Welcome to South Asian Studies

Being heterogeneously divided into landscapes and regions, South Asia houses one of the highest multi-ethnic and multi-cultural mixes of the world, with one of the highest ethnic and linguistic variation in the world. Yet the region has the potential to counter, if not set a challenge to China and the USA in global domination, Of course in such matters one needs to keep in mind that the constant brain-drain of both hard and soft skilled labor is hampering the growth of the region. It is under such situation that we have gathered experts from all walks of life, under one common umbrella of South Asian Studies harness the available information and put it to use, for the greater benefit of South Asian region, and also for providing information to people around the world to constitute in our effort.

Locating And Understanding South Asia

South Asia is a contested terminology that gained momentum since World War II when Asia Pacific became the battleground for Atlantic nations. The maps had been vaguely named according to geographical locations, and countries to the Southern tip of Asia, came to be constituted to, what we find the present day South Asia. The region, if studied geographically, is a conglomerate whole of a common landmass that shares the Himalayan range, and moves downwards therefrom, up until the oceanic nation of Maldives.

The region shared a common colonial past, as much as being colonized by a single power throughout, where the present day countries of Afghanistan, Myanmar (Burma) and Northeast India were kept for separate administrative policies, with pockets of other colonies at the eastern and western coasts of India, and also native (princely) rulers.Post- Colonialism scenario was marked with forging of national identities, and created separatism based on the past colonial experiences. The region gained its ‘united’ nature much later through a common platform of South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation (SAARC) that had been formed on the model of ASEAN and EU for a joint economic development. Alas! it is experienced ups and downs. In the upcoming years, one of the major changes to observe is to see the role China into it, because of its potential as a land as well as oceanic power.
