Ancient India has witnessed several civilizations – The Vedic period with the Ramayan and Mahabharata written during this age; the Buddhist Era, Alexander's invasion, and the Gupta Dynasty. The country's rich history also witnessed powerful empires like Palas and the Cholas, with foreign invaders ruling the land from the 8th century to the early 20th century.

People

It still runs deep in familial traditions, even though the traditional system has now been broken with more people adopting the nuclear family system. Customs and values are important here – the universal Namaste to greet people with folded hands, respecting elders, hospitality or Athithi Devo Bhava, fasting as a symbol of expressing gratitude and cleansing of sins, worshipping cow, the prevalence of arranged marriages, the elaborate use of Swastika, and more. 
Culture
With a rich heritage ingrained in beliefs, traditions, and social norms, India has been impacted by a mix of several cultures. India is a secular country, even though Hinduism is the most practiced religion here. The key aspect of the Indian culture is the amalgamation of different cultures with the predominance of Vedic and Dharmic thought processes. It is also the place where religions like Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism have originated. 
Food
