We all talk about Indian culture but first lets understanding  what is culture and types of cultures in India.

 
CULTURE?
 

The word culture is that complex whole which includes knowledge,belief,art,law,morals, customs and any other capabilities and habits acquired by individual as a member of society.Culture of India refers to dharma,beliefs,customs,tradition,languages, ceremonies ,arts,values and the way of life of India and its people.India’s languages, religions,food,clothing differs from place to place within the country.

BASIC FOUNDATION OF INDIAN CULTURE:
 
  1. RELIGIONS: India is the birthplace of Hinduism,Buddhism,Jainism and Sikhism collectively known as Indian religions.Diversity in Indian religion
  2. GREETINGS:  Namaste is a common spoken greeting or salutation in which one hold hands together with a smile to express deep respect .
  3. CUISINE: Indian food is as diverse as India.From salads to sauces,from spices to sensuous,from breads to desserts,Indian cuisine is invariably complex.Different cuisines of india
  4. CLOTHING:Traditional clothing in India greatly varies across different parts of the country and is influenced by local culture,geography,climate and rural/urban setting.

THE CULTURE WHAT WE SEE IN PRESENT SCENARIO:

 Dalai Lama once said ”Open your arms free,get ready to change with the world but donot met go your values“.Most of us believe that today our culture is decaying but who set the culture,we the human beings right?
  •  Today crime against women have increased exponentially.Newspaper daily consist of at least 2 to 3 news related to crime against women which was never our culture.
  • After 65 years of independence people are still judge by their color tone and caste. This is what our culture never teach us.
  • Initially there use to be joint families and people use to live together peacefully.Today there has been a trend of nuclear families where parents often end up living in old age homes .Our culture never allowed this callousness.
  • In recent Delhi gang rape case the victim and her friend were lying naked and helpless on roads in that chilled night but still there was no one to help them and take them to hospital.Since when our society became that level of inhuman.
  • Today Delhi and Mumbai are considered world’s most polluted cities and our culture never taught us to disintegrate our land, water and air .

Modernity does not depend on wearing jeans but it is in your thoughts and acceptance of

new technologies.So,Our culture is not decaying but the mentality of our citizens is deteriorating
 day by day.At last i want to conclude by saying that
“INSTEAD OF CONTINUOUSLY INCREASING OUR SOCIAL QUOTIENT WE SHOULD
FOCUS ON INCREASING OUR EMOTIONAL QUOTIENT
