|I think yes because nowadays we see children like foreign programs instead of our cultural programs which affect most of their mentality to be like them.|
|Srijan Rai said: (Mar 12, 2018)|
|In my opinion, I partly agree with this statement. Our culture is our identity so its our responsibilities to preserve and protect it. However, it is good to learn something from someone or somewhere which are beneficial for all. Moreover, we can learn a lot from the foreign program, we can learn such miracle things like information about creatures from deep ocean and cultures and customs from the different foreign program. Everything has their both negative as well as a positive part only the difference is that we should analysis right things to enter in our mind and utilize it in a proper way and ignore the bad once which is in our hand. Therefore government should take responsibilities to promote and protect our culture by organizing a variety of program in our local channel and promote it by giving a platform for younger talented people by providing prizes for good actors or actress.|

|Good Morning Friends,
According to me, Foreign culture is destroying our culture. Sometimes, this is used to improve our knowledge. But, the foreign culture has been destroying our culture.
For example, women's dresses and men's jeans. Because jeans is dangerous our health. Then foods also used in foreign food varieties. That food affects our health suchas, cancer, obesity, thyroid problems. Then processed foods also done by foreign products. So foreign culture is destroying our culture.
|Deepz. said: (Feb 8, 2018)|
|May be they are destroying us! but, still they are like innovators to indians. Actually, we can learn lot of things from the movies like interstellar, terminator, divergents, etc. It depends on the person watching. If a girl wear jeans it doesn't mean that she is destroying our culture but it means she is very much comfortable in wearing it.
So, I would say that rather than protesting against westren culture. Let us grab some good ideas on that and make our India much better.
|Ankita said: (Nov 5, 2017)|
|India is a vast country with 1.3 million people. It is rich in traditions and cultures. Nothing can destroy such diverse culture of our country. And so foreign TV channels also can't affect our culture. In fact we can learn a lot of things from foreign TV channels. They are innovators. They are full of ideas and creativity. Unlike Indian TV shows they can teach a lot of things. Science fiction shows how best can we use technology. Then there are many other shows based on a new concept which unlike Indian movie of typical love story and serials based on saas bahu conflict. Also we improve our communication skills which is must in corporate world.|
|Nandhu said: (Aug 13, 2017)|
|Foreign television channel is not destroying our culture. Actually, it is used to improve ourselves. We are all not a kids. We know what is good and bad. And also it depends on the individual thinking. It's all our vision how to we take it. Actually, foreign channel is helpful to know about the other's culture.|

|According to me,
Foreign television channels are not destroying our culture, in fact channels like discovery and NatGeo. Provides information and practical views. It totally depends on the person what he wants to see it's nothing related to culture. Their tv shows are far better in technology than our and their rankings are on a global level, so instead, we should try and make our shows at par in excellence as theirs.
|Akil said: (Jul 24, 2017)|
|Foreign television channels are not destroying our culture it used for creating things and history of apes and wild life etc.|
|Aruna.V said: (Jul 24, 2017)|
|In my point of view, foreign channels destroy our culture. For example, women's are used to dress neatly but nowadays there are following culture and most important is food but our Indian people were following fast food from foreign culture these are the worst thing. I think so. And some shows are can not be seen by children's. When BBC shows in India they only bad events and when our India conduct world health organisation In BBC news they show top headline due to poverty India conducted a WHO.|
|Pravallika said: (Jul 19, 2017)|
|According to me, watching to foreign television channels may not destroy our culture because it is up to the individual, one should grab new and good things by watching the flaunt English channels which can develop our communication skills. Here, Newton's third will depict a lot, as it says for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction we people are trying to change our culture into Western but the foreign people are trying to follow our customs. So it is up to us to watch the foreign channels or not.
|Rasik Preet Nahar (Bilsrk Forever) said: (Jul 16, 2017)|
|According to me, there are both negative and positive effect of foreign channels on our culture as on one one side small children who are only of 3 to 4 years and should learn good things but are glued to foreign cartoon channels like shin chan and oggy and the cockroaches they are not getting good deeds from that and are spoiling their minds due its Hindi translations it's getting worse if the future of our county will only forget is culture and will adopt these things then what will happen to our country as every coin has two sides these channels also in a positive way forget news channels sports channels are the one who informs us about the world they don't affect our culture but still there is an impression of westernisation is there on our minds foreign news channels even make us modern and connects us to the world.
|Kayel said: (Jun 16, 2017)|
|According to my view of point, the foriegn channel helps to invent new thing. The thing is Indian channels.
They are the destroyable ones.
|Pallavi Sharma said: (Mar 24, 2017)|
|According to me, foreign television channels are not destroying our culture because it depends on us what we gain from television and foreign or Indian channels. It depends on our mentality what we thing right or wrong. Ex. Television also shows or display good news or channels but why we gain bad things. And after that, we blame foreign channels and say. They are responsible for destroying our culture. As we see and learning about culture in the childhood and after that one channel or news or a program can destroy our culture easily. How this possible? And please stop blaming another thing or a person for our mistakes. So first we should change ourself and another point is that. It depends on us we want to destroy or not, our culture. Thank you.|

Is Homosexuality a bad content? Homosexuality is a sexual preference. Now I can understand how the people having a narrow mindset can think this way, but since I know you are exposed to the internet, I expected better. Grow up and widen your mind. Improve your thoughts.
|Jujube Sabat said: (Jan 31, 2017)|
|In my view, it's our thought that foreign channels destroy the culture. No doubt it's the fact.
The main thing is to control ourself first. We are continuously watching and getting the bad impact.
Even I too see such. We can't blame anyone for a sake of destroying the culture.
We are getting addicted to it. If we are not addicted then any destroy in culture.
Change urself first then the rest.
|Arun Kumar said: (Jan 7, 2017)|
|@Sumit gc. I think you are little bit wrong about your saying for Indian tv shows that the story revolves around only between saas and bahu but what are you thinking that foreign tv channels do not have a same based stories. Have you seen any foreign tv show?
Out of the topic, you should know that the best actors on the basis of acting are in our country as compared.
This topic is a whole dependent on the mentality and thoughts of the people.
Think of it.
|Ajit Kumar Nayak said: (Oct 27, 2016)|
The foreign television channels are nowadays are the guidelines for our modern civilization. From child to old man, all prefer that. But we have to control our point of view so that that cannot destroy us. We are nowadays preparing ourselves by watching &knowing the procurement which are always appreciated especially our youth. The youth by seeing the learning program, always motivated to go ahead by developing their inner personal skill and all the attribute related to their day to day life.
So there must be a slogan-gain right thing and leave wrong thing.
Thanking you all.
|Sumera said: (Oct 22, 2016)|
|Foreign channels are not destroying our culture. It's wrong to say. If they thing that they destroy our culture then why they cannot act upon that thing very soon. Why they act now. This is only their selfishness, not anything more. Sorry but I m not agree with that concept. Because it's wrong way of improvement of our culture. Very bad. Every person has their own point of view and nobody have any right on others life.|
|Suman Gc said: (Aug 30, 2016)|
|In my opinion, foreign tv channels are not destroying our culture.
They are just depicting their culture from these channels, adaptability is up to us whether we want to adopt it or not.
In my opinion, foreign channels are far better than Indian tv shows where we can easily predict what's going to happen next and in our Indian tv shows the story only revolves around saas and bahu. Bahu becoming nagging or a fly to take a revenge I mean I think our Indian shows are destroying our culture.
If I'll ask anyone in India who is better Pradyumna or sherlock homes definitely we know the answer or we can say our flying jet or spiderman superman.
Instead, I think foreign television is helping us in some way as we all know nowadays how important English has become we all know the value of English in the corporate world.
So in some or the other way these channels definitely helps us to improve our communication skills and in some way these might help in improving our English too.
The shows like FRIENDS which is an epic show no one can ever beat this show. I mean have we seen an Indian show like this depicting the story of some friends hanging out together.
Parents usually tell their children don't watch English shows as they shows all kind of dirty things and in my opinion, these are the only cause that there are so many cases in Indian than in any other country.
In all foreign television channels Are not destroying our culture but instead I think we should learn something forms their culture and tries to inculcate in our daily life.
|Ajaysatpute48@Gmail.Com said: (Aug 22, 2016)|
Friends, foreign tv channels are presenting their culture. So that we can compare our traditions with them & can choose those things which are best suitable for us. We have to change according to the world. Now it's on us that how we make our benefit from them. Nowadays Indian tv channels are following the western culture so if they are destroying our culture eventually it comes to Indian channels also.
|Adari said: (Aug 16, 2016)|
|Foreign channels are not harmful to Indians because our traditions are strong and they are watching under parents and the foreign channels main concept is entertainment.|
|Maneesha said: (Aug 7, 2016)|
As I know, foreign channels are used to learn English. By seeing some channels we can improve our communication skills. Even though there are some channels like F TV we may destroy also. But good or bad is depend on us. If we avoid such channels we do they supply those channels. We should avoid first.
|Suraj Anand said: (Jun 24, 2016)|
|No, Indian Television Channels And Bollywood are enough to destroy our culture.|
|Rikita Rana said: (Mar 16, 2016)|
|Foreign television channels are helpful. They are not destroying our culture. For example sherlock holmes show, oprah winfrey show useful to increase your english speaking skills, helpful in make your english speaking conversation better.
Foreign movies are the mixture of action, good different story, drama and most important is science fiction movie which increase your knowledge regarding technology.
Movies like Terminator movie series which shows that with the help of technology human crate humanoid robots.
Movies like Evolution, Residential evil series shows that during biological experiment if any hazard occurred than human beings have to suffer from it and if those experiment have completed Successfully than world can get new biological invention to make future better.
Movie like titanic is very good movie to understand what happened and how people have survived during this historical accident.
Jurassic park movie series represent life of big animals in earlier century days, how world destroyed, how these jiant animal destroyed from the world.
And some shows like AFV (American funny videos) and Just for laugh are good for refresh your mind. It makes you laugh for sometime.
Some movies like fast and furious movie series, Lake Placid 3, Anaconda movie series, Piranha are nice movies which shows that if animals got big and wild that how it destroy human beings. It's good imaginative movies.
Now if I talk about Hindi channels, movies there is just boring serials which isn't helpful. Hindi movies have just one story content like love story.
So Foreign channels are better if people want good entertainment and want to learn something good.

|Satya said: (Feb 29, 2016)|
|Foreign channels are not destroying our culture it is based upon our mind sets and attitude and in some ways foreign channels are improving language if you are thinking foreign they are destroying our culture if foreigners are using our culture.|
|Pankaj Kumar said: (Feb 27, 2016)|
In my opinion I don't think so Indian culture are destroying by foreign TV channel, it provides huge information regarding technology which is very important for today's generation.
Foreign channel reflect their culture and tradition what they have and its up to you whether you adapt or not.
India famous for their culture and tradition across the world but most of the people say that if some person watch foreign channels they forgot their Indian culture they wear jeans, designer cloth etc ya I know these type of cloth came from western culture.
So it's not means that if we Indian wear kurta pajama so we follow Indian culture, Indian people known for their brain sharpness, discipline, respect of their parent etc.
Although foreign channel like discovery, NGO, BBC etc provides knowledge regarding animal, new discovery, gadget, etc which we can't expect by Indian channel.
|Ankit Goyal said: (Feb 9, 2016)|
|Behalf of my personal knowledge I write this stuff. I think that western channels are not destroying our culture they improve our knowledge because when we see channels like discovery, natgeo, history tv they show extraordinary stuff that we will never seen before on any channels.
The discovery channel shows manufacturing of audi, ferrari now can you imagine this kind of manufacturing can be seen on other channel. That is my point and western channel like HBO are present their stuff with english subtitles so we can easily understand what they can say and this improves our english too.
|Aman said: (Dec 17, 2015)|
According to me foreign channels are not destroying our culture. It depends on person to person. How he/she takes the things. As India is a democratic country. Everyone has right what he/she wants to do. As we are adopting many things from foreign countries. As We prefer wearing western/foreign apparels rather than khakhi clothes. Many people prefer because we like it.
If foreign countries are destroying our culture. Than why we all are appreciating English language, English songs and movies. Why we are sharing our views in English rather than Hindi. As Hindi is our national language. Foreign channels are showing their culture. If we find something good. Than we should adopt it. We should not criticized anything.
|Anal T Balu Memury said: (Nov 8, 2015)|
I do think that foreign channels are harming our culture because when anybody goes through a channel he forgets to live in the reality and goes into a world of imagination and he tries to imitate it. This attitude of course will harm our culture. If we people think that our culture is way better than any others then we should avoid these channels.
|Priya Agrawal said: (Oct 30, 2015)|
|From my point of view, foreign channels are more subjective than our Indian channels, foreign channels and even movies make the implementation of technologies rather than the emotional and narrow minded things.
I don't say that Indian channels are completely bad, they too show the faces of political fights and riots, but in a exaggerated manner. This is a complete different in foreign channels. They are subjective.
|Nwankwo Covenant said: (Oct 29, 2015)|
|Well. I feel that foreign TV channels are destroying our culture through influence. Am a Nigerian and I have seen a lot. Most Nigerians now don't value their culture any more when it comes to food they prefer eating foreign food to our own locally made food which is even more nutritious and healthier to our body also language.
Most Nigerians don't even care about speaking their mother tongue anymore fashion also. They prefer wearing foreign materials and so on which is not meant to be.
|Farheen Shabnam said: (Oct 14, 2015)|
I would like to say that actually I had take part in debate competition and my topic is ''Is really television spoiling our Indian culture and I'm in the against of the motion. Apart of this I have to say that the television is the great medium for education and other useful learning stuff but we cannot ignore the dark side of television, the young generation were spoiling their knowledge toward the reality of world and were living in the world of imaginations.
|Jagadish Jal said: (Oct 6, 2015)|
|Hi friends, I am Jagadish.
I wants to express my own view on this gd topic. In my view foreign TV channels are not destroying our culture but it improve our knowledge on the various factors. When we see the channel like historical channel, discovery, BBC, etc. We gets a lot of knowledge basically on English. We gets new knowledge from historical channels, as we gets chances to see many new places, specially the historical places.
We develops our English power when we hear their speaking style, their pronunciation, tone, etc. We also gets a lot of scientific knowledge from foreign channel. It is also developed our general knowledge. Though it has bad effects but it is totally depends on us what to see and what not to see.
So in my view we should except the right thing and left the evil side, so that it will be better for us in future.
|Shashank said: (Oct 4, 2015)|
|A country where you prefer foreign brand, you watch Hollywood movies more than Bollywood, you speak and write a foreign language, you plan you holidays in foreign countries, you want job in foreign country, you prefer your baby to be born in foreign mean while you crave for every foreign thing, then what is the problem with foreign channel. At-least we get some sensible to watch on those channels.
And for the people who are talking about Indian culture, my question is what is your culture. Demand for dowry is your culture!, getting burnt by your mother-in-law is your culture!, not wearing jeans is your culture!, kissing in public is again your culture!, demanding for reservation is your culture! Come on!
|Rohan said: (Sep 27, 2015)|
|My opinion regarding these topic is that foreign TV channels are not destroying our culture it depends upon the viewers thought from these channels we can improve the communication skill, through these channels BBC, discovery, national geography we can get the information of other countries in few minutes we can understand there culture and various techniques they are using for agriculture.
As well as how they are doing the transportation of fruits various product coming from farm to get more benefit as in India almost 60% of people are farmer. So it depends upon the person which things should he take which should not. Another thing is that about the fashion TV through these we can gain how to wear dress for various function to look a good person.
|Rathna Reddy said: (Sep 23, 2015)|
|In TV channels serials are telecasting from Monday to Saturday from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm not only for the entertainment but also human being health are upset. I think so TV channels are destructing the Indian culture not only for this reason finally I want to say one the thing human beings are addicted towards serials more then news channels.|
|Anusha said: (Sep 21, 2015)|
|Guys you people done well. But, what I wanna say is foreign channels are just like tide. When it is coming before to us if we will be there we will be die. But if we move aside we will be safe. Just, like that if we watch any vulgar stuff it will disturb us. If we ignore it we will be safe. So, it is not channels mistake they have right to exhibit there culture. It's our fault of misusing it.|
|Sumit said: (Sep 18, 2015)|
|Some channels who display discovery/invention/technology are not destroying our culture they improve our knowledge.
But some other channels who display homosexuality/other bad contents are certainly destroying our culture. Our eyes and ears are input device for our brain, the data that enters in brain will be surely affecting the person, we can't ignore that. And kids don't even know what to keep and what to discard.
Remember the topic of this GD was "whether foreign channels are destroying our culture" and not who else is responsible for this, so do not divert from the topic indeed some channels are responsible.
|Rajan said: (Aug 6, 2015)|
|Well, I don't think so that foreign channel destroy our culture. There are lot of English channels and it depends on person's channel choice. If they want to improve their language - 2, this is the best way.
If we watch the Hollywood movies, BBC news channels we learn lot of things like how to talk, read, write and listen their language. I often watch these channels and I improve myself in language - 2.
|Rajiv $ Kumar said: (Jul 21, 2015)|
|I completely disagree with that foreign TV is destroying over. It is true very interesting serial, movie and documentary leaves its influence in memory. But It depends on a person how does he assume and react.
Because every type aspects are available around us. But it does not mean we follow all scenarios and implement in our life. Culture is art of living, it depends on you how do you make it better.
|Neel said: (Jun 6, 2015)|
|Why only foreign channels? Any kind of inappropriate visuals or verbals should be banned like in internet, TV, songs, magazines etc. In order to discuss about so called "destroying our Indian culture" we should know what it really is. I can not mention his/her name, but what he/she written is unbelievable!
According to it wearing inappropriate clothes, keeping different hairstyles, having homosexual relationships are against Indian culture. It not at all matters what you are from outside. What really matters is what you are from inside. So, in a Nutshell I just want to tell you that banning anything is not going to change anything, unless we change ourselves.
|Selvi Reva said: (May 26, 2015)|
According to me, foreign television channels are destroying our Indian culture, because if anyone watch any TV channel, they think that mentally I too change such heroin style. So easily the teenagers change, like their costumes, hair styles etc., this spoils our Indian culture.
The children also affected by foreign channel because now a days more number of children from their childhood watching some unwanted scene which is below their maturity level where they couldn't differentiate which is good or bad, so easily they are addicted, and forget our culture.
Now a days children and youngsters are very important in any developing nation. If youngster and children easily change, then how will they develop their country. Finally foreign culture is destroying our Indian culture.
|Apps said: (May 16, 2015)|
I want to make a point here that it is not the channel that matters, what matters most is the content. How can we ban & blame foreign channels if our own channels are not any less in terms of spoiling our culture. Can we appreciate songs of sunny leone, honey singh & bhojpuri dances? Are they a part of our culture? Absolutely not. So we should first check out ourselves before blaming others.
The second lies in our conservative mentality and due to this the one who suffers the most are our children. From the day he/she is born we start planning & saving for their studies in America and here we are talking of banning foreign channels. Imagine them getting to Harvard the first day and being ragged up because our very cultured children simply can't adjust to this new world, the will feel like aliens and will die of inferiority complex.
In my view the whole world is like a village nowadays and we should try to respect the culture and thinking of all of them. And we should teach our child as well to respect all cultures. The more we restrict them the more we will lose them. So talk to them, tell them & be frank with them. Because remember, TV is not the only medium it is one of the mediums. Internet, magazines, friends are still there.
|Sushil said: (Apr 9, 2015)|
Talking in favour of the topics I would say yes Indian culture is somewhat affected by the foreign television channels. Though the picturisation, graphics and finally telling the moral of the episode is best of all other television channels along with that some of these foreign TV channels simply attracts the viewers because of their various beauties of presentation.
But, the purity of India is its culture like obeying our elders, respecting senior citizen, knowing about the wrong and right thing from our inner soul which at times tells us not to do the thing which it feels incorrect or wrong is somewhat easily affected by that great western culture TV channels.
Since the great religion tells the beauty of the world simply by their beautiful and sensible words (Such as The Mahabharata, Indian Vedas, The Bible, Quran etc) and not by any vulgarity.
|Rajesh Kumar said: (Apr 7, 2015)|
I don't think so that by the foreign television, how can destroy our culture its depends upon a person and his views TV channels are for entertainment. So they would never harmful for our culture. Just need positive thinking and believing in our-self. Nothing can destroy our culture. If we have good intention and positive thinking.
|Rajkumar said: (Apr 1, 2015)|
|God evening friends, I think all the foreign channels are not bad, also most of the Indian television channels are not good.
Say for instance discovery, NGC, History channels etc are showing many good documentaries, have the quality of info regarding science, history, business, innovative ideas etc.
But in contrary most of the Indian English News channels having the slave mindset adopted from colonial British and Macaulay way of education indulge in airing of biased news, twisting of facts, aligning with one particular community or religion or political party and ignoring attacks and conversions problems faced by other religion and community and also lobbying for foreign imported culture like gay life style and Freedom without any responsibility etc.
And indulge sensationalism and shady journalism, avoiding intellectual debate on national issues and totally ignoring positive aspects of our country and its rich culture, focusing only on spicy, negative and airing news and maligning particular community or organization or individual without any proof.
In fact, some of the documentaries shown in discovery channel on ancient Indian philosophy and pilgrimage site in Himalayas, Kethernath, with the respectful manner along with lines of Upanishads, without western prejudiced view and twisting of facts.
|Deepika said: (Feb 4, 2015)|
This is a burning issue in India to talk or speak about. It's not correct to make foreign channels as a wrong issue. If we see a new thing we would like to watch it with more excitement. But watching is only our duty but not imitating it. Even we don't have right to judge what is wrong or what is correct because we ourselves are part of it.
Why should we think foreign channels are the reason for the reason for destroying our culture. Why don't we think mistake in ours?
Friends I would like to say one more thing with an example.
If a boy of clever student has failed his examination due to illness. So he asked to his teacher to give him one more chance. The teacher has excused him and given a chance to write an exam in one separate room and keeping with him an invigilator.
So the teacher have kept papers near him and she has gone away. The teacher had confident that he is a clever student so he will not copy and she left that place. By going teacher outside he has decided to copy exam and he has copied the exam.
Mistake is in boy or in teacher. No there is no solution for it. Because teacher have a confident that he will not copy the exam and by keeping papers in front of student he will definitely have a little hope to copy the examination.
So it the mistake is in ours we don't have right to judge what is right and what is wrong. So I would like to say one more thing whatever we do it depends on our mindset. believe in you and your heart then nothing is going to be bad.
|Debjyoti Dutta said: (Jan 30, 2015)|
|If foreign channels can be accused of spreading bad taste to the delicate minds of our youngsters then give me a reason of not blaming Indian mythologies to stimulate public to carry out the shittiest cultures like polygamy, dowry, physical assault, rapes and so on. Because its totally Indian.
If something seems to be very much indigenous causing problems carried out through long time we hardly could imagine to hoarsely protest against it, just because its belonged to the local geographical area where we have been used to live in since long.
Just put a glance over Linga puja thriving in India where as no other country barely think of pampering such bad practices going on in massive scale as religious beliefs. Just watch Ramayana where Rama relinquish his beloved consort in a doubt that she might be touched by some uneven aspect, still we worship that character as a god in a hidden desire that someday if we could smite our girls the way he as we thought did.
Even Mahabharata we show explicitly the worst fortune suffered by two women namely Radha and Droupadi by their lover and relatives the way which we glorify as our pride. There is no dearth of examples set in Indian mythologies showing violence, incest, demoralization immensely we hardly count them. If sexuality are supposed to be as bad as worth paying nothing but immense disgrace, then how could you guys flag ancient temples like Khajuraho and Koark which promotes nudity and eroticism hugely as our national pride.
If you guys wants to go for subjugating foreign shows promoting violence which you jerks blamed for spreading the sense of inhuman intolerance among youngsters then my question to you is how could those illiterate people, from the villages who never been in such a situation to afford television sets or cable channels to get connected, be so violent?
And those shittiest TV serials emphasize on frail characters as a good and ideal one who can do nothing but futile moaning and weeping with petty sentiments. Why not they show some strong women who fights with boys. Why your Indian TV serials fend off from reality and choose to live in utopia?
|Ameya said: (Jan 24, 2015)|
|As for scenes which aren't very suitable for television viewing, they are edited by the channel before airing. For example, swear words used in the big bang theory are muted and the words are not shown, and love scenes are cutout, which in my opinion is a good thing.|
|Ameya said: (Jan 24, 2015)|
|Before broaching the subject I think it would be wise to remember that the reason English shows are becoming more popular in our country is the lack of hyped up drama scenes (except for shows that actually belong to that genre).
Secondly, it may be correct to say that the shows a person watches tend to affect his or her mindset, however in the end it depends on the viewer's personal discretion or a child's parents decisions whether or not a particular program is healthy for viewing. I agree that Indian culture is at the opposite end of American culture.
In fact in my opinion, even though we have our faults, as a whole, the country is good. As for creativity, it seems that most of the shows, in our country have become repetitive and the standards have gone to the dogs. Earlier, when we used to have weekly shows on Doordarshan (like the prime time shows in US) , it allowed for better scripts, character development and plots.
Concepts also seem to have taken a backstage. Production houses today, are going with the tried and tested formula of what seems to work with the masses, which is sadly a relentless drone of melodrama. Also, when directors do try to send a better message to the people of our country, most people tend to not focus on it, due to the glamorization of antagonistic roles. The television today in India could play a pivotal role in the development of society.
However it is necessary also, to maintain a harmony between public awareness, education and entertainment factor. As for corruption of culture by foreign shows comes into play, need anything be said about the type of statements made on certain comedy shows, or the somehow stupid argument that Hindi movies have to have a item song, which has a crass tune, pathetic musical arrangement and lyrics, along with offensive videos. Shows such as the blacklist or many others may not send a public message, and it isn't necessary that every show does.
Because there's just a time when you need to unwind after a hard day's work and watch something funny. But that doesn't mean it has to have double meanings like most our Hindi movies, or have to have slapstick comedy either. The immense popularity of Sarabhai vs Sarabhai proves this. Also, nobody says this, but its probably time that certain shows end. I mean, some shows are humiliating and portray Indian police in bad light.
Our police don't repeat the same sentence over and over 10 times just for dramatic effect. They are in fact brave, and very intelligent, however the characters portrayed in a few shows are stupid and dumb. Also, the plots just keep on getting worse. Mantras? Bhoots? Either make an intelligent cop show like crime patrol or criminal minds or castle, or just don't make one. Indian audiences are intelligent.
However in some shows, the directors feel the need of over explaining things, as though the Indian popularization able to place two and two together. Make TV intelligent. Make morally responsible shows which are also entertaining.

|I think that to pace up with the running world we have to transform our mindset. Instead of looking at the darker side we can also have a glance of the brighter side. Wearing jeans, t-shirt and other foreign clothes, aren't they a threat to our culture. We couldn't compete USA. Just by copying their modern lifestyle. We should also try to have modern thought like them.|
|Rohit said: (Dec 29, 2014)|
|I strongly think that foreign TV shows especially like Star World, Zee Cafe etc and foreign products advertisements are strongly trying to attack our Indian culture by showing extra marital affairs, violence, fights in families, exposure to sexual encounters openly etc. We should understand that these things don't exist in our society. We Indians believe in family system and respecting each other and our parents.
When Indian youth, kids, women and all people watch such serials violence, extra marital affairs and infidelity seem acceptable to them. This happens because it is shown continuously on the television. Women are objectified in the western culture which can be easily seen in their TV shows, movies and advertisements etc. So think about it. It is an indirect attack on the minds of young people who start justifying lusting women, violence and various other crimes.
If this is not attacking our citizens and its culture, then what is? Some people have mentioned in their answers that it depends upon us what we need to accept from their shows. But what about the young minds especially the teenagers who have just begun to see the world and understand it.
Do these young minds really think about judging it? Watching television automatically shuts our brains and we just keep watching and putting in whatever stuff the television set feeds us. Do you really think that the young minds are going to filter the violence, crime and lust shown in these foreign TV series?
Please think about it.

At this time India is a developing country and I think the development of this country completely depends on us so we should expand our thinking. It's not limited that foreign channels destroying our culture so at this time what is the condition of our culture everyone got introduced that if there is no existence of a good and developed culture than what is destroying here.
In this modern and hi-tech world, there is India in which villages having no condition that anyone since their childhood can learn something from their culture that help's to lead in their future life.
Culture is nothing but our thinking only if you do best for yourself and everyone than its good so foreign channel may be helpful for someone its nothing for destroying our culture.
|Poulami Roy Chowdhury said: (Dec 24, 2014)|
According to me foreign television channels can not destroy our culture. We are responsible for that. As par my point of view we are learn many things like communication skill, language skill also and we also improve our ability. So it is our responsibility how to handle it.
|Manvi said: (Dec 15, 2014)|
|I am also a youngster and according to me, what I think it is only depends on the state of our mind that how we perceive it and I do not think that foreign channels are destroying our culture or devouring our rules of India. We are living in a modern world so we should adopt broad thinking, not only this we should open our minds in a new direction making our own rules by committing some mistakes and of course adopting a positive attitude towards things and even with the foreign channels also. As I have implement this in my life when I was at the teenage and mark my words that day and this day has brought a lot of changes in my life.
Even you try this in your life. You will yourself get to know the changes yourself. And share it with us also.
|Tejaswi Ananth said: (Dec 5, 2014)|
|Well hello guys I feel that Indian culture is getting ruined just because of how we Indians are taking the matter into consideration as we are not taking a negative aspect as a negative aspect.
Eg: If a hero is smoking, drinking, ruining a woman's life our youngsters feel that they should make all those activities to become a hero. So even though the foreign channels do not affect directly but they are indirectly affecting the Indian culture and heritage.
|Vishwaranjan said: (Nov 30, 2014)|
|I think Foreign channels destroying our culture in many ways because by seeing foreign channels youth forgetting their own culture and adopting foreign culture and also forget their parents.|
|Shilpa said: (Sep 25, 2014)|
In point of view, foreign television channels are not responsible for destroying our nation. Its totally depends up on us how to get the knowledge and information from them and everything depends upon viewers. So we are responsible for destroying a nation.
|Borgio said: (Sep 21, 2014)|
|I don't think foreign TV channels are not destroying our culture. Because why I am saying like this the reason is foreign channels providing good knowledge, through this we can improve my ability, language skills, and also communication such as channel like animal planet, discovery.|
|Manish Kumar said: (Aug 21, 2014)|
|According to me foreign channels are not destroying our culture even I think that according to the present era some of our Indian channels are trying to destroy our culture.
Its because we all know that from the past few years we see that in our Indian channels more vulgar stuff is shown in TV shows and movies.
We can understand this thing easily by checking out the difference between the older Indian movies and the newer movies shown on our channels, here you will find a big difference in anything like clothes, style, culture etc.
So according to me we are responsible for destroying our culture and not others.
For eg :- if you do hard work for getting success in your work, you will get the best results its not your neighbour who is getting success and if you do bad things it affects you not others.
Foreign channels facilitates us with the latest information, technology etc. All around the world.
And some of the channels which we use to see or heard about from our childhood like discovery which is very helpful for sharpening our brains, so how can we say that foreign channels are destroying our culture.
I know that everything in this world have some advantages and disadvantages also so its upto you which side of the coin you want to choose.
|Shikhar Jindal said: (Aug 20, 2014)|
I think that foreign channels in no way destroying our culture. It is up to us what we want to accept and what not. There are many channels which help us in many ways to improve our communication skills, to expand our knowledge and to keep pace with the growing advancement in technologies.
If something is right and will help us then why to hesitate in accepting it. Please tell me is it really possible for us to wear dhoti-kurta and work for whole day.
At last. Our culture is best and it is not so weak to be destroyed so easily.
|Rajesh said: (Jul 11, 2014)|
|Good evening friends.
I have read everyone's view and I am in agreement with many of my friends. I don't think that all foreign channels are bad. Many foreign channels are there which provide us good knowledge about science and technology, about various parts of world, about various types of animals plants, about various minerals. Indian space programmes are not well advanced so some foreign channels provide lots of information about space and its related contents. There are channels which shows talent shows. Based on these foreign channels and programmes many programmes are made in India which provide platform for the talented people of the country to show their talent in front of the world.
Why we go for the negative aspects of it why can't we think of the positive things related to many foreign channels. May be we may not like many things related to their culture but Its not wrong according to them. Why just we can't absorb positive points and discard the negative things.
I want to conclude that just because we don't like western culture we should blame all channels.
|Sweta said: (May 14, 2014)|
I dnt think so foreign culture destroying our culture. We are blaming others for our mistakes. We all Indians are responsible for destroying our cultures not others. Just 1 eg here suppose if you do good, do hard work for getting success in your work. You will get the best result, its not your neighbor who is getting success. Similarly if you do bad things its affect you not others or others do wrong thing it will affect them not you. So my point is that we should not blame others for our fault.
We are letting ourself to choose the best one whether it is bad good. We can't blame others for our choice. Its up to you what do you want.
I agree that they are accepting western culture its not bad also because if you see number of foreign channels provide good knowledge and information about the new technologies. Nowadays english language become the king of the world. Everywhere we use this lang for eg in corporate world, school, business etc. Without this we can not think ahead if you want to get success in your life in this modern world. Elders suggest us to see english channel to improve language.
Some of the channels are not good so don't prefer it. Its human nature to accept bad thing very easily. So guys at last I want to say that dnt blame others for destroying our culture.
|Sameer said: (Apr 30, 2014)|
|Wise people said that people do what they think and what they watch. But this is not right to blame that foreign channels are destroying our culture. Because people should become responsible that what they are watching. This depends on people that what they are watching and what they want to watch. Foreign channels are showing their own culture and there are many good things which we can learn from them. And if we talk about bad things then Indian channels are also playing their role. Some Indian serials are more responsible for family conflicts than foreign channels.
But I also want to mention here that parents should keep an eye on their children that what they are watching. Because they are innocent and do not know the difference between right or wrong. So parents should guide them to watch good programs. And there are also many knowledge and science based foreign channels like discovery and animal planet and channels based on food cooking etc which explore new and creative things to people's minds and enhancing our knowledge.
Change is law of nature. Today we do not have the same tradition, values and beliefs which we had thousand years ago. And if we are changing our culture to great extent then foreign channels are not only responsible. There are many other causes of it too. Blaming foreign channels in particular is not right.
|Kamal Bahadur said: (Feb 25, 2014)|
I don't think that foreign television channels are destroying our Indian culture, it is foreign tv channel's right to show their culture, even all other country 's right to show their culture. If we taking positive way, foreign tv channels are beneficial to us. We can get information around the world by the foreign news channel, we can get different kind of knowledge by discovery, planet world, net geography channel these are from foreign TV channel there are so many other channel which provides information and knowledge.
|Prateik said: (Feb 12, 2014)|
|I think that foreign TV channels had made a great impact on Indian culture. As we all know India is famous for their Indian classical music and its dance forms. But due to impact of foreign channels people in India are showing interest in other dance and music form. Nobody is interested in our Indian dance and music. I don't say that foreign dance our music are bad but as we are indians we must show interest in our culture. This is my way of thinking. And I respects the views all of you had said.|
|Binu said: (Feb 7, 2014)|
|Hi to all.
I am totally Disagree with the topic.
As it is not the foreign channels which are destroying our culture. Its us only.
We are adopting every wrong from where ever we get. We have become brain less. And after any wrong result is seen than we blame foreign channels, westernisation.
The fact is we are coward enough not to take the responsibility of our deeds by ourselves, so intend to blame others for our not so good behaviour.
We have already destroyed the very essence of our culture, we have forgotten the morals and values, so what is left here in our country to be destroyed by any channel.
We always neglecting the good things to be adopted rather go for the wrong ones.
Aren't we mature enough to distinguish between good or bad.
So ultimately it's up to us which side of coin we want to see.
|Nishkarsh said: (Dec 18, 2013)|
|Hi guys I think foreign TV programmes are not destroying our culture. It depends upon us than what we take and what we take. And bad things are everywhere and good things are everywhere bu t instead of bad thinks there are many good behaviour person in our society. So we want think it no one can not destroy our culture whenever we don't want thanks.|
|Narender Seervi said: (Dec 15, 2013)|
Well, I don't think that foreign channels are destroying our culture. Depends on the type of movie. Vulgar scenes and double meaning dialogues definitely harm the society especially young children but there are many movies which encourage us to think from new perspectives.
No, your think is wrong, some channels are sometimes presence in your way. But most of the media's are as a good teacher for improve our knowledge.
Everything what Foreign Television Channels are giving us, till great extend it is enhancing our knowledge like giving us good channels eg. Discovery, national geography, history channel, animal planet and so on.
|Sowjanya said: (Oct 12, 2013)|
|Well, . It depends upon on the person whether he or she wants to imbibe a positive or negative. Do you think it right to put blame on others for all our wrong actions? What is happening in our society is all because of us, not because of any person or any foreign channels. There are so many good channels which is useful for our development. So everyone try to grasp positive things from the channels.|
|Inder said: (Sep 10, 2013)|
|What kind of culture here we are talking about? I mean guys, just think about it. The quality content which we can get from BBC, can we expect that from India TV? definitely not. I am not saying all Indian channels are bad, but foreign channels are providing us the kind of information we need, we get to know whats happening around the world. We are not interested in knowing what a sadhu is doing or teaching, right?
As it has been said, I am totally in favor of foreign channels as I think they have more humor, information which we can't expect from any Indian channel.
Is there any science related or technology related channel in India ? no there is not, but there are few foreign channels which are making us more knowledgeable in every aspect. Here you can find more than 20 religious channels but not even 1 where we are provided with stuff which actually makes us a good human being. People do big talks, but I think its what we perceive that matters. Today in India they is a huge number of people who have open mind to each and every aspect of society which wasn't the case earlier. So I think we all can see that no matter what we talk about foreign channels are indeed making us more wise by opening are narrow mindedness.
|Harshika said: (Aug 16, 2013)|
|Firstly, foreign televisions are making the minds of youths vulnerable and they are adopting foreign culture forgetting their parents, culture and traditional values.
Secondly, foreign televisions are making people's mind disturbed and aggressive. They are adopting illegal methods to earn money instead of working hard and efficiently.
Thirdly, foreign television creates a differential attitude in all the youths since they are not believing in the concept of unity thus making the country full of illegal and addition of divide and rule policy in all over the world.
|Juby said: (Aug 5, 2013)|
Well, I don't think that foreign channels are destroying our culture. It depends on the thinking of the viewers that how do they interpret the material being viewed on these channels. Now a days the more vulgar stuff is being shown in Indian television shows and Indian movies. Foreign channels like discovery, fox travelers, tlc etc are good channels which gives knowledge about the earth, the people and different cultures all around the world. These can also help in improving communication skills which are very necessary these days.
|Rohit said: (Aug 1, 2013)|
|If we really compare in term of knowledge, then foreign television is much better then Indian because the technology they are using is much advanced. If you talking about their dressing. Then its people rights to wear what they like. Culture can't be destroy. This question is arise just because for young generation. Young people of India wants to be advanced like other country. But beside this journey you can't neglect your own culture.
"do you know that India is the only country where people bend and touch feet of the elders for respect".
I accept that lots of Indian television Channel like balika vadhu and more others they don't have a story without weeping.
Old people think that it is a part of culture but young generation knew that it's fake or just a idea to get TRP.
All knowledge base Channel broadcast by foreign channels.
I bet, if you think foreign culture destroy Indian culture than your age is greater than 40. Vise versa.

|Macauley had done enough damage in revamping our education system in introducing English (even though English is a spoken language by 3% minority people all over world) to such an extent that patriotism will never come up for another hundreds of years or rather thousands of years by their policy of divide & rule, which is carried further by any political party for their Vote bank politics. Foreign intruders/invaders have seen to it in thousands of years in the past that no remnants of glorious history in Vedic period remains so that future generations will live with distorted history with slave mentality nurtured by the Westerners in Indian minds.
While handing over freedom, Westerners have seen to it that power is not shared by nationalists like Vallabhbhai Patel etc but purely by their Kala Angrez agents like Nehru since 1947 itself. Indian homes are flooded with foreign branded goods due to brainwashing advertisements over TVs to such an extent that swadeshi goods have lost their identity. Due to paid media in India, now what is remained to harm India & it's culture, even if no Foreign Television Channels are not telecast ?
|Sonu said: (Jul 5, 2013)|
|I don't think foreign channels are spoiling our culture. Why are we just considering the bad things why can't we take up the good things they are offering. Nowadays spoken English and a good vocabulary is all we need to become the jack of all hearts. And we are often suggested to watch English news channels and some other English channels to improve our English. Some English channels are updating us with the recent technologies round the world. We can even get to know their way of living. We can adopt their work culture. And who is asking us to adopt their culture. Its totally up to us what we choose to adopt and what not.
Nowadays the cable operators have come up with the set top box system where we are given the facilities to choose just the channels we would like to watch. Then why can't we strike off the channels showing any harmful contents. Or simply stop watching them. We have many things to learn from them so choose the good and leave the rest.
|Anusha said: (May 28, 2013)|
|I don't think foreign tv channels are destroying our culture. We always have a habit of putting blame on someone or the other for each degradation we face either in our life or in society. But what we forget is, it is us who is responsible for everything. If these channels are showing something which we feel is destroying our culture we should not follow it. After all we are educated Indians who can understand what is good and what is bad. What these channels are showing is there culture which anyways we should understand can't be blindly followed. But what our channels are showing is it our culture. ?|

|Hello guys, I think every one have rights show there opinion, compare foreign TV channel to our TV channel both are have some good and some bad parts. It is fully depend upon to ourselves which side we take, if we take the bad parts of channel so, it is bad for ourselves or we take good parts of those channel so, it is good for us and the sentence is foreign TV channel only destroying our culture it is not true, we are also destroying our culture first we need to think in ourselves how much we are confidence to our culture and how much respect we are giving to our culture after that blame others and last word I want to say our culture is best culture nobody can destroying it.
Always think positive.

|Kanadante Mayavadenu said: (Mar 14, 2013)|
|After seeing all the comments I seriously felt to comment on the answers.
1. The topic never says about the programs that's shown in India. Its completely about the foreign television channels who are destroying our culture.
2. Whoever has written the answers over here has not seen many foreign channels or serials other than animal planet, discovery, nat geo on one side and other cartoon serials which they are damn sure are not created in India.
The truth is there are certain serial makers who are insulting our culture and making fun of it. Now we may say its the power of Bollywood that has made its magic all over the world but nowadays it has become a fashion to put a minimum of one Indian character in each and every serial. This seems to be great but its not. The directors are making those Indians to insult our culture. They are making fun of the rituals we follow, the superstitious beliefs which we had believed from a long time (and some which has scientific reasons too, which obviously we don't know). They are making those Indian actors over there to eat beef which you know how much a serious crime it is considered in here.
I should accept that animal planet, discovery and other channels showing about wildlife and cars and what not but not based on a certain story, are doing a good job. Just see those serials which has a story then you will get the answers.
I do accept that the reality shows are worst in our country since many of you might have guessed by now that its completely fake. But other serials are doing a good job where they are concentrating more on women empowerment. Some serials are showing about the crimes that have taken place before so that people esp. House wife's' can get to know about it and be mentally prepared for it. And the best of all, almost all serials, may be a bit boring, but have never gone against our culture.
Note: It may be any particular's choice to see the channel or serial. Its his right if I have to please him/her. But it never meant that we support those channels or serials esp. Foreign channels to comment or insult our culture. It was always our culture and I'm proud of it.
|Vipasha Sharma said: (Mar 11, 2013)|
|I agree that its us who has to keep a check on what we are adopting from what we see hence foreign channels can not be held responsible for the deterioration of out culture. But would you still say the same thing about a 10 years old kid who is watching a program in which two foreigners are using the swear words, wearing bikinis and getting intimate? Will you say the kid is responsible for what he is learning from it? Or I should ask- What (else) do you expect the kid to learn from this kind of program's? What we and specially our kids learn from what we watch is sometimes NOT really in our hands. We have to understand that it is the social responsibility of media to see that it is not harming the culture and the youngsters. Media is very powerful and as its said- With power comes responsibility. Yes, it applies to the Indian channels too but because of this fact foreign channels can't get away with it since they are the ones which started all of this.
With this I would like to say foreign channels are responsible for the effects it has on our culture and not only our but on the culture of their country as well.
|Manmeet said: (Feb 12, 2013)|
|Foreign channels come in many forms news, sports,etc. So rather than blaming these foreign channels for destroying our culture we should ask ourselves that have we been completely honest with our culture. We should always take positive things from what we see and foreign channels just display their culture they do not force us to accept their culture. It is we who take all the negatives out of their culture and embed these things to our brain.|
|Awantika said: (Dec 19, 2012)|
|I think that foreign channels are not the main factor for destroying our culture. There is some amount of hand of foreign channels in destroying our culture but we can not blame only the foreign channels in destroying our culture. It is also we to destroy our heritage culture. But we should try to use the foreign channels to increase our knowledge. Before blaming others we should look at ourselves and ask are we perfect to blame anyone do we have that capability to blame or not. That's all for today see you all next time.|
|Shivangi said: (Oct 6, 2012)|
|Excuse me guysszz. , .
How we can blame foreign TV channels for today's degradation of youth what our TV channels are doing. Exactly they are also doing the same. Degrading today's youth in the same way as the foreign TV channels are doing. But just look towards the great channels which are gifts given by the foreign TV channels like Discovery, Netgeo, animal planet, fox traveler. So just look towards your self than point someone else.
|Pradeep Kumar said: (Sep 7, 2012)|
|Thanks all the above friend, according to my suggestion foreign channel don't effect our culture it show the thinking power of our culture,it show so many type of advertise on every day and how interpret this advertise depends upon us.... it also provide the motivational channels i.e (technology) that increase our thinking. though it we learn their culture,their activities of progressing ahead......... of thinking..... if we take it's searsouly then it is very benifical for us...... every cartoon, every technology developed different ...different way.............

|Jay said: (Sep 3, 2012)|
|I say that foreign channels are not alone responsible for the destruction of our culture. The most important factor that is a threat to our Indian culture is indians themselves. The attitudes of indians are changing as time passes and we are forgetting our valuable culture. The most important group here is the young generation. They have started adopting everything easily. But at the end of the day it is upto them to what they are getting adopted to.
Foriegn channels show their way of practices which can be watched by us so that we get an idea about their culture, but on the other hand we must not lose our individuality.
|Abhi said: (Aug 29, 2012)|
|Hello friends according to my views foreign channels are not destroying our culture they are just improving our knowledge and shows about their culture.They are not saying to us to follow the culture of their.I think that india has very strong culture from any other part in the world.foreigners are keen to get indian culture not our indian man and i think that indians are mentally very strong than others so there is no point of foreign channels are destroying our culture.If we have control on us than what the channel even they own are not capable of changing our views and teaches us wrong...
|Nanditha said: (Aug 22, 2012)|
|Our culture is not that weak to get destroyed by foreign channels. Its a heritage. They are just telecasting their show and its left to us what to accept and what to ignore, what to watch at and what not! There are many foreigners who are trying to follow our Indian culture and we should be proud of it instead of thinking that their channels are destroying our culture.|
|Prasanna said: (Aug 13, 2012)|

|Mrudula Kale said: (Aug 11, 2012)|
|I don't think that foreign channels will destroying our culture. Besides it boosts up the imagination also focuses on different thinking. Its on us that what to take or apply in our life. It not just very good entertainment but also helps to understand foreign culture, English language and expand the knowledge. !|
|Jasmine Farhana said: (Jul 30, 2012)|
|In my point of view the channel is not only change our culture so do not blame the foreign channels they don't ask you to change the culture we are only change the some sort of things based on habit, way of living dress codes etc. We are Indians so we don't copy from others we want teach our culture to foreign people that is a Indian culture.
Channel is not a problem humans the way of thinking is the problem.
|Abhishek said: (Apr 24, 2012)|
|We can never say that foreign channels are destroying our culture just before we say that we should first ask our selves that are we not that strong to hold our culture firmly. Foreign channels show their culture & they never ask you to copy those what they show. After being matured people are actually eligible to take or adapt right things therefore do adapt the good stuffs & forget the wrong stuff (according to our culture). But when it comes about our little children then for them there parents or the elderly people around them should be strict & cautious enough to deprive them from viewing such stuffs nothing else can be done cause television is the only medium where everything can be shown be it adult movies, be it animated movies for children or traditional stuffs.|
|Divya said: (Apr 22, 2012)|
|I like to say that foreign channels are not destroying our culture. They are just showing what their culture is. But they never asked us to follow their culture. Right? then why should we blame them?
Our country, India. Has a great culture and tradition which is respected and liked by the whole world. We should feel proud about it. The thing is, how an individual receiving the things shown in foreign channels? it depends upon an individual. And the foreign channels really gives lots of information which we doesn't get from our channels. The best example is Discovery channel. Everything we watch in it is very informative and useful. Helps to improve our knowledge on it. So it depends on us what we take from those channels and what we ignore.
TAKE THE GOOD. LEAVE THE BAD. !
|Anita Burman said: (Apr 18, 2012)|
|I think In my opinion, I am not agree that foreign television channels are responsible for it because it provide us so many knowledge of channels like discovery, animal planet, history, national geographic channel and so on. Foreign channels enhancing our knowledge.
We are human and knew that what is right or wrong. There are so many Indian and Foreign shows on TV which is diverting our mind, specially young generation. It depend on us in which types of shows we are watching on TV. Finally we have to watch knowledgeable and entertainment shows.
|Arya Sree said: (Mar 6, 2012)|
|There are a number of foreign channels which give us valuable information. Those channels of course show some sort of over exposure which we consider vulgar but actually part of their culture. So we indians are not suppose to blame them for that because even in our custom earlier women were not allowed to dress properly.
So my point is that our culture is deeprooted and hence impossible to get destroyed by a foreign channel. We should keep in mind that only we can contaminate our culture by inculcating their habits to our routine. So if our culture get destroyed we are responsible and we are to be blamed for that.
|Madhira said: (Feb 23, 2012)|
|In INDIA we have different television channels from different nations like US, UK etc. As all those are foreign channels there are movies and some other programs which reflect their culture and habits. What we all have to do is just to watch the channel programs and to know about their culture, language, their way of speaking, accent, their way of living. If it is better than ours we should try to inpliment in our lives. But this judgement is depend on ones mindset. We have our own culture and they had their own culture. We can't compare these things.
Of course, government had made all the foreign channels available for us. There will be no develoment if we consider our culture is top without considering all other cultures. We should observe their lifestyle their innovative programs if any and we should try to broad up our knowledge.
In the same way there are also other channels like Discovery, Animal planet which deals with the nature, science, etc. There are no Indian channel in this fashion. It is good opportunity for us to know about all the different kinds of birds, animals, through this channels.
So I conclude that No foreign channel will try to distroy our culture. The Indian culture is developed by Indians and all indians should respect it and should not forget it though he had well known with the other nation cultures.
|Sinu said: (Feb 17, 2012)|
|All of you are true and logical..its depend on ourselve how to take things. we need to change aour attitude, grasp only that thing who is good for us.Our indian culture is pure and diffrent. we must give respect and value it.|
|Deepika said: (Feb 15, 2012)|
|I don't think that foreign channels are destroying our culture. Infact it providing us various technical knowledge which Indian channels are not able to providing due to budget etc. You can see there are so many Indian channels are there which providing some uncensored kind of programs. So it depend on one how he would take it. Foreign cartoon channels providing more knowledgeble programs by which children can learn some basic things of schooling & they can aware of various things. So I would say that foreign television channels are not destroying Indian culture rather they are providing more appropriate channels.|
|Neha said: (Feb 14, 2012)|
|According to my opinion foreign channels are not at all destroying our culture. They are the one of the means of learning foregin languages and knowing their culture. Morever, people in India need to know outside culture as most of the Indian countries are doing business with western companies. And in addition to it, if children in India are adopting the western culture so it is of concern with upbringing of their parents.|
