In an interesting development, google search in the United States about India has spiked sharply after President Donald Trump's maiden visit to the country. Reports suggest that people from inside the United States are searching 'where is India' and 'what is India' from the last few days and especially from the region of Indiana and New Jersey.

However, this is not the first time when Americans displayed their lack of geographical knowledge. Last month, people in the United States were searching 'where is Iran' when it looked like World War III was on the verge of breaking out. US citizens' search was triggered by media reports that the United States of America could possibly go on a war against Iran after Tehran attacked Washington's military base in Iraq following the assassination of its top Army commander Qassem Soleimani.
