This template is within the scope of WikiProject Culture, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of culture on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.
The image distracts in the article page. I suggest no image be used, to be consistent with "Culture of XYZ" wiki articles on numerous "XYZ" countries. I checked pages for Culture of Japan, China, France, England, Germany, Italy, Russia, Brazil, United States, Mexico, and other countries with large populations. The template is rarely used, and when used the template is clean, without image. For a consistent experience to wiki readers, I favor same style.
If image must be used, please explain why an image should be used only for India? Is it wiki MOS requirement or just personal preference?
Finally, if an image inclusion is agreed, I urge we vote on it. I, for one, prefer image of the national flag - as is the case with Culture of the Netherlands page. ApostleVonColorado (talk) 02:40, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
