The Unbroken Guru-Sishya tradition and The Continuity of Bharatvarsha
Bharatvarsh, the nation that is today Bharat, has an antiquity dating back to the Vedic period -- at least 3500 years before. There is no land and people on this earth who have been aligned like Bharatvarsh and Bharatiyas. Their alignment has an antiquity which as Swami Vivekananda said, history dares not peep.

In recent times - especially after the Galwan incident of 15 June 2020, Sino Indian border dispute is the most intensely debated topic in Indian media. The contents and the tone of media debates at times provide misleading perception due to digitised nature of information that forms the basis of debates in general.
