Indian culture

Some of the most interesting entries of Swami Balendu's blog are surely those in which he compares Indian culture and customs to Western culture and traditions.

Sometimes things work similar, with small differences, and sometimes there is a fundamental difference which cannot be overseen.

Whether it is traditions and celebrations, rituals and religion or manners and habits, Swami Ji depicts the differences in an often humourous way.
