Some Fact on India!

It's has a land area of almost 3 million km2.
About 66% of it's land is used for agriculture or some 200 million hectares!
Only 50 million hectares are irrigated - and these help produce the bulk of the 230 million grain production annually!

Rest of the land are deserts, or highlands with forest!

The population in India is almost 1,000 million!
With an agrarian culture, the Indian citizen gains their protein uptake from Fish, protein bearing vegetable beans, milk from cows, chicken, eggs while some moslems eat buffalo meat.
With the insufficient grain production, animal husbandary for protein becomes impossible.

INDIA has to developed external sources of grain to expand PROTEIN PRODUCTION.

Energy - India possess a rich source of coal, and offshore crude oil.
It's estimated that India can mine effectively 1,000 tonnes of coal annually - which can give it a few century sustainable supplies. Most of the coal seams are around the provinces of Bengal!
Off shore crude oil or gas supplies in India should not be more than 200 Million tonnes annually - sustainable probably for approximately 60 odd years!

With hydroelectricity, coal, crude oil, gas - India probably can only afford to provide only 1.5 tonnes of crude oil equivalent per citizen! It would be dependent on massive imports of energy to sustain a bigger economy!

India probably will be dependent on the NEXT WAVE of industrial assembly relocation in order to be able to grow it's economy bigger than present!

cheerios!

The irrigated land in India is 55 million hectares and holds the record for the largest irrigated land in the world
