Note that these numbers are inferred based on the projected population of 2026. Read more about the methodology in the article before jumping to conclusions.
With these new projections, just three states: UP, Bihar, and West Bengal will account for 33% of all Lok Sabha Seats.

10 of the many artefacts the British took from other countries [thread]
1. The Kohinoor Diamond

Brings bad luck upon any man who wears it, it has only been worn by female members of the British royal family. Mined from the Kollur Mine, the diamond is claimed by over four countries, including the Taliban.
2. After the last king of Mysore died fighting the British, they took away the ring and sword of Tipu Sultan.

Though the sword eventually returned to India in 2004 after Vijay Mallya bought it at an auction for Rs 1.57 crore, his ring still remains in the UK.

23.6% of Punjab's GDP comes from agriculture - far less than Madhya Pradesh, Nagaland, Andhra, Arunachal, Tripura, Mizoram, and Rajasthan.

However, comparing what % of agricultural revenue of a state comes from rice and wheat, no state comes even close to Punjab at 50.6%
Between 1972 and 1986, Punjab’s agriculture grew by 5.7% every year as compared to a mere 2.3% for the entire country. In the next two decades, at 3% per annum, the state’s farm-sector growth was just a bit higher than the entire country’s 2.9%.
In the decade after that, Punjab has done so badly, its growth was less than half that of the rest of the country. While states like Madhya Pradesh grew by 9.7% between FY06 and FY15 and Jharkhand by 8.6%, Punjab grew by a mere 1.6%—the all-India number was 3.5%.

Wish you all a very happy Navratri!
Day 1: Shailaputri / Parvati (Daughter of the Mountain): She is the consort of Shiva who was born as Sati in her previous life where she immolated herself when Shiva was humiliated by her father Daksh Prajapati. So, Parvati symbolizes love and dedication.
Day 2: Brahmacharnini (The Tapasvi): She is depicted as a monastic goddess in Hindu scriptures. Her meditative form represents the severe Tapasya undertaken by Sati and then Parvati.

The war of 1971 that was a culmination of two wars - the Bangladesh Liberation War and the Indo-Pak war is an important case study for geopolitics.
Despite producing 59% of the country’s exports, East Pakistan got just 30% of imports and only 25% of industrial investments. When the Bhola Cyclone killed 300,000 people in East Pakistan, West Pakistan just shrugged it off.
In 1970, West Pakistan announced the country would hold an election for the first time since independence. While West Pakistan’s votes were split between different parties, an overwhelming majority of votes in East Pakistan went to the Awami League.
