I Love My India

The name India is derived from Indus, which originates from the Old Persian word Hinduš. The latter term stems from the Sanskrit word Sindhu, which was the historical
local appellation for the Indus River. The ancient Greeks referred to the Indians as Indoi, which
translates as "the people of the Indus".The geographical term Bharat, which is recognised by the Constitution of India as an official name for the country, is used by many Indian languages in its variations.The eponym of Bharat is Bharata, a theological figure that Hindu scriptures describe
as a legendary emperor of ancient India. Hindustan was originally a Persian word that meant "Land of the Hindus"; prior to 1947, it referred to a region that encompassed northern India and
Pakistan. It is occasionally used to solely denote India in its entirety.
