If we allow for the usua growth in population there,, w may estimate that the number i now above 350,000,000. These fig ures do not include Burma, which has been separated from India. Twenty-three languages ot im portance are spoken in India Each o£ these is the "mother tongue of more than 100,000 persons. v "Hindi" is the main language being spoken by about 110 000 00( persons. "Bengali" comes next ". half as many speaking it W-» ^ Si) .. ifc^ "Gandhi Day" in Delhi. Note the Die spinning wheel. Besides the twenty-three leading languages, India has about 175 .special dialects. These are spoken by certain groups in different parts of the country. . Calcutta, with a population of a .miLucm and a half, is the largest --?/. tj n - ^ a - -^ ranks second in the British.empire, only London .having more inhabitants.

There have been strikes, riots and other troubles The chief leader of those who have asked freedom, or at least home rule, for India has been Mahatma Gandhi. Happily he has oeen a man of peace, and has asked his followers not to use deadly weapons to win their ends More than anyone else in India he is beloved by the plain people is is the year of his seventieth birthday. Men in charge of the British jovernment did not feel sure that India was ready to carry on a government of her own. It w a s feared that clashes might fake lace between people of many anguages, races and religions. In 193o however, the British parliament passed laws granting a constitution to India. The constitution was put into actual effect two vears ago.
