What are the particulars of our country India, that we can be proud of? I have a few.Add a few too guys & gals?
Some of the things you must know about India, especially if you're an Indian. I have missed a lot to mention here. So please add on your knowledge too. Gross Domestic Population 4.726 Trillion!!!! 38% of Doctors in America are Indians! 12% of Scientists in America are Indians!! 36% if the NASA employees are Indians!!! 34% of Microsoft employees are Indians!!!! 28% of IBM employees in the world are Indians!!!! Rajiv Gupta (Indian) The General Manager of Hewlett Packard!!! Vinod Dahm (Indian) Invented the Pentium Chip!!! Sabeer Bhatia (Indian) Founder and creator of Hotmail!!! Lakshmi Mittal is the 5th richest man in the world and the richest man in England!!! His house is the most expensive house in the WORLD worth 70 Million pounds. Sanskrit is the mother language of all European Languages!!!! Sanskrit is the most suitable language for computer software as reported in Forbes Magazine 1987!!!! Chess was invented in India!!!! We have been to the moon and back. Sushruta (Indian) Is the father of Surgery!!!! 2600 years ago he and his health scientists conducted complex surgeries like fractures, artificial limbs, urinary stones, brain surgery and even cosmetic surgery!!!! Aryabhatta invented the number Zero!!! Budhayana first calculated the value of pi (3.14)!!! He explained the Pythagorean Theorem!!! He discovered this in the 6th century long before the European Mathematicians!!! India invented the number system!!! Algebra, Trigonometry & Calculus came from India!!!! Albert Einstein once said " We owe a lot to the Indians who taught us how to count, without which, no scientific invention or discovery made, would have been worthwhile." !!!!!! We have over 5600 Newspapers & 3500 different magazines with approximately 120 million readers everyday!!!! India has the 3rd biggest army in the world 1.5 million men!!! Ayurveda is India's own medical science related to nature. Now the world seems begging more of it!!! Alexander THE GREAT tasted defeat for the first time being defeated and driven back by the Indian warriors!!! He could conquer the world but failed to do so in India!!! I don't have to tell you about SACHIN TENDULKAR!!! He is the living Don Bradman and he isn't finished yet. The Indian Railway is the largest railway system found in the world. Many foreigners who have lost their job are seeking for it in India and I'm talking about hundred thousands to a million. Our economy is the strongest in the world. Much stronger than China in the long run. Rest of the developed nations are now researching and learning the ways of the RBI (Reserve Bank Of India) in order to get out of the economic crisis they are facing. Well they too are facing it these days. Don't ever be ashamed of our population by any means, because in the end of many researches and studies conducted by foreign survey organizations, our population is the main reason for a stronger economy. In an other context it's also said that within 40-50 years time the percentage of youth found in the developed countries are going to fall drastically. It's already happening and will only increase. Why do you think developed nations are unable to quench their thrist for nurses from around the globe throughout the entire year? We can be proud that a great percentage of women in our country are nurses & India is main supplier of nurses! I can only hope and pray that the people of India do not imitate the developed nations and limit themselves when it comes to population. If that does happen, it definitely will affect us negatively in the long run. I do agree that we have a long way to go, a lot to learn and correct. Hopefully, it won't take that long to reach there. But only PESSIMISTS see and promote the negative side which even the so called "developed countries" have. We have only started our journey to development and it's been only about 63 years since the British stopped robbing India of it's raw materials that's including gold, silver, various precious stones the size of a fist, sandalwood, spices, medicated herbs, sherbs. Look where we have reached in this short span of time. I'm not talking about a country I'm talking about a sub continent. 63 years is really a shot period of time. No country has ever made progress in such a scale in this time frame. Imagine who we will be in the next 50 years time!!! I'm an Indian & A Proud One Too. JAI HIND! Thank-you for reading. Pete :) Thank you Scott, run Joey run, Brahmanand & Ramasubramanian for adding details to the list, for your timely support & making corrections. Yes we do have a lot to correct. On the negative side, the changing governments have neglected a lot of groundwork which is important too for real development! You are right there. As for u 'OLD HOLLYWOOD' you're being a complete ass. I may have not mentioned about the negative of my country, but I certainly have mentioned about people like you. Modern Architecture is nothing compared to the Ancient ones. The geniuses of modern architecture don't have a clue on how ancient structures where built. Even with their modern technology, other than analyzing and studying these ancient structures they don't know where to start with.I never stated that the Europeans haven't contributed anything.Being a film maker,the style of Art,Music,Film Making in Europe has always attracted me.But we had all of that in India from way back

People from India should be proud of their natural heritage. The National Parks of India are a wonderful thing. The tigers and wildlife are something to protect and to tell other people about. Do art work of the tigers in India. This is a wonderful thing about the country
