Haryana

Overview
Making its presence felt fast with its spectacular development in last few decades, Haryana is the 16th largest state in India that is gaining popularity with time. The state touches the national Capital, New Delhi on three fronts of its territory, thereby making it very accessible.

The state has seen major turnaround in last few years and today bears a spectacular fertile geography, thus earning the name ‘Green Land of India’. Despite having no major river to its credit, Haryana has emerged as a major contributor to India’s annual agricultural production.
The state enjoys a decent literacy rate of 71.4% and has Hindus in majority of the entire population. The state is also the only exception to India’s states and shares its capital, Chandigarh, with another state, Punjab. Most of the people speak in Haryanvi, English or Punjabi and usually have no problem understanding Hindi either.

Talking about the history, Haryana is stated to be the birthplace of Hinduism if the mythologies are to be believed. The remains of the settlements from Ghaggar Valley in Haryana are believed to be from before 3000 BC. In addition, Bharata Dynasty, the one from where India’s Hindi name ‘Bharat’ originated, ruled on this very state for decades. Haryana also happens to find its mention in the mythological legend, Mahabharata. Kurukshetra in Haryana was the place where Kauravas and Pandavas had their epic battle of truth and justice.

The weather can get pretty extreme while in Haryana sometimes. The proximity to the mountain range in the north causes freezing winters during December-January and extreme summers during May-June rule the state. People here are known for their simplicity and hard-working behavior. Most of the population still resides in the rural regions even though it is one of the top milk and food gain producing states in India.
