"From Persia to the Chinese Sea, from the icy regions of Siberia to the islands of Java and Borneo, from Oceania to Socotra, India has propagated her beliefs, her tales and her civilization. She has left indelible imprints on one-fourth of the human race in the course of a long succession of centuries."
"She has the right to reclaim in universal history the rank that ignorance has refused her for a long time and to hold her place amongst the great nations summarizing and symbolizing the spirit of Humanity."
Jagadguru Bharati Krishna Tirtha says: "Bharata, Bha means light and knowledge, and rata means devoted. Hence Bharata means devoted to light as against darkness. So Bharata is not the name of a mere geographical entity placed in some corner of the world and having its geographical, topographical and other limitation, Bharata stands for every individual soul that has this idea of light, the dedication to the light as against immersion in darkness.
So we speak of the light that God's creation of the world began with, and we think of the Light that India claims to be its chief aspiration, its chief, its most important and most valued goal..
The real truth about Indian history ... as denied to common Indians by the so called politically correct Government .
