MEANING OF THE TERM HINDU
has three meanings in Sanskrit. It means a particular river now
called the Indus, a river in general, or the ocean. Clearly Sindhu
in the land of Sapta Sindhu refers to river in general and not
simply to the Indus as a particular stream only.
meant India as a great land of many rivers. The main river in
Vedic India was the Saraswati and in later times became the Ganges.
So Sindhu Sthana is also Saraswati Sthana and later Ganga
Sthana, not simply the region of the Indus.
