India's cultural heritage

  1. 1. Incredible India By - Chavali Raja Sri Harsha India in a time-capsule
  2. 2. India Encapsulated • Though as a fervent patriot, I could wax eloquent for hours about the glorious and varied traditions of my country, to fit all of it within a time-capsule would be impossible. • Let me therefore present those facets of India that are closest to my heart. • Before I get to that, I’d like to bust a few myths about my country..Let’s get started!
  3. 3. Whatiscommonlybelieved..  Indians do not respect Women  Indians are very poor and so is India  India is a land of diseases and unhygienic health practices.  Indian film industry is synonymous with Bollywood and people dancing in colorful clothes. The ground reality..  Indian scriptures accord great respect to women. Ancient Indian history indicates that women had a high standing in society. It is true that women have been at a disadvantage in some aspects in the past few centuries, but the divide is rapidly reducing.  India is the third largest economy in the world, and s home to both the very rich and the very poor.  India has a rich tradition of medicine and healing. This is the country that produced the World’s first surgeon , and introduced Ayurveda to the world. Health practices vary widely between rural and urban areas, and the prevalence of diseases is much higher in poverty- stricken areas.  Indian Film Industry is the largest in the world in terms of movies produced, tickets sold. Besides the Bollywood industry, there are many regional language-specific cine- industries that constitute Indian Cinema. DebunkingMythsAboutIndia

Indians regard various animals, such as cows and snakes, as manifestations of God. Indians revere plants such as Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum) and trees such as Neem and Banyan and worship them as a form of God. Indians treat Fire, Air, water – the basic elements of life, as forms of god. The rivers in India are respected and are believed to be holy. The Kumbmela at Ganga, a holy event where millions throng to take a dip in the Holy Ganga, is the largest religious congregation in the world. Indians follow a spiritual tradition of seeing all things, animate and inanimate, as holy manifestations of God.
