Trivia Crack Answer: India
About the subcontinent and peninsula of India
India is the only subcontinent and peninsula in the world. The Indian subcontinent includes Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The subcontinent is home to over 25% of the world’s total population despite being only 3.3% of the land area in the world. India alone is home to 1.2 billion people and is less populated than only China. This population is 17.5% of the world. People name this area differently, including South Asia, Indian subcontinent and Asian subcontinent. India is a peninsula – a piece of land surrounded by water on three sides. India has one of the fastest growing economies in the world, but many of the other countries that share the Indian subcontinent are growing much more slowly. For a long time, Pakistan and Bangladesh were actually one country. Bangladesh achieved independence in 1971, after a war that included genocide, mass rape and other atrocities. India has a strong relationship with Russia, which started during the reign of the Soviet Union. The peninsula of India contains three hotspots of biodiversity. Climate change is currently posing a threat to many of India’s local species, along with volcanic activity. There are now over 500 sanctuaries for wildlife in India.
