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 a bright path for rest of the world to follow.

      This is a very enlightening lens you have so deligently produced. Anand Giridharadas has written a very compelling book titled "India Calling: An Intimate Portrait Of A Nations Remaking" to be published in early 2011.

      it is rubbish to say that " i am pround to be indian". Are people born in other countries ashamed because of there birth place. Saying i am true indian, american, pakistani is all crap. humanity is what matters where ever u r born and where ever u live.

      and do these people, the one u mentioned above keep singing this indian-ness crap. it was actually good "foreign education" or foreign companies that made them capable and provided them opportunity whether in india or abroad.

      india would not have been invaded, if the kings were not corrupt. It is curruption that is responsible for current state of india weather in past or present. but future is in our hands. so instead if singing the crap like i am proud to be indian, do something that stops corruption. this will and can only solve everyone's problems.

      And, i am an indian, but i am not yet proud of being born here. So called multi-Cultures, and multi-religions and multi blah blah does nothing for anyone. this is nothing for anyone in particular to be proud of thing.....

      Jai Maa Bharati!!!!!!!!!!!

      Proud to be Bharatiya or Hindusthani.

      India is the word given by Foreigners to us. SO I don't accept it.

      Definition of Hindusthan in Barhaspatya Shastram

      हिमालयठसमारभà¥à¤¯ यावद à¤à¤à¤¦à¥ सरà¥à¤µà¤°à¤®!

      तठदà¥à¤µ निरà¥à¤®à¤¿à¤¤à¤ दà¥à¤¶à¤® हिनà¥à¤¦à¥à¤¸à¥à¤¥à¤¾à¤¨à¤® पà¥à¤°à¤à¤à¥à¤·à¤¤à¥ !!

      - बारà¥à¤¹à¤¸à¥à¤ªà¤¤à¥à¤¯ शासà¥à¤¤à¥à¤°à¤

      ( विषà¥à¤£à¥à¤ªà¥à¤°à¤¾à¤£ )

      The word Hindusthan doesn't denote a particular religion.

      Plz call our country as Bharat or Hindusthan.

      Thanks for creating such an effort.
