Change the name from India to Bharat at the international level sign now

To,

Smt. Pratibhatai Devisinghji Patil,

The President of Bharat (India.),


Honourable President,

Since our country has an origin from one of the most ancient civilizations in the world,we are bound to have our own cultural identity!The name of a country is a very first representation of her identity in the outer world!

Now,the question is that,is the word "India" our real name? The answer is "NO" !That is the name given to us by the people who have come from the outside world to rule us,just 400 yrs ago ,in 1617! Why should a country like ours,with a cultural background of thousands of years, need somebody from outside to "give" her a name ?


The name "Bharat" is a well accepted one inside our country ,in various governmental & social fields,which is well evident from the following examples:-

1.Our national anthem :-

Jan gan man adhinayak jay he
Bharat bhagya widhata

2.Our national pledge :- The very first line is...

"Bharat mera desh hai. !

3.The word Bharatiya dand sanvidhan is used for Indian penal code.

4.The daily "Hindi Samachar " on Doordarshan national network, always uses Bharat for the word India. e.g.

"a cricket match between" India & England" as "Bharat wirudha England"

& so on..


Even a small neighbouring countries like ShriLanka & Myanmar have shown an awareness & courage to change their names then why should a vast country like Bharat remain in a deep slumber for such a long period?The major cities in our country like Mumbai,Kolkatta & Chennai have already taken an initiative in this direction & now ,this is a need of time to take this process further, to an international level !


Our freedom fighters have done a great job by giving our nation it's own identity as an independent & sovereign nation & this is our duty to throw away the name that represents a bad patch of slavery in the history of our country & to execute our right to call ourself at the international level as "Bharatiyas" ,which is our true cultural identity!

Respected President, we put this petition before you as a peaceful & nonviolent way to represent our sincere wish to change our great nation's name at the international level from "India " to "Bharat" !!!
JAI BHARAT !!!
