Bharat aptly denotes the nation's future role

[Last updated : Jan 19, Sat 2008, 4:39 pm पर्थ में हारा ऑस्ट्रेलिया, भारत ने चुकाया बदला
भारत और ऑस्ट्रेलिया के बीच पर्थ में खेला गया मैच भारत ने 72 रनों से जीत लिया और ऑस्ट्रेलिया के विजय रथ को उसके घर में ही रोक दिया।]
[On the same line but on a much higher plane, the great freedom fighter and a seer, spoke on the day of our Independence at length about his dreams about India’s future... Sri Aurobindo’s words, though appear to be too dreamy and high-brow, befitting a true seer (Yugarshi), are too weighty and meaningful to be brushed aside. Every line of his provides a deep insight regarding India’s past, present and future. -- Posted by Barada Charan Sharma at 10:17 PM Monday, January 14, 2008 LET THERE BE LIGHT: A NAMING PROBLEM]
[Have you the other strength in you? Have you realised what Nationalism is? Have you realised that it is a religion that you are embracing? If you have, then call yourselves Nationalists; and when you have called yourselves Nationalists, then try to live your Nationalism. Try to realise the strength within you, try to bring it forward, so that everything you do may be not your own doing, but the doing of that Truth within you. Try so that every hour that you live shall be enlightened by that presence, that every thought of yours shall be inspired from that one fountain of inspiration, that every faculty and quality in you may be placed at the service of that immortal Power within you... *A lecture delivered under the auspices of the Bombay National Union by Sri Aurobindo to a large gathering at Mahajan Wadi, Bombay, on Sunday, the 19th January, 1908.

How long should we have two different names of our country? Bharat is a much more inspiring name than India and aptly denotes the nation's future role within the global community. [TNM]
