Remembering names of Indian states

If someone asked us, how many states is India divided into ? Probably most of us won't be able to answer that. Even worse, what if we are asked to enumerate them.

Here is a simple way to remember all the states:

Btw, India is divided into 28 states and six union territories (Andaman-Nicobar, Daman-Diu, Chandigarh, Delhi, Dadara-Nagar Haveli, Lakshadeep and Pondicherry)

I have 3 mnemonics (Also see mnemonic for Periodic table)




(Ignore vowels)
1. JK par game kar ke Tao West Bengal gaye
(Jammu Kashmir, Punjab Rajasthan, Gujarat Maharashtra, Karnataka Kerala, Tamil Nadu Andra Pradesh Orissa, West Bengal)

Goa is below Maharashtra :)

2. HP hara MAC jhab UP UK gaye
(Himachal Pradesh, Harayana, Madhya Pradesh Chattisgarh, Jharkhand Bihar,Uttar Pradesh, UttarKhand)

Sikkim separates 1,2 from 3

3. Arun & Megha Assam trip mi nagmani ko dekha
(Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Tripura, Mizoram, Nagaland Manipur)
