The Relevance of NAM in To-day’s World
The NAM or Non-Aligned Movement as an ideology emerged close to the end of the colonial period and the end of the Second World War. It was founded by five post-colonial leaders—Josip Tito of Socialist Yugoslavia (former), Jawaharlal Nehru of India, Dr Sukarno of Indonesia, Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, and Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana—in the Bandung Conference of 1955. It was formalised by the signing of the Treaty of Brijuni the following year.
The Non-Aligned Movement itself was based on the idea of neutrality, in a world that was breaking up into two power blocs of communism (led by Soviet Union) and capitalism (led by United States). Its whole idea was to help the nations that were still colonies under their western masters to get their independence and then, help them with their overall development. These two were…

Look at how English literature originated on “Parchments of the Times Past”!
A Brief History of English Literature
English literature is the study of literature written in the English language, irrespective of the origin of the work produced. The most notable English writers that we all know are William Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Jane Austen, and Arthur Conan Doyle, among many others. To-day, English has become a universal language and there are many writers of the language in countries other than Britain.
The origin of English literature goes as far back as 5th-7th centuries CE. It was at this time that the Anglo-Saxon settlers brought the English language to the British Isles, from a region now known to be western Germany. The English language is a West Germanic language that originated from Anglo-Frisian dialects. This displaced the Celtic language, which had been prevalent here till then. “Beowulf”, an earliest form of literature, was considered to have…
