Being Married In India
In a typical Indian household there are three generations living together.
Upon marriage, a woman leaves her parents' home and shares her husband home with his relative
Parents usually arrange the marriage but the couple can deny.
Marriages for love does not occur often.
Many people think of marriage as the connection between to families instead of just two people.
If one person does something, your whole entire family is probably involved.
But, this can also create a close knit relationship between families.
The Indus Valley Civilization
The Indus Valley Civilization developed out of farming and herding communities around 7000 B.C.
It began to flourish around 4,600 years ago and it was centered in the vast river plains of what are now Pakistan and northwestern India.
It is named after the Pakistani town of Harrapa, where archaeologists first discovered evidence of the culture.
The heart of the civilization was on the vast food plain of the Indus and Hakra rivers
In some places, people began laying out carefully walled cities.
By 2,600 B.C. larger cities had developed.
