    It’s really interesting to note that a majority of India’s population is not concentrated in the major urban city centers like most countries in the world!

    • Arindam Paul
      Arindam Paul 4 days ago +2

      It is because it is very packed. When I grew up in India, I grew up in the densest region of the country (state of West Bengal) and then went to college in a sparser northwest part. It is not that the cities are less dense / they are very dense and more dense than the suburban and rural areas. It’s just that the population density is say 12x times the US. But, it is true that the cities probably doesn’t have 12x more density than American cities - more like 4x but then the suburban and rural areas are much more dense 20x than American cities.
      The difference also is that unlike counties like China where very few people live in 85% of the country. This is simply not true for India. Yes there is a line but the difference in density is not as stark.
      Another thing is concept of urban centers. Lucknow metro area - capital of Uttar Pradesh - largest state by population is 2.9 million people. The East of the line also includes the capital Delhi with more than 16 million people as well as the colonial capital Kolkata (erstwhile Calcutta) at 14 million people. Kolkata and Delhi instead has more people than Australia.
      More examples of other urban centers to the East of the line include two more cities in Uttar Pradesh which comprise about 2.5 million each, and many many cities which have between 1-2 million people in the metro areas. For comparison, Finland capital Helsinki population is 700,000. Stockholm - largest among Nordic countries is just less than a million - about same as Agra (Taj Mahal).
      The south has more tech and finance hubs and so more popular in the West. But, there are many many (more than 15) urban centers in the East which would be larger than capitals of most counties.

    I traveled overland from Chennai to Kochi, across the dry plains of Tamil Nadu, over the Western Ghats, and down into the lush jungles of Kerala. Aside from the region being fascinating culturally, the geographic diversity of South India is incredible. The best of this was Munnar, where the climate is just right for mass tea production. The verdant hills covered with tea plantations makes it one of the most beautiful places I've visited.

      @Snehil Jain Firstly,not all Muslim people can be affected by or take these “maulana” people seriously,secondly even if you are ordered by these maulanas to not do specific things of believe in other things,a person can just simply ignore them and keep doing what they want to and if they’re feeling too troubled by it they can leave the religion altogether,it’s very easy to do in India and they can get support if they’re pressured.
      Also,there are secular rules for minorities and people of other faiths in Kuwait and Qatar,I’ve been to both countries myself and didn’t face any sort of discrimination at all,mostly because I don’t do any sort of religious practice like praying,wearing traditional clothes etc. anyways and so if you can avoid doing that,there is 0 chances of you facing any kind of discrimination there.And it’s not like you will be stripped off all human rights in Kuwait and Qatar,if someone attacks you just because you follow a different religion there,that person will be punished.There are a few countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia where people of other religious communities don’t have have some of the basic rights but that’s not true for all Islamic states.Although you cannot call them full secular countries,a persons chances of facing religion based discrimination in Kuwait,Qatar,UAE,Oman and even Bahrain are extremely low if that person doesn’t do stupid things like praying or wearing religious clothes in public and Qatar is definitely not trying to promote Islam using the fifa wc,they’re doing it to increase revenue through tourism,sales of merchandise and broadcasting just like all other countries that host the wc.
      Honestly,this religion stuff is just completely stupid to me and the only thing you need to do in order to not face any kind of religion based discrimination anywhere is to just know the rules of that place and not practice any religious activities(which are useless anyways).

    • Snehil Jain
      Snehil Jain 5 days ago +1

      ​@Charles Yes,
      1. actually in India, the maulana(religious leaders of muslim) issues a order every week for their community which explains what is against their religion & not, they somewhat misguide their own people, many muslim friends of mine also agrees that people in power in their community doesn't let them uplift themselves.
      2. Islamic states mainly UAE can have secular rules for minorities there. BUT kuwait, Saudi Arabia & Qatar are fully islamic states, they don't allow different religion people to pray on their land inside their own homes in those country. Mainly due to :
      one major philosophy of islam : people believe their Allah is the only god possible & others are kafir.
      other religion philosphies : people believe , i worship my god, you worship yours.
      This is the only major belief in islam which is the cause of almost every problem associated with, whether be it terrorism or other issues.
      3. Qatar is hosting FIFA but with full islamic influence, it's using this platform to spread their religion , i don't have any issue with it. since its a fully islamic state & we have to follow their own rules in their country but I won't call it a fair & secular nation like INDIA (where everyone has human rights atleast).
      4. I partially agree with you in this topic & won't be replying further(since i have exams from tomorrow , lol , need to study :)

    • Charles
      Charles 5 days ago

      @Snehil Jain well *if* your hypothesis is correct it means that most of the people in the Muslim community in *India* are plain stupid and dumb,it may be because they have not had access to proper education for a long time or they just don’t want to use their brains and develop.But none of the TV channels in India are very credible so we can’t say that what they show is what really happens.But let me remind you that not all Muslim dominated countries discriminate people on the basis of religion widely,turkey and Lebanon practice a very strict kind of secularism which is not even followed in India or the US,it is called the French secularism approach and is practiced in very few countries except France and although UAE,Oman,Kuwait and Qatar are technically Islamic states,there is very less religion based discrimination there.Qatar is even hosting the fifa wc,that would definitely not have happened if religion based discrimination was very prominent there.

    • Snehil Jain
      Snehil Jain 5 days ago +2

      @Charles That's also what i thought in the first place but in case of India, muslim population has grown from 2cr to 27cr after 1947. Mainly because of you think about their mentality, i have seen those in interviews in TV channels, these people say, like "children are given by Allah & we're gonna make them atleast 7-8 per family" .
      That's what I'm pointing out of majority poor indian muslims mentality, idk how they got it.. but in every state they're producing at a very rapid fast pace & even this community is neither educated much nor financially stable.
      Many of the islamic groups in India have a mission of making Muslim as an majority so that they can declare India as a islamic state asap.
      Can you point even one majority muslim country which is Secular?
      All of them are islamic right, same thing these people are planning in India to convert from Secular to Islamic, by producing more.

    As a non-Indian, I always think the Brahmaputra river deserves more attention. It's not as famous as Nile, Amazon, or Mississippi, but Brahmaputra's trail is simply equally impressive, originating from high plateau of Tibet and flowing through vast portion of Tibet as well, carving through Himalayas to create some of the deepest valleys around the world, and when the river actually reaches the lowland of India, the sheer scale of the river becomes simply mighty. I haven't been to India to see the river myself, but just the photos and footage on the Internet already amaze me.

    Partly true, the majority of population growth in bordering states ( Bihar, Assam and Meghalaya) is due to exploding population growth amongst Muslims and the mass infiltration of Bangladeshi Muslims through these porous borders.
    Turkey and Pakistan along with several middle eastern nations (Saudi, Kuwait, Iraq) colluded in this notorious act so that the demography of this country can be changed. It is appalling to see that the most of these bordering states now have Muslim majority ( near Dehradun, Kishanganj in Bihar, several districts in West Bengal, Assam, Manipur, and Meghalaya).

    As a South Indian(from Karnataka), our dams and other infrastructure have become part of our identity. They have literally transformed our lands from arid, infertile patches to land that can even grow rice. The Krishnaraja Sagara Dam(KRS) in particular is a tourist attraction for us but most non-Kannadigas don't understand why we travel 100s of kilometres to cherish a wall of concrete so much lol.

      @Bonemarrow Are you just gonna ignore the agricultural belt in South Karnataka? Mandya, Mysore, Hassan districts are not hilly and rugged, even tumkur and chamrajnagar depend on kaveri and to not mention supplying a Metropolis of 13 million+ population nearby. They are very productive producing lots of sugarcane, rice, millet. It's just one of the perks of being an upstream state. We can't just choose to utilize Krishna more efficiently, both Krishna and Bhima originate in Maharashtra- similar sutation you guys face with kaveri but here there are three states that share the river, it would be even more troublesome to deal with. Only Tungabhadra runs through the state but it's mostly the central part not north karnataka. Also climate wise the North is naturally more arid than South. So I don't know where you're getting "north karnataka is better suited for agriculture" from.

More developed parts tend to have lower fertility rates for the same reason we see it in highly industrialized countries and cities.

    South India also had the very same high population rate, some decades ago. The governments in these states educated the people to control the population. The same was not done in Northern states.

But these 250 days are often just a near-constant slow light rain mist. In terms of actual inches of rain, these cities are actually on par with places like New York and Chicago.

    My hometown was on the edge of Western Ghats and believe me, the amount of rainfall most places in India receive is something most Westerners cannot comprehend.. It is genuinely an ungodly amount of rain to the point that it is more destructive than helpful to agriculture.. Also most of the water goes back to the Arabian Sea and some of it flows eastward..
    I moved to Toronto a few years ago and I can guarantee you that what people might call an afternoon's worth of rain in India will overflow Toronto's Don River and flood the road..

    I am from Chhattisgarh- a tiny anamoly between the north and south divide. You might have noticed in the precipitation map that a deep blue stretch was seen in the middle of the country. That's the Mahanadi Basin. The name "Mahanadi" literally translates to "The Great River". Mahanadi is one of the biggest rivers of the country and the river provides continuous water supply to Chhattisgarh forming an arch and thus a wonderful river basin. Chhatiisgarh on a political map looks like a sea horse, but on a topographical map looks like a sink, or a bowl. Its surrounded by hills- a segment of Aravalli mountain ranges and various other hills that trap the monsoon winds forming almost a lake like catchment. This generates a suitable enviornment if paddy plantation which is why CG is also a leading producer of rice. The population of Chhattisgarh is quite low compared to other states, however its still more than the entire population of Australia.

    As far as the population explosion is concerned, the damage was done 30-40 years ago when the fertility was over 3 for most of india, as shown in the video the fertility rate is either at 2 or even below that, its fallen so rapidly that some researches even fear that India might grow old before it can actually become rich so you can't even introduce aggressive population control policies like China did. Unfortunately, the 2 states that stick out like a sore thumb in almost every statistic about India and its states, the same states also contribute to nearly 30% of india's population.

      RJ is not "95% desert" your data source seems to be wrong., and also if that is the metric 70+% of South India is arid/semi-arid (actually) as well with just the coastal areas fertile & wet.
      WRT UP, BR, WB being populous that is true - but unlike South India they aren't dependant on basic food from other parts of the country (which South India is, especially its urban centers).
      It sounds nice I know, but data is complex, and the statistical reality is different. Also, S India is as rife with casteism, irrational religiousity and ritualism and violent crime and prejudice as any part of India. Evidently their higher "education" isn't helping. Kerala is #2 after Delhi in violent and economic crime, and AP, TG, TN are also in top 10.

      @RiderChallenge Well, most accurate city population measurements are done by metropolitan area. Mumbai has a larger population *by city proper*. A city only has a larger population by its proper when the proper includes land not part of the metropolitan area. If the metropolitan area exceeds the city proper, the metropolitan area will give you a larger population estimate.

Families live in small house and they have 3-4 kids. 5-7 memeber. 5-10 Migrant labourers live in small house. And these all slums are illegal and made by cutting down trees and mangroves. And ya they don't even have voting rights. Some have bt they are illegal. They also have 2-2 adhar cards. They live in slums cuz living in slums is cheaper than any city and or state in india. They don't pay tax nor any maintenance. Except some amount they pay for slum mafias. I mean just see residential areas where slums are not their. Population of those areas are less.
