Respond to ONE of the three questions below in 3-4 pages that are double spaced, in 12 point font, with 1 inch page margins.
Please read the questions carefully, and indicate CLEARLY which one you are answering. Please try to use your own words as much as possible. Please try to avoid long quotations.
1. What do we know about the origins and spread of the Harappan Civilization of the Indus Valley? What were the most probable causes of its decline?
2. What do the pillar and rock inscriptions of Emperor Asoka tell us about the changes that took place in the administration of the Maurya Empire after the great battle of Kalinga?
3. How did Mahmud of Ghazni succeed in leading multiple military expeditions into India? Did his raids have any lasting impact?
Please consult your textbook, online sources and class notes to write your answers. These questions have been designed specifically around class lectures and the course material provided in this course. Please avoid long quotes from the textbook.
You are free to consult websites on Indian history available on the internet, such as Wikipedia. However, their contents are not always reliable, and you will not find all the necessary information in one place to answer these questions. Remember: sites on the internet cannot replace the textbook, reader or class lectures on which this assignment is based. Reproducing material from unsolicited websites will not help you write a successful or effective essay. Doing so without proper citations would amount to plagiarism.
You can use footnotes such as: R. K. Narayanan, Gods, Demons and Others, Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1993. After the first citation you can use an abbreviated form: Narayanan, Gods, Demons, pp. 23-24. For two consecutive footnotes citing the same text, you may use ibid, such as:
1. Narayanan, Gods, Demons, p. 23
2. Ibid. p. 24
