#Punjab, the land of the five rivers, turned into #India’s breadbasket

The state of Punjab, in the northwest of India at the foothills of the Himalaya, is the land of Maharajas and the region of origin of the Sikh religion, with a rich cultural history. With 28 million people and a land area of about 50,000 km2, Punjab is one of the more densely populated parts of the world, but it is also the country’s breadbasket, something that makes it one of the richer states in India (it produces nearly 2% of the world’s wheat).
