  • "It's wrong to usurp a date another colleague has already announced," Hrithik Roshan on clash with Shah Rukh Khan

  • UP, Bihar have India’s youngest populations; Kerala, Tamil Nadu are the oldest

    Uttar Pradesh and Bihar’s populations have the lowest median ages – or youngest populations – in India while Kerala and Tamil Nadu have the highest median ages, according to Census 2011 data, compiled by Bengaluru-based think tank Takshashila Institution. The median age is the age which divides the population into two equal halves, i.e. there are as many people older than the median age as there are people younger than it. A low median age would suggest that a country’s population has more young people than older people. The median age in India rose from 22.51 years in 2001 to 24 years in 2011, according to Census data. The median age of India’s population will be 37 years in 2050–lower than
