    Yes, sometimes it happened... Thats what i can see, in certain place they have some stigma, or perspectives and this usually build kind of boundaries as if we act differently, we might get refered as strange. We may see sometimes people dont like to be associated with their culture because they cant fit with local thinking. I love meet new cultures since we can learn a lot. Respect are needed for this.

    Good one to think, culture supposed to define the diversity of thinking that grow in a society...from art to how to live and how we expand the horizon. what you said here is interesting. (Report)Reply

    Thank you, Soul...Yes, what if it is the case that culture and diversity are often not tied in ways we expect or suspect?

    Innovation renews life. Man should be imbued with the spirit of innovation. It alone leads to progress. When it ceases, culture stagnates and dies. Crisp and profound as ever! (Report)Reply

    Such a great interpretation, Valsa. Thank you so much.
