Bharatvarsha ( A Short History Of Founding Of The India .

 According to the scriptural description of the Brahmand, the entire Earth is called

Bharatvarsha but particularly, the area of the continent that lies South of the
Himalayas is called Bharatvarsha. It is also called Aryavarta. The inhabitants of
Aryavarta are called Aryans as referred in the Rig Veda.
Thus, the words Bharatiya or Aryans were both used for the inhabitants of
Bharatvarsha or Aryavarta. Persians used to call Hindu for the Sindhu river and
thus, Hindustan came into being. The English called the river Sindhu, Indus and thus
the English name for Hindustan became India.
