Culture, taken in its wide sense is, ‘the way of life for an entire society’ and includes distinctive material, spiritual, intellectual and emotional features, art and literature, lifestyles, ways of living together, value systems and traditions inherited by man or woman as a member of society.
Large societies often have subcultures, or groups of people with distinct sets of behavior and beliefs that differentiate them from a larger culture of which they are a part. The minorities can have an identity of their own, but they should support the core concepts of the culture on which the society is based.
Culture is dynamic and changes over time. In doing so, cultures absorb external influences and adjust to changing environments.
