Hello everyone.

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.

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.

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.

Hi guys,

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.

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.

Thank you.

Hello guys.

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.

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.

Hi, guys.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you.

Hai guys.

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.

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.

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.

Hello everyone,

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.

Thank you.

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 ?

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.

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.

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.

Jai Hind.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I'm thirteen years old. And I'm not a Indian citizen. I'm a pure sri lankan. But India and sri lanka are very close countries. So I think our cultures are also very similar to each other. Foreign channels don't distroy our cultures. If we use it as a tool it won't do any harm to us. But the problem is most of us think that they are the reason why our cultures fade away smoothly. ! if we look deep into this problem, we can perfectly figure out that its our own minds which distroys our cultures.

I think that the foreign channels is not destroying our culture. Its depends on our thinking and leaning that, what I am getting from these channels and what is our thinking after watch. From these channel we improve our knowladge and we come to know about the word. For ex in discovery channel they tell us many funny fact of animals. In cartoon channels there are many program play, these program developed the childern's thinking and improve their ideas.

If we think about that there are many vulgar seen and program run in these channel we should not learn it or not use. Its for youth for their entetainment.

According to my opinion how we can say that foreign channels destroying our culture. Most of the resources are coming from foreign companies and real India is also given by Britishers concerning development, Information technology and many more. So we cannot blame them. Fact is our thinking is only to make money for that we cannot bother what is good or bad but we need it by any cost. So at last I want to say that culture is maintained by people not by any channels or programes its all our understanding.

The term culture is something which our parents got from our grandparents and which we are getting from our parents and today if we say that by seeing some filthy or some foreigner channel we are losing our culture then I would like to say that this is not the foreign channel which are destroying our culture but this is we people who are not able to adere to our culture firmly.

Friends the only aim of any channel is to entertain the mass and some channel shows this type of programmes to which if some youth watch, it work as an entertainment for them but if same youth watch that same thing with his family it appears vulgarity to them and if we say that if that some youths are watching the vulgar scenes with their family then it doesn't mean that they lacks culture or moral but it is so because they have good understanding between them.

Culture can't be destroyed by a mere foreign channel. It is our mind and duty to understand the our own culture. It obvious that we can get the knowlede of the whole world what the other country people are thinking of our culture. We also know that when vivekananda was allowed to tell on the subject called zero he has given the rite knowledge and culture of India to the world and the world has accepted it.

So telling that culture can be destroy by the foriegn culture is not very rite. Seeing the intresting thing on the foreign channel we can devlope more intresing thing. At the end if you don't know the culture of other how can you diffrenciate. So many evil thing are alredy present in our culture, first we have to delete that like caste system, reservation system etc. So telling about the others culture we must have to look on our own. It is the mind set that adopating foreign culture from channel only, we have now a day internet day we can connect ourself to the world and world can also connect with us.

My friends we INDIANS have a great culture and what happened in earlier times was when British entered India and astonished about our way of doing things we all were having a accepting attitude all good things every one in the country was happy and enough thins to live. Now I'm saying a fact that is the British person some higher level ranking wrote a letter to the vice Roy of Britain that I don't think we can control the Indians since they are following a excellent system which inhibits in their culture and every one have good knowledge the answer from the vice Roy was this destroy their culture and make them believe they are wrong and mix other way of doing things. Till now we are not aware because we INDIANS have a good heart of accepting every one thus unknowingly we think bad about our culture and support them. Build a view of critical thinking then you will understand. IN BBC whenever they are showing INDIA they always shows some slums or other bad events EG: when INDIA conducted common wealth games the news from BBC was this out of poverty INDIA have hosted common wealth games. And they were only showing the bad events like steps falling down etc as all you said before we have negative sides but why British have to hi light that and hiding good things.

Take example of women dress cord INDIAN women used to dress neatly now we start following western does does fashion require showing of sexual organs. My request to every one is that wherever you go stick to our culture learn good things from them but don't allow to flow the sand under our leg. People respect the one who follow their own culture.

According to my opinion, we cannot blame completely foreign channels for destroying our culture. There is something to learn from everything what we take from these depends on our wisdom. There are channels which are very useful for our education and there are some channels which brings out our hidden talents like axn etc and the cartoon channels are a boon for the children for improving their ideas and for their entertainment. But there are some channels which portray unethical culture. An adult can make a wise decision but this may not seen in the case of kids so there must be adult supervision on such channel which destroy our budding minds of kids as the childhood is the crucial time values of our culture should be learnt by every child as long as the parents and people around the child are responsive in carrying the culture then these channels will never effect our culture.

Its based on people and how they take it.

If something inapprophiate is seen, it is his/her duty to switch over and where that is not possible there is feature in probably in every TV sets "THE PARENTAL LOCK".

Hi we know India is underdeveloped country and we need to develop our country a lot. Youths have a major role to play on these. What I believe is there are some bad things on TV channels which are diverting the minds of youth and as a result they are not utilizing there talent fully or they giving much less than what is expected from them. At the same time youths need to understand what is good and what is bad.

To develop our country and to improve our culture work has to be done from both way (to do it in least time) I. E. Stopping bad channels as well as telling youth/children about it in loving manner. We can't force them because we are living in independent country. A team of dedicated youth is required to do the work and I am willing to participate.

Well, according to me a human being not only requires knowledge but also requires 'entertainment'. Now lets be a little truthful, we can't forever watch discovery, nat geo etc channels. We definitely need a break from our boring and monotonous lives. But I do agree to the fact that foreign channels are destroying our culture, but who is following it?Our nation's leaders (politicians) who are supposed to be examples of justice & truth are corrupted & filled with treachery & deceit. Our democracy stands for freedom of choice, so I guess every Indian has the freedom to choose whatever he or she likes. Now I'm pretty sure if given a choice most of us will prefer to watch '--x & the city' over animal planet. But its the children of our nation whose minds should be protected. Parents should take necessary steps like child locking certain channels. Nowadays even cartoon network shows cartoons of such violent nature that I feel even that should be prohibited. But in the end its a person's personal choice. We can't simply blame everything on the foreign channels.

And also along with the good things about these channels there are some bad things which can affect our youngsters or kids but it depends upon our nutrition and guidance because end of the time we ourselves have to inform them, when it is necessary, about each and every thing to make them clear about good and bad so that they can defend themselves without anybody's help.

According to me every thing has its both effect good and bad. The same is with foreign channels. It is the way from where we can know about the outer world and their culture and progress. Some more technologies are developed their which we don't know and can get information easily by foreign channels eg. Discovery, national geography etc.

Some entertaining channels are also there such as cartoons network.

Now the question remains about destroying our culture, definitely we can't blame them for it. It is our duty to decide what to take and what to not take. And these all rubbish things are followed by us without any concern which reduced the difference between foreign channels and local channels.

The solution is not blaming the channels but to make our mind clear and firm. And one more precaution we must take, is to prevent children's mind from getting damaged mentally by this channel and to teach them to differentiate the things in good and bad.
