    The spring season is important for farmers. Crops ripen in the fields. Farmer’s stores wheat and barley at home. Everybody feels a sense of joy and happiness.

    Besides, spring is a season of festivals of the Hindus. Holi is a festival of eating and drinking. People enjoy it most. Holi adds to the glory of the spring season.

    The history of Pakistan ( Urdu : تاريخ پاكِستان ‎) encompasses the history of the regions constituting modern day Pakistan. Prior to independence in 1947, the areas now known as Pakistan were ruled in various periods by local kings and numerous imperial powers. The ancient history of the region consisting of present-day Pakistan also includes some of the oldest empires of the Indian Subcontinent ; [1] and some of the world''''s major civilizations [2] [3] [4] [5] such as the Indus Valley civilization.

    With the death of President Zia-ul-Haq in 1988, new general elections saw the victory of PPP led by Benazir Bhutto who was elevated as the country''''s first female Prime Minister of Pakistan. Over the next decade, she alternated power with the conservative Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML(N)) led by Nawaz Sharif , as the country''''s political and economic situation deteriorated. Military tensions in the Kargil conflict [16] with India were followed by yet another coup d''''état in 1999 in which General Pervez Musharraf assumed executive powers.

    Greek philosopher Plato writes Symposium , in which men at a drinking party philosophize about the nature of love. Aristophanes, a comic playwright, tells a story of creation in which original human nature includes a third sex. This sex was a distinct kind, with a bodily shape and a name of its own, constituted by the union of the male and the female: but now only the word ‘androgynous’ is preserved, and that as a term of reproach.

    The Manusmriti ( Laws of Manu ), which forms the basis of Hindu rules, says, A male child is produced by a greater quantity of male seed, a female child by the prevalence of the female; if both are equal, a third-sex child or boy-and-girl twins are produced. But like many other early writings on human identity, the Manusmriti does not distinguish between biological traits and a person’s social role: The former determines the latter.

    1948: “Tribesmen” from Pakistan invade Kashmir with the support of the Pakistani government. The ruler of Kashmir asks India for help. India demands that Kashmir should accede to India first. The ruler agrees. India sends forces to Kashmir and the invasion is blocked. Kashmir is divided into a Pakistani controlled part and an Indian controlled part. This de facto partition continues to this date with the dividing line being known as the Line of Control.

    1948: India takes the Kashmir issue to the U.N. Security Council, which passes a resolution calling on Pakistan to do all it can “secure the withdrawal” of Pakistani citizens and “tribesmen” and asking that a plebiscite be held to determine the wishes of the people of Kashmir. Neither the force withdrawal nor the plebiscite has taken place.

    This new democratic era was just as turbulent as Pakistan s previous political history. Major political parties called for a boycott the 1985 election due to the non-party bias platform. In absence of political parties the candidates focused on local issues that superseded the majority of the candidates affiliations to particular parties. The Pakistani people were obviously interested in participating in the democratic process and disregarded the urge to boycott, 52.9% cast ballots for the National Assembly and 56.9% cast ballots for the provincial elections.

    Education is an effort of the senior people to transfer their knowledge to the younger members of society. It is thus an insti­tution, which plays a vital role in integrating an individual with his society and in maintaining the perpetuation of culture. Emile Durkheim defines education as “the influence exercised by the adult generation upon those who are not yet ready for adult life”.

    He further maintains that “society can survive only if there exists among its members a sufficient degree of homogeneity. The homogeneity is perpetuated and reinforced by education. A child through education learns basic rules, regulations, norms and values of society”.

    While the official name of the nation is the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, generally the country has been referred to as Pakistan since 1971.

    Pakistan consists of several provinces, including Punjab, Sind, North-West Frontier, Baluchistan, and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

    All of these questions have very long answers and for these reasons I have included the web sites so you can read them for more info. absolutism: n. 1. a.A political theory holding that all power should be vested in one ruler or other authority. b.A form of government in which all power is vested in a single ruler or other authority. 2.An absolute doctrine, principle, or standard. More info can be found at http://www.history2.professorpage.info/​absolutism.htmh Compare American and French Revolutions: Both the American Revolution and French Revolution were the products of Enlightenment ideals that emphasized the idea of natural rights and equality. With such an ideological basis, it becomes clear when one sets out to compare the French Revolution and American Revolution that people felt the need to be free from oppressive or tyrannical rule of absolute monarchs and have the ability to live independent from such forces. The leadership in both countries at the time of their revolutions was certainly repressive, especially in terms of taxation. Both areas suffered social and economic hardships that led to the realization that something must be done to topple the hierarchy and put power back into the hands of the people. http://www.articlemyriad.com/46.htm The Age of Reason was an eighteenth-century movement which followed hard after the mysticism, religion, and superstition of the Middle Ages.
