Culture develops in the light of education and civilization. But in the hours of satellite cultures we are facing two phases of cultures known as the eastern and the western cultures. The eastern culture is old , ancient, obsolete and outdated but the western culture is modern upto date and fashionable. So great differences remain between the two cultures.
