Tradition and culture. That is our heritage from our ancestors passed down to us to preserve and nurture for the future generation. Whether these are artifacts, architectural houses, ancient places, custom that make up one’s actions, they are part of our lives. Imagine living in the present and just look into the future without a glimpse of the past, very odd indeed.
Every country is rich in culture. To give us an idea of what they are, here are some of the cultural aspects.
Science – Best example is Biology, which is the study of life. Humans, plants, animals, insects or anything that has life. These studies helped us learn the growth, function, how they evolved and how these are distributed in our daily lives. This study also made us realize how we interact with every other living thing.
Technology – This is the method of making and using machines, tools, techniques and systems to solve a problem as well as achieve a goal. It is also used to improve a solution to a function that already exists. What better way to put all these in one word? Engineering. You must be good in Mathematics with all the calculations you will be doing.
Cuisine – Culinary arts has taken new heights in preparing delectable and delicious meals and dishes. Cooking has influenced the basic science of cooking and has made the simple cook into a world class chef.
Social Structure – In Sociology, it defines the social behavior of an individual. It is also influenced by the various work or jobs that enable a person to move according to his expertise. A teacher imparts her knowledge to her class; a mechanic uses a set of tools to repair a car; a plumber extending plumbing services in the community; a lawyer defending his client. Each individual acts culturally, depending on where his abilities lie.
Aesthetics – Art and music. Famous paintings that were almost life-like and painstakingly brought to the canvas by distinguished artists. Music has definitely evolved from the simple humming to the different beat in today’s industry and has produced a lot of talented musicians both locally and internationally.
However these cultural heritage were handed down to us, they are very important factors that make up a person. Knowing how to make them into good use and enrich our lives, makes it a positive way of living. These are proof that a person is unique and has his own identity.
