The shift from India to Bharat will be difficult, according to Indian men’s hockey goalkeeper PR Sreejesh, who added that “Bharat” has always been. His remarks were made in the midst of the India v. Bharat dispute. The name “India” was changed to “Bharat” in President Draupadi Murmu’s invitations to heads of state, chiefs of government, and chief ministers of states for an official banquet during the G20 Summit in New Delhi, causing controversy. Instead of the traditional “President of the Republic of India,” the name “Bharat” was used, sparking rumours among political figures, especially among those who are a part of the Opposition INDIA alliance.Sreejesh responded to the news and gave his position to the media, saying, “That is a new question for me since I never felt it like that because we constantly say ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’. Bharat is thus always present. Now you write Bharat instead of India. Given that you are accustomed to this word, I believe it will be a little unusual for me. You have been spreading this message for a very long time. However, I believe that will be a novel experience for children, and they will be ok with that.
