Its culture often labeled as an amalgamation of these diverse sub-cultures is spread all over the Indian subcontinent and traditions that are several millennia old.

The uniqueness of Indian culture lies in its strong social system and family values. The elders are considered the driving force and so are respected and loved. The guests are considered as gods and are treated with respect and love, even if by foregoing some of the personal pleasures. Indians are always ready to help one another in times of need. The philosophy of distributing joy and sharing sorrows is also an important part of Indian culture. Such unity in diversity can be seen here which teaches tolerance and respect for others.

India has always welcomed change, without letting that change effect our glorious past. India is like archives, which has so much within itself that many future generations can learn from it. With every invasion, India became more strong and beautiful. The best feature about India is that, it has been invaded so many times, and yet it stands as one, without falling weak at its roots and that is what makes Indian culture and heritage rich and beautiful.
