Culture is the idea, value and beliefs of a particular civilization at a particular period. It is more than anything else, ‘A State of Mind’.

It is the way we behave, react to certain things, the way we perceive and interpret our values and beliefs. In its varied manifestations it forms the basic principles, ethics, workings and behavior.

To define culture and limit it to these words would be an understatement. Its like trying to control tornado and limit it to a corner. It’s a system of emancipation which continues to absorb within itself and pass on the society, all that is activated by different races and religions, who come in close proximity with each other, giving it a new flavour and colouring it in a spectrum of new colours, over period of time.

Culture from my view of point is a concept based on a term first used in classical antiquity by the Roman orator Cicero: "cultura animi" (cultivation of the soul). This non-agriculture use of the term 'culture" re-appeared in modern Europe in the 17th century referring to the betterment or refinement of individuals, especially through education. During the 18th and 19th century it came to refer more frequently to the common reference points of whole peoples, and discussion of the term was often connected to national aspirations or ideals. Some scientists such as Edward Tylor used the term "culture" to refer to a universal human capacity.

In the 20th century, "culture" as a central concept in anthtopology, encompassing the range of human phenomena that channnot be directly attributed to genetic inheritance. Specifically, the term "culture" in America anthropology had two meanings: 
      1. The evolved to calssify and represent experiences with                     symbols, and to act imaginatively and creatively; and 
      2. The distinct ways that people, live differently, classified and              represented their experiences, and acted creatively.
