I have therefore made a new map of Indian states to reflect this change, which is posted here. As with many other GeoCurrents maps, it was constructed in Keynote the Apple version of PowerPoint , and thus can easily be manipulated. Sometime next month, GeoCurrents will make this map, and a number of others, freely available in both Keynote and PowerPoint formats. Users can then easily change the color schemes, the place names, and so on, for all such maps. These maps can also be used for a variety of teaching exercises. In the second map posted here, for example, I have simply left the state names in place while scattering the state shapes; in Keynote, one can reassemble this map by dragging the shapes back to their proper places. After making the political map of India, I decided that I might as well use it to illustrate recent socio-economic indicators for the country, up-dating an earlier GeoCurrents Atlas of Indian Development based on data readily available in Wikipedia.

Also, the whole “Live to work – Work to live” mentality is so noticeably different between the two cultures.
