Living in India

India is a large and highly populated country in Southern Asia. It has two main coastlines adjacent to the Bay Bengal in the east, and the Arabian Sea in the west. Its northern border is shared with many countries; moving clockwise across the border from the west, it is shared with Pakistan, China, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar and Bangladesh. Only China has a larger population than India, which in 2016 had an estimated 1,324,000,000 inhabitants. However, some projections suggest that, due to China’s population control policies, India will soon surpass it to become the World’s most populated country. India is a land of history, religion and culture. The Taj Mahal is one of India’s architectural pinnacles, and its design is one that showcases various ancient styles. Indian literature dates back over 3500 years but continues to be significant to this day with new writings receiving acclaim as well as the ancient texts maintaining prominence. Indian cinema, in terms of the number of viewers, is the World’s leading film market; Bollywood is probably the most identifiable export within this industry. The role of family is significant in Indian culture, and multiple generations of families often reside together; arranged marriages are also common in the country.
