India is a land of diversity in several aspects. We associate the people and regions with the language they speak. For example, if a person is speaking Bengali or Punjabi, we will relate to them as living in the Bengal or Punjab regions. Moreover, each region across the nation has its own culture, traditions, food and lifestyle. But, have all these regional cultures existed forever? No, this is surely a misconception. The regional cultures that we experience and follow in the present day have evolved by the mixing of local traditions with ideas and values inculcated from other regions. While there are some old practices that people still follow, but, over time, they are evolving into new forms. Let us help you in gaining a deeper insight into the making of regional cultures with our class 7 history chapter 9 notes.
