The Varied Cultures And Their Significance

It is not a secret that the world is filled with customs and cultures. The cultures can have a huge significant impact on everyone in the world. Cultures have a long standing importance and significance in the world and mankind’s progressions. Certain customs which are recognised by the government of the country becomes laws. For example, there was no marriage laws in world, but on recognising the long standing customs about marriage, laws were created. Whereas the same government using laws had abolished or made the community give up one or more customs which they feel that were not meant to be in the society or something that can be considered as social evils. As the society became posh, several customers were asked to give up on. Visit this page for further information regarding Bhutan tour packages.


But, there is a huge contrasting theory in Sri Lanka. There was something called “Eka-ke-gama” which is euphemism for the actual custom. According to this custom, brothers of the same family will marry the same girl. This custom is highly controversial. It should be understood that according to this, a woman is being married to two or more brothers at the same time. As confusing as it may look, this was only done to make sure that there is no fight for properties between brothers and to ensure the unity of brothers. But, this custom was abolished by the government since it looked unethical for a woman to have kids of two or more brothers and they will never know who the actual father is. Several customs like this around the world is abolished by the use and issue of law.

Psychologists have understood the cultures can be broadly classifiedinto two categories. They are the collectivistic culture and the individualistic culture. People might think though India, Japan and Sri Lanka are all from collectivistic culture, they are all too different from each other. For example, while Indians would like to be wordy and warm. Sri Lankans would love to hugs and kiss with words of greetings. But, Japanese hate words. They love it if people are silent. When you are going to meet someone for the first time, you should be silent and make sure to give them their space. Silence is a well cherished quality among Japanese and it is a sign of respect. But, on broadly considering the collectivistic culture, they have a grand Bhutan festival tours and huge preparations for their festivals all around the country.

There is a huge variation in their cognition. You can find that both these people are too diverged in their mode of motivation. Basically, in collectivistic cultures, people are directly seen to be performing well under authority rather than when given freedom of choice. In individualistic cultures, it is totally opposite.
