India is a pictorial kaleidoscope of diverse cultures, punctuated by constant integration of migrating people time and again. Our cultural heritage is ancient and chequered. Strategically built majestic palaces, intricately carved architecture, colonial edifices, commodious bazaars, hymns and chants from the temples in the serene bank of rivers, the fascinating monasteries in the forlorn snow clad Himalayas, the Lamas welcoming you with the warmth of their smiles, truly represents our ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage’.

The country coined the phrase, ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’, the philosophy that inculcates an understanding that the whole world is one family, obviously lives the phrase. India is amalgamation of languages, music, dance, folk traditions, rites and rituals, performing arts, festivals and fairs, literature and paintings, attires and cuisines. It is home to some of the most ancient civilizations and the largest population of ethnic tribes. Though it is a nation of immigrants and as a result a cultural mish-mash in every sense of the word, it is stringed together in unity and harmony. The South, North, West and Northeast have their own distinct traditions and almost every state has carved out its own cultural niche. There is hardly any culture in the world as varied as unique and as sui generis as India.

Indian culture is an art of living and is a composite mixture of varying styles and influences. Whether it is the matter of our gourmet journey characterized by the best kept secret delicacies of the Royals, the aroma of freshly ground herbs and spices, traditional style of cooking and culinary varieties or its Festivals that are characterized by colour, gaiety, enthusiasm, prayers and ritual, life vibrates to all sound of music and sways in a profusion of colours. In the realm of music, there are varieties of folk, devotional, classical, popular and pop and fusion music. Ayurveda and martial arts is indigenous to us. Our literary treasure speaks volume about our etiquette, humanness, ideals, principles and way of lives. Hospitality is our prominent characteristic.

At FRONTIERS BEYOND, we unfold and unveil the minute aspects of celebrating life with exquisitely handpicked pearls from our cultural trove.
