In a country as diverse as India, it is not surprising to find that people here reflect the rich glories of the past, the culture, traditions and values relative to geographic locations and the numerous distinctive manners, habits and food that will always remain truly Indian. People in India eat the most diverse varieties of food all of which add to the rich Indian culture. The beauty of the Indian people lies in the spirit of tolerance, give-and-take and a composition of cultures.
Festivals like Diwali, also called the festival of “Lights”, Holi, a festival of Colors, Id, Christmas, are all celebrated by sharing sweets with family, neighbors and friends. Sweets also vary from region to region but Bengali sweets are famous through out India. The most popular Bengali sweets are RASOGULLA (Cheese dumpling in sugar syrup) and RASMALAI (Cheese dumplings in sweetened milk), made from fresh Indian cheese called Paneer.
