    India was called the Jewel in the Crown of the British Empire because it was the core of British power projection; the entire British strategy was based on the supply lines to the Indian subcontinent. It was during this period that Vladimir Lenin famously said that India was the supply depot of humanity. He may have been exaggerating, but it does show India’s importance. The Indian subcontinent, which includes India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, is one of the most ancient places on earth. In fact, the Indus Valley, located in Pakistan, is one of the birthplaces of civilization. The Ganges river system in Northern India is an extremely strategic river system, comparable to the Mississippi river in the US. The Ganges Delta, located in Bangladesh, is one of the most fertile lands in the world.

    The subcontinent is home to more than two thousand ethnic groups, unified by their religions and common values and manifested in three independent states. The largest of these countries is India. With fast- growing industries, India’s economy ranks among the top in the world. Its population, numbering around 1.2 billion, is still growing. In this analysis, we will take a peek at the domestic and foreign policy of India.
