This paper approves thatb the curriculum can be made diverse by including content from different cultures depending upon which area a certain culture is more developed in or what a certain culture has more to offer in comparison to other cultures. From this standpoint, the subjects of science and technology can be based on Western knowledge since advanced economies are more advanced in the research and knowledge of science and technology as compared to the third world countries whereas the subjects of arts and craft, including performing arts can be based on the knowledge of South Asian cultures because they are relatively richer in these fields and have a lot to offer in these respects.
