India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only- Mark Twain.

Our Country is so rich in heritage and culture and our ancestors were very knowledgeable in all the fields but sadly we are not much aware of our rich past.

Let us start with some geographical facts about our beloved country:
