Few tenets of the 'Bharatiya sanskriti'(based on a one nation sensibility principle) which tend to shape the 'conservative' Indian identity (as established by self-appointed culture upholders) :
Karma is Dharma : In order to achieve good karma it is important to live life according to dharma, what is right.
Athithi Devo Bhav : Guest is god(Read: Make your home a heavenly abode for your visitor)
