&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp. Culture, “the learned and shared behavior of a community of human beings” (Useem &Useem 169) is learned through the process of socialization and human society passes it over to the next generation “independently of its biological genes” (Parson 8). Culture upholds, identifies, and defines the cognitive abilities in a person and distinguishes him or her from another person from a different cultural background. Some thinkers define it as the “primary adaptive mechanism” of a community that gets reflected in the “day-to-day living patterns” of its individuals, pervading “all aspects of human social interaction” (Damen 367). Kluckhohn and Kelly (1945) opine that culture is a potential guide, consisting of historically created designs for living, involving explicit and implicit as well as rational, irrational, and non-rational human behavior.
