Indian Culture and tradition

 India has been home to an array of civilizations, languages, traditions and religions. Hence, it is quite a task to define the 'Indian culture', for the Indian culture has evolved over time to develop into a culmination of several traditions, ideas, languages, festivals and beliefs.
 Right from the primitive civilizations like the Indus valley civilization, to the Aryans, the Huns, the Turks, The Persians, the Afghans and the British have invaded India and flourished here making her a land of diversity - regional, religious and linguistic. This diversity has continually contributed to the Indian one of the richest and most diverse and multifarious cultures of the world. Moreover, the fact that India is the origin of four major religions of the world and that she is , even today, home to a large population of Muslims, Christians, and Jews is testimony to the conclusion that the Indian culture is a culture that has constantly undergone revolution and has always welcomed change.
 However, there also prevail certain evils claiming to be part of the Indian culture, thus, threatening to tarnish it's image. It needs to be understood that no culture ever promotes sinister tradition. Any such practice is a misinterpretation by man, that has to be put away. The Indian culture shows not a trace of conservativeness. On the contrary, history is witness to the statement, that it is quite liberal. Upholding true honor and beauty of our culture, it is the responsibility of us Indians to defeat all the obstacles that stand in the path of its development and fame.


Hope blesses the eager drops of the river
With the boon that they'll meet the sea
And motivates the caged bird to live
So that one day he'll be free.

Hope gets the empty, naked Tree
To stand the cold winds of winter
Hope gets the Sun to set at night
So He could rise again even brighter.

Hope steers the soul of the impoverished man
From childhood through youth to the waning age
Hope inspires the most troubled of poets
To start anew on a brand new page.

With Hope the salmon fights the river
To see her young ones grow
While teaching us all along
To never let Hope run low.

My heart beats for Mumbai

With special cuisine of vada pav available on almost every street of Mumbai, it is a big package of culture and legend that never fails to captivate the imagination of the visitor.
     Called the city of dreams, Mumbai rates in one of the highest populated city and migrations in the country. Mumbai is a land of fascination! Millions of tourists from all around the world find contentment in on the dazzling long Queen's necklace at Marine Drive, Juhu Beach and Hanging Gardens. Blessed with one of the most believed Lords -Ganpati at Siddhivinayak, this place will also give you a sense of peace and religious fervor.
