Official name of India is ‘bharat’, derived from the legendary king Bharata(ancestor of lord Krishna), who defeated all kings of ancient world and brought whole India under one rule. The entire stretch of land from Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgistan, Turkmenistan, Pakistan, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia was the part of his kingdom.
  
When the west were living as nomadic tribes in forest caves, eating off the meat of animals, Land of India nurtured a great civilization with bountiful palaces, silk clothes, rich luxuries, and seers singing soothing mantras, meditating for years and writing wonderful divine theories/mantras in Sanskrit. These genius spiritual scientists influenced our culture, philosophy, psychology, art and way of living life. They were the first to tell theories on this universe, medicine, mathematics, science etc, all of which we take for granted today. Now let us see how the theories of these remarkable conscious sages makes all Indian proud of their motherland. In this article, I will first discuss the glories of ancient India and then some of the achievements of modern India. Let us start then
  1)    India is the world oldest, largest, continuous civilization which never invaded any country in the recorded history of 10000 years.  
2)    Varanasi- World most spiritual city, is also the world most ancient, continuously inhabited city, that attracts devotees from all around the world.

  3)    India is not only the world’s oldest democracy but also the world's largest democracy. Though democracy existed even during the era of Ramayana and Mahabharata, Democracy of India is recorded in western historical records from the times of king ashoka. Why? Because Vatican says only bible is true, rest everything is mythology. ‘Vaishali’ city in Bihar is famous for democracy. In 4th century BC, King Nabhaga abdicated his throne after being accused of Human Rights violation. Citizens declared themselves a Democratic Republic (Prajatantrik Ganarajya).
4)    All Indians must know how chanakya united all Indian kings to fight against the immoral invading Alexander army. Check out the video below
        <>
Alexander before leaving Persia for India encouraged his army saying that they are going to loot endless wealth of golden India, and what they have seen in Persian riches, is nothing compared to riches of India.  
Seeing the strength (Army) of united India, Alexander pissed in his pants (or whatever the apparel he was wearing) and ran away like a rat running away from a cat.

His dream of looting India remained a dream, thanks to chanakya, the best diplomat of all times.
  5)    Indians are very proud of Aryabhatta, spiritual sage who founded zero. When I hear zero, the first thing that comes to my mind is joke of peter Russell’s (Indian born Canadian comedian). Check out below video
        <>
Beside zero, Aryabhatta laid out many advanced mathematical concepts, and hence is rightly known as father of mathematics. When the west was using fingers to count one and two, he correctly predicted the circular orbit of earth round the sun.  
  6)    Takshila in punjab(700 BC) was the world oldest university. More than 10,000 students from different parts of the world came to India to study more than 60 subjects. Nalanda of bihar(400 BC) was the world largest university.

  7)    Sanskrit is the mother of all the European languages. According to Forbes magazine dated July 1987, Sanskrit is the world most perfect language and the most suitable language for computers. To quote, 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 grandmother of tradition”
8)    Ayurveda is oldest medicinal science of the world. Charaka is the world oldest doctor and so, is known as the father of medicine. Sushruta is world oldest surgeon. Three millenniums ago, he performed  complicated surgeries like cataract, urinary stones, artificial limbs, cesareans,  fractures, plastic surgery and even brain surgery. Usage of anesthesia and up to 100 surgerical operations using 125 surgical equipments is well documented in his book “Sushruta Samhita”.  There are abundant of other ancient books on physiology, embryology, anatomy, metabolism, etiology, digestion, immunity and geneitcs. These books can be found in bhandarkar oriental institute and patanjali yogpeeth.

  9)    India was the richest country (30% of world GDP) of the world until the British invaded India (1700 AD) and looted away India wealth. Sunny climate, unmatched fertility, vast mineral resources and world-wide exports made India the favorites among adventurers and conquerors. Fall in Indian wealth was after the invasion by tyrant mughal, british and portuguese rulers.

  10)    India was the only source of gold, diamonds, perals and other precious stones in ancient times. After demolishing somnath temple, Mohammad ghazni looted immeasurable golden wealth after razing down the shiv-lingam. Even today, Kohinoor diamond (weighing 106 carats) of lord Krishna stolen by British queen Victoria is the most precious diamond of the world.
        Why I am proud to be an indian
First is Kohinoor diamond, second is Crown of Queen Victoria and third is a thief who stole our lord Krishna diamond. What the heck? She stole the diamond (Kohinoor) of India most revered deity (Lord Krishna) and she calls herself a queen.... Disgusting Angrez chor...
  11)    India was the first to formulate an art of Navigation and built the first airplanes and ships. English word Navy is derived from Sanskrit word 'Nou and Navigation from Sanskrit word ‘NAVGATIH’.
12)    India is the founder of maths and science. Bhaskacharya was the first to propose the time taken by earth to orbit sun as 365.258756484 days. Budhayana first proposed value of PI and Pythagoras theorem. Algebra, place value system, Quadratic equations, trigonometry and calculus, large numbers up to infinity, everything came from India. Prof. Jagdish Bose is the pioneer of wireless communication. Indians sages were the first to propose the age of universe in billions of years, a fact accepted by modern scientists. Scientist of the century, Einstein said “We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made!” I have written many articles on this topic. Some of the articles are
    Science in Hinduism-Gravitational force and repulsive force
Science in Hinduism-Einstein Theory of relativity 
Science in Hinduism - Speed of light
Science in Hinduism-Pythagoras or Baudhayana theorem
 
Science in Hinduism-Motion of earth around sun

Science in Hinduism-Place value and Decimal number system

World oldest artificial lake was built during the times of Chandragupta maurya in Saurashtra by king Rudradaman. Essence of Indian Arts and architecture can be well seen in the beautiful carvings in the Ajanta and ellora caves, khajuraho temple, tallest monolithic statue at Shravanabelagola, konark temple, meenakshi temple etc. Now you may hear shit like khajuraho is a sex or porno temple and so on... But do you know the symbolic meaning of khajurah temple and that tantric sex is a way to raise your kundalini(consciousness)(Will write an article on this topic soon)
  
      14)    Many games including Chess (Shataranja), polo and snakes & ladders were invented in India.

  15)    All philosophical religions were born in India. 25% of the world population follows Hinduism or it offshoot religions (Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism). India has more number of muslims than any other non-Islamic country and so, is known as the most diverse country. Hinduism is the only religion to survive the tyranny of invading colonial forces whereas the rest of the cultures like aztecs, Sumerians, incas, Persians etc perished in the pages of history. Mark twain said In religion, India is the only millionaire. The One land that all men desire to see and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for all the shows of all the rest of the globe combined”
      16)    India is the birthplace of music and dance. Classical dance forms like Kathakali, Bharathnatyam, Kuchipudi, Dandya is an integral part of our culture.

Given the population and talent pool, we can have ten times more entrepreneurs than America. For a change, We need to generate more dhoni’s, ambani’s, aishwarya’s,kalam’s etc. Only then we can lighten up our country like this

    Conclusion:
Well, the list goes on. It is not simply possible to write all other achievements in a single article. Yeah, there are many negative points about India, influenced by the corrupt politicians and faulty administration, but I guess we should not be talking about the negative points of our country on the eve of Indian Independence Day. So, I conclude by encouraging you to celebrate this 66th  year of Indian independence with great joy and happiness. Salute the national flag and spirit of India and be proud of being an Indian. Share sweets, love, and awareness among your fellow Indians.
Wishing all Indians over the world a very happy Independence Day
