India and the Arts
India's traditions of dance and music are universally appreciated. The country boasts masterpieces of architecture and decoration. The historical melodramas and mundane soap operas of the Bollywood film studios are beloved by many. Whether it is the simple joys of a nun's embroidery, the humor of a village puppet show, or the mastery of a sitar virtuoso, the arts of India are rich, varied, complex and satisfying.
