Chandigarh: India is a country of diverse languages and cultures. With the most ancient of cultures buried deep in its bosom, India carries with itself the tag, ‘The Land of Sanatan Dharma.’ And, hence, the saints of India are looked upon with utmost respect and devotion, as the world watches them with great faith and awe.
