Art and Culture Unifies Us
 
Art is an expression of a particular person, or group of people. Art has a big effect on culture, as it is symbolic of traits, morals, and religious characteristics. An artist is defined as a person whose creative work shows sensitivity and imagination. That sensitivity and imagination is what makes culture. Artists have "the ability to manipulate the form of their art therefore manipulating the experience of that art." Art is everywhere; it is in the car we drive, the magazine we read, and in the food that we eat. Art is something that influences many parts of our lives.
Culture is the identity of a group of people living in a specific place; they have their own sketch of life and what the culture says they follow that. We have seen that a lot of people when they do some specific things they first think about their culture, what their culture says on this occasion. Especially on the occasion of wedding, and some other celebrating days they follow their culture strictly. Those who do not follow their culture or do some changes in their culture are said to have not been given any values because they are not following their religion.

Both art and culture together give people hope, faith and reason to stay together and joyful. Let us take the example of Delhi:-

Delhi boasts about its rich tradition and sound cultural values. The rich heritage and culture can be seen in the lifestyle, demography, art, crafts and music. Delhi being the capital of India has many art and craft galleries along with auditoriums that host regular cultural events. Delhi is a cosmopolitan city where people are open to embracing new ideas and lifestyle. People from all parts of the country live here. All major festivals of India are celebrated and the Unity in Diversity is evident in social and cultural gatherings.
 
A country as diverse as India is symbolized by the plurality of its culture. India has one of the world's largest collections of songs, music, dance, theatre, folk traditions, performing arts, rites and rituals, paintings and writings that are known, as the 'Intangible Cultural Heritage' (ICH) of humanity
Thus India has a myriad of landscapes, great heritage and culture, varied flora and fauna.
