My understanding of the inquiry questions
Understanding from factual
A custom is an activities that is followed by different people from different culture, these customs affect people in their day to day life, customs define religion and a culture and play a big part in it. Traditions are similar to customs and are rituals followed by people. they differ from culture to culture. All cultures have been passed down, and all these cultures demostrate history of India in different parts. we can see this culture in from of different monuments and artefacts, for example Taj Mahal has carvings around and in it which are inscriptions like pictures and writings from which we can see the history of India. We can preserve our culture by passing it down and celebrating it freely and knowing the history and importance behind it

My connection to the GC and the specific exploration is, that different aspects such as arts music and creation will help a person understand about how their culture was and is, also predict how it will be in the future. The specific exploration also helps us to appreciate art,music,dance and other things along with their culture
