Rename India as Bharatha
This petition had 15 supporters
India - is a term coined by outsiders. It does not have a meaning of its own. Ironically, we have a very meaningful name that reflects the idea of our civilization - Bharatha.
"Bhaa" signifies light(equivalent in usage for Knowledge)
We can see similar usages in
"Bhaa"nu -Meaning Sun (Light source)
"Bhaa"skara - Meaning Sun (Light source)
"Bha"rga - Meaning Sun (Light source- this is from Gayatri mantra)
"Ra-tha" Meaning being engaged in or in search of.
So, A land where its people are engaged in assimilating and/or are in search of knowledge is called Bharatha.
The whole idea of this nation is to seek - Bharatha is a land of seekers. The name instills in us the purpose of our very life. Bharat is an accepted name along with India as per the constitution but is not given its true status. When we have such a profound and meaningful name, why should we carry a meaningless name like India?
