    India has given the world of mankind a counting system without which nothing else could progress.

    Even Einstein acknowledged this fact.

    Also one of the earliest societies to adopt a version of democracy (though only in small pockets) if I'm not wrong, almost at the same time as the Greeks. However monarchy was the dominant form of government.

    Default India's contribution is beyond calculation

    Contribution of India to the world is innumerable. As we can't count the stars in the sky, to count the contribution of India is also impossible. through out the ages India has been contributing in every aspect. Let us get inspired by this and endeavour to contribute more.
