Ancient coin from Mohenjodaro

Welcome to a site that has been created to spread some information about my motherland India. India has been independent for the past 50 years and is spreading its wings of freedom in all walks of life. Called God's own country, with perhaps the most variety of resources this is one place to visit be it for its historical importance or its splendour. Its presence on our planet earth seems to be at a strategic position, right at the gateway to the far-east.

Vedas - Ancient Indian scripture

My name is Ranjith and at present I'm studying at the University at Buffalo, majoring in Computer Engineering. I am an Indian and am proud to be one. I have a lot of friends in Buffalo and the other places I have lived in before. My hobbies are reading, listening to Indian Music, and watching T.V.

Mahatma Gandhi - Father of the Indian Nation

Perhaps the most important reason for India's present state of affairs was one man Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Indian Nation. A man who believed in non-violence or ahimsa, he led India's foremost movement for Independence against the British. Here is an extract from one of his speeches.

"I recognize no God except the God
that is to be found in the hearts of the dumb millions...
And I worship the God that is Truth
... through the service of these millions."
- Mahatma Gandhi

Mother Teresa - A lady with the World at her feet

Another person who had just as much influence as Mahatma Gandhi was Mother Teresa, a woman of the people, who dedicated her whole life to serving humanity and mankind. No person seemed to have such an appeal on the masses as Mother Teresa did. Her selflessness and and concern for the underprivelaged made her the role model of millions of hearts around the world.

Former Miss World - Aishwarya Rai

One of the other things that India is famous for is its Movie Industry and cine stars. Studies show that the Indian Movie Industry is second only to the biggest industry in the world, Hollywood, both in terms of number of movies produced and viewers. India has also had Miss Worlds and a Miss Universe. Models like Aishwarya Rai, Sushmita Sen, Diana Hayden and others have brought the fashion industry to the forefront. And in order to bring about the glory of the nation, India has so many newspapers and magazines like Times of India and The Hindu for daily news, The Economic Times and Business Today for the businessman, Filmfare and Cineblitz for the movie enthusiast.
