The Portuguese were the pioneers in finding new routes. They being indomitable adventurer sailors started navigation in the unknown sea to discover a new sea route to India. The Portuguese sailor Bartolomeu Diaz could reach the Cape of Good Hope, situated at the southernmost corner of South Africa, in 1487 A.D. It was only after ten years that another sailor Vasco-da Gama, following Bartholomeu Diaz, arrived at Cali cut port in India in 1498 A.D. Thus the long-sought sea route was discovered between India and western countries. This new communication ushered a new era not only in the history of India but of the whole world.

SEBA Class 9 History (Social Science) Chapter 5: Beginning of the British Administration in Assam
The rise and fall of a dynasty or a kingdom isn’t a new phenomenon in history. Not a single dynasty that ruled for many centuries is hardly found in the pages of history. The Ahoms ruled in Assam from the early thirteen centuries to the early nineteenth century in Assam which is rare in history. Siu-ka-pha was the founder of the Ahom dynasty in Assam. The rule of the Ahom dynasty came to an end as a result of the Burmese invasion. Occupation of Assam by the Burmese dragged the British to Assam. Already the Burmese had occupied Arakan, Manipur and Cachar and finally, occupation of Assam was challenged by the British. Burmese penetration of Assam and the neighbouring states posed a threat to the British in the region. To check the Burmese for further aggression led to the Anglo-Burmese war of 1824-1826 AD.
