Mark Twain :
India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.

French scholar Romain Rolland :
If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India.

Hu Shih, former Ambassador of China to USA :
India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without ever having to send a single soldier across her border.

Will Durant :
India was the mother of our race and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages. She was the mother of our philosophy, mother through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics, mother through Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity, mother through village communities of self-government and democracy. Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all.

Apollonius Tyanaeus (Neo-Pythagorean) :
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.

Sylvia Levi :
She (India) has left indelible imprints on one fourth of the human race in the course of a long succession of centuries. She has the right to reclaim ... her place amongst the great nations summarizing and symbolizing the spirit of humanity. From Persia to the Chinese sea, from the icy regions of Siberia to Islands of Java and Borneo, India has propagated her beliefs, her tales, and her civilization!

Edward Gibbon:
My early and invincible love of reading I would not exchange for all the riches of India.

Stafford Cripps :
India has indeed a great and free future before her, in which she can make her special contribution to the well-being of mankind. The first and indispensable part of that contribution is to work with the United Nations for the defeat of fascism and of brutal aggression.

Gary Wright :
India profoundly changed my outlook on life because you see how people can be content and very happy with little or even no possessions. It's the reverse of the West. 

Gary Ackerman :
India is a regional power. It does not need anything to establish it.

Pierre Pettigrew :
India is a global power and an important partner with whom we are building an intense, broad and enduring relationship. 

Martha Smith :
