Interesting information. Though I agree now India's success will be as federation. Making its people lose their true identity has only made entire nation mediocre. The names Rajasthan, Punjab, karnatic, Tamil stem out also from 1000 year old tradition and cultural values of each set of people. A forced union allows migrations and dissolution of integral cultures. It's division affects the development adversely. As a federation of the states combine power and meet at points that are common, it's better for all.
