ABSTRACT
Historically, the Philippines and India have both been under the colonial rule of European powers for more than 300 years. Geographically, both are situated in the Northern hemisphere in Asia. About 80 per cent of the Indian population depend on agriculture and live in villages. In India, the majority of the population are Hindus, while in the Philippines, most of the people are Catholics. The Philippines, being a Catholic country and having been tinder Spanish and American cultural influence, has assimilated much of western culture whereas, India still retains the same old religion with some assimilation of Muslim culture. One more point needs clarification. India is a vast country, about 2000 miles from north to south and 1850 from east to west. A number of studies on value systems have been done in the Philippines, the United States and India. India lives in villages and the physical and social structure of the village has great influence in shaping the value system of villagers.
