Hodge gave basis for the homogeneous co-ordinate rings of the Grassmannian
and its Schubert varieties in terms of standard monomials in the Plucker
co-ordinates. This clasical work of Hodge was extended to the generalized flag variety
and its Schubert varieties by Lakshmibai-Littelmann-Musili-Seshadri. We shall give
a survey talk on this generalization and will also relate many important algebraic
varieties to Schubert varieties.
