  1. 1. Dr. AminaAtherTeam Lead Indian Foundation forRediscovering Traditional Knowledge BangaloreINDIA <br />
  2. 2. Introduction<br />
  3. 3. Beautiful peninsula, a subcontinent.<br />7th largest country in the world extending to a equal distribution of 1,203.3 million (2009) which makes2 India the second largest country in regards with the population following china It is the one of the oldest civilizations in the world with a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage. <br />

Population <br />Population:<br />1,166,079,217 (2009 est)<br />Growth rate:<br />1.548% (2009 est)<br />Birth rate:<br />22.22 births/1,000 population (2009 )<br />Death rate:<br />6.4 deaths/1,000 population (2009 )<br />Life expectancy:<br />69.89 years (2009 )<br />–male:<br />67.46 years (2009 )<br />–female:<br />72.61 years (2009 )<br />Fertility rate:<br />2.72 children born/woman (NFHS-3, 2008)<br />
  5. 5. Ethnicity<br />
  6. 6. Ethnicity …<br />This tree diagram depicts the relationships of the major ethnic, linguistic and religious groups in India. For example, an H under Gujarati implies a Hindu, Gujarati-speaking Indian of Indo-Aryan ancestry. However this is not a hard and fast rule. For example, in South India many members of the Muslim community are of Arab, Iranians or Turks origin, but have Kannada as their first language. This list excludes caste groups like the Dalits which is a socio-political identity across linguistic, religious and racial lines. Indeed, it should be noted that the terms 'Indo-Aryan' and 'Dravidian’ refer more to the linguistic difference rather than racial differences.<br />
  7. 7. Role of traditions … In regards with medicine and beliefs…..<br />Indian culture hold a strong perspective in their daily routine . They depend on traditions rather than available modern resources , even food mattes a lot , so they give a lot of importance to child care especially in the rural parts of India . <br />
