    I love my India, because we are many different ethnic groups, cultures, religions, languages, etc under one banner! The Indian banner, and our ancient culture and history str awesome.

    I love USA, because we are also made up of many ethnic groups and united under one banner! The American banner! And of cause, USA is the strongest nation/political entity humans have produced. And is pretty much the nation you dont want to **** with.

    By culture I mean in Europe... most people cares for themselves only... majority of the peoples do not know their neighbours even after living together for 10 years

    But in my country... The whole town is like a family... Everybody is part of that family

    I love UK for their Justice... There would hardly be a better country in the world than UK when it comes to providing Justice

    I can write a whole book and still not write enough about it.

    Here are some quotes that help sum it:

    There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won’t go. For me, India is such a place. When I first visited, I was stunned by the richness of the land, by its lush beauty and exotic architecture, by its ability to overload the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes, and sounds. It was as if all my life I had been seeing the world in black and white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolor.
    Keith Bellows, Vice-President, National Geographic Society


    India was the motherland of our race, and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages: she was the mother of our philosophy; mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics; mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity; mother, through the village community, of self-government and democracy. Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all.
    Will Durant, in The Case for India

    The Portuguese, Dutch and English have been for a long time year after year, shipping home the treasures of India in their big vessels. We Germans have been all along been left to watch it. Germany would do likewise, but hers would be treasures of spiritual knowledge.
    Henrich Heine

    Ancient civilizations of Greece, Egypt and Rome have all disappeared from this world, but the elements of our civilization still continue. Although world-events have been inimical to us for centuries, there is something in our civilization which has withstood these onslaughts.
    Muhammad Iqbal

    With one foot grounded in time-honored traditions and the other fervently striding into the entrepreneurial e-age, India embraces diversity passionately as few other countries on earth could.
    Lonely Planet (Travel guide book)

    The Indian way of life provides the vision of the natural, real way of life. We veil ourselves with unnatural masks. On the face of India are the tender expressions which carry the mark of the Creator's hand.
    George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwrite

    This is indeed India! the land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendor and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of a hundred nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of tradition, whose yesterdays bear date with the mouldering antiquities of the rest of the nations — the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for alien prince and alien peasant, for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor, bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the globe combined. Even now, after the lapse of a year, the delirium of those days in Bombay has not left me, and I hope never will.
    Mark Twain, in Following the Equator (1897), Ch. XXXVIII

    With her everything is on a giant scale — even her poverty; no other country can show anything to compare with it. And she has been used to wealth on so vast a scale that she has to shorten to single words the expressions describing great sums.
    Mark Twain, in Following the Equator (1897), Ch. XLIII




    In truth, words are not enough. You have to BE in India to experience it.

    "You dont simply visit India. You experience it." - Barack Obama

    I like my country because it is a continuously-differentiable manifold! The planet Earth! I don't believe in a country with borders.
