A country with a proud past, a serious present
 India is a very colorful nation. I can say so with much confidence because I am an Indian who is wellaware of its past and the present. We were the country who was once the spice hub of the world andthe land of the golden bird (sone ki chidia). We are also the current land of the technologists and theaggressive economists. We are vivid, vivid with our culture and with our traditions. We wear manydifferent dresses, follow many discrete religions, worship different idols and still we are united in acountry called India. We devoured to be called as Hindustan as it would make us non-secular.  Oureconomy stood still as the qutub minar throughout the tough tide of the economic recession. And Iswear this list will go on until I get tired of it.  Being content of my examples till now don
t you think weare colorful?Many foreigners survey India regularly, displaying the various aspects (food, culture, travel, etc) of present India and try to come up with an opinion. Some common current examples are Paul Merton,Ramsey, etc. But with all due respect I would say the job of evaluating my country lies solely in ourhands. We are the people who are living the present India and our ancestors have lived in the past.And believe me this task will definitely lead us to a fruitful conclusion.So are we proud of our country or we are not? Well that is very trivial. But I can give you my viewand it is
Yes, I am proud of India
. If you ask me a reason there are lots and all are accompanied with abit of criticism.
A country with a proud past
Not many know what conclusion to make from Indi
past. By past I would definitely refer to theindependence struggle of colonial India. Whether India's past was all about the chaos or all about thesuppression or all about the mutiny. If you ask me I will make it simple and pin-point. I will pointtowards the past of non-violence. India is among the very few country
s whose past is among thosewho haven
t done any harm to others. D
reiterate that a country under a foreign rule could not doharm to others. Yes, it could have. It could have proceeded with a mutiny and over throw the British,which obviously must involve killing and blood-shed of British people.  But we didn
t take that path.We were so very lucky to have a leader like Mahatma, who instead took a path of complete non-violence.All this ideas of India
s glorious past didn
t come as I am a hardcore patriot who I am not but from anincident that happened to my dad and I had been recalling it. It goes like this:My father was in America a few years back when on a lighter discussion they were somehow talkingabout India. Then my father
s American colleague said
It is a rare sight that a whole country is made
