COMPARISON OF EASTERN AND WESTERN CULTURE
posted by ilyas khanat 6:41 pm
There is a great difference
between the cultures of Europe
and Asia. Rudyard Kipling, the
well known English poet,
was struck by this difference
and expressed the view that the
two can never live together and
co-operate as equals. Let us
here
first
consider
the
salient features of the Eastern
and Western cultures, and then
examine how far the view expressed by Kipling in correct.
The East stands for spiritualism, the West
for materialism, people of the East care
more for the development of the soul and
for life after death than for the life in this
world and for physical comforts. The
Westerners, one the other hand, are worldly
minded. They do not care for any future
life, but want to enjoy their present life.
Hence, we find in the West a mad race for
wealth, luxury and comfort. The East has
been the birthplace of the great
religious teachers- Christ, Buddha, Gandhi,
etc were born, and it was here that they
lived and preached. The west, on the other
hand, is the home of modern science and
technology. Wonderful inventions have
been made. Man has acquired power over
nature and he is now capable of performing
miracles worthy of the gods.

The Eastern and the Western Temperaments too, are poles apart. The Easterners
are tolerant and self-sacrificing. They are peace-loving. They do not like to cause
the least harm to others. They can bear the greatest hardship for others, and can
sacrifice their own good for the common cause. Their social life is peaceful. As far
as possible they like to settle their differences through mutual agreement and
compromise. The Westerners, one the other hand, are quarrelsome and aggressive.
They cannot tolerate the views of others. They care more for their own good than
for the good of others. They are selfish and uncompromising.
No doubt, the Westerners
have greater means of
comfort and luxury, but all
their worldly wealth does
not bring them any greater
happiness. Their scientist
have
manufactured Atom Bomb
and the Hydrogen bomb
with which they can
destroy each other. They
live in constant fear of war
and
destruction.
The
satisfaction of one want
leads to another and so they are ever dissatisfied and miserable. The Easterners
believed in the limitation of wants and so they are happy in spite of their poverty.
They may not have the power over nature that the Westerners have but they have
the
power
of
soul.
