New States Line Up For Separation. Cue The Hunger Strikes.

A hunger strike by Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao became a rallying point for protesters agitating for a Telangana State. Talk of opening a can of worms, here are some other inspired potential separatist state movements cuing up:

  • A Gorkhaland state in Darjeeling Hills wanting to break from West Bengal
  • A Maru state wanting to break from Rajasthan
  • Vidarbha wants out of Maharastra
  • Uttar Pradesh may split into three separate states
  • Jammu prefers itself without Kashmir
  • Coorg wants to split from Karnataka

Cartography seems like a good career choice at the moment. Never mind what it will cost to create  new maps and signs for new states – not just for India but all around the world!
