India is surrounded by Pakistan in the North West, China & Nepal in the North, Bhutan & Bangladesh in the northeast, Myanmar in the east & by Sri Lanka in the south.

The main rivers of India are Ganga, Yamuna, Brahmaputra, Godavari, Kaveri, Narmada & Krishna. The capital of the country is located in New Delhi with the third-largest military force in the world.
Indian economy is one of the fasted growing economies in Asia. India is the seventh most prosperous country in the world, with a total individual wealth of 5.6 trillion dollars.
India is a global example of unity in diversity. It is a resident to several religion people out of which five are major, i.e. Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Sikhism.

India is the largest democracy in the world, with one of the most sensible constitutions in the world. The government of India was formed after India got Independence from Great Britain in 1949.
It has twenty-nine states & eight union territories. Government of India is divided into three parts, i.e. the Legislative, the Executive & the Judiciary for smooth functioning.
India is also home for rich heritage, culture & literature. Taj Mahal of India is counted in one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Cave painting, rock sculptures are found across the country.
Thousands to tourists visit every year to experience these in person. The variety of folk songs & dances which varies across its states gives one of the unique identity to the country.
Though India is not on the top, we are doing well in education, healthcare & technology. IITs, NITs, IIMs are considered one of the best institutes in the world for studies.
The literacy rate in India has improved to 74.04% from 12% in 1949. India is a hub for best quality health care facilities in low price. India is the third country in Asia to send a spacecraft to Mars in 2014 & the first country to be successful in its first attempt.
India is the first country in the world to launch over a hundred satellites in one mission. Bollywood industry is one of the largest movie industry in the world, generating much revenue in a year.
India is still fighting a few severe problems like poverty, unemployment, illiteracy & technological advancement. It cannot be denied that we have a long way to move in these fronts.
However, I can say this proudly that we have come so far & we will achieve more in the coming future. I am thankful to God to be part of such a beautiful country. We all should come forward & do our part to make India the best.
