This Is What A Google Autocomplete Map Of India Would Look Like. And It’ll Really Open Your Mind.
Reddit user kuttanpilla spent what seems like half an hour for figuring out what Indians keep nagging Google about when they’re curious about their own country. In an image title ‘India According to Google Auto Complete’, he revealed what Google prompted Indians when they typed “Why is __ state” into the search engine.
There’s a lot of geography/history test questions like ‘Why is Gujarat A Dry State?’ and and ‘Why is Rajasthan A Desert?’ (thank god, no racism!) and some genuine curiosity/GK questions like ‘Why is Shillong The Scotland Of The East?’
What is hilarious is that people are actually asking Google – ‘Why is Bengal In East?’ He also pointed out that “Haryana and Tripura returned zero suggestions.”
Interestingly, when another Reddit user tried the same thing, he found different autocomplete responses.
Why is Karnataka – So famous
Why is Delhi – Called mini India
Why is Kerala – Densely populated
Clearly, people in different states have their own ‘Idea of India’ across the country.
