Where do we draw the line between religion, culture, and art?

Sadhguru @ Shiv Nadar University | Question 08

Hi, I am Sadhana. So, I am interested in, and I learn Carnatic music in my pastime. Around the same time last year, 2018, there was a controversy that broke out about four Carnatic musicians, famous ones, who sang Kriti's, which were not related to Hinduism, on Jesus Christ. The common folk believe that Carnatic music is sacred of Hindu origin and should remain so. My question is twofold. First if Carnatic music is a Hindu art, should it remain so? And second, considering the fact that India, as such, as a country is an amalgamation of multiple, diverse cultures. In fact, you kept mentioning culture when you answered the first question on religion. Considering the fact that India is an amalgamation of cultures, which are invariably related to our fates or religion, where do we draw the line between religion, culture, and art?
