The capital of India is Delhi.

India is the seventh largest country in the world. Wow! The name ‘India’ comes from the historic local name for the Indus River. Let’s take a look at some facts about India!

There is evidence of human activity in India as long as 75,000 years ago. If you include hominids (which are humans and their fossil ancestors) and including  Erectus, which are an extinct form of human, then evidence of life can be from around 500,000 years ago.

By 2500 BC, the Indus Valley civilization had developed round the Indus River   (now in Pakistan) trading in crops grown on the fertile river plains. It was a powerful region and larger than any other ancient empires, including Egypt.

The population on Earth in 2013 was 7.125 billion of which 1.27 billion people live in India. United States has about 316.1 million and that makes India a highly populated country. Its official languages are Hindi and English though fourteen other languages are recognised as official in certain regions. The capital of India is New Delhi and their money is called the Rupee.
