Practically, theft or murder taking place near by need not affect us as well so long as the culprits pose no problems to us.

'Culture' is more or less what a group of people who got together decided the way they would live. Basically we have aryan culture (North India) when people migrated from somewhere near Indonasia and Dravidian culture (South India). Agree, we have many differences but as Asians we have some similarities.

Neither of these cultures support premarital sex. but those who want to be independant continue to do so. Honour killing makes no sense to me either but as humanbeings I would like to have as much or more principles as birds and some other animals do at least. It amounts to basic respect of the human body,dead or alive and commitment to such an extent that children and other relatives are not affected more than necessary.

You say that others should not ask. But many relatives have brought back straying children to the right path. Children who were angry with their parents and went wrong paths in anger. Drugs, drinks and now say temporary boy/girlfriends who would ultimately bring bitterness. Afterall we have divorce for those who are totally incompatible.

After all even in the west we have the story of David Copperfield where an aunt looks after a nephew. So also in Tom Saywer, the aunt looks after naughty Tom. She could have been much more peaceful if she followed your principle of non interference.
But where goes humanity then? What have we achieved after gaining everything?
