on top 150…NOT on top 10 just because it also experiencing conflict between the people in Mindanao.Only some part of Mindanao particularly in Basilan and Maguindanao experiencing these and the rest of the region is Very SAFE! I’m pretty sure that the Philippine Gov’t also looks the best solution for Mindanao in order to end the long time conflict/clash in that area. The gov’t hoping for peace and prosperity not only in Mindanao but for the entire country.

Phils. are doing its best towards progress to become more competitive country in the world. I think you should not include Thailand and Indonesia on your list bec. These are one of the best countries in Asia.

the Philippines is still a safe country to travel so you don’t have to worry about! Don’t hesitate to come and visit us here in the Phils. Lots of nice places such as beaches, resorts, infrastructure, churches, provinces, cities and lots more.. You will encounter being the one of the happiest people in the world and the generosity of the Filipinos.
GOOD LUCK! MABUHAY!

do you know a fact about muslims, how retard are they????

has anyone heard about HALALA .????

i will tell you—————

when there is a fight between husband and wife,the husband has a right to order his wife to do HALALA,OR IF SHE DOES NOT AGREE, she has to give divorce.

question:WHAT IS HALALA?
ANSWER: THE WIFE HAS TO SLEEP WITH OTHER MAN FOR SOME DAYS,BEFORE SHE IS TAKEN BACK BY HER ORIGINAL HUSBAND.

oh thats why paki girls wear burka,they don’t have a face to show.

even animals are better.

thats why they love china’s ass so much.

scarlet, the reason why uganda is on the list is because the u.s wants to invade it. in fact, 0bama sent troops there last month. it’s also a coincidence that large oil deposits have recently been discovered there. one thing this list has in common is they are all countries the u.s wants to control. shortly after this list was compiled, the u.s backed terorist groups in thailand to overthrow thaksin, and replaced him with a more complicit pupet. u.s military is also in somalia now and flying predator drones over it. the u.s sponsored terorists in south sudan to seprate from the main sudan. one coincidence- south sudan is the part of sudan with oil. the u.s regime has been trying to get a sepratist movement going in chechnya for ages to try to weaken Russia. as far as Palestine goes, the u.s has to continuously demonise Palestine because they need israel to destabilise the middle east, and make it easier for the u.s to control. a region in chaos is easier to control, and rob, than a region that is stable. it’s funny how much hidden meaning is behind these types of propaganda lists that the u.s regime creates. indonesia also has large amounts of natural resources. how long til the usa, and its allies invade niger, or attempt some kind of colour revolution? each time the u.s regime publishes saying these countries are the worst, or are a threat, it just means the u.s regime wants to either invade this country, regime change, or there is something of value that the u.s regime wants to get its claws on.

@ann paterson, asylum seekers are nothing more than terorists who helped the usa, or some european regime overthrow the leader of whatever country they came from. so if youre an Iraqi asylum seeker, most likely, you comited some acts of teror to try to topple Sadam, and europe rewards the terorist by giving him european citizenship. it doesnt mean that europe is a better place for granting the Iraqi european citizenship, but shows the true hypocrisy of europeans for sponsoring terror, while claiming to fight it. let’s see how many Syrian “refugees” we see in the coming months. the reason why north korea is not on the list is because the u.s has no chance of invading them. they already lost the war. or it could be that north korea provides free housing, education, and healthcare to all its citizens. thats alot more than i can say about the usa, canada, britain, australia, etc. north koreans are also not subject to predatory loans, idiot consumerism, and the decay of moral values that we see in the west. one thing north koreans can do is share. can the west do this? can the west stop leeching off of others to enjoy their luxurious lifestyles? if you’re willing to murder a million innocent civilians to steal their oil, do i really want to visit your country? all the countries on the list are countries that can’t defend themselves. notice how Iran isnt on the list. this is because the u.s and its allies dont stand a chance to defeat them. @ugh. let me get this straight, these people digust you with their constant hatred of the u.s, yet it doesnt disgust you that the u.s makes lists like the “worst countries to visit”. that just goes to show how mentally challenged westerners are. i can’t imagine any country in the world, except white countries, making a list called “worst countries to visit”. here’s a more realistic list of worst countries to visit. usa, britain, ireland, germany, france, italy, iceland, netherlands, norway, danmark, sweden, austria, switzerland, belgium, canada, australia, new zealand, japan, south korea, singapore, qatar, turkey, uae, ksa, bahrain, israel (if you want to call it a country). want to know what all these regimes have in common? theyre all occupied by greedy banksters, multinational corporations, and right wing fascist dictators. Pakistan is a great counttry but led down the wrong path. you cant blame Pakistanis for this, because western intelligence agencies asasinated Bhuto, and any chance that Pakistan ever had for a real leader. what a coincidence, cia/mi6/mosad also has a long history of asasinating leaders in India too. it’s no wonder Pakistan, and India are fighting.

I have not been to many places. In my experience, Taiwan is the worst place to visit for travel, even though I am Taiwanese myself. People’s attitudes are terrible. I go there often and I find that each visit is worse than the previous. There are a few who offer hospitality, which kind of makes up for the overall experience.

There are a lot of racist comments on here. I bet most of you haven’t even visited the countries you ‘percieve’ as the worst.

I have lived and been to the following countries so the worst from the list below has to be Malaysia and the best is New Zealand and no I am not a New Zealander.

Singapore
Malaysia
Thailand
India
Afghanistan (yes and its actually quite a nice place and a correction to the idiots – the taliban are all pakistanis who want to take over afghanistan)
China
USA
Canada
Australia
New Zealand
Dubai (the worst thing about dubai is the people especially the customs)

Pakistan is worst then Iraq and Afghanistan. if you dont include Pakistan means your list is waste and not having meaning and also include Bangladesh and Iran

Whatever that is wrong with Afghanistan is a direct result of the evil that is Pakistan. That country (Pakistan) should be fenced off completely by all country that is serious about preventing death and injury. Most of the terrorism comes from Pakistan.

Cool

This is completely based on the writer’s opinion. I bet that he’d never been to more than 2-3 countries on the list he put.

Very bad poll actually.

hello.
are these worst country is just about Tsunami too??
I am from Japan and I have just bought some property in Bangkok.
One reason because the radiation and Tsunami where can take place in the coastal area including Tokyo at anytime.
I don’t know much about outside East Asia.

But the worst place/attraction area to visit which relate to the fear of disaster within East Asia is;
1. Nagoya city and its neighbor including Suzuka city (famous F1 track), Japan (prediction – next earthquake strike). The city the biggest in Central Japan and yet locate next to the bay area.
2. Fukushima area (think about it if strike again)
3. Shizuoka city famous for mount Fuji (a coastal #1 spot not to be when Tsunami visiting you)
4. Okinawa (you would get Earthquake, Tsunami, Typhoon, and the US base (not the American military but it just being a nice spot for the North Korea and Chinese fireworks)
5. Most of the Philippines (Earthquake, Typhoon, Tsunami, Flood, Volcano Xplore)
6. Whole Indonesia (Earthquake, Flood, Tsunami, Volcano Xplore)
7. Taiwan (Earthquake, Typhoon, Tsunami)
8. South of Vietnam (Typhoon, and possible Tsunami when if strike Philippines)
9. Southern boarder of Thailand for terrorist could strike (Thailand should consider to separate these states from its country just like the State of Palestine from Israel country). Thailand would be the one most developed in East Asia if they don’t get drag along from these southern terrorist.
10. Penang Is. (Malaysia) and Phuket (Thaiand) : could Tsunami strike again…?

For the best place I would recommend to be away from disaster areas in East Asia;

1. Singapore (although it’s expensive but safest)
2. Brunei (i never heard of disaster) unless anyone??
3. Seoul (with hope of no fireworks from North Korea) is a nice city without much disaster effect.
4. Bangkok Thailand; Of cause where I finally have made a decision to stay (if something happen to Japan again). Although there was flood last year but tremendous hi-tech projects have been developed to prevent from this disaster again.
5. Hong Kong / Macao (well Typhoon just dont come all the time)
6. Vladivostok (if this count as East Asia) never heard of natural disaster except too cold.
7. KL Malaysia; (some flood and storm)
8. Busan (some storm and small chance of Tsunami)
9. Sapporo Japan (smaller quake strike) and yet not in a coastal area.
10. Hanoi (few storm) however not yet really develop but should be prospect for future.

Sorry for I am not consider North Korea or Mainland as being communist is kinda like a disaster come in to my life.

I’ll say one thing…
‘Stop bitching if you’ve never been in one of those country or knowing the real history.’

Indonesia has one of the best cultures at one place on Earth.
Bali bombings is a terrorist attack that all of us must handle and it happen all around the world.

and Tsunami? i wish you have lived here in Asia during that period of time to realize the pain of these people who lost their homes and family, it’s mother nature who did it, so it happen all around the world.
And Japan has more potential of tsunami every single day rather than these two country in case if you think it’s because of these fucking Tsunamis, that you judge these countries are a bad place to visit.

Bali, Toraja, Borneo, Java, Sumatra, Jogja, Raja Ampat …. shall i continue?, by just travel from one of those city to another, you’ll find a completely different environment and culture and even local language(you surely don’t have something like that in your place) there’s a lot more than you think(or some jerks told you) about this country and that goes to Thailand and the rest of your list.

Learn the real history before you start bitching yourself. Racism are surely your breakfast when you making this article buddy.
