First and foremost, we need to understand what the culture is.Culture is the practice of our existing norms and values,assumptions and the common lifestyle of peoples living in asociety. It also means the particular groups behavioural skill to knot the peoples into the perfection and improve their perspective. So, it is often said as unlike other ornaments culture is also such an ornament of the society whose lusture goes on enhancing with the passage of the time. Moreover culture is very
much influenced by the thoughts and attitudes of peoples living in the society. Thoughts and attitudes determine the actions.Actions and activities gives shape to the lifestyle and in the long run, lifestyle transforms to the culture. Well, culture is also identity and splendor to the society and in saying culture to the society is just as the soul to the body. Culture is a very complex study which comprises the both experience thoughts and the attitude and often said that culture is the firebird that worldly wise men cannot catch, as it surrenders to those pure at heart. Indeed, it was imerged out due to the acts in the past and is able to have greater impact in the future of people
living in the society. Regarding this, there are two forms of cultural wave or development which are retrospect and the prospect that is the prominent factor to be discussed. Simply put, cultural retrospect comprises the sequence of our past order and the historical civilization. How the human civilization in the past was and how did we form the society, follow rites and rituals, religion, etc is all related to the cultural retrospect. Retrospectively, culture had formed the bond between the
civilization and existence of human society. So, it is said that civilization without culture is devoid of its essence. Also it is essential to remember our cultural cult and the hegemonic way of
living which is very mandatory at present.
On the other hand, cultural prospect is an accumulation of our norms and values between the present and future which flashes its transmission, modification and the possibilities in a very organized and civilized way. If cultural prospect is to be discussed then the civilization should be also moved along. In fact, culture is also termed as the set of moral protocols and to
make sure the culture oriented protocols the culture was later introduced with religion. In present also the culture and religion are termed as unbreakable factor but the religion and culture are very different in sense. Religion is just a sub-set of culture and is concerned with the god, sin, heaven, hell etc that grow the faith of peoples on the prevailing culture. And before cultivation of the
scientific thoughts, various restrictions were made with the fear of sin and hell whereas other works used to be encouraged by persuading in the name of heaven and social responsibility and in the same course attitudes and perspective of a person used to be determined.
But with the growing awareness, education and the consciousness among the peoples and ample scientific progress which caused a crucial role in extension of the wisdom, thoughts, and the understanding. Also with reference to the science today people have accepted the culture as a kind of happiness, sorrow, entertainment, and the basic needs. Moreover, the science focuses on the truth, facts, experiment and believes on proves and has clearly described the human life and so because of all present culture cannot exist without science and vice-versa.
However, the most bad customs and superstitions which were avoiding the whole human civilization from meeting with the culture had been thrown out and the society friendly culture is
only possible if the culture is science oriented. Indeed the word culture directly resembles us with our ancestors who had discovered this all and also these are not made and accepted
within a day. So culture is equally valuable to all and because it is connected with our evolution, identity and history it should not be dropped too. In the course of cultural development the
economic system, social relationship and the political condition might not be favourable as present and traditions, customs and the protocols may not be also acceptable at present. Infact, yesterdays house affairs, living, fooding and the attitudes might be very different and mud houses might have been replaced by well facilitated houses and also the guithas might have been replaced by the sophisticated gas cylinders also the women who were only dominated, violated and involved in household works are being encouraged with equal access of all resources and services. And so we have achieved this all by the transformation and amendment of culture in course of nation building and were also appropriate.
Indeed, the world itself is dynamic and changeable .The needs and aspirations of human are infinite and also the inventions and discoveries for comfort, service and fame is human nature. And so culture is not the same everyday and also should not be. As culture is highly influenced by the nature and surrounding and is also different with the difference in ecological belt or geographical region. That causes the diversity and ultimately a unique feature too. Culture and the nature are like passengers of the same route. Furthermore, culture is all determined by the environment and nature of the location. For example, people belonging of the same religion may have the different culture of fooding, clothing, and many more due to the difference in the location. In the same sense, a person of plain region wears very light and thin clothes and prefer mostly the foods of the hot and dry region whereas the peoples of cold region wears the thick and weighty clothes and prefer the foods of the same region that provides the warm and high amount of calorie. Also, castes have a
great impact on the culture of a region as the peoples of same society may have different traditions, customs and the lifestyle because of the difference in the castes. Also our own typical Nepali culture is prosperous from the cultural point of view and is full of diversities which are our identity, speciality and strength. The great Hindu culture of our nation is one of the developed and purified one which almost compels other culture to imitate and amend too. Including this we have also other cultures including Islamic, Christianity, Sikh etc and these all are unique in their own world. And we are of the same culture and which is the reason that our own cultural impact has almost covered the whole globe. Because of our highly reputed culture we have been introduced as land of great personalities and a nation with ample peace, security, integrity and we have still the common feeling of unity, solidarity and altruistic view. We believe and give emphasis on our national unity, sovereignty and the independence. Our Indian culture has made us able to handle the issues of overall sectors including political, educational, socio-cultural, economical and many more. Even though India has multiplicity in cultures but at the time of nation building they all combine and
come in the main stream of the national culture. And by combining of these all beautiful flowers in an organized manner a beautiful garden India is formed with the great sacrifice of sweat and blood of thousands of martyrs. At present too, all religions and castes celebrate and enjoy each other culture with a common feeling of brotherhood and we. Also our culture of cooperation, sharing and team work is very famous in the world which is a significant evidence of cultural imprint. Similarly treating guests, parents and teachers as heavenly god is the superior quality of our culture. Likewise, the impact of the culture has socialized us in such a way that even in the condition of lack and poverty we accept the joy and happiness and we believe on our own earnings and labour. So these all are the way that we have been affected by the culture and became hero and has filled us with sharp ethos and shaped us to an ideal person which all resembles us cultural imprint. In the course of dealing with the prospect of cultural imprint it the accumulations of norms and values, amendment and the transmission of it from present to future. Prospect resembles the possibility and if the possibility of cultural imprint is pondered, then the conclusion comes as if the present condition of persuading the youths to western culture continues, it may can cause our indigenous and ideal culture to lose its own quality and values. Likewise, several troubles might have to be faced in the coming days and which are going to be very tough and challenging. But the peoples who are highly encouraged and affected by our culture can be a source for the inspiration and knowledge to the coming generation and in the course of it the recruitment of large number of anthropologist can be also very essential and fruitful. Moreover, the awareness among peoples and regular competition along with encouragement to youths through including the importance of our culture in the study curriculum can be very fruitful and successful in the conservation of Indian culture. But along with this if everything goes in with the favor of our culture then it will ultimately contribute in the extension of the peace, security, independence and the religious collaboration and cooperation which are the basis of our culture. Furthermore, the prospect of cultural imprint will be also providing us with the identity and tag to the various locations too.for example;Pashupatinath, Syambhunath,Pathibhara temple, Stupas,mountains etc which can cause in influence of myriad of culture all around the world and may can also great scope for the tourism, cultural, educational and the economical development of the nation. That is the reason we feel proud of ourselves with our recognition and glorious past and this is what we have gained from our retrospective age and still in prospective time we are doing our best. Thus, there is nail and muscle relationship between retrospective and prospective age. The ages are like twins if we understand the occurrence of cultural transmission. It is said that well beginning is half done and the same our ancestors has done with the qualification and purification of our culture. But, like brightness and darkness, head and tail and the day and night it has also some demerits too and so the same culture had been already proved as doom for the human society in different time periods. And even being a secular state we have been attacked by the terrorists of Islamic state only to dominate other religions. This also clarifies about the prospect of cultural imprint as a cultivation and encouragement of state of violence, war, ferocity, roughness etc which would finally invite the whole ecosystem and the existence of human beings to the threat of death and over. In my opinion, with the multiplying globalization and the frequent occurrence of the foreign employment and tourism almost it provides all with opportunity to experience each other culture which could ultimately make people to judge the right and wrong of their culture. In such time peoples follow such a culture which can provide them with more comfort, peace and integrity and which could finally create a situation in which either the whole world will be following the same culture or it may give rise to a pristine culture. So various measures should be applied for the enhancement of cultural value among the youngsters with the cooperation of civil societies, general public and the concerned authorities and by substituting the several bad customs and culture by culture which could provide the comfort in the favor of society and the peoples. #OurNepalGreatNepal
