sanmks Posted July 6, 2015 Share Posted July 6, 2015 Please review my first incomplete essay on the following topic Claim: Governments must ensure that their major cities receive the financial support they need in order to thrive. Reason: It is primarily in cities that a nation's cultural traditions are preserved and generated. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim and the reason on which that claim is based. Will financially supporting the major cities help in the preservation of a nation's cultural tradition is a question one needs to ask these days. Is it only in the cities that a nation's culture prospers is another question which should be on everyone's mind. The nation not only contains cities but it is an amalgamation of cities, towns, villages & forests. Throught the inclusive growth of both the rural & urban areas can one nation really prosper. As compared to cities which are exposed to the globalisation of all sorts in terms of fashion and culture, the villages or the rural areas are where the true national cultures prosper. In the villages the national culture face no opposition from the external global cultures and enjoys a monopoly of sort. The cosmopolitan nature of city folks takes them further away from their own national culture sometimes. The village folk on the other hand being parochial seem to hold on to their beliefs more strongly. Though the village folks can sometimes be orthodox and hidebound they are are better protectors of the national culture than their contemporary urban folks.
