About the Book

This Book was published to serve as a primer of patriotism for our younger generation. There was a time when India had cultural relations with the whole of south-East Asia for fourteen centuries and Hindu and Buddhist pioneers carried the torch religion and culture to far off South America, Mexico, Guatemala, Japan, China, Korea, Philippines in the east and to many a nation in the west including Ireland. The story of India’s imprints on the countries of Asia, Europe and America is full of inspiration.

This little book is an attempt to convey in words a faint reflection of the beauty and the splendour that was Bharat Mata during the last fifty centuries. Every page of the book breathes the fragrance that was Ind. The reader will feel proud to learn that India is worshipped as mother by thinkers, scholars and historians of East and West.

About the Author

Saffron-robed BHIKSHU CHAMAN LAL was a dedicated man. He had been made in the tradition of a classical Indoa, the tradition of Asceticism and renunciation. In December 1955, he renounced the world and was ordained as Buddhist monk at Sarnath. After the ancient Indian tradition he roamed many lands bearing the message of love and truth. His philosophy was an active humanitarian philosophy. He Travelled Around the world 51 times and wrote over 50 books.

Preface

A tree must love the ground on which it stands.
Motherland is greater than heaven.
-Sri Rama
All the ambitious plans and projects like huge dams and power projects for the material rehabilitation of the country would be of no avail whatever if its beneficiaries and participants turned out to be men and women of puny narrow intellect and without wherewithal of vigorous manhood.

- Dr. Radhakrishnan

"India: Mother of Us All" was planned at the request of my beloved leader Jawaharlal Nehru to serve as a primer of patriotism for our younger generation.

There was a time when greater India had her cultural empires in the whole of South-East Asia for fourteen centuries and Hindu and Buddhist pioneers carried the torch of religion and culture to far off South America, Mexico, Guatemala, Japan, China, Korea, Philippines in the east and to many a nation in the west including Ireland. 3,500 years ago Syria (ancient Surya) had an empire of the Sun and her Aryan rulers had names such as Ishwar Dutt, Vidya Dutt and Chandra Dutt. (Read Bible as History by Werner Keller.) A hundred, Ayar Brahmin rulers ruled, a 2,500 mile long empire in South America until 1532. (Read Hindu America.)

The story of India's imprints on the countries of Asia, Europe and America is full of inspiration. For want of funds I had to reduce the 560 page book to only 160 pages, every page of which bears testimony to India's great and glorious past. As armies are fed from the rear a nation receives inspiration from her past. It is my fervent hope that our youth (who can compete with any young men in the world) would imbibe inspiration from India's glorious past and rebuild India of the dreams of Swami Vivekananda, Swami Dayananda, Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Gurudev Tagore and Netaji.

Fragrance of Ind

This little book is an attempt to convey in words a faint reflection of the beauty and the splendour that was Bharat Mata during the last fifty centuries. Every page of the book breathes the fragrance that was Ind. The reader will feel proud to learn that India is worshipped as mother by thinkers, scholars and historians of East and West.

Wanted Leaders

Only our colleges and schools can produce leaders for a new India.

A school is not a mere mechanical plant producing robot scholars. A school's primary job is to train healthy, happy and lively citizens and to produce leaders for tomorrow who have faith in the destiny of India.

It is not the size of a country but the character of its people that makes its destiny Switzerland. one of the smallest countries and yet the wealthiest and most advanced in Europe, has proved that nations rise by character alone.

True patriotism is based on character, i.e., honesty, .truthfulness, generosity, selfless sacrifice and genuine love of freedom. Our ancestors became pioneers of culture in every corner of the world and founded cultural empires from Kabul to Peru because they were men of character. Men of character have shaped destinies of nations. It is character that illumines wisdom. Shivaji, pratap, Gandhi, Tilak, Netaji Bose and Bhagat Singh have left their immortal imprints on the hearts of millions because of their chraracter,

If we want to retain our freedom we will have to produce men f character. Mere pride in the past will not help. Have feet in the past, heart in the present and eyes on the future. Beware of Pirates The selfish politicians of various parties are exploiting students to burn trams, buses, post offices and valuable public property. I can uy pray in the words of an American poet:

God, give us men: A time like this demands

Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands,

Men whom the lust of office does not kill;

Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy,

Men who possess opinions and a will;

Men who have honour; men who will not lie;

For while they rabble, with their thumbworn creeds,

Their large professions and their little deeds,

Mingle in selfish strife, 10: freedom weeps,

Wrong rules the land and waiting justice sleeps.
