General: Imagine that you are going on a four-day trip to India with a friend and neither of you is familiar with it. You are going to write a travel journal about this trip, specifically about the ‘tossing babies’ ritual in Karnataka, India. The stories should explain how each person reacts to the new culture(referring to you own attitudes, values and beliefs). You have to conduct research to make sure you understand the customs.
By writing this, you are essentially answering these questions:
Explore what “culture shock” is and how people from different cultures react when they encounter new cultures? Do all people experience new places in the same way, or are there differences in the way people might behave in new places they visit? How does the country and culture one comes from affect the way that person will behave in a new country?
