- “Land of ancient India
Cradle of humanity, hail
Hail ! revered motherland,
Whom centuries of brutal invasions
Have not yet buried
Under the dust of oblivion.
Hail ! Fatherland of faith,
Of love, of poetry and of science,
May we hail a revival of thy past
In our Western future !”
- The Bible in India, as quoted in K. M. Talreja, Holy Vedas and Holy Bible: A Comparative Study, New Delhi: Rashtriya Chetana Sangathan, 2000
