About India
 
India is a country in South Asia. It is the 7th largest country in the world and second most populous. Four major world religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism originated here, while Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Zoroastrianism arrived in the first millennium C.E. and have shaped India's varied culture. India finally became a modern nation state in 1947 after a long struggle for independence. Although India has the second fastest growing economy in the world, it still battles poverty, illiteracy, and persistent malnutrition.

India's regions range from the Himalayan peaks of Ladakh to the desert kingdoms of Rajasthan to the bustling energy of Delhi and Mumbai to equatorial tropics of Kerala. India has tremendous biodiversity and is home to 6.7% of all mammals, 12% of apes, 6% of reptiles and 6% of all flowering plants on Earth.

On the societal side, India is the largest democracy in the world and has the world's largest Hindu population as well as the world's second largest Muslim population. Altogether, several hundred languages are spoken in India including twenty-four with over one million speakers. India is home to many World Heritage sites, including the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Humayun's Tomb, Fatehpur Sikir, Konark Sun Temple, Qutub Minar, Sanchi Stupa as well as countless castles, temples and pilgrimage points.
 
Business Powerhouse
 
Over the last fifteen years, India has brought itself to the center stage of the world economy. India's engineering and technical strengths are legendary. India has become a powerhouse in software development and business process outsourcing and is making great strides in manufacturing and other high technology fields. There is no doubt that India will be a major economic force in the 21st century, though it will face significant challenges in developing infrastructure and spreading these economic gains to its still overwhelmingly rural population.
 
Why Study in India?
 
India has been a major seat of learning for thousands of years. While some of the country's universities (BITS, ISB, IITs, IIITs, NITs, IISc, TIFR, ISI, IIMs, AIIMS) are among the world's well-renowned, it is also dealing with challenges in its primary education and strives to reach 100% literacy. Universal Compulsory Primary Education, with its challenges of keeping poor children in school and maintaining quality of education in rural areas, has been difficult to achieve and (Kerala is the only Indian state to reach this goal so far). All levels of education, from primary to higher education, are overseen by Department of Higher Education (India) and Department of School Education and Literacy, and heavily subsidized by the Indian government, though there is a move to make higher education partially self-financing. Indian Government is considering to allow 100% foreign direct investment in Higher Education.
