God created all the men alike. It also created an environment suitable for the survival of man. However, man has messed with both these things. Men built boundaries and created several differences on the basis of his religion, caste, creed, economic status and what not. He likes to socialize with people belonging to his stature and looks down upon those lower than him. The advancements in technology brought about by man have intervened with the normal functioning of the environment and it is on the verge of destruction.
Man and Culture
Culture has a huge impact on the upbringing of a man. It largely influences the way a person’s mind and overall personality shapes up. This is the reason why people belonging to different cultures have different mindsets. A thing or situation that might appear normal to people belonging to one culture may seem completely bizarre to others. The people of India have a high regard for their culture. Indians believe in respecting their elders and obeying them. Unlike the foreign nations, children in India keep living with their parents even as they become adult.
Indians welcome everyone with an open heart and respect other’s religious and cultural sentiments. People belonging to different castes and religions live here in peace and harmony. Similarly, people belonging to other cultures stick to their values that help in shaping their personality and view point.
Man and Environment
While the human life has improved and enhanced in various ways, this advancement has also had a number of negative repercussions. One of these is its impact on the environment. The industrial revolution proved to be a boon for the society. Numerous people got jobs and several new products were produced to make life comfortable for man. Several industries have been established since then. Numerous products are being manufactured each day for our use. Both day-to-day used items as well as luxury items are being produced in these industries to enhance our lifestyle. While our lifestyle is being enhanced, life on earth is getting degraded. The growing number of industries and vehicles has led to air, water and land pollution.
This pollution is degrading the environment. Several other human practices are also contributing to the pollution. It has impacted biodiversity and is causing several ailments among man as well as other living beings.
It is time man must stop and think where he is heading. It is time to go back to our roots and stop polluting the environment. If we continue this way, our planet would no longer be worth living.
