- Religion is very important in the culture of India. most people are Hindu or Muslim, but Christianity and Sikkhism, and Buddhism, and other religions are practiced.
-Clothing in India varies by area. Most women wear a sari made of colorful silk or cotton. A sari is a long piece of material that is draped around the body like a dress. Many men wear a dhoti. A dhoti is a white piece of cloth wrapped around the hips and pulled through the legs. Not all people dress traditionally in India, but the clothing is always loose due to the heat.
-Most children in India attend school. Some schools are modern and have books and computers. In poor areas or in remote areas, there can be 40-60 students in one classroom with little or no supplies. Most schools teach in English because there are too many regional languages.
