India is a mix of many vibrant cultures and colours. One can clearly distinguish the North from the South and the East from the West simply based on ethnic differences. With so many varied languages, festivals, religions and traditions, it makes us all the more exotic and incredible to the rest of the world!

We define ‘unity in diversity’ like no other country does and are absolutely flamboyant in our description. Our lavish cultures speak for themselves and make us as colourful as ever. These 65 photos will show exactly how vibrant we are:
