I think they both mean India; it's just that hindustan has a more religious connotation.

Hi Oriana Thank you for your participation in our forum. Your answer is correct. Both words mean India. भारत-bhārata has Sanskrit origin. हिंदुस्तान-hindustān has Persian origin. Hindu + Stan=Hindustan means a place where Hindus live. Have a wonderful day. John H8
