The Power of Culture to Create a Better Future

 

It is rightly emphasized that “The future depends on what you do today.”  And whatever we do today represents our culture. Actually Culture is a word for people’s ‘way of life’, meaning the way they do things. Different groups of people may have different cultures. Culture is seen in people’s writing, religionmusicclothescooking, and in what ever they do which makes their country different and unique from others.

Culture simply means to control the over nature. It includes the outlook, attitude, values, goals and practices shared by society. As different people have different cultures, they have different ways of thinking about and understanding the world and their own lives. As for my country, I believe that my culture is a lot different from others. My culture says to meet everyone with a smile. My culture teaches me how to do good deeds. It teaches me to prevail brotherhood. How would a nation survive without brotherhood? Without peace? How would u want your future to be? Violent? No right? So that’s how our culture helps to create a better future. We all would definitely want a peaceful future and if we follow our culture, we would definitely have it like we want. Our culture also includes the way we dress. Our dressing plays one of the most important parts in our culture. It shows our belonging to our country. As in my country women are supposed to cover themselves or they are said to be half responsible for violence. If we don’t follow this tradition then definitely our future can’t be good. If we follow these traditions now, our children who are the actual future will learn this and this would lead them towards betterment and as it is said, “A person without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots”

Culture also means the integrated pattern of human knowledge and belief. And whatever people believe today comes from education. As Malcolm X said, “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” Education is the main way for a better future. If we won’t be educated now, what will happen in the future? My country’s culture teaches me to get education, no matter how long you have to travel. And if we follow the culture today, we would get what we want in the future. Education is the key to success. It can help us in the development of our nation. People now days usually forbid women education but The founder of Pakistan, Quid-e- Azam M.A.Jinnah said, “NO nation can achieve anything, until it is women who go side by side with men even to the battle field.” Women and men are equal. This difference has been finished now days. There are working and successful women who influence our daughters to do something better for the future. That is the power of our culture. It influences the today’s world which inspires the new generation. Education also enables us to create new technology which makes our lives easier. Today, the world is much more problem free than the olden times. The reason is because technology is invented. More technology may help our lives get easier and lead us towards a better future.

Cultures influence our lives. They teach us the rules to live in a country. Our culture also says to follow rules. We follow rules and this can be counted as a step towards betterment. Not following rules may lead to accidents and accidents are the first step towards violence and terrorism. Following rules, whether in our country, home, school or anywhere, can be counted as a help towards a better future.

In the end I would just like to say that now a day’s people are forgetting about our culture. Following our culture might help us create a better future. Every little step counts. Now it’s up to us if we want to start the journey because as Bob Marley said “Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny.
