The various names of India


"What's in a name?" The famous quote from Shakespeare's world renowned 'Romeo and Juliet' talks about the little difference a name makes to things stating that a 'A rose by any other name would smell as sweet'.

Taking this into equation lets take a look at all the names the world has called India ever since it was discovered. From Ancient books to Independent India, India has been named and renamed numerous number of times often by travelers of the world.
In recent times, I have seen my friends fighting over these silly and nonsensical issues like why India should be called Bharat and not India as the word India means Independent Nation declared in August (Based on what they read in Whatsapp). 



Well for those guys just stop using whatsapp and call our country whatever you like whether it is India or Bharat or Hindustan, because at the end of day, all those names will still remain our 'Country'.
