For Bharat and Bharati

Fact about name “India”

Posted by संदीप नारायण शेळके on April 15, 2011

“Name ‘India’ came into being because outsiders could not

pronounce Sindhu and started calling ‘Indu’ instead.  ‘India’

name born out of incompetence.”

Bharat Mata

I’m not comfortable in following incompetent. Moreover that there isn’t any reason why should one follow outsider’s convenience. Let them call whatever but lets pledge to be perfect. We can correct the mistake and there is no need to stick to it. Lets throw away the slavery of thoughts and create our own.

Lets call it ‘BhaRata’ which means  “Devoted to light (against darkness) and knowledge”

Few insights:

  • Indian was a member of the race of people living in America when Europeans arrived
  • Indian is a native inhabitant of North America (see also Red Indian at red), Central or South America
  • India is the native place in terms of Europeans

More on this as and when time permits.

Jai Bharat!
