With every step towards the coming age, new settlements, civilizations, the country ran through ups and downs and finally addressed the coming of religions. Religions, which are like the air to the rather breathless culture. In no time India was given the tag of land many religions. Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism and Buddhism, the four most followed religions in the world began their journey in India. These religions stand apart when it comes to customs but still are practiced under one roof. And hence it is said that India has unity in diversity.
