Hi,

A simpler technical solution will be to show the map that is correct
in the India context for all the IP addresses originating from India
and for all other IPs, the current one ( I think that is the one
recognised by UN)

This should give a right solution to all the users.
Additionally, on all the pages where India map is presented, entries
for both the maps should be given mentioning the context and the
disputes.
