WHY IT IS INDIAN PARLIAMENT/CONSTITUTION/ARMED FORCES ETC? ...AND WHY NOT -BHARATHEEYA PARLIAMENT/CONSTITUTION/ARMED FORCES??
A college boy in my neighbourhood wished me happy Independence day and went on to ask me a question which frankly I had no answer. later I did google but did not find an apt answer.
His question was why is the word India not in the National Anthem, Vande Mataram, Patriotic songs etc There is Bharat and Hindustan but no mention of the word India.
My answer to him was over simplistic and later as i thought about it wrong. I told him the Anglo Saxons called the country India as the Indus flows through.
Why is the country's name not Hindustan or Bharat?.
In the rural areas every one says "Hum Hindustani Hai" yet we have the Indian Constitution, Indian Parliament , Indian armed forces etc etc
Could someone explain Bharat/Hindustan/India
