India was a nation which had everything, from cash to gold to creatures to magnificence. India was the wealthiest land in the old circumstances and thus it was called ' sone ki chidiya'. In the seventeenth century, the exchange was done in return of gold coins and bars. The way that India is wealthy in each conceivable metal expected to make the framework, exchange with India was not a cheap arrangement.  

Why was India called the Golden Bird?

The place that is known for flavors, cotton, and press weapons had a great deal to offer. In the seventeenth century, India was a noteworthy exporter of materials, flavors, pearls, and sugar and iron weapons. India did not require any import whatsoever.

The measure of revenue that India was making was incomprehensible. We as a whole realize that India is no more the “sone ki chidiya” on account of an exceptionally straightforward certainty that we were excessively fortunate regarding assets yet exceedingly unfortunate if there should be an occurrence of sparing our country. Relatively every nation attacked us to lead us, however, while we were getting battered and wounded and were battling among each other, the assets were gradually and relentlessly reducing.

The British utilized the separation and discount to cross us as well. The weakest point and the most grounded point continues as before for our situation, DIVERSITY. We are a diverse country, brimming with societies, customs, dialects, sustenance yet we couldn't deal with it. We are as yet battling for our personalities while we disregard the way this is our character.

Regardless, there are a few realities that express that why our country was known as the brilliant winged creature recorded further.
