Ministry Questions is an informational website which aims to answer questions relating to India, Indian culture, traditions and history. This site aims to breakdown any misconceptions that you may have a about the vast and as a result very varied country that is India.
This website contains three main categories of questions: Bollywood, Fashion and Indian Weddings. We will however be looking to keep expanding to include more categories once we have got a better idea of what people are most interested in or indeed where the majority of the stereotypes lie.
You are more than welcome to contact us and let us know which categories you wish us to feature, and do please also submit any questions you have. We will then add these questions to the site and will try and answer them as best and as quickly as we can.
If you are unsatisfied with an answer supplied on this website, feel that an answer is misleading, unhelpful, inaccurate or only a partial answer, then please let us know and once we have sufficiently looked into the issue you have raised we will send you a direct response, and if required will amend the particular answer in question on the site.
We want this website to be a safe and interesting space that will inspire and inform people and will therefore not be answering any questions that can be considered as racist, or offensive in any way, so please do not waste your time in sending them in.
We guarantee that all answers provided on this website are written with the utmost care, time and effort. We have procedures in place to ensure that questions are answered in a sufficiently detailed and balanced manner. However, other than to education and inform, we do want to make sure our answer as concise where possible, so will be posting to the point responses. In depth research will be done though and a variety of viewpoints will be considered, even if they are not always mentioned in the answer.
Specifying an exact timeframe for when questions can be answered by will not be possible, because this will continue to vary depending on the question and the number of resources available. Some questions will require more research and may even call for outside collaborations and fact checking. We do hope to answer questions within 10 working days, but this will largely depend on the volume of questions we are receiving at present. You will however receive an email response from us shortly after submitting your question to confirm that it has been received, to inform you which team will be looking at it and with an estimated timeframe in which you can expect a response.
Once your question has been answered you will be notified by email.
You can send your emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have so far answered the following questions: What is Bollywood? / Bollywood is the smaller and less successful sister of Hollywood, right? / Are Bollywood films just remakes of Hollywood films? / What other traditional Indian clothes are there other than sarees? and What happens at an Indian wedding?
Watch out for the answer to the question, how do I prepare for an Indian wedding?
