More on Culture[edit]

This page needs a section on cultural history and since culture is so closely linked to religion in India, a note on Islamic and western influences. I think we also need more on the actual culture of India (or diversity of culture) and less about art (or it should be called 'Indian culture and art' and be a redirect from indian art and indian culture). Any thoughts? --Pranathi 05:31, 6 May 2005

I think that the best article on Indian Culture is this one,which I read yesterday. I think this will answer your query.

Holy Hell...[edit]

Someone tag this with a clean-up!


User at and User:TanmayaPanda are persistently adding content that is either unsupported or over-emphasizing a single state Odisha culture. These are violations of WP:V, WP:NPOV and WP:DUE policies of wikipedia.

This article is about Culture of India, not Culture of Odisha. The article needs to present the overall culture, without over emphasizing a single state such as Odisha. WP:TE and WP:COATRACK to this article are not constructive. User at and User:TanmayaPanda are invited to explain on this talk page why the recent excessive Odisha-related additions are WP:DUE and WP:NPOV for the context and scope of this article.

Additionally, user at, please stop vandalizing this article by re-inserting claims such as, "(...),It is basically hindu culture ,the oldest culture of the world...(....)". Read WP:LEAD. Ms Sarah Welch (talk) 12:27, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Dear sarah,

Is Odisha not the part of India? Odisha’s language, dance, Music, Painting are classical so it should be articulated in subject of India culture . Please don’t dishonest any part of India and don’t play the divide and conquer game here…

What do you mean by “over-emphasizing “ ??????? I have mentioned about Odia Language. It is 1st classical language from Indo Aryan family and it is a true information. You have removed the Odia greeting “Nameste/Juhar” why? Like each part of India it mentioned here with their own verse and I did for Odia. For you kind information there are 43 million Odia people use same greeting and its significant.

You have removed Ratha Yatra Festival in Festival Colum. It is India largest annual gather fastival. Is it not significant and over-emphasizing? Same fastival is celebrate through out the world among Indian community and it’s a Identity of Indian culture.

If you don’t know the real culture of India ,Please do some self-study. And Please don’t use such word like “over-emphasizing” I Love my Nation India , and I love each part of My Mother India equally. I don’t need you certificate for the respect and love to My Mother. Yes I have added some information relevant to Odisha as Part of Mother India . and I will do it when ever it will be needed.

Long Live India .. Long live India Culture…. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TanmayaPanda (talkcontribs) 13:35, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
