India is a great country with its true, honest, and innocent masses that by virtue of their religious and pious nature are piteous and merciful to all creatures of humanity and are staunch supporters of nonviolence. India is a genesis of all cultural traditions, ethics, and moralities. Indians are famous for their unparalleled protocol and hospitality. The magnanimity, compassion, and generosity of Indians is undoubtedly acknowledged all over the world. They are very kind and sympathetic even to the animals, what to talk of humans! Though its people speak different languages, belong to different castes and religions, they are great patriots and are ready to sacrifice their lives for the sake of country. They can live and die for the cause of their country. They symbolize "Unity in Diversity". They are very warm natured and welcome even the outsiders/foreigners who visit India with evil intentions and contentions. The amicability and sociality of Indians is famous all over the world. India is sublime because of its magnificent legacy of land resources and elementary wealth of great mountains, rivers, and oceans - a gift of nature. Himalaya, the great grand mountain with its snowy peaks and cliffs adds to the geographical majesty and grace of the country. India magnificently surrounded by three gigantic and enormous oceans looks all the more elegant and beautiful.

Since antiquity, India has been famous for its prosperity and rich resources. Greedy races and communities world over had been covetous and curious to grab its wealth by coercive means and methods. It was a land of self-reliance and self-sufficiency. India might be one of the third worlds, but Indians have struggled hard to achieve all-round development, advancement in science and technology which lead to its marvelous growth. Some antisocial, desperate, and offensive agencies wanted to harm and frighten its masses by their dreadful and audacious activities. These evil forces wanted to overpower and defeat the country's aims and objectives. So, it was subjected to terrorist attacks and other brutal and heinous activities jeopardizing its unity. Brave and chivalrous people of India though became victims of their evil designs did not lose their balance and fought courageously to defeat and crush the aims and intentions of these antisocial elements.

The recent incidence of 26/11 of Mumbai which has equaled 9/11 of USA shall remain unforgettable because of the unpardonable heinous crime committed by the terrorists killing innocent people and destroying and damaging the precious commercial hubs of the country. They have posed a great threat to unity and integrity of the nation. But in this fateful and troublesome time, the people of India gave a proof of their remarkable tolerance and courage. They remained united and stood together expressing their solidarity to face the challenge bravely. They raised voice against this inhuman and callous act of the antisocial elements that no one can cast a wicked glance toward India as long as every single Indian's heart beats. We should be proud of being Indians. We are proud of being Indians.[Figure 1]
