India

After China, India is the most populated country in the world with over 1 billion people, and a complex system of religious beliefs and beautiful cultural traditions. The country suffers from overpopulation, corruption, and pollution, and a large number of its citizens live below the poverty line. However, certain sectors of the economy are developing quickly, though the majority of the population will not benefit from these advancements. The handicraft sector is a major source of income for rural communities, and employs over 6 million people including a large number of women.
