Culture of Madhya Pradesh

The culture of Madhya Pradesh captures the essence of Indian culture and presents it in a microcosm. The different castes of Hindus follow the rituals and traditions proscribed by their religion; they tend to be conservative and conventional, as do the Muslims. The Christians, in contrast, are easy going and relaxed and generally fun loving. Intercommunity marriages are rare though not unheard of, as there is always a ruckus when they do happen. The tribals of Madhya Pradesh have their own unique culture, with rites and rituals varying from tribe to tribe.

Madhya Pradesh is a craft lover's delight. The local handicrafts range from gossamer fine sarees woven in silk and cotton and named after the area they’re made in like Chanderi and Maheshwari. Coarse raw silk called kosa and tussar are also very popular. Cotton bedspreads and cushion covers, chanderi and maheshwari stoles and yards of dress material cater to western tastes. The tribal belt creates stylized figures of people, animals and birds in metal alloys called Dokra and wonderful curios in bell metal. Bead and metal jewellery worn by the tribals is another hot favourite with city dwellers.
