How did Indian civilization survive longest in history?

India, as a cultural package is notable for its antiquity, continuity, assimilation, diversity and refinement and is wrapped in one unmistakable package: survivability. The reason of continuity in the Indian civilization in comparison to Greek, Roman or Egyptian civilizations is because the foundation principle is to sit together calmly and think deeply on the issues humans face in their life while other civilizations were busy doing warfare and conquests on neighbors. The best emperors in India were Asoka and Akbar and both expounded the path of unity in diversity and they created golden ages in India. Even in the modern world, India has never attacked another country first.

I am waiting for the day when majority population in India realizes this fact and then we will have another golden age as Indian civilization has had in past.
