If you are visiting anywhere in India on January 26, you can experience the colorful parades and excitement of the country’s national holiday. Many say it is one of the greatest shows on earth, showcasing India’s tribal traditions and cultures in all their diversity.

Let us find on this occasion an amazing information in regards to this vast country.

Area wise, India is the 7th largest country in the world. There are so many other countries across the globe which are way smaller than India’s individual states.

But, we cannot forget the fact that despite of being the 7th largest country area wise, India has  the world’s second largest population. Now, this is a bit off proportion, isn’t it? So, let me show you how disproportionate and crowded India actually is, although I’m sure you have a neat idea.

We inspired by an image made by Reddit user garaile64 that picked countries which have the same area as 29 different states of India. Then we wondered about the staggering difference in the population & decided to make a comparison. The area mentioned is a round figure of the average of both the state and the country’s area. Have a look.

Except Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram & Sikkim, all the other 26 states are bypassing their parallel country’s population by a huge margin. It’s not news to us that ‘population’ is one of the biggest problems India is facing, but every time you look at such statistics, it hits you hard.
