oldest civilizations of the world, and once one of the most
prosperous places on earth, India has made some of the historians
marvel at the wonder that it was. If one billion people of
this country, with their two billion hands, awake and arise, the
course of history will change.
The people of this land, which was known earlier as Bharat and
Hindustan, exhibited striking potential on nearly all fronts -
from the spiritual to the material, from mathematics to
medicine and from philosophy to trade and commerce.
