Weekly Photo Challenge – Culture

The Urge To Wander

Every custom, folklore, tradition and value system across Eastern cultures, is heavily influenced by religion. Secularisation of society and mass tourism, pose real threats to these shared beliefs and traditional ways of life.  Traditional dress is already on its way out, and language, customs and value systems are constantly under assault from global media.

Imagine a homogenous world without cultural variations. That would be a tragedy of huge proportions. 

“Every view of the world that becomes extinct,
every culture that disappears,
diminishes a possibility of life.”
~ Octavio Paz
