As we were preparing to set off on our India trip last month (earlier posts here and here) , sitting in a local airport, I happened to be reading a story in The Economist which referred to India as “the world’s most religious country.” I let those words flow through my brain and settle somewhere in a back recess, not sure of what to make of them. Is that true? How can we know if a particular country is the world’s “most religious”? And how does India compare to China in this regard?
