I bet you didn’t know
“So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked.”
Such a proud feeling when you hear these words by the famous writer Mark Twain. India is truly the mother of birthplace, the mother of history, the grandmother of legends, and the great-grandmother of tradition. With so many innovations, exotic architectures, a burst of cultures, religions and selfless brotherhood, it is what makes India, an Incredible India.
India is not just about cricket and celebrities. There are some unknown, unheard and unbelievable facts about our country which I bet you are not much aware of.
#1. Now you can float and post!
We all know that India has the largest number of post offices in the world but did you know that there
is a floating post office in India too? wow now my mind is floating. This post office is located in the
heaven of earth ‘Srinagar’. It was inaugurated by former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah in August 2011. Since then, it has been attracting tourists from all across the country.
#2. Can you please rub me well?
In Tamil Nadu, all the elephants receive a sumptuous and nutritious diet after a detailed and well-massaged bath in the ponds of Punnathoor Cotta Elephant Yard Rejuvenation Center. I too need a spa therapy after reading this.

#3. Kudos, India!
I can shout from any rooftop and proudly say that India has won all six men’s Kabaddi World Cups (circle style) held till now and have been undefeated throughout these tournaments.
#4. From Richest to Richer to Rich!
Apart from the ‘Golden bird’ we were also a ‘Diamond machine’. I can not believe how affluent we were. Initially, diamonds were only found in the deposits Krishna River. Until these rocks were found in Brazil during the 18th century, India ruled the world in diamond production.
