One of the reasons why educated Indians are so scathing and derisive about India is precisely because no one can define a place for India in their minds - but everyone is clear about the west, Russia and China.


Smriti bhransh (स्मृति भ्रंष). Indians are victims of disconnect due to apathy of their own doing.

Creating new 'memories' which once brought good marks in exams, helped in clearing competitive interviews and earning daily bread.

Romans, Arabs and Chinese had significant presence in ancient India. India influenced the ancient world till 16th century CE and there are solid evidences.

Interactions on intellectual level with Arabs and Chinese lasted for many centuries.
Chinese records of interaction with India is from 4-5th Century to 14th Century CE. Chinese translated whatever they learnt/gathered from India in Chinese, vis-a-vis translated Chinese works in Sanskrit.
