ART & CULTURE

ART & CULTURE

Culture is a word which is used so commonly that it goes unacknowledged in our day to day life. But interestingly it rules almost every aspect of our life. We generally box it to music, literature, arts, architecture, language or clothing. In a way it is correct but if we look it more broadly culture is what we think, do and feel and learn from the people around us. Culture is learnt, shared and taught. It is partial to limit it down to few categories. Culture is symbolic, it is not something outside of us rather we exist within a culture. It is forgotten, learnt and a process which keeps on evolving.
