In the context of national cultural values, comment on an excerpt from the story of S. Maugham “The Dream”.
"We soon got into conversation. The Russian spoke good and fluent English… I do not know whether it was the vodka or the natural loquaciousness of his race that made him communicative, but presently he told me, unasked, a good deal about himself…
'Are you married?? he asked.
I did not see what business it was of his, but I told him that I was."
