India is a cultural state and believe me! I made my trip to reveal the cultural heritage of India .
Before coming to India, through friends and media , I knew that India is a cultural state that holds religious values. But I only came to know about its culture magnificence, when I landed on the abode.
I still have some beautiful moments in my memorabilia that are truly a treasure. Beholding a splendorous past, the very land has a history that dates back to 5000 years. In fact through out my stay in India, I had many experiences of its rich culture, glorious past, the turbulences and triumphs. As I traveled through the nation, I got acquainted about the landmarks of each era, the achievements of each age, the legacy of each regime. By the end of the journey, I had my own interpretation about the land. So had Arthur, a business man from US, who explored Himachal Pradesh and written some good words about the culture of Himachal Pradesh.
Dance with the Music!!
Significantly, dance and music holds an important place in Indian household. Music forms an integral part of Indian people and Indians cannot celebrate any fest without it. I noticed a vast profusion of folk music that varies according to locality. Though folk songs also follow the same base, classical music requires immense training & practice.
In fact , India is also rich in art and craft that has existed from many years. Painting as an art form has flourished in India from very early periods as is evident from literary sources and also from the remnants that have been discovered. Through sources, I got acquainted that Indian paintings can be broadly classified as the murals & miniatures. Murals are huge works executed on the walls of solid structures.
Oh! yes the food available in India was as exotic as its culture, its geography and its climate. Since I was living with my Indian friend, Mukesh. His wife told me that the essence of good Indian cooking revolves around the appropriate use of aromatic spices. The skill lies in the subtle blending of a variety of spices to enhance rather than overwhelm the basic flavor of a particular dish. These spices are also used as appetizers and digestive.
Celebrating the fiesta!!!!!
The fairs and festivals of India adds glory to the state. They increase the fun and excitement for the tourists. I especially enjoyed Diwali- a festival of lights, crackers and gaiety. Wilson, another visitor who explored the Kashmir beauty, has narrated his experience with the Kashmiri people in Incredible Kashmir.
