If you do, you will be entered into the diplomatic databases and will stay there forever. Whenever you apply for a visa in the future, all consuls from all Schengen countries are required by law to check those databases, and they will see why you were denied.Never, but ever, think for a minute that you are smarter than a consul or that you can fool them. They have lots of experience with people who are hiding important information, and they will see right through you.Also, any consul in India is going to assume that any documents presented to him are fake until proven otherwise. Indians have a stupid habit of presenting counterfeit or altered documents. It's not a big deal in India. To a European, however, presenting false documents is like raping your wheel-chair-bound grandmother.
