The centuries-old relationship between Malaysia and India was initiated and sustained by trade, but the impact of socio-cultural influence was equally dominant in shaping the multi-ethnic and multi-cultural façade of Malaysia. It would not be an exaggeration to say that this cultural exchange has been a vital factor in shaping the history of Malaysia. In recent years, socio- cultural factors have assumed greater importance and significance in the continuity of bilateral relations between Malaysia and India. This paper examines how culture boost ties between Malaysia and India especially through the Indian diaspora, movies, dance, drama and music. It analyses how globalisation has intensified the cultural interactions and connectivity between Malaysia and India.
