    Hindu Culture. The Meaning of Culture. Each of the religions of the world has its own culture, with many customs, traditions and refined qualities. Overview Hindu Kush is a pure Indica strain, named after the mountain range stretching miles between Pakistan and Afghanistan where it originated. The harsh climate of its homeland has conditioned this strain to express a thick, protective coat of crystal trichomes cherished by hash makers worldwide. India is known for its love of food and spices. Indian cuisine varies from region to region, reflecting the local produce, cultural diversity, and varied demographics of the country. Generally, Indian cuisine can be split into five categories – northern, southern, eastern, western, and northeastern.
