India’s Contributions

Here is a small list of India’s stats and figures compared to the rest of the world.

The following figures and facts are what I would term as India’s contributions towards the modern world. Many of these facts were attained from various websites such as Nation master, Wikipedia, Encyclopedia, India’s Tourism Ministry and other major sources. See the below figures as what India has compared to the rest of the world in Ranking. The facts are ordered by ranks for your viewing pleasure. All credits go towards their respective sources and towards me and my websites and Thank You

    “The Largest Peninsula in the world”??? What difference does that make? And the railroad only exists because the Brits built it.

    The key items you mention are the murder rate and the tremendous problem India has with poverty. Be proud of your country, but stop trying to brag about all the things done in ages past. What have YOU done for your country lately?

    hey Todd, who did the British use to make those rails? INDIANS!!

    Who fought your dirty wars for Europe in WWI and WWII in Africa, middle east and into the boot of Italy? INDIANS!!

    The least British could do is make railroads, after they exploited India. Did you ever wonder why India was called the “Jewel in the British Crown”?

    And What i did for my country? Let me ask you, what did YOU DO for India or your country? But let me also answer your question, i am educating poor bums like you about India. That is what i am doing for my country, letting people know. Knowledge is Power, that is why your boss is firing you and hiring Indians to do the same work…

    Ever wonder why silicon valley lost 70,000 of its brightest minds? They went to India.

    There are alot more i have NOT named in this. if you want, i can continue…

    Thanks for the great compliation… you might want to update it for 2008. This article mainly deals with important contributions up to 2007.

    In 2008, India broke the Russian record by launching 10 satellites into space with 1 rocket. The Russian record was only 8 and American was 6.

    India also has the most satellites in orbit.

    No one can compare India with any other country. Look at the diversity be it religion, language, food, climate, dressing and what not. No country in the world has so much diversity. We are the larest producers of fruits and various varieties of pulses. The Indian soil is so good that it grows anything and everything even if it is foreign (onion, coffee and wheat etc. came from other countries). No country can feed such a huge population with so little cultivable area and outdated agricultural methods.

    Yes we do have problems such illiteracy, disease etc. but where it is not there. Even in the USA, there are poor and illiterate people. One has to go through the New York City in the night when one will realize the problems that country is facing.

    For a young country, India has done well and I am very proud about it.

    Yea but India has a growing Naxalite problem that the government needs to address. But the government should not use force but solve that problem through negotiations and rural development projects.

    Largest rate of murders per 1000 persons in the world – is utter rubbish. Perhaps, India ranks high in absolute numbers but definitely not in the number of murders per 1000. I have traveled widely in many countries of the east and west. I am very convinced that India is probably among the safest places on earth except for some specific regions within the country.

    Hey Todd just change your name to Tadpole.Up to 1896 India was the only source of diamond in the world.Well done Ebey.Can you tell me what you have done for your country Todd.

    The World\’s first university was established in Takshashila in 700BC
    Sanskrit is the mother of all the European languages. Sanskrit is the most suitable language for computer software.

    India was the richest country on earth until the time of British invasion in the early 17th Century. Christopher Columbus was attracted by India\’s wealth.

    IEEE has proved what has been a century old suspicion in the world scientific community that the pioneer of wireless communication was Prof. Jagdish Bose and not Marconi.

    # The four religions born in India, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism, are followed by 25% of the world\’s population.

    # The place value system, the decimal system was developed in India in 100 BC.
    What else do you want from India .
    I am prod to be an Indian.
