Is our culture destroyed by modern era.

Do you know? What is modernization? The day by day changes that occur in our culture & customs. Is it? Yes. Earlier, the primitive people uses the barks & leaves of trees for covering their body & they have their own belief & tradition.

This is what we followed now a days? NO.

Different types of changes occurred by these days. Our dressing style changed. Is it destroying? It is only a part of change that occur in our life. This cannot be questioned by anyone. We Indians have the right to select what we should be. In the world of fast technology. Modernization is required. Without modernization we can't do anything for the development of country.

In my opinion Indian culture is not destroyed by modern era.

I don't think we indians are actually forgetting our culture a latest instance I want to share that our PM, Mr Narendra Modi went for foreign countries, as it was a tour a vast number of Indian visited where he arrived they just wanted to take a glimpse of him which shows that we indians have moral values and great respect for our culture as they have a feeling of someone who is going to represent India in foreign countries like Australia and America.

Furthermore I want to add with due respect my brother and sisters of India that in todays modern world we can't keep away the youth from advertisement, exposure of western outfits or anything which can be prove to alluring one.

Today our Culture is destroyed by modern era. Our Dress codes, great passion to fast foods & towards junk foods are the symptoms. Our speaking way towards elders has totally changed. Can you find any mistake from these simple 3 sentences. Films shows the actual life of citizens. Now, There is no dialogues in it. Only a single beep.

Hello friend.

According to me, we are slowly losing our traditional cultural values. We have such a glorious history. But nowadays youngsters are getting influence by the foreign culture and forgetting our rich cultural values. Decline of Indian culture not only to blame western culture but we are also responsible for this condition. We are not teaching our teenager our culture. But we are following western culture.

According to me, our culture is decaying but it has both bad and good impacts on our society.

GOOD EFFECTS are that it has abolished inequality, sati system, dowry system, caste system etc from our society. It has introduced equality in the society because of which nobody is treated as inferior and superior. It has introduced democracy, integrity etc in our society.

BAD EFFECTS are that it has changed our dressing style, our food habits and also our young generation no longer respect their elders. It has introduced corruption in our society and many other bad things that haS destroyed our culture.

Satyajeet Sahai Kautilya said: (Fri, Oct 17, 2014 10:23:54 PM)    
 
Hello friends! I went for a debate where i was given the same topic for the motion. Here, i would like to submit my speech.

'If you can't fly, then run;
If you can't run, then walk;
If you can't walk, then crawl;
But whatever you do, just keep moving forward.'

These lines of Martin Luther, according to me, have deviated Indian youth from their very own culture.

Good morning, esteemed panel of judges, distinguished audience and my fellow debaters. I, Satyajeet Sahai of Army Public School, stand before to you to voice my opinions for the motion of the topic, 'Indian Culture is losing its essence for the youth.'

Just like Adolf Hitler took to mass killings on the basis of Charles Darwin's theory 'The Survival of the Fittest', the Indian youth is also taking the famous lines of M. L. in a distorted way.

Moving forward doesn't mean doing away with our rich cultural heritage. Herein, I would like to emphasize that superstitions may have been a part of tradition, but have nothing to do with culture. The youth always confuses religion with culture and gets moved by the hot news, trending nowadays of the imposter sadhus and all. But, let me tell you Mr. And Ms. Youth, culture is the way of life, especially the arts, customs and institutions, of a particular group of people, whereas religion is a particular system based on beliefs, faith and worship.

Uppalapu Shrinivas, Indian mandolin maestro and composer of the classical Carnatic musical tradition, died just a month ago. Only a handful of people present here would know him. And if I ask about Yo Yo Honey Singh, most of my friends here would be well versed even with the taps of his newest album Desi Kalakaar. What does all this prove? We are aping western culture without being aware of the richness and variety of our own culture. Classical music is said to enhance cognitive development and reasoning.

Our immune system has given up due to our rush towards continental and fast food. The traditional spices that we run away from help in improving our health in tremendous ways. For instance, cinnamon can lower blood sugar, turmeric suppresses the growth of cancerous cells and the list goes on.

When speaking of food, then why not talk about fast? Observing fast is an age long tradition that is still being followed in India. Scientific studies reveal that observing fast helps improving our digestive system. But today's youth, which is getting more and more addicted to the worldly pleasures, does not see the value of such traditions.

Today, the dressing sense of the youth has westernized. Shorts and sleeveless dresses may appear classy and sassy to many. They don't understand the reason for our traditional clothes being the way they are. My friends, in a tropical country like ours, our traditional clothes are the best bet.

India was the name of a British colony whereas Bharat was a country of rich and ethical values. We have adopted India, but left Bharat. Also, from 'Pitaji' and 'Mataji' we've come down to 'Dad' and 'Mom'. Well, for youth that's going up.

Now, my final stand that I would like to take for my topic is about teacher student relation. We have forgotten the Guru-Shishya traditions and respect for our elders in this modern world. Where are the days of Eklavya gone? Now for all those Einsteins present here, nobody is asking for your thumbs. Your teachers just want the respect and the importance they deserve.

With this, due to the restricted time limit, I would like to conclude my speech standing for my words that Indian culture is losing its essence for the youth.

Of course I do agree with the statement and would say that now the culture has reached such a situation where there is no part left to follow them. Mainly it goes with the young generation.

I mean to say is that in today's world no teenage do likes to follow the dedicates and just want to keep with what they want which is really going to be result in a very harsh one.

'OUR CULTURE IS DECAYING', we indians are very simple, we just believe what we see and hear. But somehow this simplicity are affecting us in anyway. I agree that change is necessary but only when it can maintain the original identity.

Indian culture is so rich and diverse that it cannot easily decay with any foreign culture whether it is western or eastern. But yeah we are getting very much influenced day by day from foreign cultures. As we can see many 'the' day have come ex- valentines day, teddy day, friendship day etc etc, where people waste a lot of time and money.

People have also changed the basic meaning of our traditional festivals. Earlier In Diwali diyas were burnt but now days people just lighten up electric and colourful lights.

In case of eating habit we have also adapted in very wrong way. Kids and children eat a lot of junk food. Adults started drinking and smoking just because of being influenced from foreign culture. I am not saying change is bad and adapting from foreign culture is bad, but there should be some limit, so that essence and flavour of every indians just don't get lost.

Hi friends. I'm Bhuvana.

According to my point of view Indian culture is not decaying fully. It is in youth's hand to preserve our culture or to destroy them. As people's are likely to be modern the correct impact of western culture. Like having food, dressing style etc.

Nowadays people need to be modern fashion so they prefer to western culture which obviously affect our culture that nobody knows about that. So I conclude that preferring western culture is good. As somebody says " too much of anything is better than nothing". We have to consider our our culture too. We are all proud to say we are Indian so follow our culture.

As I said youngsters are milestones to any thing so we people want follow our culture.

Thank you.

Hai friends,

First of all, I would like to remind you that INDIA is our motherland. According to my view, India is the origin of culture. The culture came into existence by the experience of our ancestors. Our ancestors considered that as a sacred thing and started to practice it efficiently. Our culture never took anything from foreign countries. The way of living with mankind has been elaborately discussed in the holy books like thirukkural etc. These holy books, our everlasting monuments, incomparable sculptures, magnificent temples are the precious gifts from our land. It is our duty to preserve them. But it sounds gloomy that we have forgotten everything within a minute and we have switched on to some other culture. May be we are addicted to the foreign culture because of the implementation of their education system in our country and even because of our grace towards them. I agree that all the foreign cultures are good but it depends upon us how we take up that culture. If we take only the good things from others and follow it, then we will be the winners. I can assure that because of other cultures our culture cannot be decayed forever.

And now, coming to the present moment this is not the end. And moreover END means effort never dies. So friends let's start preserving our culture from this moment.

We are adopting & we want to adopting more n more western culture & due to this we are divert. Girls cloth are also being shorter day to day, pavitra rakhi festival that, this type of cloth are not in our culture.

After reading all the viewpoints mentioned here, I feel that there were evils in the Indian Society such as issues related to girl child abortions, deprived education, early marriage, sati, pardah, casteism, so on and so forth. But now with time, our society has become educated and awaken to these deep rooted problems. We have emerged with better understanding, education and sensible thinking. We have absorbed all the good that western culture had to offer. Now we should STOP. Enough has been taken from them. We have to draw a line somewhere. We should not adopt it blindly. Don't let Western culture or so called Modernization rule our mind.

Dear friends,

At present we are tying to imitate what the foreign countries are performing. We get just caught up in these and we spoil our rich tradition and culture. As we all know our's is a vast and secular motherland, with an array of culture, traditions believes& customs. As viewing this from my eyes I wish if we could inculcate the good methods of other nations instead of copying all what they does. Try to get rid of the bad ones and save our rich tradition, for our tradition makes what we are-they tells us our past.

If we want to imitate the Western culture, it should be done more in the Healthcare and Education system and Women security matters, than in the Cultural values and traditions of our forefathers. Indian Culture is not decaying as much as it is dissolving in the Western Culture.

I think adopting western culture is not at all the problem. The problem starts when we are adopting bad things from them. Like many people just copy the lifestyles of western people without understanding what actually it is. Indian youth fails to understand the difference between modernisation and westernisation. Just by wearing jeans and tops and western dresses doesn't mean that we are modernising. Modernisation starts when instead of changing the dressing sense we start changing our mindset.

I think 'change is the rule of nature' and the change in lifestyle and habits should also be permissible to an extent till where we do not need to leave our original roots.

We have debates over development, we compare ourselves with US. But we forget that US is a different continent with different climatic conditions and differently build civilizations. So we are not bound to match up with their dressing sense and cultural ethos. Its good to change a bit but the change should be bounded such that our grounds remain original. If we completely deny to change then that will also be not good because if we want a India to be a developed country we have to change our ethos somehow like women inequality, child marriage, male supremacy. Only these changes will lead us towards development.

India's tangible and intangible cultural heritage is extremely diverse, rich and ancient. The value of the tangible heritage of monuments, temples and other works of art such as paintings, sculptures and handicrafts has been acknowledged and efforts are being made to restore, maintain and conserve these cultural expressions.

However, the less visible forms of cultural heritage, pertaining to oral traditions, aesthetic and religious beliefs, rituals and festivals, arts, music, folk traditions, dances, theater forms, performing arts and narrative styles of storytelling have not, until recently, received much attention. The paper makes a critical assessment of the necessity, importance and significance of protecting this cultural heritage.

It then addresses several issues related to the preservation and conservation of India's intangible cultural heritage. Lastly, it suggests ways and means to preserve, safeguard, maintain and strengthen India's rich and diverse, multi-cultural, multi-linguistic cultural heritage so that it remains a vibrant, dynamic and living part of community life.

Culture is nothing but leading our life in a more systematic manner, which you adopt from our ancestors and Indian culture is proved to be more better than others.

Hello, my friends.

India is a diverse country, where we can find many religions, culture as it has all kind of people. So it is a secular country. No matter we respect other country's culture but at the same time we should not let our culture down. In order to make Indians to exist, we have to save our culture first. If you save your culture, culture will save you.

I don't say that everyone has to follow his own culture, if you find that there are some pros in another culture, then use them and enhance your own culture. Thus a good culture is not only following things but also adopting good points from other culture. So with this both individual as well as country's culture can develop in more prosperous way.

A country is known by its culture, in western countries our diverse culture is praised and appreciated so why we forget it ? We should be proud that we live in such a country with rich culture and traditions, so why not to stick with it?

I am a different Indian, I'm a Native American Indian and our culture was ruined when the Europeans came over and started taking the land to "civilize and develop". That was just the beginning of the fall of the western world. They wanted to "educate" and ruin a culture because they didn't feel they knew how to do things. The Indians tried to live a peaceful existence with one another, to respect human race, to respect nature. The problem with today's world is everyone is a lover of self than lover of others. America use to be founded on God, but most of what we tolerate as a nation now is corrupted and immoral. Look at the women for an example.

There is no shame. There use to be a time when only a husband would see his wife, now anyone in public can see his wife. What was viewed in the marriage bedroom is now a public show. That is a sad crime! Not only that they are now starting on the young children. They are desensitizing them so much that by time their generation grows up they will be more sexual and disrespectful than this generation. This time in life is about money, fame, power and self. The Western world has adopted everything that is immorally wrong as right and what is right as wrong. If you stand against it you are a minority now. It wasn't always so!

Of course it is as we all know agreed that our culture is going down in the dumps. Many examples are there - earlier in the festival of lights which of course you know is Diwali there was a tradition of lighting lamps or dia which is now being replaced by putting up colourful lights, people used to meet each other and had time to visit their parents but now the only way of connection is the use of technology products and many more. Culture which also helps to unite us in a way is being forgotten. So It's my humble request to all of you to not get yourselves mixed up in development so much that you forget the culture Indians have been following.

And like to be on their own as in west. But we are not realizing our richness of family with loved ones.

Basically our culture is decaying through mainstream movies in Bollywood like adopting the adult stars from the west and being supported and encouraged by the media and these acts will mentally or morally affect psyche of people, spoiling our country's name.

I Think, culture is a thing which shows our strength that how much potential we have to adopt a new thing most of the time change play a very decisive role to one's development I would like all time appreciate those things which is good for your development and also as we all know that western culture is known as a rename of all type of development and large group of people not only in India as well as the whole world would like to adopt that one and nothing is wrong with it because one can't stay very long on behalf of his own culture whenever he will not get anything of that. Culture defines our relation, behavior and attitude towards self, family society and place we are living. Now our place has got its own identity and spectra of thoughts, ideas, living style and history and all this undoubtedly make a strong base for culture.

Now in India my understanding of culture is to respect elders, love fellow beings and lend a helping hand to every needy and perform the rituals and to surprise I find every society having the same culture.

By listening to your thoughts, above culture is understood more in terms of physical and materialistic approach. Culture is more defined in terms of our attachments to our roots, the way our attitude is towards life, our understanding, acceptance with other cultures and the respect we pay to every other thing that we don't follow and perform in our culture. For example. A person write a statement in his wall that "please don't spit there" to protect his wall or to keep clean his wall. But Indian people don't think about his statement, and start doing this bad activity because they have't got tolerance capacity, they thought that we are perfect and powerful in this world.

Actually, I don't think the Indian culture has been completely 'crushed' and 'decayed' from the western culture. Great ideas like-Democracy, Liberty, fraternity, rationality had their advent in the western culture that have surely proved good for India and boosted.

Her strength. For most of the Indian public perception, western culture is just a set of western clothes, discos, parties and other things that are 'hostile to morality', but in reality western culture totally embodies another realm as opposed to the popular view. One shouldn't say it straightaway that bikinis, jeans, pornography is all that western culture offers us before having, at least, a brief study about the western culture that it rightfully deserves with dignity. Actually western culture is based on rationality and respect for the human life. Even Indian culture has its evils. Did anyone even mentioned discrimination on caste while mention 'greatness of Indian culture'? Isn't that an inherent problem of Indian Culture?

And let us remind that such evils were prevalent in the society in the past in the forms of brutal rituals like sati, child marriage etc that were later abolished by the British. The latter is a clear example of esteem that western society gives to the human life, something that is clearly evident in the statistics of life expectancy in some western countries. Although western culture also has its demerits but it doesn't makes sense just to make mockery of it saying 'its polluting our culture'.

Is why they running after the western culture. Some western cloths are very sticky like jeans which is harmful for some secret body parts it makes slower speed of circulation of blood and makes men/women uncomfortable in sitting. And the western food is not healthy for human but the youths like taste of western food.

Hello Friends,

Culture is certainly not decaying. In India we call adoption of western culture as decay of our own culture. But whatever we are adopting is totally for the convenience of the work we do. Lets take example of women police, she has to be active and fast in her work. Hence shirt-pant is the best uniform which will prove convenient for her. Thus, culture can be best defined as running water i.e. to adopt newer changes and continue its flow. If culture sticks to its place like stagnant water, its obvious that people will run away from the decaying and offensive smelling pond. Thus, our culture is on a right path and its modernization should not be taken as its decay.

Our culture is decaying.

In this discussion many of my friends said that its because of adoption of western culture. How can we say like that? My eldest sister is working as a nurse in UK. When she went to UK for the first time she took churidars and long tops for jeans. But her friends said to wear jean. But after all when she is in India she use only saree and churidar. And she says that in the church even kids never wear jean. They use to wear decent dress. But the ones in Indian culture wear these dresses. Then how can we say that?

And culture doesn't mean the dress code. Its only an element.

Recently, men were blamed about their thoughts towards women. It was said that though women wears mini skirts, mini frocks, etc men's thoughts towards women should be positive. , but I hear by question that how can men can't feel the heat when they are exposed to a fire lamp.

But nowadays it is not so young generation is very easily attracted by fake values and they don't have moral values. They have completely adopted western culture and if some don't like they still follow their peers in order to be "cool" because they think if they don't follow them they are sometimes less noticed.

According to my view our culture is not decaying. Our culture it is not a resource, its a way of representation of our Indians. Only in urban areas students and may be some other people might be fallowing that. The persons who fallowing western countries are not the persons who dis-respectable to our Indian culture. They respect our mother country, they respects our ethics, they respects our Indian dressing ways. For example the person who following western culture does not marry a Indian women in jeans and t shirt. He fallows the Indian dressing way during his marriage.

Culture means way of living, way of loving, way of treating, way of dressing, way of receiving, way of sharing, way of respect towards human values.

But clearly I will say that the future of our culture depends on our Indian people only. If we not teach the Indian culture to further generations means, definitely its a extinct.

Our culture received so many compliments even from monarchs, that means it is a great valuable that we have try to follow it.

It is very sad to hear the news that "our culture is spoiling" from our Indians mouths. I'm not giving any advice's but one should change and then he/she has to change others. The person who gave this topic will he ask his/her daughter/son to not follow any culture or any trend or else if he/she asks will they listen to them ? no. ! Because it depends on the situations and climatic conditions he/she grows in an area.

If a wealthy persons son/daughter puts a nice dress, but he won't be kept quite he forces his friend to ask that persons father to buy the same dress. This completely depends on the behaviour of their parents because seeing them only we can learn any things whether it is good or bad. So parents should make their children to listen to them. And now-a-days youth is habituated in going pubs which are highly western cultured. So every parent should take initiation and take care of the children. "Bring the lost glory of our culture".

I always thought Indians were the most welcoming people on earth, with a beautiful culture, but now I'm trying to live here, all the doors close.

I step away from all my western comfort, believes and behavior, I dress proper, and am respectful to all people and their culture and religions.

But still, I will never be accepted.

Still people will always stare at me, make me feel uncomfortable, rip me off, and see me as a dollar sign.

I will never say our culture is better.
But living here, I start to wonder what are the advantages of Indian culture.

I'm writing an research over it. So please Indians, what are the advantages or your culture.

And why are you so afraid we westerners are spoiling it?
Is it not because of money, that you are letting go your values?
And because honestly, some things could be going better in this country.
And think of it, are you family values not holding you back from developing?

This caused due to decaying of our Indian culture. Every body is a now accepting the western culture.

So, we have to be aware of that from now.

Always give respect to your culture first then the other.

According to the great philosopher ALBERT TOYNBEAN "IF THE WORLD CIVILIZATION WOULD HAVE TO EXIST THEY WILL HAVE TO LOOK LIKE THE INDIAN WAY". So its really a matter of shame on our part that when the western people are greedy to imbibe our culture we Indian are looking towards their culture. "INDIA IS A LAND OF SPIRITUALITY, A LAND OF CULTURE"IT IS A LAND OF MIXTURE OF SHANKARACHARYAS INTELLECT, BUDHHAS HEART AND SWAMI VIVEKANANDA'S LOVE, SPIRIT, DEDICATION AND DEVOTION". Its high time for Indians' to boast their culture, their very loving and caring "MATRIBHUMI". INDIA.

Friends, in my opinion our culture is not decaying but we are forgetting and going against in our culture.

We can say that westerns had done good and bad things, example:.

They had abolished daury, etc. Things but they had changed our eating habits. They are not the main and only reason of getting less Indian culture.

My dear friends I agree that our culture is decaying but instead of decaying we can say that we are turning ourselves over a new leaf. Nowadays people have left the habit of herds, they do whatever looks good to them.

There are many cultural things which we had and we are trying to abolish.

:SATI PRATHA-we have abolished it.
:Under age marriage cases have also reduced.
:Instead of veil or yashmak women are moving freely here and there.
:Dowry has also reduced to certain level.

By just thinking that girls are wearing shorts and some boys are addicted to boozing, we can not say that our culture is decaying. Today also there are many people who are morally and culturally good. In my opinion, our culture is not decaying but we have given it a new definition according to the changing ambiance.

In 1836, LORD MACULAY'S said.

"I Traveled across the length and breadth of INDIA end I have not seen one person beggar who is thief such a wealth I have seen in this country, such a high moral values, people of such a caliber THAT I DO NOT THINK WE WOULD EVER CONQUER THIS COUNTRY Unless we break a very back bone of this nation which is her spiritual and cultural heritage. I propose that we replace their ancient culture, education, language with ours. ".

What a real truth he said at the time of 1836,

And they achieved, still they are going on achieving, no end for that.

In 2days life any one speaking TELUGU, HINDI with out an ENGLISH words. No no way. Such a way they habituated us.

I agree that we have some advantages from their culture, but most of their culture has disadvantages. Our guys attracting towards disadvantages. They don't want advantages. !

STILL WE PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN.
