The Economist has an interactive graph comparing the GDP, GDP per person and population of every state in India with the statistically closest nation. The interesting thing to me is that they’ve done away with Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and China Occupied Kashmir (Aksai Chin) in the map of India. International news agencies have been going with this map lately. High time, I say. In fact, I wonder how long before we stop calling them PoK and CoK and admit they’re part of Pakistan and China now.

A quick search of maps at websites of Indian news channels shows that they’re sticking with the map of India that hasn’t quite been India for over six decades now.
