With nearly 1 billion people, India is the second most populous nation in the world. It is impossible to speak of any one Indian culture, although there are deep cultural continuities that tie its people together. English is the major language of trade and politics, but there are fourteen official languages in all. India has seven major religions and many minor ones, six main ethnic groups, and countless holidays every year.

Religion is central to the Indian culture, and its practice can be seen in virtually every aspect of life in the country. Hinduism is the dominant faith of India, serving about 80 percent of the population. Ten percent worship Islam, and 5 percent are Sikhs and Christians, the rest (a good 45 million) are Buddhists, Jains, Bahai, and more.
