I am a History teacher from Brazil and need to know who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi (Great person), Indira Gandhi and Rajeev Gandhi in India. Who is Sonia Gandhi? I heard she is an Italian. Is it true? I also need to know is it true that India has been invaded by many people such as Aryans (5000 years ago), Mongols (4000 years ago), Romans (2000 years ago), Turks (1000 years ago), Afghans (800 years ago), Mughals (700 years go), Dutch & Portuguese (500 years ago) and Finally By British (275 years ago).

What is Kashmir, Haidrabad, Assam, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka Issue and also let me know how much Indian part is occupied by China?

I will be grateful if some one can give clarifications about above points. I have been writing a History book and one of the chapter is related to India.

I also heard there were some serious problems in some part of India for Temple and Mosque and also some mishaps in one of the state. I think it was Gujarat.

I also heard that Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism religions were born in India. Is it true? I also want to know Aryans came from Germany or Iran because I am totally confused from different people with different story. What is cast system in India?

I also heard that some terrorist want to destroy Taj Mahal. The eight wornder of the world. Can anyone tell me who constructed Taj Mahal and where it is located? I am planning to visit Taj during Christmas holidays.
