    • Thank you Sir, for visiting the site. I think you are
      referring to ”Republic of India”.Also remember that
      India was called ”Rama Rajya” in Treta Yuga and Gandhiji
      was dreaming that India should become ”Rama Rajya”, where
      Rama sacrificed his personal happiness for the wellbeing of
      his people.
