Physical Map of India


An image of a country...

You may recognize this image as a physical map of India. Compared to China, the land is quite small, only (hehe) about 1,269,010 sq. mi. However, India is a great country. How great? Well, you can just ask Hu Shih (former ambassador of China of US), he said:

"India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without ever having to send a single soldier across her border!"

Another great fact that you probably did not know is India did not invade any other country over the last 10,000 years. Yet, I cannot say the same to China and Vietnam. A little side note, 10,000 years is the same amount of time as India's own history.

The proud capital city of India is New Delhi. Due to the large land mass, India has divided itself into 28 different states and 7 union territories. The largest state is Rajasthan (northwest), which consists of 342,236 km2. Jaipur is the largest city and the capital of the state. You may ask what are they famous for? Well, have you eaten fried food lately? If you have, you may owe India for it. Yep, Jaipur is among the world's largest producers of cooking oil and second in oilseeds.

Here is the state map:

My religions are...

When we talk about India, religion is always the follow up subject. The natives of India have such a variety of different types of religions that they themselves do not even know the answers to all the questions. We can summarize it down to 5 main religions, which are Hindu, Christian, Buddhist, Sikhs, and Muslim.

I have covered the statistics of each religion in the Indian population here. However, in this article I will cover a little more detail by using a visual map, which gives you a better view.

India Religion

India is quite a land mass for people to travel. Over the years, there are many different types of transportation that have been provided to the Indian people such as car, plane, ship and train to help aid in travel. With all the choices for transportation being provided to the people, it still does not mean they use it. The reason why the people do not use the provided transportation is simply that they cannot afford it. India has of a large number of beggars, enough to the point they are able to compete with the Chinese in this department (quite sad, really).

While the majority of different types of transportation are not being used as much as they could be, the one that is would be the train. India's rail network is considered to be the fourth busiest network in the world, transporting over 6 billion passengers yearly. The only problem with this picture is the government owns 100% of the railways, meaning there is no capitalism opportunity here.

So, what is your opinion? Please, don't hesitate to let me know. Thank you, guys. From where I am and wherever you are, always be cautious when you are using the public transportation. (I have heard a lot of weird things have happened on the train)
