Shraddha - a word in Hindi language - is used for the word 'Faith' by most people in India. But it may be kept in mind that there is no one word in English equivalent to 'Shraddha'. Shraddha - mostly used in religious context in India - is actually a combination of (totally profound and unshakable) trust + respect + devotion + affection and love + confidence and dedication for the almighty or a belief or even for a person or a principle or an object.
