India got Independence in 1947 & the way India got it was a Non-violent protest started by Mahatma Gandhi. There are only few countries in the world which were able to do this. Although there are many who contributed in it, but the biggest contribution was of the “Father of our nation”, MAHATMA GANDHI.

India was the richest country in 17th Century, at the time of British rule. Columbus knew it & he set off to find India & founded America by mistake.

      I'd have appreciated it better written with better grammar - as the adverts for English apples told us back in the 70's, "Polish up yer English" (colloquial).

      Additionally you've probably got more cricket players than anyone else! When I was a museum steward at Lord's cricket ground - for three seasons - the greatest number of visitors was from the sub-continent.

      Seriously I think you could have made a bit more of this as an informative Hub-page without the 'plug', it reads like an advert for India Tourism. Like the pictures, though.
