Nice quiz. Just managed to get them all. Maybe you can add another half a minute or even a full minute because the spelling of many states is really not straightforward for non Indian natives. Also for all the pradeshes you just need the first word, except Uttar Pradesh where you require Uttar P, which is a bit weird.

I think the reason you need "Uttar P" is because there's another state "Uttarakhand", which has the first few letters in common.

I typed "up" and "mp" and they work for their respective Pradesh states time is tight though. One day when I do eventually get to see the world's largest democracy I will not be totally ignorant. At least I love cricket which is a good start in a country like India.

Only missed Chandigarh.

Please accept Maharastra for Maharashtra. There are questions about transliteration anyway for ष - even Wikipedia transliterates as "sa" - so even though Maharashtra is the formal English spelling, lots of folks (raises hand here!) may hear it said or read it in devanagari but don't immediately think of it as "sh." The sound is in between.

is it possible to mark some of the smaller regions differently, most of them are nearly impossible to spot and lakshadweep is not shown at all (maybe needs a shaded region in sea)
