“India”. What does that mean? It doesn’t mean anything. The concept of a nation must sink into everybody’s mind because nation is just an idea. When this idea burns through our mind, sinks into our heart and our passion is risen towards that, then you have a real nation, otherwise nation is just in the paper.Bharat describes our culture. Essentially it is the sameness(it's not language, religion, race but our culture) of people which makes a nation.

Bharat means – bha – ra – ta. Bhava means sensation because our whole experience of life is sensory. What we see, hear, smell, taste and touch are different types of sensations. So sensation is the basis of our experience right now. Bha means sensation out of which comes emotion. Ra…ra means raga or the tune. The tune is not ours, the existence has already set the tune. Now we have to just find the rhythm which is the thala. So we called this nation Bha-ra-ta before it changed to India.

If we drive fifty kilometers, people look different, wear differently, eat differently, speak different languages, different political entities, everything is different.But what kept us together for so long? No nation on the planet has stayed together for so long.So what is it that makes this nation? It's our culture.....
