|India changing its name to Bharat because the name India was given by colonials, not natives.|

Similar to China calling the capital Beijing instead of Peking.
India already has changed the names of cities back to their Sanskit forms (Mumbai instead of Bombay).
I actually think one other huge reason the Indian /Bharati government wants to change it is so that they can assign blame for losing the war with Pakistan (they broke off from India in the war) to a completely different country. heh
Hindus can often be unbelievably petty about ego things and humiliation - so that would be a good way for the current government to separate itself from past failures.
