They give more importance to family. I think India is the only country who respect marriage system and live together and take care of their children and prefer united family concept. Respecting elders, helping people who are in need are their habits.
But now a days slowly people are shifting towards western culture. It is not at all a good sign.
Another accept which is spoiling the atmosphere here is politics. The politicians with their selfish motto try to create difference between people by bringing in caste, religion etc., and try to play with people. Another aspect is poverty. Some people are trying to be mischievous and play with innocent people. If these things are stopped, India will be a heaven to live in.
However with some limitations definitely India is unique in many respects.

We are, no doubt, traditionally and culturally a rich nation and take pride in saying that we are 'Indians'. But I think patriotism or love for one's Motherland is not a feeling unique to Indians alone; it is a universal feeling spreading across nations. So, while being proud and happy about our unique qualities, let us also be ready to be humble enough to accept others as they are.

As for this forum, author only describes the positive side of the Indians. We are not all that tidy. India is among the most untidy countries in the world. Hope, Swacch Bharath mission will lift that curse off. Indians are pretty narrow-minded according to me. We refuse to accept change. It's good to believe in ancient ideals, but not when it is going to ruin you. We are tolerant. I'll give you that. We tolerate. Anything and everything. Crimes, vices, social evils,.. anything, we just tolerate. Our justice system is a joke. Unemployment is our employment.
You see, our ancestors were smart.Intelligent.Foresighted. We aren't. We are just slowly ruining a beautiful country. Be an Indian that India deserves.
