Take a Geography Lesson This Independence Day

echnological advancements have made going places way too easy! When heading somewhere, we rely on the GPS and are lead to our destination; no hassle whatsoever.

Although, earlier when nobody had Google Maps or any smart device to guide them through their journey, travellers were supposed to have a sound knowledge of maps and reading a map was an essential skill every intrepid explorer needed to possess.

Back at GuestHouser’s headquarters, we decided to test how well Indian citizens knew their own country and how technologically independent they were? The results we got are hilarious, let’s take a look:

1. Before giving up, his last words were, “It’s all India”

With no Karnataka in the picture, wonder where the IT people are headed?

It’s funny, how we complain about our neighbors trespassing, but never realize that the authority to question comes only with wisdom. How many of us actually know our country?

This Independence Day, gather your family and friends and try naming all the states that comprise our country. This isn’t a social experiment but an honest effort to remember that it took hundreds of years for freedom fighters to help claim our land; and we should take a moment to acknowledge their sacrifices. All you need to do is #knowyourcountry better.

Happy sixty ninth Independence Day folks!
