EARTH, PRITHVI, OR BHUMI IS DEDICATED TO PRESERVE THE COSMIC BALANCE AND THE UNIVERSAL ORDER
Indians are culturally driven to develop perseverance in the face of trials and tribulations of many kinds. The idea that Mother Earth is a witness to their pain and suffering provides man a sense of comfort and enables man to endure suffering with a sense of hope and an expectation of deliverance. Indians face calamities with calmness as they hope that Mother Earth would intervene on their behalf. The quality of Patience is imparted to the human character by Mother Earth.
