A Persian called Minah-i-Suraj first used the term Hindustan in the 13th century to describe the regions of Punjab, Haryana and the areas between the Ganga and the Yamuna watered by the River Sindhu. The River Sindhu was called Hindu in Persian, Indos in Greek, Hoddu in Hebrew, Indus in Latin and Tien-Chu in Chinese.

Actually...you need to expand our name a little.

Socialist Republic of India.

Like it or hate it, that's our name. Given by our forefathers & founding fathers. It was given to encompass a set of goals & values. To uplift all Common people. It's a pity leaders like MA. Jinnah parted from JH Nehru's leadership. So the foundations were shaky.

But if u look into it, our name, SPELLED IN FULL suits us fine. No need to grudge. We just need to start living by our real name, not neo modern abbriviations.

Want to change it to Bharat? I'd support that, if it's spelled out in FULL- Bhārat Gaṇarājya. As declared in 26 January 1950. While renaming to Bharat, don't forget the Ganarajya.
