India has surely showcased herself as a land of colors, festivals and an indisputable energy.India is well known for its diverse culture and an undying brotherhood .But these are some conventions about India, India is much more than this. So what do people across the globe think about this country?

When I think of India, I think of Cricket and Bollywood, sunshine and beaches, the majestic white marble Taj Mahal, and the lovely festival of Diwali. I have heard there are problems with poverty as well, but it is a problem many countries share, so I hope India can find a way to solve that, like I hope other countries, including my own, can too.

@bluesa- It is good to hear that Bollywood movies and sport of Cricket and Taj Mahal these are the things which make you think about India. You see problems of poverty, pollution, traffic and population are there in every country. India is a vast country and it is the largest democratic country in the world. It has been progressing well and gradually trying to touch contours of a developed country from a developing country.

In India we experience all the four seasons ranging from scorching hot weather to bone chilling winter. It has indeed a chequered history and it is the largest democracy in the world. Yes, Indian Cricket team and its players are famous all over the world, specially where Cricket is played. India is second best cricket team in the world.

The question is too big. An intelligent answer would be too long for a comment.

Surely sir, we cannot present our views about a country in few lines, or as a matter of fact there even a book would be less, but i am just curious to know what comes first to your mind when somebody says INDIA.

I have many friends who travel to and have lived in India. I know many persons of Indian roots in the United States. I keep up with news of India and watch Indian movies. I would love to go myself but do not know if I ever will get there. When I think of India, I think of festivals and great beauty. I think of wonderful food and a rich culture of many diverse types. I think of the many animal and wildlife that roams wild in India. India is one of the oldest democracies one earth. I am fascinated by the religions and spiritualities. I think of a long and difficult history. i also think of overcrowding and over population. I think of heat and humidity. I think of many conflicts especially religious conflicts. And unfortunately, there is corruption. So my perception is both good and bad. This is true of all countries and of all peoples.

I loved your answer , the generic view that you represent is quite true, and i really liked the fact that you presented the fact that when somebody speaks about India its not just about festivals its also about corruption and such obscurities, that is the darkness prevailing in India behind all the colors it shows to the world. And that is where we need to grow. What a true response!

It is an interesting discussion. It will be interesting to see how many users who are not from India respond to your post. I feel India's status has risen in the recent past viz a viz other countries in the world.

I met few foreigners in Goa and tried to understand their view on India. Some say its an outsourcing destination, some say a cultural hub, some feel its crazy here but most common was naturally a very tempting place.
