Bharat is one and all Bharatiyas are equally one, says RSS chief Mo­han Bhag­wat

The Free Press Journal - - MUMBAI/STATE -

MUM­BAI: RSS chief Mo­han Bhag­wat on Mon­day said the word 'In­dia' is de­rived from the river In­dus, and sug­gested the more in­clu­sive 'Bharat' as an al­ter­na­tive way of ad­dress­ing the coun­try. "In­dia came from In­dus, is there Cau­very in it? Isn't that in Bharat? Bharat is one, all Bharatiyas are one," Bhag­wat said, speak­ing at an event at the BSE here on Mon­day. "Even in English, you can write 'Bharatiya'. Writ­ing it as 'Bharatiya' does not vi­o­late any rules of the lan­guage, be­cause there is no trans­la­tion of proper nouns," he said. To ex­plain his point about proper nouns, Bhag­wat said he is ad­dressed as "Mo­han" ev­ery­where. "There is no trans­la­tion pos­si­ble for Mo­han. Wher­ever in the world I go, I am Mo­han, all of us are Bharatiyas," he said.s trans­ferred is Pune Col­lec­tor Dr Sau­rav Rao, who has been ap­pointed the Pune Mu­nic­i­pal Com­mis­sioner.
