India, that is Bharath

Vande Bharata Mataram

India’s official name is Bharat and this is accorded equal primacy as the word India in the Constitution. In fact the First Clause of the Constitution begins with the words,
'India that is Bharat'

The official Sanskrit name for India is Bharat."

Bharat : meaning
"Bha" means Light and Knowledge,
"rata" means “Devoted”.
Bharat means "devoted to light as against darkness". The name "Bharat" was symbolic in nature revealing the fact that the whole country was highly enlightened spiritually.
There is a general mis-conception that India (or to be more accurate, Bharat) as a nation did not exist until the British brought hundreds of princely states under central rule. This is false and historically inaccurate those of you who have read History would be aware that Samrat Ashok’s kingdom probably had the largest expanse of land of any kingdom in ancient times and of course included almost all of the Indian sub-continent i.e. India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and parts of neighbouring states such as Nepal and Afghanistan
