What comes to your mind when you hear the word Indian culture?
And why we call it only Indian culture, not Indian tradition?
Do you know what the difference between a culture and tradition is?
If not, then today we will try to find out what is the difference between culture and traditions,
so let’s begin,
Tradition is the belief and behavior which passes through one generation to another by societies and governments,
such as beliefs, customs, rituals, anthems, holidays and more.
Whereas Culture symbolizes some specific characteristics of a society at a particular point of time such as
knowledge, art, morals, law, customs, and habits acquired as a member of society.
Culture is an umbrella term under which tradition comes.
What is Indian Culture?
India’s culture is among the world’s oldest civilization, began almost 4,500 years ago,
and the good part is India almost successful in preserving, protecting and persuading its culture and traditions from generations,
and the reason could be science because most of the Indian cultures and traditions are proven scientifically
such as Namaste, touching elder’s feet, women putting Bindi and Sindur, most of the festivals,
and the ways of celebrating it.
Importance of trees in Indian culture:
We all know the importance of trees, which is not only constraints with a cultural aspect but also important for our day to day life
because without trees we can’t live, trees are the ultimate source of oxygen,
you know a single tree provides oxygen to at least two-person,
and that’s why we all pray and respect trees as a form of god which gives life,
all trees keep their own importance some with medicinal properties and rest in the other way around,
Here is a list of sacred trees in Indian Culture, which are:
Peepul (also known as the Tree of Enlightenment of Lord Buddha)
Banyan (Tree of Life, symbolizes the creator Brahma, as it symbolizes longevity)
Banana (The Resourceful Tree, considered as very sacred as it symbolizes Lord Vishnu. That’s why banana use to offer to God Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi for a healthy and prosperous life)
Mango (Icon of Love and Fertility, its leaf symbolizes as Goddess Lakshmi which keeps negativity away that’s why people put it on their doors as Toran)
Beal (Bel Patra/Bilwa Leaf)(A Medicinal Tree, which comes with trifoliate leaves which symbolize the holy trinity i.e. Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, also the third eye of Shiva)
Coconut (Ceremonial Food, mostly found in coastal areas, people use its every part in daily life, associated with God Ganesh also symbolize the head and its breaking means breaking one’s ego, selfishness)
Neem (A Tree of Healing-with anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties)
Sandalwood (Sacred Incense which comes with antiseptic and astringent properties)

Importance of Saving behavior in Indian Culture:
India is a Heritage rich country, where there are 38 UNESCO world heritage sites are presents in India,
which is the perfect example of showing the saving nature of Indian, not only heritage, but we Indian also save everything which belongs to us,
Do you remember Chipko Movement which had started in 1970 in Uttarakhand, a nonviolent social and ecological movement
by rural women villagers aimed at protecting trees and forests slated for government-backed logging.
It’s in our inborn nature of saving our belonging, sometimes we call it Jugaad technology (Keeping things ready by another way round) for keeping things alive and working,
Saving things on a daily basis means, saving money on the individual level, but also saving the tendency of society significantly shortens the exploitation of new recourses, energies at a huge level.

How Recycling in India works:
Are recycling and saving terms are the same?
The answer is no, saving something means keeping things in its original form whereas recycling means
changing the form of an object by using the same building materials.
From ages, we keep aside the recyclable things from the daily use items such as
paper ( Newspaper, Old Books, Copies, etc.) Plastics (Bottles, milk pouches, etc.) metals and other things and sell those things to raddiwallas or kabadiwalas
