Geography & Demographics

The second most populous country in the world, with over 1 billion people, India is one of the fastest growing major economies in the world. India borders the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea. The nation itself is a distinct geographical entity as it stands apart, separated by mountains and the sea, from the rest of Asia entirely; it is divided into four regions, the Himalayan Mountains, Ganges, Indus, and the southern desert.

The nation's climate varies greatly, due to the enormous size of the country and span of its borders. Other than Spring and Autumn, in general, the northern parts of India tend to be cooler, between the months of September and March. On the other hand, the coolest months in the south are November, December, and January. June is one of the rainiest times of the year due to the south-west monsoon, as well as from October to December, when the north-east monsoon is in effect.

Although there are several hundreds of dialects spoken, India only recognizes 14 official languages nationally. English is utilized most frequently when it comes to national, political, and commercial communications generally, though Hindi is the most widely spoken language overall. India’s official currency is the Indian Rupee (INR).

Food & Culture

Indian cuisine is well known for being some of the spiciest in the world, and has been highly influenced by historic events, such as foreign invasions, trade relations, and colonialism. Vegetarianism is an ever-growing dietary trend in Indian society, though lamb and chicken dishes remain common. The staple ingredient in almost every aroma-filled Indian meal is Basmati rice, served with almost every meal. Indian dishes are world-renown for the spices, which are utilized so effectively in every dish to create a plethora of incredible tastes. Commonly used spices in Indian cuisine include, various curries, ginger, coriander, cardamom, turmeric, dried hot peppers, fennel seeds, cinnamon, cumin, and many others. 

Religion is a very important aspect of Indian culture. Home to eight religions, the country is also the birthplace of Hinduism and Buddhism. A huge majority of the Indian people are Hindu, about 13 percent are Muslims, and the remaining consider themselves Christians, Sikhs, or Buddhists.

Things to Do

There are a number of festivals celebrated in India. Three main national holidays are celebrated by everyone anywhere in the country, Independence Day, Republic Day, and Gandhi Jayanti, to honor Mahatma Gandhi. Several religious holidays are celebrated by groups of individuals across the country, which include Diwali or the Festival of Lights, Dussehra or the anniversary of the victory of the goddess Durga over a buffalo-headed demon, and Holi or the festival of colors. All of these festivals create an incredible cultural experience for interns, and at least one must be attended to truly understand how Indians celebrate cultural events.
