India is a really cool place! Here are some of the basic facts that I learned from my research. First, the population of India is quite large, sitting at 1.3 billion. It is predicted to surpass the population of China by the year 2028. Next, The capital city is New Delhi, which has 21.75 million people. Mumbai is the second largest most populated city in the country. It is a financial center and very densely populated. Mumbai is also known for being the heart of the Bollywood film industry. India has more than 20 official languages, but the two main ones are Hindi and English. Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity are the main religions. Some important historical dates to note are first 1600 bc, the British “colonize” India with the East India trading company. In 1858, the country comes under complete British rule. During 1920, Mahatma Gandhi began nonviolent protests which eventually led to India’s independence. India is a cool place and I am excited to continue researching it!
