The culture of India is the way of living of the India’s languages, religions, dance, music, architecture, food, and customs differ from place to place within the country. The Indian culture, often labeled as an amalgamation of several cultures, spans across the Indian subcontinent and has been influenced by a history that is several millennia old. Many elements of India’s diverse cultures, such as Indian religions, yoga and Indian cuisine, have had a profound impact across the world.
The best part about India Fest 2015 ,was how authentic it was; I really felt like I had stepped into another country, fully exposed to a new culture and what an unfamiliar people group was interested in. The bustle of the crowds, the bright colors and the aroma of the food made it feel as though I were on an actual adventure to India, which gave me a good an excited feeling.
The event was well-organized, and attended by many people. It was an outlet for local businesses to promote their services, and for cultures to collide in a very chaotic-yet-exciting way. I highly recommend attending.
