An abstract is required. 31 May, What is beauty and more importantly, what is the use of beauty and culture? Beauty is all what appears, sounds and feels good to the senses. Beauty is not something that can be touched or tasted. It is an abstract noun. What is funny about beauty is that it may not be felt by every individual. That is why beauty is said to be in the beholder’s eyes. This is not just an adage. In fact, it is a whole ideology which says that beauty originates in the perception of the individual appreciating a certain thing. The thing may not necessarily be beautiful, but the individual’s point of view is indeed, beautiful! On the other hand, culture is the general way of living of a nation which signifies its trends, traditions, norms, values, moral standards, ethics and common practices. Culture of a nation is essentially its identity. Different nations are identified by their individualistic cultures. Like the difference of their meanings, beauty and culture both have their own individualistic uses. It is hard to identify particular uses of beauty since it is required in everything. It is used everywhere. Crockery is made beautiful to increase its market value. Makeup is worn to look beautiful and presentable so that a woman can work. The fundamental use of culture is that it lends identity to the people who belong to that culture. Culture is used to benchmark ethical standards which can be used to compare an individual’s performance against. Owing to their common identity ingrained in their culture, people of one nation become united and a strong force.
