Being proud in the culture and traditions of our country is good and normal. When you take a trip to another country, do you feel proud when you talk about your nationality? But some people think of patriotism as a social problem. Some consider patriotism as a way to be proud of the culture of their country. Other people consider patriotism as the "result of arrogance, conceit and egotism," which can cause bad relations in all aspects. What you think about that?

Starting tomorrow Muslims across the world will begin fasting during the month of Ramadan. Being a British Muslim, I am often faced with questions like "Why do you fast?" or "What is Ramadan?" I believe it is important for us all to be aware of different cultures and religions so I thought I'd share a little bit of Ramadan with you all. Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar and it was in this month that the Qur'an was revealed to the prophet Muhammad. Musli...

My heart is bleeding for Maasai girls Yesterday marked the first day of the 2014 World Cup and at around 2100hrs EAT the majority of the people around the world were glued to their electronic devices following the opening ceremony. Being an ardent lover of news bulletins I flipped the channels to catch up with the latest happenings around the world during the prime time news. The top story of the day happened to be on the country’s budget, but it didn’t catch my attention as...

The nature of human freedom refers to freedom from all societal structures and that which is in conformity to the general way of life that’s universally accepted.

Every human being has rights and these rights should not be violated in whichever way whatsoever. Consequently, these rights come with responsibilities. Hence ev...

They aren't too many people who identify as LGBT in Nigeria. But we have been able to parry the disparities we have. Life and the circumstances it dictates has curbed the desire of man to either appreciate or pulverize its contributions. Many a time, I have tried to understand why there's no equality between youths of different sexual orientation and society. Some say, these youths have violated the laws of nature and existence but from what I have figured out, it's bluntly a choice. With choice...

As a young man who is passionate about history and culture, I try to explore all Indonesian cultures. Although Indonesia has diverse cultures, I don’t stop my to understanding the details of some of the wonderful cultures. My unforgettable experience on watching Perang Obor or the war of the torch, I was impressed by how dangerous this culture is still allowed to be conducted. This tradition is from the Jepara Municipality, Central Java. It was very harmful because the war used a torch to dry...

Our fathers taught us the culture and how it relates to nature, with ancient pictures, they explained it all with pleasure. In fact it was more than a treasure. The culture featured investment structures such as mental, family, spiritual, health, business, relationships and moral fixtures. But then, it was still immature and they told us that it will soon mature for it is our future. That future, for some of us now, it is torture…no innovations, no SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Real...
