Why am I an Indian?

Because, when we want Shared accommodations we would like our partner to be an Indian.. Because we have a natural geographical boundary, from Himalayas to the Indian ocean.. Because, the company which brought this land mass into a single administrative unit named itself as East India company and named it India.. Because, the organization that sparked off the Nationalistic movement in India was named Indian national Congress.. Because, all of us believe in our Karma and all of us are addicted to spicy food.. Because, by looking at an Indian, I can say that he is an Indian even though I cannot know for sure from which region in India he is from.. Because, all of us want to take credit of a Civilization found a couple of thousand years ago.. Because, the name India still excites us and reminds us that we are a Nation of 1 billion people..
