As an Indian I feel that all those who share the shared conscious of the people of the country are Indian,its imagination,its creative spirit,its culture and heritage ,its inclusiveness ,irrespective of the ethnic origin of the inhabitants. All who had come here thousands of years ago from across the Himalayas and made it their home and all those who had lived here before them -all of them have shaped the destiny of this country and all of them are Indian .To be Indian is to share the common destiny of the people of this country .
