India: How India got its name

How India got its name, the story of 'fire' and 'river'

India: How India got its name.

The name change of the country is being debated in India. It is being demanded that India be named only India. A petition was also filed in the Supreme Court in this regard.

The petitioner told the court that the name “India” was derived from the Greek word “indak” and that the name should be removed from the constitution. He also asked the court to order the government to change Article 1 of the Constitution to name India only India.

The Supreme Court dismissed the petition and refused to intervene in the matter.

The court said that India is already mentioned in the constitution. The constitution says ‘India that is India’.

The court said that the petition should be sent to the ministry working on constitutional matters of the government and the petitioner should file his appeal before the government.

This is nothing new and there are many countries in the world that have changed their names.

India is also known as India and also India. India is known by different names but what is the reason?

From ancient times the names of India have been different, for example Jumbo Deep, Bharat Khand, Hamrosh, Ajna Bhavarsh, Arya Vart, India, India and now India.

Even the most diverse concepts and differences regarding the name have emerged in India. Like the mixed culture of India, it has different names in different eras.

Sometimes geography, sometimes caste awareness and sometimes cultural reasons are behind these names.

Geography is the main reason behind names like India, India, and India. The main basis of these names seems to be the river Indus, but Sindh is not just a river of a specific area.

Indus also means river and sea. In this form, the area to the north-west was once called ‘Sapat Sindhu’ or Punjab, in which an attempt is made to identify that vast fertile area with the five main canals flowing there.

Similarly, behind the name of India is the identity of ‘Sapat Sindhu’ i.e. ‘Agni Hotar culture’ which flourishes in the Indus region.
India’s claimants, many ‘Bharat’
In ancient times there were many people named Bharat.

The most famous of these is Bharat of ‘Mahabharat’. Also included is Natya Shastra’s Bharat Mani. Apart from these, this name is also found in books of Hindu religion in different eras.

In an important scripture of the Hindu religion, ‘Etraye Brahman’, the Bharatas of Ramayana are seen standing behind the name of India. According to this scripture, Bharat worshiped to establish a large empire on a vast land on all four sides, after which his kingdom was named Bharat Varsh.

The name ‘Bharat’ is also mentioned in Jain religion and culture and important information about it is found. God bless you
Bharat, son of Dashinat Shakuntala
There is a well-known story about the Mahabharata behind the name Bharat, in which an important sage prayed that Bharat would grow up to be a king, after whom the name of his land would become popular.

Some historians and historical books cite Bharat as the most important reason behind the name of India, but experts generally believe that ‘Bharat Jin’ is found in this country even before Bharat, the son of Maharaja Dashinat. Therefore, he believes that the name of India has become famous not on the name of a single person but on the basis of a particular caste. The country was named Bharat Varsh after Mahayogi, the eldest son of Bhidu. In Sanskrit, varsh also means area, division and division.
Bharat Jin from India
Bharat Jin used to worship fire. Bharat means fire, or protector of the world, or even the name of a king.

This is the same king who ruled on the banks of Saraswati, Ghagghar. In Sanskrit, ‘bhar’ means war. It also means ‘group’ or ‘feeder’.

Linguist Dr. Ram Vilas Sharma says, “These meanings are so different from each other and completely opposite to each other. If the whole meaning is war and also the one who feeds, then this word has no meaning left. The original meaning of ‘fill’ was ‘jinn’ or people. And that was the group that made Bharat famous.
The relationship of ‘Bharati’ and ‘Saraswati’ with the recruits
Thousands of years ago, the fire-loving Bharat jinn became so popular that the use of fire in permanent worship began to have the same meaning as Bharat and fire.

Dr. Ram Vilas Sharma says that the poets of the Rig Veda, an important Veda of the Hindu religion, are aware of the historical tradition of the Bhartas about fire.

The fire was called Bharat because of the relationship of Bharat Jinn with fire. In the same way, the sarcastic voice of the poets has also been called Indian because of the constant reading of poetry by the poets.

War of ten kings
Step In India, a famous caste ‘Bharat’ is mentioned many times. It was a group of people living in the Saraswati river or in the Kachhar area of ​​present day Ghaggar. These were also people who worshiped fire.

Bharat was named after him and the whole area at that time was named Bharat Varsh. The chief of the intelligentsia was Sodas.

Before the Vedic period, there were several groups of ‘Bharats’ living in the northwest and they were called Jinn.

That is why this group of recruits was known as Jin.

Ten of these groups were at war with the Sodas and their Tartsu tribes.
‘India’ two and a half thousand years before Mahabharata
This great war is said to have taken place two and a half thousand years before the Mahabharata.

Historians believe that there was a war between the Kurus and the Pandavas two and a half thousand years ago.

A domestic feud that turned into a war, it is true, but the name of this country is India and why the name of the country came in a decisive battle between two families.

This is because almost all the states bordering India participated in this war, so it can be called Mahabharata.

This also happened two and a half thousand years before ‘Dasha Ragh Jang’. That is, this war took place seven and a half thousand years ago today.

In this war, the people of the ‘Thirsto’ caste had won over a group of ten states. Thirsty jinns were called a group of recruits. Before the war, his area was known by many names.

After this victory, the influence of Bharat Jinn increased in the society of that time and a large party of the districts of that time was called Bharat Nam, meaning the party of Bharats.

Culture of India and Iran
Now let’s talk about India. Iranians and Indians are old relatives. Iran was first Persia. Even before that there were Ernum, Arya, and Aryan.

It is believed that the group or group of Aryans on the other side of the Hindu Kush was called Iran and the group of the Aryans on the other side of the East was also called Aryart. They were both strong and influential groups.

In fact, the name of India was conveyed to the West by the Iranians themselves.

The word ‘Hindu’ inscribed on the Kurdish border is a testament to this.

The Persians also learned Arabic but in their own way.
The word Hindu was also in the Akkadian culture two and a half thousand years before Christ. Akkad, Samir, Egypt all had relations with India. This is about the Harappan era.

Sindh was not only a river but also another name for sea and water. The famous ‘Sapt Sindh’ area of ​​Sindh with seven rivers was called ‘Haft Hindu’ in ancient Persian.

Does this ‘Hindu’ have any other meaning?
The names used like Hind, Hindu, Hindwan, Hindu are very old.

Indus is the Greek form of this Hindu. This is centuries before Islam.

The use of the words Indus for India and Greece for India in Greece is proof that India is a very ancient word and is the identity of India.

In this way, India was formed by uniting with India, that is, where Indians live and Hindus live.
