Rebuilding of India

How could India be a nation which is so ancient that its beginning cannot be traced and yet is most relevant in time? Though India had to face a lot of invasions, how did it retain its identity?
Invaders looted India, deprived her of her wealth and distorted her systems and yet how does she have all the potentiality of an emerging super power? How is it that religion is her life-center and yet she has no problem with science and technology?
India knew to rebuild itself after every challenge. What is the secret? If we understand that, we shall be able to rebuild our nation.Nation plays an important role in the life of man as well as in the march of humanity. This is what Swami Vivekananda said:
Each nation has a destiny to fulfill, each nation has a message to deliver, each nation has a mission to accomplish. Therefore, from the very start, we must have to understand the mission of our own race, the destiny it has to fulfill, the place it has to occupy in the march of nations, and note which it has to contribute to the harmony of races. (CWSV, vol. III, p. 369)

For India to be able to give her message of spirituality to the world, she needs to rebuild  herself first.
