Inspired by this economist map, here is an attempt at finding countries (UNDP 2009) that are similar in population to various Indian states (Census 2011).  Hover your mouse over your favorite Indian state on the map to get its equivalent country.  A couple of highlights:-

Looking at some of World's troubled countries and their Indian counter parts - Egypt (Andhra Pradesh), Tunisia (Uttarakhand) and Iraq (Assam).  These Indian provinces  are currently undergoing similar turmoil (except for Uttarakhand) with Telangana movement in AP & insurgency in Assam.  Uttarakhand in the past went through a similar phase before attaining statehood.  And yet, we are still one country.  It is a miracle!

Indian States & Comparable Countries

Note: The Indian population data is from Census 2011.  The World Population data is from 2009 via UNDP.  If any of you want the underlying fusiontable data, let me know (ms AT manja) and I can share.
