BASICS IN HUMANITIESA DIALOGUE ON CIVILIZATION1.What do we mean by civilization?ANS:Civilization means advanced stage or system of socialdevelopment. A state of human society that is very developed andorganized. A society’s its culture and its way of life during a particular  period of time or in a particular part of the world. A modern placeoffers us comfortable way of life of a modern society.2.What are the limitations of material comfort?ANS:The limitations of material comfort are to exhaust. We lose oustamina and getting tired. Material comfort is last only for a short time because people exhaust them.

Beautiful things are live and this is to say people on like themin all ages.
5.What is the relation between civilization and material achievements?ANS:In my view, there is no relationship between civilization andmaterial achievements. One differs from other in many ways.Material achievements mean just being splendid and grand andliving in luxury. It includes splendid things, palaces and silks, jewels,scents and magnificent clothes, wonderful carpets, lovely things to eatand drink and slaves to wait on them. But on the other hand getting or achieving all these things are not the sign of being civilized. To be acivilized person or nation one has to adopt advanced stage or systemof social development. A state of human society that is very developedand organized. A society’s its culture and its way of life during a particular period of time or in a particular part of the world. A modern place offers us comfortable way of life of a modern society.So from the above discussion it is clear that there is no relationship between these two.SHORT NOTE:
