“It was an experience to share knowledge with them and they were so amazed at Indian craftsmanship, Indian culture and elephant caves from the first century BC where the word ‘Bharatwarsh’ was mentioned. So those who don’t understand or those who say Never, I think they need to go back and read the Kharavela inscriptions in the Hathigumpha (cave) because “Bharatwarsh” has always been there and is part of our Sanskrit and culture. That’s what a layman needs to understand in the subject,” said Meenakashi Lekhi.
