“India is the cradle of the human race,
The birthplace of human speech,
The Mother of history,
The Grandmother of legend, and
The Great grandmother of tradition.
Our most valuable and most constructive
materials in the history of man are
treasured up in India only.”
India is a cauldron of rich culture, a mix of a variety of flora and fauna, a soothing blend of art and philosophy, a confluence of affluent heritage and a crucible of various races and ethnic groups following different religions and speaking in different languages.
