Welcome to Around the World, Here at Home. I’m Jennifer Davidson. Today, we highlight the country with the second largest population in the world: over one billion people. It has 14 official languages, but hundreds of others thrive, too. It borders the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, and rises to the majestic Himalaya Mountains in the north. Hinduism is the way of life for most, but Muslims, Christians and Sikhs, too, have a huge presence here: India.
I spoke with Protima and Rabindra Roy, both longtime professors at Drury University in Springfield.
