    Sri Lanka (UK: /sri ˈlæŋkə, ʃriː -/, US: /- ˈlɑːŋkə/ (listen); Sinhala: ශ්‍රී ලංකා, romanized:  (IPA: [ʃriː laŋkaː]); Tamil: இலங்கை, romanized:  (IPA: [ilaŋɡaj])), formerly known as Ceylon and officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, is an island country in South Asia. It lies in the Indian Ocean, southwest of the Bay of Bengal, and southeast of the Arabian Sea; it is separated from the Indian subcontinent by the Gulf of Mannar and the Palk Strait. Sri Lanka shares a maritime border with India and the Maldives. Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte is its legislative capital, and Colombo is its largest city and financial centre.

    Sri Lanka has a population of around 22 million (2020) and is a multinational state, home to diverse cultures, languages, and ethnicities. The Sinhalese are the majority of the nation's population. The Tamils, who are a large minority group, have also played an influential role in the island's history. Other long established groups include the Moors, the Burghers, the Malays, the Chinese, and the indigenous Vedda.[14]

    Sri Lanka's documented history goes back 3,000 years, with evidence of prehistoric human settlements that dates back at least 125,000 years.[15] The earliest known Buddhist writings of Sri Lanka, known collectively as the Pāli canon, date to the fourth Buddhist council, which took place in 29 BCE.[16][17] Also called the , or the , Sri Lanka's geographic location and deep harbours have made it of great strategic importance, from the earliest days of the ancient Silk Road trade route to today's so-called maritime Silk Road.[18][19][20] Because its location made it a major trading hub, it was already known to both Far Easterners and Europeans as long ago as the Anuradhapura period (377 BC–1017 AD). During a period of great political crisis in the Kingdom of Kotte, the Portuguese arrived in Sri Lanka and sought to control the island's maritime trade, with a part of Sri Lanka subsequently becoming a Portuguese possession. After the Sinhalese-Portuguese war, the Dutch and the Kingdom of Kandy took control of those areas. The Dutch possessions were then taken by the British, who later extended their control over the whole island, colonising it from 1815 to 1948. A national movement for political independence arose in the early 20th century, and in 1948, Ceylon became a dominion. The dominion was succeeded by the republic named Sri Lanka in 1972. Sri Lanka's more recent history was marred by a 26-year civil war, which began in 1983 and ended decisively in 2009, when the Sri Lanka Armed Forces defeated the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.[21]

    Sri Lanka is a developing country, ranking 73rd on the Human Development Index. It is the highest-ranked South Asian nation in terms of development and has the second-highest per capita income in South Asia; however, the ongoing economic crisis has resulted in the collapse of the currency, rising inflation, and a humanitarian crisis due to a severe shortage of essentials. It has also led to an eruption of street protests, with citizens successfully demanding that the president and the government step down.[22] The island has had a long history of engagement with modern international groups: it is a founding member of the SAARC and a member of the United Nations, the Commonwealth of Nations, the G77, and the Non-Aligned Movement.

    The primary reason that Sri Lanka has never been a part of India is that until British colonial subjugation of the subcontinent, there hadn’t been a single nation called India. The Indian subcontinent was made up of a number of states ruled by princes and kings. The island of Lanka itself was not a single nation, but made up of at least three kingdoms at the point of British invasion. So while at various times parts of Lanka had been subjugated by Indian invaders, and Indian royalty married into Lankan royal families, they didn’t count themselves as Indian, because there was no such thing as I

    A Bit funny question -

    Why not asked why Russia or China, Nepal or Bhutan, Myanmar are not parts of India? They are just around the border, but why Sri Lanka.

    India is just another country, and Sri Lanka too same.

    But having business and personal relationship with 1000s of Indians in last 30 years, what their mind set was and is - Sri Lanka is part of India. And will take it as one of our states soon.

    I think people - first - who asked this question should respect the countries and not just India owns all.

    Why should Sri Lanka be a part of india in the 1st place?

    Its has never been and never will be.

    They are 2 different countries who kept a close relationship with each other, and will remain so.

    Even the ancient Indian literature (Ramayan) confirms that long time back (10000 years?) Sri Lanka was ruled as a separate nation by a different king (Ravana).

    Just because there are cultural similarities and geographical proximity, and inter marriages amoung the nobility of the countries, one can not ‘assume' that they have been one nation in the past. If one entertains that argument, then they could also

    The answer is very simple. Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) had been an independent and sovereign country which always had its own ruler.

    True Sri Lanka was ruled by a number of invaders and by 3 European countries but it was never been a part of India though India had a major influence over Sri Lanka.

    If the question is asked in terms of the recent history…. i.e. why Sri Lanka did not become a part of India when both India and Sri Lanka became independent from Briton after world war 2; that was because India and Sri Lanka were managed as two separate colonies by the British and not linked as one single administrative units. So the struggle for indepedence was vs two separate colonial centers. Naturally they became independent as two separate nations.

    If the question is asked in terms of long term history…from ancient times; Sri Lanka was always part of the Indian subcontinent and Indian cult

    Well historically there was no one “India” until it was all United by the colonizers. India was divided into many kingdoms, some more powerful than others, which is why some kingdoms spanned most of India. Just like that the Sinhala kingdom was its own kingdom. They are descendents of Indians and they speak an indo-aryan language, but obviously Sri Lanka is not apart of India. But the legend goes Vijaya, either from Bengal or Gujarat, sailed to Sri Lanka along with his crew of 500, and established the Sinhala kingdom, which lasted into the 1800s. They are said to be the ancestors of the modern

    Well, that is mostly because of colonialism. You see, the Portuguese and the Dutch both ruled the large parts of the island but managed to capture just small parts if India. Then the British came and captured the entire Indian subcontinent except Nepal and Bhutan. Then, they captured Sri Lanka from the Dutch. The British always treated Sri Lanka as a separate territory. Both India and Sri Lanka got their independence one year apart, India gained her independence in 1947 and Sri Lanka gained his independence in 1948. The British did not made Sri Lanka a part of India because they knew that the
