India (भारत गणराज्य) is a country in South Asia. In size, it is the seventh-largest country of the world and it is the second-most populated, with over 1.2 billion people. It is the most populous democracy in the world.
Four of the world's major religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism, originated here, whereas Zoroastrianism, Christianity and Islam arrived in the 1st millennium. India has been able to include all its different features in a multiform but integrated civilization. However, communal, caste and regional tensions continue to be the challenges of Indian politics, sometimes threatening its long-standing democratic and secular ethos.
In terms of nominal GDP, the Indian economy is the world's ninth-largest. And it is the fourth largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). The country has a burgeoning urban middle class and has made great strides in fields such as information technology. Its large, skilled workforce makes it a popular choice for international companies seeking to outsource work. However, it continues to face the challenges of poverty, illiteracy, corruption and inadequate public health. The vast mass of the rural population still remains impoverished.
