Dear PA,
Good afternoon.
This is the age of globalization. The world is a single stage now. We are all getting closer to each other in many ways.

I believe that our culture has good sides and a few bad sides too. It depends on educating our countrymen. Once they become educated they will value better sides of our culture.

We can adopt some forign culture nothing wrong if it does not heart our seniors. I think our values have link with our culture.
