I was always amazed with rich culture of India; Its vastness and deepness. Before getting drowned into the vastness of Indian Culture, lets briefly divide the things we would want to analyse about the Indian Culture and the strong pillars that are holding them.

1. Arts and Science

Arts-

Aboriginal Dance (more than 20 completely different forms of Dance techniques) Eg: Bharaha Natyam, Kuchipudi, Mohini Attam, Kathakali, etc

Traditional Music : Carnatic Music, Hindustani Music, etc

Architecture (Business,Home,Temples),Paintings, Sculptures : Vastu Sashtra (Science of Constructing Homes), Agamas (Science on constructing Temples), etc.

Martial Arts –  Self Defence, Theories on safeguarding the country or Kingdom, Research works.   Some of the notable ones are Yogas, Silambattam, etc

Economics – Research on Economics, Various Economic theories or Books written. Some of the notable ones are : Artha Sastra,

Science- Astrology, Astronomy, Metallurgy, Mathematics, Chemistry, Nuclear Physics, etc were so much researched and have so many great contributions from the time immemorial.

2. Faith

Various Doctrines of Faith, Research on Human evolution, Options for Humans to evolve in a faith. Varieties of ways to attain salvation; Some of the notable ones are Saivisim, Vaishavism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Parsis,etc

This is so astonishing for me, as in the rest of the world there was always one faith followed in one country, but in India, there were so many faiths, thanks to so many great souls who wandered this country thereby creating so many different faiths.

Each of these faiths has so many great souls belonging to them that did so many miracles and guided people towards their ultimate goal – Moksha/Nirvana/Enlightment.

Once we understand the above topics, we could cover the most basic heartbeats of What INdia is all about.

I am planning to write on all these topics one by one and walk you through the rich culture of India.

Expect my next post on Various Dance forms of India some time before 22nd March 2008.
