In a country as dissimilar and complex as India , it is not astonishing to find that people here depict the rich glories of the past, the culture, traditions and values proportional to geographic locations and the various distinctive manners, habits and food that will always continue to be purely Indian. According to our rich past, a country like India has been invaded by armies, traders and migrants who brought with them their own habits, faiths, practices and honourings which have all added to the rich feel of Indian life and living.
From the gigantic Himalayas to the naturalized land of south, from the arid deserts of the west to the oozy deltas of the east, from the dry heat and cold of the central Plateau to the cool forest hills, Indian lifestyles clearly exalt the topography of its region. The food, clothing and habits of an Indian differ in accordance to the place of origin.
However, men in villages are still more comfortable in traditional attire like kurtas, lungis, dhotis and pyjamas. Indian fashion includes a wide range of designs for women, men, and children. The men in cities wear shirts and pants and live in a modernized manner.
However the dressing style of Indians has been influenced by the western. Yet they are purely Indian from inside. They have some traditional values which cannot be surpassed by anyone. Now too, the surname of an Indian is based on his caste or place of origin or his family occupation. Men are still believed to be the head of a family and are referred for all decisions though they no longer continue to be a single earner. Parents are looked upon with respect and regard. The values they have inculcated in their children can de exhibited the way they show respect and love towards their parents. Children are financially supported by their parents throughout their education. Inspite of being so westernised Indians believe that some lines should never be crossed.
