In India, I found a race of mortals living upon the Earth, but not adhering to it, inhabiting cities, but not being fixed to them, possessing everything, but possessed by nothing.
India was the motherland of our race and Sanskrit the mother of Europe’s languages. India was the mother of our philosophy, of much of our mathematics, of the ideals embodied in Christianity… of self-government and democracy. In many ways, Mother India is the mother of us all.
India has left a deeper mark upon the history, philosophy and religions of mankind than any other terrestrial unity in the universe.
If there is one place on the face of the earth where all the dreams of living man have found a home from the very earliest days of man’s existence on earth, it is India.
We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.
