I Point To India


Max Muller,a German philologist  was invited by Cambridge University to give lecture to British candidates  preparing for Indian civil service,he spoke,

…What i feel convinced of, and hope of convince you, is that sanksrit language, if studied in right spirit, is full of human interests, full of lessons which even Greek could never teach us, a subject worthy to occupy the  leisure, and more than the lesiure, of every Indian civil servant.

If i were to look over the whole world to find out the country most richly endowed with all the wealth, power and beauty and the nature can bestow- in some parts a very paradise on earth – i should point to India.If i were asked under  what sky human mind has developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found the solutions of some of them which well deserve the attention  even of  those studied Plato and Kent – i should point to India

An Example For Rewriting The History


East India Company or English East India Company is a trading company which established in 1600.It came to india to mainly trade cotton,silk,tea etc..,Later it took control of india and started to rule India in 1957 after the “Battle of plassey “.After a long fightback of our freedowm fighters the company was dissolved in 1858.

After a 150 years look what happened.History rewritten.Now an Indian  named Sanjiv Mehta is a 48-year-old Indian businessman who for the past six years has worked to restore the formerly British-owned East India Company. In 2004, Mehta proceeded to buy all the company’s shares, mostly owned by British businessmen. He has spent the last six years travelling and talking to museum curators and historians in an attempt to gain a proper understanding of the heritage of the company. Mehta efforts are somewhat surprising given that the 400-year-old company acted as a vehicle for the expansion of British imperial rule in his homeland.
