═════════════════════ 10 Fun Facts About India ═══════════════════════
1. India is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.
2. India has a closed currency meaning tourists are not legally permitted to leave or come into India with any more than Rs. 5,000 Indian Rupees, which is roughly $75 USD. Which basically means that any change you have left over from your stay, can go in and out of India, but nothing more.
3. The world's biggest family lives together in India, a man with 39 wives and 94 children. They live in a 100-room, four storey house set amidst the hills of Baktwang village in the Indian state of Mizoram, where the wives sleep in giant communal dormitories.
4. Over 70% of the world's spices is produced by India.
5. India has one of the world's lowest meat consumption per capita. At a rate of only 3.8kg of beef, pork, poultry and lamb per capita per year, it is by far one of the lowest meat consuming nations of the developing world. This is likely in large part due to the indian vegetarian diet.
6. India's "Go Air" airline made headlines in mid 2013 when it only hired female flight attendants because they are lighter, helping the company save up to US$500,000 per year in fuel. However this is no longer the case.
7. The Golden Temple in India feeds a vegetarian meal to over 100,000 people a day regardless of race, religion and class. The kitchen never stops and on an average 7,000 kg of wheat flour, 1,200 kg of rice, 1,300 kg of lentils, 500 kg of ghee is used in preparing the meals every day. The kitchen is run with the help of hundreds of other volunteers.
8. Indian housewives hold 11% of the World's Gold. That is more than the reserves of the U.S., IMF, Switzerland and Germany put together. The gold mostly comes from wedding jewellry.
9. South Talpatti (as it was known in Bangladesh), or New Moore (as it is known in India), was a small uninhabited offshore sandbar in the Bay of Bengal. It emerged in the aftermath of the Bhola cyclone in 1970. Although the island was uninhabited and there were no permanent settlements or stations located on it, both India and Bangladesh claimed sovereignty over it because of speculation over the existence of oil and natural gas in the region. The dispute was settled after rising sea levels from global warming submerged the island.
10. The Indian Army during World War II began the war, in 1939, numbering just under 200,000 men. By the end of the war it had become the largest volunteer army in history, rising to over 2.5 million men in August 1945. Serving in divisions of infantry, armour and a fledgling airborne force, they fought on three continents in Africa, Europe and Asia.
