INDIA is a vast republic in South Asia that is dominated in the extreme north by the world’s youngest and highest mountains, the Himalayas. The diverse Republic of India encompasses a huge variety of geographical features and human societies. It is the second-most densely populated country in the world and is home to one in six of the world’s population, many of whom live in conditions of extreme poverty.
The country has three main geographical divisions: the high peaks of the Himalayas which dominate the northern border; the densely populated, fertile northern plains which are drained by the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers; and the ancient Deccan Plateau region to the south which extends to the southern tip of the country.
