The Mughal Empire of India was ruled by a minority of Sunni Muslims, though most of the Empire took part in the polytheistic Hinduism faith. Because of this deep religious division inside its own empire, the Mughals had to focus more than any of the other two empires on how to keep things in harmony at home.

A Latter day Saint can not have an abortion performed except in cases of rape, incest, the life of the mother is in danger, or a severely defective foetus that cannot survive birth.Hinduism teaches that abortion, like any other act of violence, thwarts a soul in its progress toward God. Hindu Scriptures and traditions have from the earliest of times condemned the practice of abortion, except when the life of the mother is in danger. Hinduism teaches that the foetus is a living, conscious person needing and deserving protection. Hindu refers to abortion as garha-batta (womb killing) and bhroona hathya (killing the undeveloped soul).Islam

Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

Fredrich Nietzche once said “The individual has always struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the the privilege of owning yourself.” In my opinion, I believe this quote is true. Many people feel like they have to be a certain way for society to like them. When in reality, they want to be true to to themselves, but they are fearful of judgement.

The Dell Theory of Conflict Prevention
This theory is actually an extension of an already established theory with the name of Golden Arches Theory of Conflict Prevention. The basic postulates of this theory outline that no two countries will probably engage into war if they are part of the major supply chain. Friedman presented the example of Dell because it runs one of the major global supply chain networks in the world.
This theory basically outlines that due to economic inter-dependence of the countries with each other, it is hardly a chance that these countries will actually engage into war. Global organizations maintain a diversified and well-oiled supply chain in order to ensure a
