Definition

Means Indian culture and heritage
Few tenets of the 'Bharatiya sanskriti'(based on a one nation sensibility principle) which tend to shape the 'conservative' Indian identity (as established by self-appointed culture upholders) :

Karma is Dharma : In order to achieve good karma it is important to live life according to dharma, what is right.

Athithi Devo Bhav : Guest is god(Read: Make your home a heavenly abode for your visitor)
Family comes first: Family has to be the most important thing in a person's life
Women should wear sari: They should wear respectable clothes in order to be admired rather than be leched


The issue of what truly is 'Bhartiya Sanskriti' is discussed and debated about on various platforms such as blogs, forums,Slutwalks and TV shows with people citing the Kamasutra as example of a sexually radical early Indian culture.
