We reached my friend’s house three hours later and were welcomed by her and her husband. Their friends were just stepping out for a break. We sat down to a warm, nutritious, elaborate and mildly exotic meal and pleasant conversation. In no time, their friends were back and a lively discussion on world history and European prejudices began. Then we began to play a game similar to Taboo, called Million Dollar Password
This is one of the problems of Globalisation, or should I say, Westernisation, and the prevalent Euro/Ameico-centric worldview. We ought to be able, in 2012(!) to relate to more than this worldview. Gobalisation should result in a sharing and celebration of knowledge, diversity of culture and all possible frames of references and defies the current linierity of influence.
