A cultural encounter is the interaction of one or more culture with another culture. Culture encounter is not only a condition related to nationality or ethnicity, but it could also be an interaction between two members of any two groups with different norms, such as children and adults, or men and women. The interactions of people from different cultures require the understanding and respect of people’s beliefs, the way they live life and to discover new things about their world and cultures. However, culture encounter could result in some conflicts, for example, the difference between cultures and how it could be hard to adapt to a new culture. It could also result in racism and fundamentalism. These kinds of conflicts happened in the short story ‘One Out of Many’ by the famous writer Sir Vidiadhar Surajprased Naipaul.
