          Know About  India  

     It is best to see India as a country of countries. With close to a fifth of the world population, it is quite humungous & bewildering to see it like a regular country. Each of the 29 states are big enough to be a country. 
      For instance, the largest state by population, Uttar Pradesh has more people than Russia, Canada and Australia put together. The state of Maharashtra is comparable to Mexico's population. State of Bihar is France, Netherlands, Greece, Belgium and Portugal put together.
       Understand the differences between our various states here: What state in India does what best?

 India had the largest of Bronze Age civilizations along the Indus Valley. In the past 5000 years of civilizations plenty of interesting things happened. A quick summary of Indian history: How did the map of India change from 1 AD to the 20th century?


Travel in India - curious Indians

      India is among the top 4 most biologically diverse countries in the world that is from our unique geography [with lions, tigers, snow leopards and rhinos in natural habitat]. Then there is a huge architectural diversity caused from past riches. Then there is a massive cultural diversity from being a hub in the Indian Ocean. And then there is a culinary diversity.

Celebrity Culture:

 Like the US, we are crazy about our films and celebrity. In fact, Bollywood [one of the 20 film industries in India] is the second biggest movie industry in the world. 
            As I already mentioned, each state has its own movie industry. 
Bollywood just happens to be from the most prosperous state. Popular Culture: Is there any nation more obsessed with celebrities than the USA?

Marriages & Weddings: 

Of course, outsiders are often confused by some of our unique customs on these. I mean, we still have arranged marriages as the primary institution.
      How do you make sense of it? Here you go: Marriage, Mango and the Monsoon: Quora book on Marriage in India 


Know the Politics of India

         We are a representative democracy like the US, but follow the UK's system of Parliament. Although our states have sufficient autonomy, we are a little less Federal than the US. 

        Comparison of US & Indian political systems: What are the advantages and disadvantages of America's political party system over India's?

Freedom movement:

 Indians are very proud of their freedom movement to have thrown out colonialism. Until 1870, India was a top 2 economy throughout history (pink bar below).
