ETHNOGRAPHYEthnography is a scientific descriptions, recording and analysis of people’s culture thatundertaken by the researcher through observation and fieldwork (Low, 2016).It aims at exploringthe characteristics of people cultureandsociety. It is mainly based on the observation of theparticipants which is recorded in a written document so as to observe their culture(Silverman,2016).

Moreover, all the local newspapers & number of magazines werealso available in the library.
