Diverse yet Similar Cultures
Though we belong to the same human species, we represent ourselves in a different way through our eating habits, clothing, festivities, culture, music and dance. Culture unites the people from across the globe, providing immense joy and displaying the diversities. Celebrating the culture means the celebration of communities and enjoying the varied expressions in common. Culture bridges the gap between different people & nations, preserving the roots and strengthening the bonds.
