Living in a community where there are people of various races is a rewarding and an exciting experience. Living in such a community is like a small world with many types and races in it.
Everyone, young or old, enjoys listening to stories about the people of other lands. We read books and newspapers to learn about the habits, cultures and beliefs of people who are not belong to our race but when we live in a community composed many races, we have the opportunity to meet and talk with people of various races. We can learn about the customs and beliefs directly from them. In this way, we have a better understanding about their ways of life. For examples, in Singapore and Malaysia, which are known as multiracial countries, Malays, Chinese, Indians and others have lived together for several decades. They have learnt a lot about the cultures and beliefs of one another more than what we can learn by reading books and newspapers. They have also absorbed the habits of one another to their benefits.
Further, living in a multiracial community teaches us how to respect the views and beliefs of other races. We learn to be tolerant, to understand and appreciate the peculiarity of those who are not belong to our race. We learn how to live in peace and harmony with foreigners whose ways of life are different from ours in several respects. We become less suspicious of the strangers and foreigners.
The relationship that develops among the people from the common understanding in a multiracial community makes life in such a community is very exciting. Any celebration of any race becomes a celebration of all of other races. Thus, there is a lot of fun and excitement in during every celebration. In this way, better understanding is promoted among the people in the world. Through each of races of the people in a multiracial community, we come to know about their respective countries. For examples, through Chineses and Indians in Malaysia or Singapore, we have come to know much about China and India. As a result, we have a better understanding of the peoples of China and India as a whole.
It could therefore be said that life in a multiracial community teaches us many useful lessons about the human relations.
