Abstract: It is not just the evaluation of other cultures according to preconceptions originating in the standards and customs of one's own culture but also defines one’s mental construct formed by the environment, which is reflected by the culture that one is living in. When colonial administrators, missionaries, and travellers were visiting the non-western world, they encountered the local communities and tried writing about “other cultures” because they were attracted by the cultural differences which were witnessing. These differences were understood in terms of a sense of inferiority and all their writings reflect their cultural hegemony. They tried to establish cultural superiority by adopting several intellectual strategies to study these communities. For instance, a study of youth dormitories brought out the presence of pre-marital sex and sexual laxity, which in turn brought out the loose sexual idea as opposed to the Christian idea of monogamy.
