indian food
Indian Food

Most Indian cuisines are related by similar usage of spices. Often, Indian cooking is distinguished by the use of a larger variety of vegetables than many other well-known cuisines. Within these recognizable similarities, there is an enormous variety of local styles.

In the north and the west, Kashmiri and Mughlai cuisines show strong central Asian influences. Through the medium of Mughlai food, this influence has propagated into many regional kitchens. To the east, the Bengali and Assamese styles shade off into the cuisines of East Asia

arranged marriages
Arranged Marriages

An arranged marriage is a marriage where the marital partners are chosen by others based on considerations other than the preexisting mutual attraction of the partners.

This habit has been very common in noble families, especially in reigning ones, at the scope of combining and perhaps enforcing the respective strengths of the original families of the spouses.

A relevant part of history has been influenced by these unions.
