    India is.......the Largest democracy in the world, the 6th largest country in the world AND one of the most ancient and living civilizations (at least 10, 000 years old).

    The name `India’ is derived from the River Indus, the valleys around which were the home of the early settlers. The Aryan worshippers referred to the river Indus as the Sindhu.

    The game of snakes & ladders was created by the 13th century poet saint Gyandev. It was originally called 'Mokshapat.' The ladders in the game represented virtues and the snakes indicated vices.

    b.. Mark Twain said:

    India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech,
    the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great
    grand mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most structive

    c.. French scholar Romain Rolland said:

    If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of
    living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the
    dream of existence, it is India.

    d.. Hu Shih, former Ambassador of China to USA said:

    "Many of the advances in the sciences
    that we consider today to have been made in Europe
    were in fact made in India centuries ago."

    - Grant Duff
    British Historian of India


    "India was the motherland of our race
    and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages.
    India was the mother of our philosophy,
    of much of our mathematics, of the ideals embodied in christianity... of self-government and democracy.
    In many ways, Mother India is the mother of us all."
    - Will Durant
    - American Historian 1885-1981

    CURRENT INFORMATION:

    -There are 3.22 Million Indians in America. 38% of Doctors in America are Indians. 12% of Scientists in America are Indians. 36% of NASA employees are Indians. 34% of MICROSOFT employees are Indians 28% of IBM employees are Indians 17% of INTEL employees are Indians 13% of XEROX employees are Indians

    -First democracy to elect a woman Prime Minister.
    India is the 7th nuclear power in the world
    India is the 5th largest economy in the world
    India is the largest democracy in the world
    India has the 2nd largest population in the world(could be a bad point)
    India is the 4th nation in the world to have developed/or developing a nuclear submarine
    India is the 5th nation in the world to be in the multi billion dollar space commerce business.
    India is the 4th nation in the world to develop(or nearly to) ICBM's(can travel up to 14,000km)
    India is the 3rd nation in the world, to be able to develop land based and sea based cruise missiles.

    TECHNOLOGICAL/SCIENTIFIC ACHIEVEMENTS
    - the technique of algorithm used in computer science today.
    - the science of algebra. (Indian's invented, Arabs took it when they invaded, and gave it to the then "primitive" Europeans)
    - the concept of zero - on which ultimately rests the binary code which has given us all software including the WWW through which
    you are accessing this site!
    - the technique of manufacturing crystal (sugar)cane sugar
    (the word sugar is derived from the Sanskrit term "Sharkara").
    - the making of camphor (MODERN chemists know how important this chemical is).
    - the making of tin (the technical English word for tin
    is Cassiterite which is said to have been derived from the Sanskrit term
    "Kasthira").
    -believe it or not, Kung Fu is a derivation of Yoga---taught to the Chinese by an Indian Bhuddist Monk known as Bodidharma (ask any Kung Fu Grand Master, or check the internet for yourself).
    -The earliest recorded use of copperware in India has been around 3000 B.C. the findings at Mohen-jo-daro and Harappa, bear this out The earliest documented observation of smelting of metals in India is by Greek Historians in the 4th Century B.C.

    When Europeans were only nomadic forest dwellers over 5000 years ago, Indians established Harappan culture in Sindhu Valley (Indus Valley Civilization)



    India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without
    ever having to send a single soldier across her border.

    All the above is just the TIP of the iceberg, the list could be endless.
    BUT, if we don't see even a glimpse of that great India in the India that
    we see today, it clearly means that we are not working up to our
    potential and that if we do, we could once again be an evershining and
    inspiring country setting abright path for rest of the world to follow.


    Stay tuned for much more facts to follow.

    They didn't call themselves Indian - you can't force an identity on a people who were not even aware of that identity. ANd they didn't look anything like todays Oriya, Telegu or Maratha.

    5000 years ago, before the Vedic invasions, most of modern India (i.e. the Peninsula, everything beyond and excluding the Indus) was 100% God's own country:

    Those ancient traditions have been absorbed into the mainstream newly minted Hindu identity.

    Post started with a bullshit, ended with a bullshit.
    LoL

    Its actually a myth that India has NEVER invaded any foreign country. Actually they did. Lets not go back to 10000 years; just drift to the past 67 years.

    Also, it will be good to keep in mind whatInvasion actually means.An invasion is a military offensive in which large parts of the armed forces of one geopolitical entity aggressively enter territory controlled by another such entity, generally with the objective of either conquering, liberating or re-establishing control or authority over a territory, forcing the partition of a country, altering the established government or gaining concessions from said government, or a combination thereof
    1948

    Under Operation Polo, Indian Armed Forces invaded the State of Hyderabad and overthrew its Nizam, annexing it to the State of Indian Union.
    Operation Polo
    [​IMG]

    For those who contest saying it was a princely state; chew on this - Monaco is a princely state. If a foreign force was to cross the border and conquer it - will it not be an invasion ?

    It was a clear case of conquering.

    1961

    India annexed Portuguese India which included the enclaves of Goa, Daman and Diu, and Dadra and Nagar Haveli.

    Conquering aspect of the Invasion definition applies.

    1971

    After Pakistan launched a pre-emptive attack against India after building of tensions; India responded with air strikes.This marked the official start of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. Prime Minister Indira Gandhi ordered the immediate mobilisation of troops and launched the full-scale invasion. This involved Indian forces in a massive coordinated air, sea, and land assault. Indian Air Force started flying sorties against Pakistan from midnight. The main Indian objective on the western front was to prevent Pakistan from entering Indian soil. There was no Indian intention of conducting any major offensive into West Pakistan.
    via Indo-Pakistani War of 1971

    Here, since India liberated East Pakistan and forced the partition of Pakistan; it tantamounts to invasion.

    It is important to note that the principle ofIt's not an invasion if your motives are goodis not correct. So even though it can be argued that India had sincere motives, it doesn't change the fact that the above mentioned incidents were an Invasion.


    Edit: Oops. Forgot about Kashmir.
