My home country India.

As I specified in my first blog post, India is my country and I wants it to be a part of my every actions. This is the only way I can show my love to her. So I am going to provide a complete view about India. I will try my level best to provide maximum good information’s.
India is a large triangular shaped sub-continent separated from the rest of Asia mainly by the Himalayan Mountains in the north, Arabian sea in the west, Bay of Bengal in the east and Indian ocean in the south. India is an independent republic comprising three fourths of the former British India. The republic of India was formerly known as Bharat. India got its Independence on 15th of August 1947.This day is celebrated as Independence day.  
India is, after China, the world’s second populous country. India’s population is growing much faster. Whereas in China the population growth rate had been reducing annually. The local density of people in India varies. Low density occurs in mountainous, arid or jungle areas, such as the Himalayas, the Thar Desert, and parts of northeast peninsular hills. High densities are usually associated with good rainfall and alluvial soil, as in the southeast and southwest coastal area, the east coast deltas and Gangetic plain. Kerala is the most populous state in India.
Now I wanted to provide some information on Indian languages. An accurate census of Indian languages, however, is difficult to obtain since in transitional zones many people speaks two or more languages with equal facility and  may designate any one of these as the mother tongue, and because the census classification themselves are often arbitrary. Most spoken languages in India include Hindi, Telugu, Punjabi, Marathi, Tamil, Rajasthani and Hindustani. Bengali, Kashmiri, Gujarati, Oriya, Assamese and Kannada are other mostly spoken languages. Hindi is the national language. It is also the official language, as it should be easy for any Indo-Aryan speaker to learn. An important aspect of the language problem is the insistent agitation, begun under the British rule but culminating in 1956, for “linguistic states”. The major political divisions in India are now based on distinctions of languages; this has obvious convenience in matters of education and popular culture but perhaps also has separatist overtones.
I am concluding my second post. But you just remember this is not my India. This is just a part of my India. I will continue posting about India in near future. My next post will be about tourism in India. This is just an introduction of my country. If you want topics related to India, please respond to me. I will try my level best to provide, if I am possible. Just wait a few days for the next post.
