I am several empires in one. I am Aryan. I am Dravidian. I have treasures. I have traditions. I have temples. I saw the rise and fall of the Romans, the Egyptians and the Mesopotamians. I survived tyranny, terror and termites. I have forts. I have forests. I have the mountains, the deserts, the backwaters, the lagoons and the beeches. I am beauty, I am peace and I am spirituality. I am Hindu. I am Muslim. I am Christian. I am 5000 years old. I am one of oldest surviving civilizations. Hi! I am India.
