They may be more advanced in business or commerce or in the scientific field. India had been enslaved for several years by several people. Hence it was not allowed to develop. After its independence it has been developing at a rapid rate too. Other nations are envious of this fact which is obviously seen now. However India is known throughout the world nations as being the foremost in culture. Almost all Indian citizens are righteousness and God fearing. Hence there are hundreds of kshetras in India. Hundreds of saints have incarnated here and relived righteousness. The incarnations of the Lord have been only in Bharatha desha. It is a reservoir of hundreds of granthas like Ramayana and Mahabharatha. Out of all states and kingdoms Kosaladesha and Bhojadesha are of special significance.
