Hyderabad has always been a melting pot of cultures and traditions.
We had selected the Sun city area of Hyderabad for our study in which we interviewed 72 respondents belonging to various age groups.
Through the medium of Google forms as well as through personal interviews we have collected the data for our study.
Our questionnaire included the age and sex of the respondent, size of the family, their regional influence in food habits (food), the variations in selection of fashion apparel (clothing) within the same household, cultural traditions highlighted through festivities (festivals and daily rituals).
Some questions related to religious rituals we asked were:
- How likely are you to follow daily rituals?
- How likely are you to take part in regional festivals which are different from your traditional festivals?
- How likely are you to participate in Halloween or any other global festivals?
We have used the Likert scale method options i.e. a) Yes b) No c) Maybe ; through which we assessed our findings through graphs and pie charts.
The conclusion we derived were as follows:
People belonging to the above 60 age group followed their traditional festivals and had very less influence of western culture on them.
The people of the 21-59 age group were partially influenced by Western Culture but also followed their traditions.
The people below the 20 age group participated more in the global festivals like Halloween and were more likely to follow global trends (i.e K -pop, Korean cuisine, K- drama).
