The ancient Indian culture of the Vedic times is an extremely rich and exalted culture. During this period, which goes back several thousand years B.C., the various arts and sciences attained a pinnacle of ascendancy. The brilliance of the advocates of this culture lies in the fact that they inculcated it in their daily chores. Over a period of time, the Vedic culture became a way of life in India.
