Describe an invention that has changed how people live cue card

Culture can be defined as a set of beliefs, attitudes, values, morals, goals, customs and traditions that define a group of people. 

Every region has its own culture and tradition but here I would like to talk about an interesting foreign culture from which I learned one thing. 

Actually, in my childhood, I had never listened to friendship day but as we live in a globalised era, we have become more familiar with foreign cultures. 

I came to know about friendship day when I was pursuing my bachelor's/higer secondary. 

In our college/school, during the cultural exchange program, one student came from United Nations, and he explained about friendship day. 

International Friendship Day is celebrated annually on July 30.

He told a lot of things about it like

It was founded to promote friendship and fellowship among humankind, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, or religion.  

There is no holiday on this day instead of it this day is celebrated by friends exchanging greeting cards and gifts, and spending quality time with their best friends, some even make friendship bands and tie them on their friends’ wrists. 

These things I found more interesting because I have a few friends who are very close to my heart. 

After listening to this, I planned to celebrate that day with my friends. 

I think it is the best way to express our feelings. 

Friendship also removes discrimination and allows us to become more kind towards others. ,

Firstly, this day was celebrated in the United Nations but now it is celebrated all over the world. 

I learned so many things like friends are an inseparable part of our life and without them, life would be dull. 

We all must make friends and create a strong bond with them.

So this is a foreign culture that teaches me a lot of things.


1. Describe another traditional product from your country (apart from what you spoke about)

India is a diverse country. There are many traditional products in India. We have earthen pots,

ceramic pottery of Jaipur, puppets of Rajasthan, phulkari embroidery of Punjab, hand-knotted

carpets of Srinagar and many more.

2. What are the benefits of traditional products to locals?

Traditional products keep the locals in touch with their culture and tradition. They also become a

source of earning, when tourists show interest in these products and buy them.

3. Do you think the government should help in the promotion of traditional products?

Definitely, it should. If governments promotes traditional products, only then these will remain

alive, otherwise these products will die and so will our culture and tradition.

4. Do you think because of globalization countries are adopting each other traditions.

Yes, as countries know about these traditions, they adopt them. In a way it is good. Diwali is

celebrated by many people outside India also. We have also started celebrating Valentine’s Day,

Grandparents’ Day, Father’s Day and Mother’s Day etc

5. Why people buy traditional products because of their traditional value or because of they

are handmade.

People buy these products for both these reasons. Handmade things have their own charm and

only handmade thinks can have the real traditional value. When things are made in bulk using

machines, then the whole traditional value of the thing is lost.

6. Did the traditional things of the past have more value than the present things?

Yes, of course. We must remember that the things we consider new and modern today will become

traditions for the future. So, the traditional things of the past were different and as time passes

those things become antiques and so become more valuable.

7. Did the traditional things of the past have better quality than the present things?

Not necessarily. The things made today also have good quality. Actually, it depends on the person

making those things. There have always been good craftsmen and bad craftsmen.

8. Is it necessary to protect traditions?

Yes, of course. Traditions are our roots. They bind us to our past. Without traditions we would feel

cut off from our past.

9. Do you think teenagers should learn about traditions?

Yes, they should be taught. Otherwise, they will feel cut off from the past. As it is, the teenagers of

today are being lured by the global culture and are drifting away from traditions
