Best Art and Culture Notes
India’s cultural heritage is not only one of the most ancient but it is also one of the most extensive and varied. From ancient times to the present many races and religions came here and left their imprints on the culture. These people either came into contact with India temporarily or permanently settled within her borders to evolve a distinctive Indian culture. This resulted in a synthesis of many cultures.
As the result, India, due to its rich and precious cultural and natural heritages, came to be known as the land of great wonders and diversities. The Culture of India refers to the way of life of the people of India. India’s languages, religions, dance, music, architecture, food, and customs differ from place to place within the country.
The Indian culture is often labelled as an amalgamation of several segments of cultures, including traditions that are several millennia old. It spans the entire Indian subcontinent. Many elements of India’s diverse cultural segments have had a profound impact across the world. In its collective form, these cultural traits are identified as Indian cultural heritage. It is interesting to note that in the 10th century the Arabs described Indian culture as Ajaib-ul-Hind. The literal meaning of Ajaib-ul-Hind is “Incredible India” -NIOS Art & Culture
