|Title: ||The Role of tolerance in Indian culture A Study|
|Researcher: ||Anbazhagan, R.|
|Registration Date: ||July 2007|
|Abstract: ||To tolerate is to bear with patience the existence of others. It is to put up with the
newlineviews and actions of other people. It consists in permitting other persons to express their
newlineviews freely and implement them into activity. Tolerance is essentially a state of mind.
newlineFor these is the positive action of non- interference in activity of other persons.
newlineToleration is not in that sense possible among birds and animals. Tolerance can be
newlinebetween one person and another person, as between husband and wife, mother and child
newlineamong friends. It may be between one individual and group, group and another group,
newlinecommunity and community, race and race class and class. There can be toleration in
newlinereligion-oriented culture; at the same time it is possible for toleration to prevail in entirely
newlinesecular culture. This shows that religion and culture is quire distinct.|
