Is culture static or dynamic?
Would you define culture as something which remains the same or is constantly changing? Give your unique perspective in this forum thread.
"This is our culture." This sentence was used in one of the responses by one of our members. This made me think, what is culture? Is culture static or dynamic? While some traditions are followed as it is and some traditions changed over a period of time, the doubt arose whether they are static or dynamic. From what we see some or static and some are dynamic. The examples of static customs are banning women of certain age group from entry to Sabarimala temple, the conduct of Jallikattu etc. against the orders of the Supreme Court. The dynamic changes that took place are appointing of persons of SC and ST as priests in the temples. These are about temples only. In many other aspects, there is a sea of changes in the culture of the social groups. What is the reason for certain traditions to remain static while the others are dynamic? Is it the mindset of people with some prejudices?
