India is a land of great variety and its unique and ancient civilization has been a great unifying factor. The vast number of diverse faiths, beliefs, religions, lifestyles, languages etc. may confound a stranger, but in essence they represent the different aspects of one nation as do the petals of a lotus flower in bloom.
