WE CAN TEACH THEM “THE ANOTHER THEORY OF HUMAN EVOLUTION”
According to the Western Theory of Evolution we all have evolved from Chimpanzees and finally came to become the modern human being.
But let me tell you, while they were busy finding and proving all this crap, Our ancestors had already discovered the origin of our Soul, Which I find more worthy and truly scientific.
According to ancient Hindu texts our Soul has evolved from the Soul of a Cow. The reason given behind this theory is of great importance and interesting.
So let me narrate this to you :
Hindus don’t worship cows. We respect, honour and adore the cow. By honouring this gentle animal, who gives more than she takes, we honour all creatures.
Hindus regard all living creatures as sacred – mammals, fishes, birds and more. We acknowledge this reverence for life in our special affection for the cow. At festivals we decorate and honour her, but we do not worship her in the sense that we worship the Deity.
To the Hindu, the cow symbolizes all other creatures. The cow is a symbol of the Earth, the nourisher, the ever-giving, undemanding provider. The cow represents life and the sustenance of life. The cow is so generous, taking nothing but water, grass and grain. It gives and gives and gives of its milk, as does the liberated soul give of his spiritual knowledge. The cow is so vital to life, the virtual sustainer of life, for many humans. The cow is a symbol of grace and abundance. Veneration of the cow instils in Hindus the virtues of gentleness, receptivity and connectedness with nature.
Elaboration: Who is the greatest giver on planet Earth today? Who do we see on every table in every country of the world –breakfast, lunch and dinner? It is the cow. McDonald’s cow-vending golden arches and their rivals have made fortunes on the humble cow. The generous cow gives milk and cream, yogurt and cheese, butter and ice cream, ghee and buttermilk. It gives entirely of itself through sirloin, ribs, rump, porterhouse and beef stew. Its bones are the base for soup broths and glues. It gives the world leather belts, leather seats, leather coats and shoes, beef jerky, cowboy hats – you name it. The only cow-question for Hindus is, “Why don’t more people respect and protect this remarkable creature?” Mahatma Gandhi once said, “One can measure the greatness of a nation and its moral progress by the way it treats its animals. Cow protection to me is not mere protection of the cow. It means protection of all that lives and is helpless and weak in the world. The cow means the entire subhuman world.”
In the Hindu tradition, the cow is honoured, garlanded and given special feedings at festivals all over India, most importantly the annual Gopashtama festival. Demonstrating how dearly Hindus love their cows, colourful cow jewellery and clothing is sold at fairs all over the Indian countryside. From a young age, Hindu children are taught to decorate the cow with garlands, paint and ornaments. Her nature is epitomized in Kamadhenu, the divine, wish-fulfilling cow. The cow and her sacred gifts –milk and ghee in particular –are essential elements in Hindu worship, penance and rites of passage. In India, more than 3,000 institutions called Gaushalas, maintained by charitable trusts, care for old and infirm cows. And while many Hindus are not vegetarians, most respect the still widely held code of abstaining from eating beef.
By her docile, tolerant nature, the cow exemplifies the cardinal virtue of Hinduism, noninjury, known as ahimsa. The cow also symbolizes dignity, strength, endurance, maternity and selfless service.
In the Vedas, cows represent wealth and joyous Earthly life. From the Rig Veda (4.28.1;6) we read. “The cows have come and have brought us good fortune. In our stalls, contented, may they stay! May they bring forth calves for us, many-coloured, giving milk for Indra each day. You make, O cows, the thin man sleek; to the unlovely you bring beauty. Rejoice our homestead with pleasant lowing. In our assemblies we laud your vigour.”
As cow possess all the qualities of a mother in true sense, we call and consider her as our mother. Mother in sense that out soul has taken birth from her. And finally made us what we are today.
Thank you. Hope it would help.

1. Indians teach the world to co-exist harmoniously 
With 1.2 billion people, 29 states, 7 union territories, 780 spoken languages, 7 major religions, 82237 registered newspapers, India truly is a concoction of variety and an amalgam of diversity in every sphere of life. 
We Indians accept this huge spectrum of multiplicity with open arms and happily co-exist with each other ‘complementing’ and not ‘competing’ with our fellow Indians. 
2. Indians unite in adversity
Whether It was the ruthless attack on Mumbai by terrorists in 2008, the floods in north India in 2013, or crime against women, the nation took to the street, united in protesting and raising voices against the atrocities and fighting for a crime free India.
3. We have a culture that prizes compassion

India adopts the policy of Non-Violence and No encroachment of any neighbour land.
The Policy of Non-Violence has been appreciated by Former President of America Barack Obama.
These policies are very difficult to follow. Because there were many occasions where Pakistan had encroached our land and we have driven them out of our territory without encroaching their land as a revenge.
After these many years of Independence, India has been teaching these two principles.

India has already taught the value of 'Zero' to the world. What can be taught is: 
Community living: To live a secure and good life it is important to live as a coherent community regardless of the statues and cast. Thou most of the times the cast system and classes are highlighted in the media, which is quite unlucky, but majority of the people in Indian live as a community.
Acceptance of generation gap: We Indians know that times have changed since our ancestors, and we  accept it without complains.
