India, a mystical land of dreams, is a country having the richest and most vivid history and heritage across the world. With the tenth largest economy and seventh largest area in the world, India has retained its identity of rich and diverse culture since many years. There are many things which we, Indians may take normally but are the actual representatives of our country. Something that India is known for…
13. Cultural Diversity
From north to south and east to west, one could come across thousands of different cultures followed in the country. Not only language and religion, everything starting from customs to the architecture, from dance form to jewellery designs, the trend itself started getting different just within a distance of 50 km or so.
12. Obsession for cricket
Although hockey here is the national sport, every open vacant space or street in each locality here is reserved for cricket. The men in blue here are revered as gods. The sport is loved and played by each age category starting from kids to adults. The crazy love for cricket makes Indians different for others.
11. Ayurvedic Treatment
Whatever be the problem, we have Ayurveda with us which can treat perfectly without any side effects. Many people across the world comes to India to have the treatment leaving all the technologies far behind.
10. Grand weddings
Irrespective of the culture, religion and region in our country, financial state of a family for us is normally judged by the money spent on the grand weddings. For us, this is the occasion above all the festivals and joys. The Indian brides are one of the most heavily dresses and decorated brides in the world.
The Hindi Film Industry is now not only confined to India but has also gained popularity internationally since a decade. Its strong success is all because of the love that we offer to the bollywood celebs and their work.
08. Overloaded Trains
India Is country with one of the oldest and most widespread railway systems in the world, but still when it comes to the capacity of trains, it is always too small for people to carry and thus always overloaded. Good point is, the intricately planned railway lines and train schedules is mesmerizing to everyone, including tourists and other people who visit the country.
07. Spicy Spices
Starting from the entrance of British traders in India to the current scenario, spice of India has always been the reason that attracted droves of people into the country. Even in the developed and rich countries like China, United States and Singapore, there is a high demand for Indian spices.
06. The Kashmir valley
Besides all these Indian costumes and cultures, we have a Kashmir valley on one side completing the beauty of our country. No, we are not fighting for a region with Pakistan; we are fighting for a paradise.
05. Colorful Festivals
With open hearts and wide smiles, we celebrate the festivals of all the religions with a lot of enthusiasm. One won’t find a better chance to experience the Indian hospitality than at one of the festivals of the country.
Wherever one would be, he is not alone! The second most populous country would never let you walk alone. This is the reason that India has one of the cheapest and most skilled labor forces. Also, the administration system of our country that is capable of govern so many people together is appreciated by many.
03. Spiritual Hotspot
The gigantic, curved and architecturally mesmerizing temples spread all over the country is one of the reasons for its fame. There are many ashrams of guru that teaches the meaning of life to people and give them inner peace that we humans require the most.
02. Indian cuisine
Every state in India has its own signature recipe and dishes, and is loved by most people across the globe. The spiciness aspect of Indian food is the one that makes it different from all other cuisine.
01. Taj Mahal
The beautiful white monument built in 17th century, located in Agra near New Delhi is like a neck piece of India, giving its beauty an extra point. One of the Seven Wonders of the World has been called “the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage” by UNESCO, which is something to be proud at, for all the Indians.
In this era, where we are almost forgetting what we have and taking a new turn towards western, this was a small reminder for all the Indians who think India is all about large population and traffic jam.
