Students from Uttar Pradesh

Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state of India lies in north-central India bordered by the state of Uttarakhand and the country of Nepal to the north, the state of Bihar to the east, the states of Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh to the southeast, the state of Madhya Pradesh to the south, and the states of Rajasthan and Haryana and the national capital territory of Delhi to the west. The name Uttar Pradesh was given to it on Jan. 26, 1950, the day India became a republic. The capital city is Lucknow. On 9 November 2000, a new state, Uttarakhand, was carved from the mountainous Himalayan region of Uttar Pradesh which lies as its border on the north. Uttar Pradesh (UP) is often described as the "heartland" of India.

The state is the fifth largest Indian state by area. Agriculture and service industries are the largest contributors in the state's economy. The service sector comprises of travel and tourism industry, hotel industry, real estate, insurance and financial consultancies. Kanpur is the economic and industrial capital of Uttar Pradesh while the state high court is in Allahabad.

The vast majority of Uttar Pradesh lies within the Gangetic Plain, which is composed of alluvial deposits brought down from the Himalayas by the river Ganges. The lands are fertile alluvial soils.

Uttar Pradesh experiences a tropical monsoon type, with warm weather throughout the year. Floods are a recurring problem and can cause fatalities and heavy damage to crops and property, particularly in the eastern part of the state. Periodic failure of monsoons results in drought conditions.

Uttar Pradesh is the most populous state in India. In the early 21st century it had an overall population density of more than twice the national average. The vast majority of the people, including members of all levels of the caste hierarchy, are Hindus. Muslims are the largest religious minority. There also are relatively small groups of Sikhs, Christians, Jains, and Buddhists. Hindi is an official language of the state and the mother tongue of most of the people. Urdu, additionally an official language, is primarily spoken by Muslims.

Tourism in the state has a large impact on the economy. Many visitors flock to Hindu centres such as Varanasi, Allahabad, Ayodhya, and the Mathura-Vrindavan, Buddhist centres such as Sarnath, Kasia (site of Kushinagara, where the Buddha died), Shravasti; and other historic places such as Agra, Lucknow, and Kannauj for the most beautiful temples and palaces built.

The state has a rich history of education and learning. It was from the beginning of the Vedic period in India that Uttar Pradesh was the chosen destination for education. During the Gupta rule languages like Sanskrit, Persian and Arabic were first taught here in this place. It had already gained name as an educational hub. But, It was after the settlement of the British due to the incapability of the state to come in terms with the standards of western education, the quality of education gradually declined. The British can be credited for establishing a number of colleges and universities in Uttar Pradesh to promote education following the western pattern. This practice was carried forward by the state government authorities post-independence also. From then there is no looking back. According to the census reports published in the year 2011, the literacy rate in the state is 69.72% compared to the literacy rate of 56.27% recorded in the year 2001.

Definitely it took a long time for the Uttar Pradesh state government to improve the conditions of education within the state but the results were fruitful. The state is home to some of the most prestigious educational institutes in the country. Therefore a number of educational institutes in UP attract students from other Indian states as well as other countries of the world.

Hindi is the medium of instruction at the primary-school level (English is used at some private schools), Hindi and English are required courses for high school students, and English is generally the medium of instruction at the university level.

Despite all the improvements in the field of education, the lacuna still exists in some parts. Starting with the biggest hurdle which the state faces is the large population.
