“New Face Of Indian Culture “

March 13, 2009

Culture…………
Reading this topic u will realize that i am a bit conservative in nature and thoughts,but realities are facts that must be shared with everyone.
India known as the land of culture ,traditions,customs,beliefs etc,but this defination no longer exists.Indian culture is deteriorating day by day,place to place.Starting from the home,now days joint family system has been totally disintegrated and single family had superseded it.

Children who use to get love and affection from there grandparents in earlier days no longer exists.Lot of qualities were found in individuals reared under the guidance of grandparents like respectful and helpful behavior,responsibility,understanding situations etc.
But today situation is so much drastic that “Young generation doesn’t want to live with there parents after marriage”.Old age homes are the result of that.They don’t realize the importance of having parents and the sin they are doing in neglecting them.

People usually say “Parents hold position next to god “and in my ideas “even ahead of God”.
Blessing of parents have long-lasting effect.Don’t this generation realize that they will have to face the same situations when they will be older.Sins done today will definitely show there colours one day.

Secondly,present generation is greatly influenced by western culture.Boys use to look like girls and girls use to look like boys.Boys have long hair,wearing ear rings etc all popularly known as fashion.Girls have every short hair,short dresses.
Cinema is equally responsible for this.Results are inter-caste,inter-religion marriages,concept of living relationship etc.Percentage of love marriages have been increased,but there’s unsuccessful ratio had also increased.
Thirdly,the image of so called guru( teacher) had fallen,and so the thinking of the student.Quality of education had fallen a lot.Previously students use to worship there Guru’s as god ,and now days they are abusing them.Alcoholism,taking drugs at younger age,smoking,ragging etc bad qualities are nurturing a lot in younger generation.
Taking the political view,leaders are not performing there duties as performed by great Indian leaders earlier.
Money has become the primary moto and not duties,responsibilities work etc.

Regionalism,that we are north Indians ,they are south Indians is the most prevailing thought that is superceding the aspect of Indian ism.We are demanding, fighting for the separate regions like “Gorkha ,naksals,separate telangana etc.We must realize that we belong to a land where diversified cultures,traditions,religions,languages,climate,caste ,colour,creed etc are existing from many years.
“Unity in diversity”exists which must mat be destroyed.
So summarizing, i can say that there are many more aspects in which our culture is deteriorating…
“Revolution in mind is necessary to stop all this…”
