My Culture + Your Culture = Pooja to Party

By Laxmi Giri

The video above is one of the videos for "ExchangesConnect Online Video Contest" by Nepalese youths. Anyone can upload a 3-minute video about what "My Culture + Your Culture" means to you for a chance to win an international exchange program! The contest opened on December 1, 2008 and ends on January 26, 2009.

This contest is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in partnership with Adobe Youth Voices.

Good thing is Nepalese guys are participating on it. They have carefully selected the subject so that they can express the flexibility the Nepalese society to appreciate other cultures. One lady Professor of Culture in Tribhuvan University does Hindu Pooja and one day she participates in Christmas party. This shows harmony among people with different religions in Nepal. In Nepal majority people are Hindu with Muslims, Christians and Buddhists as minors. World is amazing with diverse culture and religions.

My culture plus your culture= understanding and respect to each other.
