Google provides a means by which by just mentioning the country code,  we
get handle to that country and then encode other information(say, literacy
rate, etc etc)
along with it and show as a map with relevant viz.

I am ref to something similar, by which one can get handle to states in
India,
and then encode similarly as/in a viz map.

Your other option is definitely possible, but i sincerely do not have the
time to do it.
I had opined that the OSM guys would have something on this front, but a
quick dig in
their arena did not give me anything useful.

Actually, i would highly suggest if someone in the group does this and
releases it in OSS,
would be of immense help to many. There is so much data related to India,
and any
standard viz api for this would be great.
