As Confucius once said, ” Wherever you go, Go with all your heart”. Let’s go to India this time.
India is a beautiful country. The Himalayas in the north are the most picturesque mountains of all. The Arabian Sea in the south-west, the Bay of Bengal in the south-east and the mighty Indian Ocean in the south, providing a wonderful coastline. It’s the land of the exotics as one said. India is well known for ancient architecture, natural wonders, scenic landscapes and of course it’s beautiful, ever so generous and humble people.
India is the seventh largest of countries and the second most populous in the world with the population over 1.2 billion people. It has an incredibly long history and diverse culture and is home to various people from different ethnics speaking multiple languages and many following various religions. It is also home to amazing wildlife in protected habitats.
We often misjudge India for a poor, corrupt country (blame it on movies like “Slumdog Millionaire and other Hollywood/Bollywood movies. Neither is India a country of snake charmers.”, but it is actually the seventh largest economy in terms of nominal GDP and third largest in terms of Purchasing Power Parity (PPP). It’s one of the fastest growing economies in the world as on now and is considered a newly industrialized country. Not to forget that it has the third largest standing army in the world. Apart from that, the entertainment and film industry is among the best in the world. It really is a very diverse country with amazing people.
India got its independence on 15th August 1947. So today, we celebrate it’s Independence Day via sharing some awesome photographs of India. You’ll Love the diversity and traditions and the colors, hospitality along with the architecture and festivals. See for yourself!
