The world will look upon us and we will emerge as one. world leader if we increase urban growth but not be a cheap copy of the western world and stay deeply rooted in Vedas, Geeta and Yoga, can we please change this slave name India to Bharat. ” She shared a screenshot of her story post on Instagram.
In a follow-up post, she continued: “The British gave us the name slave India … which literally means east of the Indus River. Really, would you call a little nose kid or a second- born or worse section C. What kind of name is this? So rudimentary. Let me tell you the meaning of Bharat. It is made up of three Sanskrit words BH (bhav), Ra (rag), ta (tal). Yes, this is what we were before we were enslaved, the most culturally and aesthetically evolved civilization. Every name has a vibe and the British knew it, not only were they giving new names to places but even to of important people and monuments. We must regain our lost glory, let’s start with the name Bharat. “
