India is the world's largest democracy, with more than 1 billion people.
But in my timeline, there is no real 'India', or no real secular democratic India at least.
Instead, our Indian subcontinent is made up of many states.
These were: Akhand Bharat, an authoritarian dictatorship established by right-wing Hindu nationalists. It composes of much of the Ganga valley of northern India.
Punjab, a socialist state established by Bhagat Singh after he rebelled against the British in 1921 and escaped to the USSR.
Jammu and Kashmir, a monarchy in the extreme north. It has ambitions to become the Switzerland of Asia
Pakistan, an Islamic Emirate, formed by poet Mohammed 'Allama' Iqbal, and politician Mohammed Ali Jinnah
Throughout the years these nations would evolve and change.
For now,that's all they are!
