    Afghans and many Indians believed that King Amanullah was over thrown by tacit British Approval. Because British lost control of Afghanistan in 3rd Anglo Afghan War. Has to bow down in Treaty of Rawalpindi.

    Aĺlowing Afghanistan full sovereignty ..

    Afghans quickly established full diplomatic relationship with all world powers.

    British took it as humiliation .

    The King visited Turkey met Ata Turk. Went to Germany met Marshall Hindenburg .

    The Great Game is still going on.

      Yeah, like the Russians will find a warm reception in Afgan.

      You should be worried about China. They have no love for India.

      You might want to follow the path of peace and end your endless bickering with Pakistan before you find yourself in a bad position....
      We are already in bad position due to Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

      in coming millennium world will witness ,

      who gets peace first.

      The State of Israel

      or Republic of India.

      my bet is both nations has to continuously fight for survival.

        Ok Sir.

        Afghanistan is certainly not included in central Asia. Neither a part of middle east. Among the scholars of geography a matter of debate.

          A landlocked mountainous country with plains in the north and southwest, Afghanistan is located within South Asia[13][120] and Central Asia.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghanistan#Geography

          Considering it's landlocked, North of Pakistan, borders the old USSR and China and Iran it surly is Central Asia by any logical definition.

            Israel has strong allies, and is a progressive, unified nation. It's enemies are destroying themselves from within.

            India is split along religious and cultural lines, is limited in allies, and burdened with a cumbersome population.

            My bet is that Israel's problems recede, while India's grows. Your only hope is that China's problems grow at an equal pace. You've got too many muslims, and a major muslim enemy.

            You should have given it more thought before buying Russian weapons.
            Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

              From the same link :

              It is part of the US-coined Greater Middle East Muslim world, which lies between latitudes 29° N and 39° N, and longitudes60° E and 75° E
              but we see it in our area.

              South Asia or Southern Asia, is a term used to represent the southern region of the Asiancontinent, which comprises the sub-Himalayan SAARC countries and, for some authorities, adjoining countries to the west and east. Topographically, it is dominated by the Indian Plate, which rises above sea levelas Nepal and northern parts of India situated south of the Himalayas and the Hindu Kush. South Asia is bounded on the south by the Indian Ocean and on land (clockwise, from west) by West Asia, Central Asia, East Asia and South east Asia.

                    You can see in the map.

                    however the area around Afghanistan and Pakistan was the main area where Vedic Civilization flourished after Indus Valley Civilization.

                      Interactive map of spread of Vedic Civilization.

                      We had 3 groups .

                      1) Jana ( Clans / Tribes ) ruled by head.

                      2) Gana ( Republics ) ruled by two houses.
                      a) Sabha .
                      b) Samiti.

                      3 ) Rajya ( Kingdoms )

                      That was some 1500 to 2000 years before Christ.

                          [QUOTEVedic History of Afghanistan

                          The Kandhar city in Afghanistan is the current mispronunciation of the Sanskrit term “Gandhar” which was the capital of a flourishing ancient Hindu kingdom. Gandhari (wife of King Dhritarastra) belonged to the region.

                          After their defeat in the Mahabharata war, many of the kaurva descendants settled in the Kandhar region which was their maternal home. From there they gradually moved to what are currently known as Iraq and Saudi Arabia. In ancient times, Arab horses were well-known for their fine breed (Arvain Sanskrit signifies a horse). Being warriors, Kaurvas highly appreciated the well-bred horses of the region. That is why they named the region as Arvasthan (Land of Horses). Shiva worship was widespread in Afghanistan

                          There was a time when the entire region was replete with hundreds of Shiva temples celebrating Shiva – Parvati worship and abuzz with Shiv chants, prayers, legends and worship. Archaeological excavations in this region conducted by Sir Estine (an East India Company official) led to the recovery of uncountable shrines and inscriptions

                                Modern Drawing of Maps of world were largely done by Europeans.

                                many areas were wrongly included, annexed to suit their gains.

                                our claims are much recent .
