United Kingdom’s Migrants’ Cultural Stories
By: Rhythm Sachdeva, ACJ, India
Coventry is one State where people from all over the world come and stay. Reasons may differ from work to family.
People from different ethnicity and communities give birth to a new set of cultures in an alien country, in an effort to preserve beliefs and cultures of their origin.
As Max Weber has described, ‘Culture’ is a finite segment of the meaningless infinity of the world process, a segment on which human beings confer meaning and significance’. Culture keeps a person rooted to his place of origin. Traditions which are preserved and practised in the new environment, often gives birth to new cultures.
These are the stories of some migrants who continue to live in a foreign country with the memory of their home land. These stories will give you a peek sneak into the lives of different cultural groups living in Coventry.
