I want readers to go to their computers and Google the country in question to learn fact from fiction and in the process of doing this learn something new about a people, a race and a country. We all inhabit the same world. Why can’t we learn and understand more about the people we live with?

Question: Is the city you live in culturally diverse? If so, how?

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
