Indian is my Religion

No other country in the world embraces the extraordinary mixture of ethnic groups, the profusion of mutually incomprehensible languages, the varieties of topography and climate, the diversity of religions and cultural practices and the range of levels of economic development that India does.

The sight two years ago, after the awe-inspiring experience of the world's largest exercise in democratic elections, of a Roman Catholic (Sonia Gandhi) making way for a Sikh (Manmohan Singh) to be sworn in as Prime Minister of India by a Muslim (President Abdul Kalam) in a country more than 80% Hindu has affirmed, as nothing else could have, the shining example of Indian pluralism.

Following picture depicts the same.
