Mini Guide to India:

What Should I Know About India?
It’s one of the most frenetic countries on earth with a huge population that all seem to be going to different places all at once. You take your life in your hands even walking in the big cities, let alone drive in them! It was a big part of the British Empire and the country is still heavily influenced by Britain. English is spoken almost everywhere and many of the British values and habits, long disappeared at home, are still an important part of Indian life.

Despite huge advances in the economy there is still a wide gap between the rich, who are getting ever richer, and the destitute who can find little way out of their predicament.  The country is a very colourful one, both in the landscapes and in the people and whilst a holiday there is unlikely to be relaxing unless you’re on a beach in Goa, Orissa or Kerala, you’ll certainly never forget it.

How do I get to India?
As a major economic power as well as a tourist hotspot, India has several large international airports including Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai, all of which have many connections to European cities and the UK. Air India and BA are the two main operators from London to India whilst several oriental airlines also have selected flights. Within the country, domestic flights are essential as the distances between major cities and regions can be enormous and the infrastructure limited to say the least. Internal flights are very reasonably priced and are quick and efficient.

What Should I not Miss Seeing in India?
It depends on how long you’ve got and whether you’re prepared to travel around. The Taj Mahal, promoted as a ‘monument to love’, is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and should be on everyone’s itinerary. The Pink City of Jaipur with its remarkable buildings is another breath-taking sight and then north again you have the views of the foothills of the Himalayas. To the south you have the tropical beaches of Goa and Kerala and everywhere, the hustle and bustle of the major cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata. Try to take some time to ride an elephant or to tiger spot in the sanctuaries of the north.

What Should I eat in India?
If you like Indian food back home, make it your mission to try real Indian food in the country that developed it. The tastes, ingredients and heat of the food vary between the regions and you can do a ‘food tour’ of the nation, enjoying the variety on offer. And as long as you are reasonably sensible, you’re not likely to encounter any digestive problems!

India's Population Explosion

It was been billed as the world’s biggest counting operation, in 2011, the Indian census was completed and made for staggering reading. The population of the sub continent was now an enormous 1.21bn. This translates to a rise of nearly 20% since the last census ten years ago equating to an extra 181m people, the equivalent of the population of Brazil. At its current rate of growth, which admittedly is slowing, India is set to overtake China as the most populous country within 20 years.

Interesting sub sets of statistics have been thrown up by the census; Many more boys than girls are being born or surviving, continuing the trend for preferences for boys. This is because traditionally boys are breadwinners and girls if they marry are expected to take with them a dowry or if they remain with their families, they become a financial burden.

International agencies are concerned that the difference isn’t though natural causes and question why girls have less right to a life than boys. The situation is worsening according to the census as the number of girls born for every thousand boys dropped by 13 since the last count. In total, there are now nearly 40m more men than women in the country.

Some good news from the figures show that the literacy rate has increased substantially from 65% to 74%. The census was launched last year and involved over 2.7m officials visiting homes across the nation, even in remote areas or those where there is the threat of personal danger. It is hoped that the census will help the country plan for the future in terms of food production, fuel, housing, education and climate change.
