What is India?
  • In religion and culture, India is the only
    millionaire! There is only one India, the land
    of dreams and romance. The one land all men
    desire to see, and having seen once, by even a
    glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the
    shows of all the rest of the globe combined.
    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.
