Perhaps the only thing more difficult than to be indifferent to India would be to describe or understand Indian CULTURE completely. Here is what some literates have to say… : Here is what some literates have to say… "India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most astrictive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only!" --Mark Twain “I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the cultures of all the lands to be blown about my house as Freely as possible. But I refuse to be blown off my feet by any.” - (Mahatma Gandhi) Hofstede’s Dimensions : Hofstede’s Dimensions In the 1970s Hofstede developed four dimensions of culture based on an extensive survey conducted among IBM managers in over 50 countries for work values.
