Indifference to religion.
A society where religious consideration doesn't determine anything. Religion is NOT a consideration in Government business. India is not a secular country. It is only a Multi-religious state!

During summer season, people use coolers in many states. It is necessary for them to keep a vigil on water level inside the cooler every morning for proper functioning of the machine. The adopted life-style of a cooler-user during summer is known as 'secularism' or more precisely "see-cooler-ism" !
