I love maps since they really do say a 1000 words and more. I personally think the idea of a 50-state India, with 20mn people apiece is a brilliant brilliant step forward. For instance Kerala can be split into a Muzzer-majority Malabar, which would make geographic sense and take the wind out of so much ethno-religious rivarly.
What I absolutely love in this map is that it automatically brings to the fore a few macro regions:
Europe, Middle East & North Africa are contiguous, which is essentially where the Classical World (all the action) took place.
The Aryans dropped off in Central Asia and India forms a huge distinct territory in the heart of Asia (frankly Asia, North Africa and Europe seem to form one huge macro-continent).
Finally of course the “East” is Sino China that is bordered by the Indo-China region.
As for the New World (which is the rest of the world apart from Nigeria) is essentially shaped/settled by Europeans.
Finally to weave in the final part of the maps posted by my father; it’s interesting to see that the axis of the global economy is just south of Spain but by 2050, at current rates, will be north of Bangladesh.
