    Society, culture and community?

    Hello,

    I would really appreciate it if someone could help me figure out the difference between community, society and culture. It seems the meaning
    overlaps to such an extent that it is hard to find the correct word to use.

    Does a social group means 'community' ?

    Under what circumstances a society could be called a community?

    If India has many cultures, then I should call it 'Indian society' not 'Indian community'. What do you think?

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Please provide some sentences showing how you want to use them.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    I don't understand what your sentence is supposed to mean, so I can't tell you whether you have used the words correctly or not.

    I'd be more likely to use Indian society. When I hear Indian community used in BrE, it tends to refer to people of Indian origin living in the UK.

    A social group with peculiar habits does not care that the group has members from different cultures.
