Hi Pradeep,

We've fixed the issue this weekend:


Note however that this fix is specifically targetted at Indian users and 
Indian schools since this represents Indian official mapping policies only.

You can download the patch from the bugreport web page above.

For the Marble main distribution we try to adhere to UN/international
consense where possible, so the patch is currently not considered for 
inclusion (until we find a better solution that will please all users 

Some of the Marble authors from Germany grew up with a generation of 
grandparents who fleed after World War II from the former eastern Germany to 
West-Germany and they were still longing back to their former homes of Germany 
(and therefore partially also to the old boundaries). 
Others were living in the Germany Democratic Republic and on both sides people 
were longing for a reunification of both West Germany and East Germany. As you 
might know we were very lucky that this reunification eventually happened 
peacefully in 1989.

I know this is not exactly the same as areas that are still internationally 
understood to be under dispute. I just want to emphasize that we have a bit of 
an idea what this issue might mean to you.

And I just hope that you don't understand it as a form of disrespect that we 
have this policy.

I hope the solution provided in the bugreport will make you happy :-) If you 
have any issues left don't hesitate to provide further feedback.

Best Regards,
