Melange of Cultures
I feel the purpose of the culture is to share the our social values, lifestyle, understandings, knowledge, belief, assumptions, goals that are learned from earlier generations and passed on to succeeding generations. It's a special purpose tool/system devised for maintaining the rich culture and evolving with generations for better human beings.
Our culture is our identity from where we belong to.
Culture brings the peoples together for a common purpose. Some time for the same cause in different cultures they will have different traditions. As I learned, it is a very strange but so humble purpose to bring good luck. The Danes have a unique culture of doing so. During the year, people save all short of broken dishes, plates, cups, or bowls until New Year’s Eve. On the New Year, they throw the broken dishware at the homes of friends and family as a way to wish them good luck for the new year.
Is it not so amazing?
Oh that is so unique...it's so beautiful that you shared this..Once we learn to apperciate the diversity of cultures within our own land or outside, we become rich in our perceptions to an extent of easy acceptance and beyond...
What is the purpose of 'Culture' according to you?
Mélange of Cultures? Oh, India it is! It is truly mind boggling to be in the midst of all that color, diversity and linguistic charm that each region surprises one with! The food, the people, the archaic wonders; everything in India sings mysticism! Culture to most is just commonality, but to me, culture is a mélange of a variety of foods, clothing, people, art, and most importantly, experiences. Now that, is what a mélange culture feels like...
Culture defines every human being. Knowledge is the vast ocean where it is not possible for a human being in one life to engulf the whole of the ocean. Culture is a kind of tributary of that ocean of knowledge which helps human beings to understand his share of meant knowledge with the help of which he/she could successfully afloat in his boat of life.
