A word'' bharat chhetra '' meaning the whole world was most popular in jainism with the philosophy 'We living in Bharat Chetra and no one can go to MOKSHA direct from this bharat chetra...although you can go to dev yoni and there after you can go to MAHAVIDEHA CHETRA and can go to MOKSHA from there.
as per hindu mythology BHARAT was a legendry king son of shakuntala and his conqured region in his name was called bharatvarsha.
our india is a divided part of old bharatvarsha.

Bharata is a legendary king in Hindu mythology. He was the first to conquer all of Greater India, uniting it into a single entity which was named after him .According to some Puranas, the term Bharatvarsha applies to the whole Earth and not just to India.
