01. BHARATH, INDIA, HINDUSTHAN or ?
Still working with contents; not final yet.

Bharath is the traditional name of this land. Culturally and historically also, Bharath is the name.

'Bharath' finds repeated mention in Rig Veda.

Mahabharatha:
Young Bharatha conquered and ruled the entire region ..., from sea to Himalaya and as Chakravarthy (Emperor) Bharatha ruled Bharathavarsha, the Land of Bharatha.

The very name Maha Bharath simply means the 'Great Bharath'. And note that it is Maha Bharath and NOT Maha India!

The Pandavas of Mahabharatha were born in the Bharatha's dynasty.

Vishnu Purana:
"The country (varsham) that lies north of the ocean and south of the snowy mountains is called Bharatham; there dwells the descendants of Bharatha."

SIND, ZIND, IND, HIND ...:
Peoples of neighbouring countries, like the Arabs, Greeks, etc., living to the West of Bharath, linked Bharath to the River SIND. Words and names like India, Indu, Ind, Zind, Hind, Hindu, Hindu-Sthan, Indhu-Sthan, Hindi, ... orginated from this 'SIND', perpetuated by outsiders but were unknown to the people of Bharath.

"INDIA, ALSO KNOWN AS BHARATH, ..."
It is strange and most unfortunate that this great, ancient nation shoud have anything to do with the foreign name 'India'.

It is ridiculous to read 'India, also known as Bharath', in the Preamble of the 1950 Constitution of this Republic.

It is still a puzzle to see how Bharath of a such long history, culture and civilisation, came to be known by the name, India, used by foreigners for a few centuries.

Perhaps they could have written in the Constitution as, 'Bharath, which, was also known as 'INDIA' for a short period ...'

It is still more puzzling to see no serious effort is being taken to rectify this gross mistake and insult.
