Abstract:

An ancient civilisation with over 5,000 years of history, India's rich cultural, religious and historical traditions have been influenced by numerous travellers, scholars, invaders and conquerors from across the world. The cultural, religious and historical traditions include the virtues of charity and philanthropy, drawing not just from Hindu mythology and scriptures, but several other religious philosophies and practices — such as Christianity, Zoroastrianism and Islam. Therefore, notions of charity and philanthropy are deeply rooted in Indian society and embedded in traditional ways of life.
