BANGALORE: India is a land of many things from the number of cultures, traditions, and gods and also one of the biggest economies in the world. It is a fascinating country when you look at the ecology and geography, which has everything from a desert to snowy mountains and Great Plains. But what is really interesting is that the country has an equal mix of good and bad when the statistics of the country are taken into consideration. So here are some facts that will blow your mind about the biggest democracy in the world with inputs from Business Insider.



The longest road networks: India has one of the longest road networks in the world. It is said that the road network is so long that it can run around the globe 117 times. This is pretty crazy because India has 4.7 million kilometers in length while the world’s circumference is only 40,000 kilometers.



The Great divide: Talk about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer, India is the land where this formula seems to flourish. India is one of the biggest economies in the world but what people don’t see is that the urban population is still less compared to that of the rural population. In this regard, India’s consumer spending is expected to triple taking the total expenditure to $ 3.9 trillion by 2020. This means the economy will grow but the gap between the rich and the poor is no closer to being bridged.
