    India has been the melting pot for its people. They comprise more than 2000 ethnic groups, 1652 mother tongues, 23 official regional languages in 28 state and eight union territories. Yet, it is considered to be one of the more successful countries in terms of its multiculturalism, despite tensions, broils and fiery harangues in favour of separation from the union in several states, for example, the Khalistan movement or the movement for a separate and an independent Sikh nation. Notably, many of the protagonists have been non-resident Indians living abroad. Another continuously simmering situation is that in the state of Kashmir. The former special status of Jammu and Kashmir now stands removed with the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35 A of the Indian Constitution; nontheless, tension continues to prevail in the Valley of Srinagar–Kashmir.
