Every nation takes pride in its ancestors, the precursors who set the note for the eymphony of national life. For some cuntries these ancestors are politicians, for others warriors, and for still others great thinkers whose thoughts influenced all the later people

India traces its roots to sages, rishis, and seers of truth India was not born out of bloodshed from a sword, but rather, out of wisdom acquired in meditation. It is proud to trace its ancestary to the half-clad sages who had nothing in this world and yet ruled the heats of millions - sages to whom the mightiest of emperors bowed down and sought counsel from.
