Quotes about  India  .
We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made. 

Albert Einstein. 

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. 

Mark Twain. 

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

French scholar Romain Rolland. 

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

Hu Shih

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. 
I hope you enjoyed it and work towards the welfare of  INDIA  . 

Say proudly, I AM AN INDIAN.

Beena G,
Though the title was good, but the content was negligible.
How come ,a very seasoned mind forget that Bhagat Singh,Sukh Dev and Rajguru had nothing to do with successful PIOs, but the landless, helpless and oppressed countrymen.
Isn't it a great paradox that Bhagat Singh was a staunch socialist, but he is indirectly being compared with proponents of capitalism.
Hope, you would re-read meaning of Mera Rang De Basanti Chola !
In simple words, I was expecting some thing pertinent to the topic.
