· Impacts of partition on Cultural heritage
v Culture: It is defined as; “the set of ideas, customs, social behavioral patterns or norms found in human societies”.
By Edward Burnett Tylor in his Primitive Culture (1871):
“Culture is that complex whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, morals, law, custom, and any other capabilities and habits acquired by man as a member of society”.
Some aspects of human behavior, social practices such as culture, expressive forms such as art, music, dance, ritual, and religion, and technologies such as tool usage, cooking, shelter, and clothing are said to be cultural universals, found in all human societies.
v Heritage: It is defined as; “something that is transmitted into generations or acquired from a predecessor”.
“In heritage all the qualities, traditions, or features of life that have continued over many years have been passed on from generation to generation”. ( https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/heritage )
v Cultural Heritage:
In “cultural heritage,” the heritage doesn’t mean the money or property, but culture, values and traditions. Thus it implies a shared bond, and belongingness to a community. It represent our history, our identity; our bond to our past, our present, and also to our future to some extent.
It is an expression of the ways of living developed and passed on to generations by a particular society or community. Thus it is the legacy or the attributes of a group or society that are inherited from previous generations, and maintained in the present conditions while also bestowed in future for the benefit of generation.
