I've always heard counter clockwise

"Counter" doesn't make sense, does it, it's "anti"? No matter!

Not sure I'm a fan of this map's method, I'd have been tempted to blur the noise a bit and get a less prickly heightmap.

It's quite evenly distributed compared to other populous countries though Mumbai, Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh are still super DENSE.

Uttar Pradesh (and Bihar too) is mainly because of the rich Ganga river. Mumbai and Delhi are your standard cases of mega-cities.

Bruhh it's more like central India, North India like Uttrakhand, Himanchal, Jammu and Kashmir and much of Haryana and Punjab are heavily crop cultivating states and are very less populated. We live mighty fine in the north, it's the centre which you are talking about.
