[shc_shortcode class=”shc_mybox”]Today, with the passage of time each and every country is on the path of development, and
with this development there is a growing trend of visiting different places in different
countries. It is a highly debated issue whether immigrants should do and behave as the
people of the host country or should they stick to their traditional lifestyle and live as a
separate minority. It is necessary to look into pros and cons of both situations before
forming an opinion.

There are many benefits of adopting host countries customs. Firstly, it decreases chances of
misunderstanding and embarrassment. For e.g. in the UK it is offensive to ask about pay to
anyone, which is common in India. Secondly, a nation’s customs and traditions are
fascinating and offer a deep insight into that country. People move to other countries to
broaden their horizon. So, if immigrants copy the customs of host country, they learn more
about them and that too in an interesting way. Finally, visitors establish a rapport with local
people because people feel respected when their customs are understood and imitated.
They become a member of the host country and so they don’t suffer any culture shock.

On the other hand there are many advantages of making a minority group. If a person is
from a country with strong and old traditions, it will be difficult for him to adapt to the new
customs. He can’t break the old customs such as food habits and wearing certain types of
clothes. In such cases if he retains his old customs and lives with his own community as a
separate minority, he won’t suffer from homesickness.

On balance, I feel that someone who is moving to another country should respect the
customs, culture, traditions etc. of that country. This is necessary because a newcomer is
like a guest in someone else’s home. So he is expected to follow the rules of that country.
However, it should not be obligatory for him to follow those customs and change himself
altogether. As time passes and he gets to know the hosts better then he can decide if he
wants to adopt any custom or stick to his own. After all being a cosmopolitan is the need of
the hour.

To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that, mutual understanding between both the
visitor and the host is necessary to maintain harmony. A cosmopolitan society in which
everyone is tolerant of each other’s customs and traditions is the need of the day. After all,
today, we are part of a small global village and not a big planet Earth. Some people think that people moving to a new country should accept
