Religion, Rituals and culture
September 19th, 2010
Most of us think these three are related. Yes, religion and rituals are related. But are they related to culture. What is the definition of ‘Culture’?
According to dictionary the first definition is..
the quality in a person or society that arises from a concern for what is regarded as excellent in arts, letters, manners, scholarly pursuits, etc.
As you can see that culture is nothing to do what dress you were, and what god you worship, or language you use.
From last one week I am suffering from serious sound pollution at night. Because in India, we are allowed to do anything in the name of God. Every night 4 to 5 possessions with large drums with mad people(some are really mad, and some act as mad) goes to every street and make this terrible sound, in which you can not listen to your own voice. There may be many such rituals, but this one is the worst.
Many people who I talk to every day in office are also part of this. I mean they are also responsible. Because they donated the money which helps those possessions to make such a loud noise.
Now, what can we do to make these stupids understand that they are causing the problem due to their donation? As of now I don’t have an answer.
The best I can do is, request them and if possible help them change the mind(in my free time).
