Some of the following facts may be known to you. These facts were recently published in a German magazine, which deals with WORLD HISTORY FACTS ABOUT INDIA.
1. India never invaded any country in her last 1000 years of history.

2. India invented the Number system. Zero was invented by Aryabhatta.

3. The world’s first University was established in Takshila in 700BC. More than 10,500 students from all over the world studied more than 60 subjects. The University of Nalanda built in the 4th century BC was one of the greatest achievements of ancient India in the field of education.
4. According to the Forbes magazine, Sanskrit is the most suitable language for computer software.

5. Ayurveda is the earliest school of medicine known to humans.
6. Although western media portray modern images of India as poverty striken and underdeveloped through political corruption, India was once the richest empire on earth.

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


(former Chinese ambassador to USA)

ALL OF 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 a bright path for rest of the world to follow.
I hope you enjoyed it and work
towards the welfare of INDIA.

  1. यह किसी भी सच्चे भारतीय के लिये बहुत उत्साहित करने वाली सामग्री है। यह बहुत दिनों से अंगरेजी में ही इधर-उधर घूम रही है। समय आ गया है कि इसे अब हिन्दी में भी प्रस्तुत किया जाय। आप यदि इसे हिन्दी में परिवर्तित करके अपने चिट्ठे पर डालें तो बहुत अच्छा हो!

  2. जी अनुनाद जी, यह एक ई-मैल है जो कल मेरे पास आई थी । मैंने इसे तभी पोस्ट कर की सोच लिया । मैं इसे हिन्दी मे रुपान्तरित कर ही रही थी कि आपकी प्रतिक्रिया आ गई ।
    धन्यवाद

  3. हिंदी ब्लॉग्स में पहली बार एक ही पोस्ट में ऐसी ज्ञानवर्धक सामग्री पढ़ कर गर्व होना स्वाभाविक है। सच मानना, इसे पढ़कर अपने आप को बौना सा महसूस कर रहा हूं – इतने महान देश की नागरिकता छोड़ कर! फिर भी भारत में जन्म लेने का गौरव तो प्राप्त है।
    जय भारत!

  4. Nice to know these facts but lets not be proud of them all.

    The co-founder of Sun Microsystems Vinod Khosla chose not to stay in
    The third richest man on the world – Lakshmi Mittal is an NRI and not an Indian Citizen. Why are those 36% scientists working in NASA?

    None of the above thought about staying in India and contribute to its success.

    Let’s not be proud of them all. I am proud of India’s culture and heritage, I am proud of India’s ability to produce brains like these. But somehow we all are selfish and are not ready to do any thing about development of this country, Lets try to change thin and contribute to India’s success.

  5. Remember HIndu=Muslim=Sikh=Christian=Parsi
    they together make the country INDIA.

    NO hindi, english, tamil, telgu,punjabi, etc

    NO Schedule caste/creed, No OBC

    these division are spoiling us making to go again in the darkness of undeveloped nation.

    COME UNITE AND MAKE OUR COUNTRY THE BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.

    NOTHING CAN BE DONE BY SAYING ITS THE TIME TO WORK NOW.
