British India and the extent of it today has become what "India or "Bharat" rather was. A question that I want to ask and at the end of it professionally MAP it, over the thousands of years of Bharat Varshas history from the Mauryas, Guptas, Cholas right down to Bahadur Shah NOT including the British Indian territory, what was Bharats reach. It's Empires, it's protectorates, vassals over the thousands of years of Bharats history. From Iran to South east Asia, from Indian Ocean to Central Asia. Let is first discuss the extent of Indian reach over the history and slowly map it to show what areas of Asia have been under Bharat's control and influence. The Chinese seem to be issuing all kinds of maps to show their influence. India being a dominant cultural nation of Asia too has to Map it's past. We will not write any Empires name on the map. Just keep coloring the areas that were part of Bharat at one point or the other kind of superimposed. I will request members to tweet, FB this thread as well to get maximum eyeballs. This will be our effort to help people understand influence of Bharat! @civfanatic @LurkerBaba @Rage @Singh @ EVERYBODY!!
