India Launches Sweeping Economic Reforms: Foreign Media On GST

NEW DELHI: The term “united states” has always been most apt for describing India, a nation of unparalleled variety of peoples and climes, 23 official languages and thousands of dialects. Some villages have been home to particular lineages for so long that residents claim their own dialect is discernible from what’s spoken in a town two miles down the road.
