If you look at this map,your first look may lead you to believe that this is some sort of crumpled old map that pirates use to mark hidden treasure spots on.Another look and you would think that this is some child's imaginative portrayal of India as he sees it.
I would have thought that it is the work of a child who wants to become a pirate,had I not known the source of this amazing revelation of a map.It is a part of a site called Dalitstan.org which later branches out into several sections including Tamil and Mughalstan,and of course all of them want to be liberated.
Chitranshu and Yohan while looking for material for a debate bumped into this site.What happened next was that they both spent the entire night browsing through the various facets and parallel truths that this site puts before us.Nevermind the deabte.However serious maybe the intentions of the site owners,unfortunately it does not come out that way to the normal,sane reader.This of course means that site has enough material to keep you amused for many,many days to come.
Once thing that is highly reassuring is the tick mark across Jharkhand.Reassuring because if the site owners,or any of the patrons do come across this page,and more importantly decide to feel offended too,then I have my present home state to fall back upon.
A must visit site.At least they would feel happy that I'm publicising.Who knows,someone may like their ideas and decide to come up with another subtle map like this one.
Gosthan and Gangusthan =))
Next time someone asks me my birth state I'll say it's 'Gangusthan',maybe it will be made less fun of than if I say Bihar.Bored with the same old jokes about Bihar,this might bring out some new ones.
Unbeatable site! And yeah there are many more such maps :D
