Consider the videos and articles you have just digested. Each culture has distinct characteristics, and yet there are similarities as well. Write a brief posting (250 – 350 words) in which you discuss one difference and one similarity in the treatment of religion in the play Raja Edepus from Indonesia and Kutiyattam: Sanskrit Theatre from India. What is common ground and what is different?
