    How would you define an 'Indian'?

    Would you define an Indian by his historical roots or by his living deeds in the present?

    What differentiates these two types of Indians from each other?

    Which would you prefer to be?

    Anyone who thinks he's an Indian is an Indian. Technically, if you are a citizen of India; you are an Indian.

    name India is derived from the river Indus or Sindhu.......as this country was seemed by the Britishers/moghul invaders , near the great Indus valley which had popular flourished civilization at that time......Word Bharat is the original word used to reference India since ancient times and is named after the mythological or real(doubt) Shakuntala's son bharat...after his brave deeds.....and hindustan term was coined by mahatma gandhi to just tell the muslim community residing here that this country is also theirs and is a combination of 2 words....
    hindu
    (vernacular word)+stan(persian word)...
    however don't know the exact documented source ..but 2 years ago....a lawyer told me that constitutionally only India and Bharat are the accepted terms to describe our nation...........there's no mention of the word hindustan and hence it's probable that this word has been culminated from the political situations that existed at that time and is used still to.....

    If you plant a mango seed brought from US in India , will you continue to send the mangoes to America simply for the fact of its origin? For me, wherever the plant flourishes defines its identity. If it is in my garden, it's mine and if it's in yours, it's yours. And so goes for any identity be it community, society, state or country.
