I got idea to start this thread in part from one of the the Mehwish complain in â€˜Why should Manipur remain in India?â€™ thread, that indian are mostly ignorant about other states other than the one they live -in and partly from the thread with similar topic on BR DFI being the conglomeration of indians from various states it can be a nice platform to make members and others who read DFI make aware about the particular states' cultural,socio-economic and other related issues. So I request members to pour in the knowledge about their states displaying various aspects of its.here would like to quote part of shiv's post.... some of the the graph and map of india showing literacy and pop density and indians states fertility rates.... courtesy anuj at BR... General note to all posters...... Plz Post following info about ur states..... 1.general facts and figures like formation day,area,population,literacy rates,population density etc 2.healthcare info like--child mortality,maternal mortality etc 3. natural resources 4.economic conditions 5.major industries. 6. places for tourists attraction. ** you can follow the rough MP example as i 've posted or better than that. Most important----from now various posters posts will get mixed up and will not be continuous flow of info about your state so plz mention your state name in each and every post of yours.
