Culture and Country
What is culture? It is what informs our way of being and shapes our beliefs and values. For example, loud slurping may be rude in the U.S but is encouraged in Japan. Each one of us engages in some or the other kind of culture every day, big or small. In simple words, culture is a kind of recipe that is prepared and passed down through generations – it is a shared language of a community.
Reading about different countries and cultures makes you more accepting, open and tolerant of other people. Comprehension of different cultures is not just limited to an appreciation of differences; it paves the way towards a more united world too.
Some believe that culture is lost and that there is no need to know where you come from. However, through our articles based on female Japanese warriors to Roman gladiators, we strive to build your knowledge of both your culture and others’.
