‘Diverse’ is perhaps the best word to describe the sub-continent of India. With a massive coastline, over 1.3 billion people and a history that reaches back to the ancient Indus Civilization, you have a country that cannot be summed up easily. Though Hindi is the official language, the constitution recognizes 22 other languages with English given a ‘subsidiary language status’ because of its extensive use in business. India is also home to the Himalayan mountains as well as tropical jungles. Every major religion has found its way to this beautiful country as well, though Hinduism is practiced by 79% of the population.
