India is a beautiful country in the southern part of Asia that is home to over 1.2 billion people, making it the second most populous country in the world. India is a predominately Hindu nation, with almost 80% of its people identifying with this religion. The Indian culture is very much centered around community, and for generations, most Indian families operated in the joint family system, where parents, children, and their offspring all lived together under one roof. Because it is a multi-cultural nation, the Indian people enjoy celebrating many different holidays and festivals throughout the year, with Republic Day, Independence Day, Gandhi’s Birthday, and Diwali being some of the most popular.
The country of India has over 20 million orphans, making it the country with the largest population of orphans in the world today.
