    Shri Uday Ji
    Thanks will not be enough for your knowledge and courage to openly writing this article. Please everybody read and start respecting Sanatan dharma. Also try to feel and understand the pain our ancestors have gone through under the rules of various cruel invaders. And don’t be a proud follower of foreign culture to show off your riches.
