Glimpse of India- Diversity Enriching Lives

India is a land of spices and the most exotic spice is Diversity. Spices add flavour to the food we eat. In the similar manner, diversity is the essence of vibrant life. The culture of India has been influenced by all those rulers who administered the country for years, strong-belief-religions and strikingly contrast regions. We don’t have to bear the same weather throughout the year; there are four extreme seasons showcasing their mighty power every year. People in India speak different languages, National Language Hindi being the common connection. There are rivers, valleys, mountains, seas, plateaus. You can’t go to Switzerland? Visit Himachal Pradesh or Uttarakhand and experience fresh snow. Gulmarg is known as Switzerland of India. Visit pristine Andaman and Nicobar islands for Thailand feel. Thar Desert will fire you up with Sahara like heat. Visit Kerala to create magic moments of Italy!

Why India is so diverse

1) Diverse Geography of India

We have snow-capped mountains, Sea-shores, deserts, plains, hills and plateaus. Fertile Indo-Gangetic Plains cover most of the North India and Deccan plateau give distinct characteristics to South India.

2) Religious Cultures

The culture of India is controlled by the religions people follow. Though most of the people follow Hinduism, there’s a significant number of Islam, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism followers.

3) History

Indian culture is a blend of various cultures. It is the glorious history of the subcontinent responsible for the amalgamation. India prospered during the rule of the Mughals. Architecture and other art forms were promoted and food technology from Eastern countries entered the kitchen of Indian people. When the British ruled India, they influenced the clothing and food habits with a noticeable reflection on language.

The soil of India received cultures from around the world with open arms. Indian philosophy of ‘Atithi Devo Bhava‘ could be one of the reasons behind India’s liberal acceptance.

People from foreign lands came to India and left their impression on the soil of the country. The original culture got modified time and again. A culture that was already diverse met new dimensions to expand. Today, India celebrates festivals of many religions. Food options are plenty because we never let any intruder go back without knowing his secret culinary skills๐Ÿ˜‰

    Diversity is one of the most striking features of India and I loved how you connected geographical features, religion and the entry of many foreigners on our land as an important reason behind it.
