7.Write a newspaper report on ‘Saving our culture and tradition’ in about 150-200 words.


Save our Culture and Tradition : by A.K.
Dmp, June20: A Seminar was conducted in G.K. Memorial School on the topic “Save our Culture and Tradition”. The participants from various schools expressed their concern on the fast degrading culture and tradition of the country and warned the young genera- tions of its devastating effects in future and reminded them of the need of the hour to preserve it.
They said that culture and tradition is very important for us as it is our way of introduction. Culture and tradition gives us identity in community. Now-a-days it is going to be lost, so we will have to save it.
Culture is our way of life. It includes our values, beliefs, customs languages etc. Our
culture measures our quality of life, our vitality & the health of our society. Through our culture we develop a sense of belong- ing personal & cognitive growth and the ability to relate to each other. Tradi- tion is the knowledge or belief which is transmitted or handed over orally from ancestors to posterity with- out the aid of written memorials.
Tradition is often contrasted with the goal of modemity. We are losing our culture and tradition because of industrialization & global- ization. Following the Western culture blindly will leave us nowhere. There would be indentity crisis for us. We would neither be Indians nor westerners.
