Are we conserving our cultural heritage ? The Hindu Analysis

Unity in Diversity has been the fundamentals of Indian culture . For a long time we have been respecting the various belief systems. India is a  “civilization-state” rather than a “nation-state. Some people , who believed that the Idea of Indian culture relates to the Hindu culture . In fact they forget the value system of Hinduism. Indian culture has been the hybrid of the various belief systems , religion , race etc . The modern Indian culture is the hybrid of the the influence of Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, and Sikhism. There are many Islamic elements which have been merged in Indian culture . Today, the Hindu wear Sherwani on every auspicious occasion. This attire arrived in India after the arrival of the Muslims . There are many Arabic , Persian and the Urdu terms merged in several sacred texts of the Hindus . Tulsidas also used many Arabic and the Persian terms in his Ram Charit Manas. We like Cricket which was brought after the arrival of the British . Nowadays this is the most popular game in India . Some years , all the Hindus voted for the Taj mahal as the world’s most surprising monument . We did not vote for Ankorvatt . Therefore , it can be concluded that , communal harmony is the essence of the protection of the Indian culture
