We know that the human nature is the same for all the people on the earth. They eat, sleep, find joy and sorrow, grow old and die. These are the basics of our life and they are the same for all of us.. Yet we would be wary and cautious while dealing with a stranger. We try to guess his hidden intentions, find out his tactics used for taking advantage of us. As for people living in far away places,in other countries we are almost in the dark about their ordinary daily lives. It is not likely to be much different from ours but we assume that it must be quite queer and strange. I am referring to those people who have not travelled much or mingled with people from a different race or country. Now a days the world has grown smaller and people travel all over the world for thier studies, jobs,sight seeing ect. It is a good thing. The more you know other people the more love you grow within yourself and around. There must be more of places where people from every part of the people can come together like universities, common platforms to share ideas and opinions,etc. A culture is best known in the villages I think. It would be a good idea to go to a village and stay with some villagers family while one visits a foreign country. City life is a busy one and almost same in every city around the world. International marriages will go long way in promoting the idea of one world one race ie; the human race. A world government may take time to materialise . May be it will never be materialised. But if it ever happens ,this feeling of oneness of humans must precede it. The first step and the most important one in this direction, is to move out of one enclosure and meet other people. Some time must be found to travel far and wide , as faf as you can go , and come to know people ,on a person to person basis. That will dispel prejudices inherent in us and we will be surprised to find how similar and identical the other man is to you, in his thoughts,ideals, goals,tastes etc.though is dress,food,language,appearance are different.

Well, people distance themselves from strangers for their own safety. I wouldn't worry if someone thought of me as a bad guy. I'd understand and am ready to prove them wrong anytime. You can't blame people for being defensive. It's only for their protection.
