As the proverb says ‘Every human’s ability may be strengthened or increased by culture’. Culture is considered as the strong foundation on which we build our paradise. Be it in any country or place they have their own culture and tradition. India is known as one the culturally rich countries and we Indians follow en number diverse culture in a united manner.
Culture is one such thing which one cannot learn in day or month. The root comes from family and goes on as a part of life. So indirectly it means we learn the basic principles of tradition and culture from elders at young age and it get polished when we grow. In the middle age stage where one go to school and merge with people from various cultural backgrounds, is the stage where we learn the real meaning of it. The compassionate feeling towards others is the byproduct of this cultural merging.
As a case study we can take children in middle age stage who are especially studying in a boarding school. Boarding schools in India are considered to be the place for cultural exchange as children from various places, classes, community, tradition come and stay in the same place for a longer period. They get to know each other in depth during the course of time and the best part of it is that they adopt the positive aspects from each diverse culture and enhance their own. The connection here between the school and culture is nothing but it is the platform where the cultural exchange happen and school can facilitate it by organizing programs and workshops to create understanding about the needs and benefits of holding to a culture or tradition.For an example, Oakridge International Boarding School Vizag,
the best international school in Vizag, offer a podium to its students where they come across even foreign students and their culture. The school celebrates each culture in campus to make the children understand the specialties and importance of each one. They organizes programs like camps for kids from all over the world in a grand manner keeping all the potential values of tradition and culture so that the young ones can see, experience and make it a part of their life.After all this is what we meant by culture, to learn how to respect other’s culture without losing yours. As Albert Camus says “without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle.”
