Sharp differences can easily be spotted between literacy based societies and societies that have more of verbal narratives and oral traditions. These differences construct the social mindset of individuals in these societies thereby concluding a positive or negative image. One can divide the polity in two parts with a distinction that is visible in the daily routine conversations ranging from political issues to social life problems of its local communities. Events can be seen as intrinsically linked with proverbs used that illustrate some specific meaning for any gender, issue or joke.
South Asia mostly underdeveloped and its polity with oral traditions more commonly trusted and quoted; has a stereotype political setup with a culture where conversation does not aims at settling disputes or introducing suggestions and strategies resulting in relief, improvement or construction but rather use it as an instrument to give an impression of this kind.
An important reason for this centuries passed drawback is not only its cultural heritage and history that can be seen in the proverbs used in routine lives, but is the standard of education. Societies that are literacy based use written text as an immediate and primary source of logic and reason but the others that have been living with oral traditions, proverbs narrated since generations and sayings consider them as an undoubted important source of conversation. For them the logic and reason is there and thus they do not need any further yardsticks or instrument to judge an issue or reach a conclusion.
