Though 11 countries currently make up the region, the history of each country is intertwined with all the others. Southeast Asia is a diverse region. There are many ethnic groups in this part of the world. Similarly different religions are also practiced here. Buddhism, Islam and Christianity are the state religions for different countries. India has maintained cordial relations with these countries.This book takes India and each country of this region as a separate chapter in which some main topics like history, geography, economy, culture and tradition etc. of the country have been given elaborately.
