India is a land of beauty, art and a land of diversity. In spite of its varied cultures and traditions it is united by the melodies, the rhythms, and an unparalleled zest in enjoying music! It is not a surprise that each of these diverse regions have evolved a distinctive style of music and dance adding more colours to this already rich culture of India. Dance is an emotion, Dance is an Expression, Dance is freedom and Dance is a way of life. India is home to many different dance styles. All these dance forms were suppressed during the British rule and after independence Indian Government has taken great efforts to re-establish these jewels of the Indian culture. India Post in 1975 has commemorated these Indian Classical Dances on Stamps.
