Throughout time, literature has had the power to connect readers around the world by providing them with insight into different cultures. Readers may come together by analyzing different texts and how they represent different backgrounds and give readers from a different culture a new perspective. Matsuo Bashō, a haikai master, provided readers with an insight into Japanese culture by depicting his travels around Japan in his work “The Narrow Road to the Deep North”. In the text, Bashō depicts his journey with the use of prose and haiku. Most importantly, Bashō educates readers by demonstrating the Japanese culture’s value for impermanence, the idea that time is transient.
Aesthetics A key cultural aspect of the Japanese is their immense appreciation for aesthetics, one of which being mono no aware – a term coined by Japanese scholar Motoori Norinaga in the eighteenth century. It conveys the fleeting beauty in the transience of life through an experience that cannot be pinned down by a single moment or image. This kind of beauty creates an ineffable experience for audiences. Furthermore, according to Kishimoto (1956), “religious values and aesthetics values are not two different things” for the Japanese. In Suzu no Shizuku, when Kaya was conceived and when she was assimilated into the mountain, there were bell-like sounds, which made Yoshirou feel a pang in his heart.
The theme was my friendship with these people of other faiths, and how much I learned about my own religion from them. I spoke of how much it hurt me when they were teased, and explained how much it lacked even common sense, still less the higher-order thinking skills our teacher was always talking about. I could not have my friends in the class during a business day, but I had the sense to tape my presentation which, almost for the first time, went well for
Eventually, of all the abroad study countries, such as UK, Australia, New Zealand and all, the education system of USA attracted me most for it is the leader in many areas of technology and research.

I am honored to be eligible amongst the meritorious students who are being considered for induction within the National Honors Society. Being an active member in this society has been something I have been looking forward to since middle school; having previous family members inducted, I regard it as a goal I must accomplish. I would be honored to be a member of this society which is known for benefitting children, the elderly, and the needy .These limitless opportunities of contributing to my community will help me grow as a person which will undoubtedly help me in my future career as oncologist and leave an impact on my fellow community members.

And thirdly, I have heard great praise of not only the engineering program and Bourn’s school, but the University as a whole from both my colleagues, a handful of friends with family are currently attending or graduated, and my high school advisors. Overall, I look forward to attending UCR, as it appears to be the best option in every category I have set out for the colleges I have applied to. I see large amounts of potential in UCR helping me attain my goals; it is the reason I am looking to attend after all. Let me explain: I have always loved building and creating things. It is my longest lasting and favorite hobby to turn to when I have little to do.
India is a nation that is known all around for it’s unique cultural and heritage and it is one of the few nations to be so diverse in culture yet so united in its people. I as a citizen of India, am extremely proud to uphold our traditional and cultural value and represent our prosperous nation in countries all around the world. Rabindranath Tagore has been a philosopher I have looked up to ever since I was a child and his philosophies on life and education have inspired me to live a life that I will be proud of. Tagore is a founder of our nation and he harnessed the Indian power during our freedom struggle and funneled them, along with Mahatma Gandhi, to achieve the ultimate right of freedom. Tagore has shaped the modern Indian through his philosophy on teaching and I, like many other young Indians, have benefited from his teachings and plan to carry and teach his philosophies and ideals to the generations to come.
It shows a good view of life despite the trials and display of true love. Performers of this movie, Empoy and Alexandra, also perform well on their respective roles. When it comes to the mood of the movie, most of the time, funny and at the same time crying, and because of this it gets the attention of the viewers. When it comes to setting, i think it is unique because it is not common for us as a Filipino, and because of that we learn some background about different places in Japan. When it comes to the weaknesses of the movie, I noticed that only four people in the movie and all the stories are focused on Lea and Tonyo.
As my personality is the outcome of social life I have. I have grown every day and have learned a lot not only from my culture but also from the interaction of people from different cultures i.e. from my immediate daily environment (Boon, Cottrell, King, Stevenson, & & Millar, 2012). My microsystem has greatly influenced me. My friends, my school, my college and my family have intrigued the love for culture and above all the love for humanity.
To do so, I had to identify my strong suits, as well as my weakest links and ponder on ways I can overcome those and grow. STRENGHTS: Firstly, I have always been good at academics having graduated from high school with high honors, as I am always eager for new knowledge and willing to work hard to achieve my goals. Additionally, I hold certificates to two foreign languages, while being a fair writer in all three languages. But what I really consider as strengths are my personal attributes such as my honesty, my endless creativity and thirst for knowledge. As mentioned earlier, my participation in debate and MUN tournaments have helped me obtain complementary skills as organization, critical thinking and knowing how to act in a professional/serious
