All Around This World South Asia Map featuring India

Where else could we possibly start our online class tour of South and Central Asia than India, a country with 1.15 billion people and counting? India is the world’s most populous democracy and boasts the world’s longest national constitution, the preamble of which defines India as a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic and technically promotes equality despite the country’s deep and ancient system of castes. India is simultaneously  one of the world’s largest economies and one of its poorest countries.
