Bhaaratiya, the Indians

Not long ago, reading in a great English review, it was remarked, and remarked quite truly,

It is doubtful if in any other country than India so large a proportion of the reverently high-minded have agreed — and acted accordingly — that the greatest and eventually happiest use to which they could apply themselves was the assiduous seeking and the intrepid finding of God, all else in life being accounted as subordinate in importance”.
