15 August Amantran patrika : India is known by the name of Hindusatan.But India is called India in English. Have you ever wondered why India is called India in English and who decided the word? So let us give you information today about how India got the name India in English and what its significance is.
That many foreign traders came to India to increase their trade and all of them gave a different name to India in their own way but India is considered to be mainly the hand of Iranians and Greeks behind getting words like Hindustan and India.
It is to be mentioned that earlier the name of India was also Indus. In Iranian or Old Persian the word Indus was derived from Hindu and from this word came Hindustan. While in Greek it got the form of the word Indo or Indos and when the word is Latin.
When it comes to language, it was made from there. Even India did not agree on the adoption of this word and the reason behind it was why we decide the name of our country from the words made by someone else. But when English rule came to India, he adopted this word and thus India got its name in English India …
The British increased the use of the word India to such an extent that even the Indians started adopting the word and started calling themselves Indians and the country India. But this word got full recognition when after independence our constitution accepted the word India as another name of the country.
