The human outcomes between the two societies in Things Fall Apart influence the Umuofia individuals’ religion, agribusiness, and social culture.
The Umuofia have confidence in numerous divine beings; their divine beings incorporate Agbala, the Oracle of the Hills and Caves (settles question and tells the future) and Chi (individual god, judges work and achievement). The Umuofia individuals are devoted to their divine beings, won’t war without their assent and rely upon them for discipline. The novel “Things Fall Apart” by Chinua Achebe, features that colonization causes outcomes, for example, strife between societies that prompts demolition to their religion, farming, and social life.
With the landing of the ‘white’ man, and the ‘white’ man’s religion and culture comes the impact. The missionaries come to change over the general population, they put down the Umuofia’s religious conventions and emphatically ask them to relinquish their divine beings. This doesn’t run over well with the general population and struggle emerges. As missionaries arrive and attempt a mission of Christian salvation and colonization, Okonkwo’s child, Nwoye, is separated from his family by the preachers and their religion. He joins the Christians, receiving their religion and isolating himself from his family. “One morning Okonkwo’s cousin, Amikwu, was passing by the church on his way from the neighboring village, when he saw Nwoye among the Christians. He was greatly surprised, and when he got home he went straight to Okonkwo’s hut and told him what he had seen. The women began to talk excitedly, but Okonkwo sat unmoved” (Achebe 140).
At the point when Nwoye arrives home, Okonkwo lashes out at him and turns out to be extremely forceful. This is because of the conflict between two societies. This unforeseen development demonstrates a backhanded result of the contention explicitly made by the teachers that try to dismiss the Igbo from their customary religion a to disregard their divine beings. Another source of conflict came in the Umuofia economy. These individuals were farmers and relied upon agriculture for their survival. Everybody worked; men, ladies and youngsters. The planting of products (yams) was a fine art and had particular rules set by the history and experience of the general population.
Yams are a harvest developed only by men. Developing yams is hard, and the span of a man’s fields and reap says a ton in regards to his hard working attitude. Okonkwo gets his start at yam farming by approaching the wealthy Nwakibie for help. He could get seeds and began up his own particular homestead. “I have learned to be stingy with my yams. But I can trust you. Iknow it as I look at you.
As our fathers said, you can tell a ripe corn by its look. I shall giveyou twice four hundred yams. Go ahead and prepare your farm” (Achebe 25).
The planting of yams is more critical than simply accommodating your family, but at the same time it’s accustomed to unite individuals. The teacher’s entry changed the way cultivating was performed; it removed kids from the fields and place them in the classroom; it brought another type of government, and it brought its own exchange. Farmland was cheapened, crops were worth less cash, and financially the general population endured.
