Andhra Pradesh has a concoction of various communities, religions, customs, lifestyles and cultures. In broad terms, the people of Andhra are nice and friendly, who live in perfect harmony, inspite of belonging to different castes and following different religions. Indeed, many people have come from other states and areas to settle in Andhra Pradesh for commercial reasons. Like people from other parts of India, Andhra dwellers are kind, polite and god-fearing, who reside maintaintaing social peace and religious accord.
Infact, there is no segregation on the basis of caste or color, yet
every society has its own tribal identity, which is known as its caste.
The caste conflict in the state is nothing more than the existing
tribalism. The castes have been categorized in two, one being based on
the tribal, cultural and religious differences, while the other is based
on duties. Except from the Brahmins, all the other castes are
exceptionally localized in Andhra Pradesh. Every caste has its own deity
and different social formalities.
Few people still observe old traditions, which forbid interaction
between various castes due to religious, cultural and tribal concerns.
From the primitive times, Andhra Pradesh makes the abode of foresters,
hill-men and other tribes. The nomads and tribals still dwell in the
expanse of the state. In the big cities and towns, people have taken up
contemporary jobs and businesses, yet there are lots of people who rely
on agriculture, cottage and handicraft industry. In short, people of
Andhra Pradesh have held on to their roots and yet have proceeded with
the modern times.
