You know what our culture and tradition should decay fast. !, you know why because you guys should understand that we are living in Kali Yug, and the faster we lose our culture and traditions the more we follow Western culture, cause there is no other culture in this world that tells dharma and how to live life and at last spirituality (because this the ultimate and final stage every human being goes), people are becoming more foolish and thinking more scientifically, and question whether god is there or not (the question is a good thing), but the conclusion is not the way. It's so stupid that our ancestors experienced gods and stuff and yet question whether Ramayana and Mahabharata even existed (people are talking about this for thousands of years) and yet here we are just saying it never happened, it's the nation's history. To be honest, people should be lost hope in God and just believe that he's not real so that people can do more Adharma and anyway, perform adultery, wear revealing clothes, murder, rape, hurt someone with unsensible world's and speeches, more desires/pleasures, greediness, selfishness, lust, premarital sex, divorce remarriage again divorce remarriage, getting more blind and not thinking why casts are created, no respect to elders, no dignity and discipline (eg: hairstyles, way of clothing, way of talking to others), defying laws of nature, giving more importance to showoffs and fashions and digital slaves (the most useless things in the world), I'm 19yrs old and it hurts me to see India in position there the basic problems. But losing faith in dharma and God leads to more destruction and this Yuga ends fast so that a lot of people won't suffer but don't you people forget one thing everything you do and every choice you take has a bigger consequence to and people around you don't forget that. We need to take few things from the western for eg: cleanliness, strict rules, heavy fines and penalty and punishments nothing else. And one more do not ever make your parents feel sad or bad cause your going to suffer in future and will face painful consequences Jai Bharat.

Hello everyone.

My name is Rajdeep Kumar.

Today we're going to discuss our culture is decaying.

Yes, nowadays Our culture is decaying day by day because of Western influences I don't say Western is not good.

We can see around us many things is changing because of westernization.

1. Like people don't like live in a joints family.

2. We can see mostly children doesn't like to play outdoor games like kho kho kabaddi hickey they prefer video game or indoor games.

3. Youth attract Western clothes like jeans pants etc they are forgetting Indian culture dress.

4. Also, most of the girls doesn't like saree etc they like Western clothes like jeans and small dress.

Conclusion:- in my opinion, nowadays Our culture is decaying day by day because of westernization. I don't say Western culture is not good but our Indian culture is one of the best cultures in the world we should not forget it.

So, I would like to say our Indian culture is the best.

Thank you, everyone.

Jai Hind.

Yes, you all are somewhere right.

I hane another regard that is slowly Indian people are moving towards west culture. I am not saying that western culture is bad but it's our duty to save or to conserve our Indian culture also and we must think about that. Nowadays, people's are addicted to mobile phones, TV, and different modern gadgets which had become the main reason for that people are forgotten their culture.

Etc they only prefer video games, indoor games. Etc youth attracted western clothes like Jean's, coat, hoodies. Etc it seems that girls have forgotten to wear saree, suits.

First of all, we need to draw a line between Westernization and modernization.

Innovation in technology, healthcare, arts, politics, economy is essential for a civilization's growth. West is innovating themselves while we are copying them and ignoring our own cultural development naturally our culture will decay over time. Pride in our laziness. I am not a fan of keeping all traditions we need to change according to time I only suggest being creative without forgetting our roots then again it's a personal choice we need to respect that. If a person wearing western clothes or Chinese or Indian clothes or any other clothes or any self-designed or even naked I won't mind as long as they try to restrict my freedom of choice western blind believers try to judge others, that attitude needs to be changed.

Hello everyone,

Our topic is our culture is decaying.

In my opinion, it is has declined but not completely we have adopted western culture like wearing cloth, listening to the song and also in term of living we prefer nucleus family but we have not lost completely today many people do pray and if they are going to start new work they do worship of god and greet the elder and also we celebrate many festivals like Holi, Diwali and Dussehra. At last, I want to say you adopt new culture but do not leave new culture.

Hello Everyone,

We are known for our moral culture but in the modern age, our culture is going to match the foreign culture. There is no respect. No respect for our family as well as our society. Before society and family are main. Everyone respects it. Students have no Discipline. To get honour is the main moto before but today this is not seen anywhere. No moral dignity between us. So, I think our moral has changed in the hateful culture. Our culture is decaying. We should learn about our moral culture.

Yes, I agree that our culture is decaying because of westernisation. People who are saying that there were many problems as sati pratha, child marriage etc. Firstly, I want to clear one point that, this type of prathas are only 200-300 years old. Our culture is so vast when you once come to know more about our culture, you get to know many such things which we are practising is not in our culture.

So, I would end by saying that if some parathas have a negative impact on our society so change it not forget or blame our whole culture.

Actually all cultures are decaying, west is associated with capitalism so we often mistake capitalist culture with westernization & cultural decay. Few examples to make things clear:

🎈Exposing dresses (for promoting gym, fitness, tattoo, waxing, dermapolish, beauty & cosmetic products, etc businesses).

🎈Privacy & freedom (for promoting porn, drugs, party culture, bars, unethical sex, family divide causing the need for a myriad of separate products like personal tv, bedroom, vehicle, etc & medical & counseling business for countering side effects). Also to be noted unrestricted & indifferent freedom cause violence so opens up scope for security, judiciary business & populism.

🎈Even democracy is just a fancy name of mobocracy & results in wastage of time and resources for elections. It also forces politics to focus more on short term goals rather than real deeper issues. Democracy values more on quantity than quality.

🎈Feminism & women empowerment is a conspiracy to steal women from men with lesser physical resources and reserving them for elite men. Also, the mental distortion of female minds through constant exposure to an image of the hypothetical ideal male makes them more inclined towards a few elite men that can afford to look & live like a hypothetical alpha male.

🎈Both parents working & busy in work give the opportunity to tech cos to distort & program children in a way favorable for capitalism.

🎈Consumerism, opulence, excessive choices, ostentation, celebrity culture, money worship, personality advertising. All are simply intended to increase businesses & money movement.

🎈Education (focused on raising aspirations & expectations, developing taste for brands, brainwashing with techno-optimism so that careless consumption cycle can go on in false belief of existence of solutions & remedies, brainwashing & creating slaves for fueling capitalist culture who find pride in serving & promoting greed in exchange of money which they can use for proving superiority & trigger chain reaction of chasing uncertain goals in society).

No, I can't say that our culture is decaying completely. We can say that we are upgrading and developing. If we look in ancient time some culture should be stopped as Sati pratha, Johri pratha, Bal vivah etc. But I accept that we are attracting western culture because it seems like freedom, modern and advance that's why people are attracting there. But still, Some people have patriotism. They keep remain our culture and doing forward a future generation. Our culture is in some places.

So in my point of view that we are upgraded and developed. It is necessary for our culture.

Obviously it is true that we had witnessed a lot of changes in our own culture in these days. Those changes have both positive and negative effects. There are diverse cultures which are changing from person to person, it depends on their lifestyle. In most of the times our character defines our culture. In my opinion there is no need for judging anyone's culture or personality, it is better to be diverse than being the same. So, our culture is not at all decaying, it's changing.

Hi everyone,

To start with, I wonder how many of us actually spent time understanding the depth of our culture, to even judge if its even decaying or not.

Yes, we do have the freedom to choose and adapt to what is suitable for us, but don't you think we deserve to know the reason or in other words, the science behind every tradition and culture, as we term it?

Each place or state or district in our nation has its own beautiful tradition. Least do we realise the science and benefits of it? Every tradition and culture is designed on the bases of the land, climate/season, crops grown etc. But for the people to strongly believe it. They created stories so we connect to these traditions religiously.

As the youth of current times, we are not told the reasons why or the science behind every ritual or tradition, therefore, we question on why to follow them and refuse to follow them too!

I strongly believe we need to be understood about our land and cultures in more depth so we wholeheartedly choose to follow it than being imposed to follow it.

We are blessed with the most beautiful nation. Let us all together preserve its beauty with a genuine heart.

Thank you.

Hello Friend,

Actually, we are becoming too much highly passionate about all our activities, Its cause of modern technologies not such a country like the USA or any developed country. As the compared countries are highly incremental developing related to our country and due to help of the technology get understanding the fact. And indeed we are willing to adopt or do the such in our society or activities. I don't know if living in a village in West Bengal I can really not understanding if any cultures are decaying. As there all the culture of any religion, we celebrate with jolly. Not only that the culture of wear dress, painting, Drama play in everywhere I personally believe the existence of culture.

However, For the whole nation, I would suggest to blew with upcoming culture from anywhere welcome with a good manner so that everybody will be familiar with that otherwise regret it.

Hi, everyone.

I agree that our culture is decaying because we neglect our culture and tradition and we are not following it. Now we are adopting the western culture blindly without knowing whether it is good or bad. We have adopted the western culture like live together, open relationship and having sex before marriage which is not good for our society and our children. Adopting these culture is responsible for increasing the crime rate.

If we want to live happily, we have to bring our culture back. We should make awareness program so that people can understand the greatness of our culture and tradition. We should respect and follow our culture. And I am not saying that we should not adopt the western culture, but we should respect their culture and should accept their culture only if that is good for our society.

Hi everyone,

I would like to add few points on "Indian culture is decaying". Well, we all have grown up seeing our customs and enjoying our traditions like festivals, marriages and even few superstitions. Our culture is well placed and protected in our blood. However, we get to experience much more of diverse cultures nowadays due to sources like media, social gatherings, international competitions and so on. We need to catch up with the growing India.

There are many more things to see outside our culture which spread positiveness and inspiration among the youth of the society. There is no harm in welcoming few legitimate customs which can enhance our well being, I suppose. Thus, I would say that instead of arguing on protecting our culture and integrity, let us embrace the good things from various cultures while respecting our own heritage.

Thank You.

India is also regarded as Vishva Guru. With the changing times, India is becoming influenced by western culture. Old age, home living, relationships, same-sex marriages, child pregnancy are all the result of western influence. We must adopt good think from the western culture but we should not forget our roots.

I don't think culture decays, it actually improvises and I think our culture is in no way better than others except for the zero. Oh! come on guys many people in this world gave science their contributions but that doesn't judge their culture. Here culture actually refers to traditions and customs followed by us. In America, the divorce rate is 40% and in India, it is 1% but, it doesn't mean that married people in India are happy, they (mostly women) adjust for their children and also they are afraid of society. We have dowry system, even now in many rural places child marriages are happening. Coming to our ancient India, we forget that there is even Sati. Even after independence 40 cases were discovered on Sati, god knows how many were not known to the jurisdiction. Arranged marriages where mama and papa see the girl and approve her as if she is a broomstick checked if its incorrect condition before using it. Then the boy marries her mostly without even knowing her likes and dislikes, opinions. So, finally I just want to repeat what Dalai Lama said.

If we want to talk about the culture we must talk about the people. People these days have become more self centred, vain, unsympathetic to others and extremely selfish. The younger generation is only concerned about getting more likes on their next selfie or getting more followers on Facebook. It has become a constant need to project a positive image of oneself on social media. Everyone these days seem to imagine themselves as some kind of a mini celebrity, taking images of mundane things like what they are doing, what they are eating, where they are going, how they feel and posting it on social media. I mean really nobody cares because everyone is busy publishing their own daily lives. These days you visit any major landmark or tourist place you will see hordes of people taking selfies in front of places of interest and uploading these photos on social media. Their only concern seems to be to show other people that they were there and had fun. Meanwhile nobody seems to really care about or enjoy the natural beauty or historical and cultural significance of the place. These days everyone wants to be rich and famous and there is a general feeling that if other people are not talking about you somewhere someplace than you are just not doing it right. You talk with any person and the only thing they want to talk about is themselves, about how good they are, always trying to establish the fact that they are somewhat above you. While walking the streets you see people dressed up in the latest fashion apparel wearing a stern expression on their faces, all the while constantly trying to get other people to look at them, admire them and give them attention. This extreme self obsession, shameless self promotion and selfishness has made people extremely unsympathetic and insensitive to others. Everybody seems to think that they are somewhat better than others in terms of looks, character and personality and that they are exceptional. This inflated perception of oneself has created a situation where nobody really likes anyone anymore because everybody thinks they are better than the rest. This has devastated relationships as people are finding it really hard to maintain friendships, family relationships or even marriages. The human bonding that is the hallmark of a vibrant culture and a healthy society is steadily evaporating. And since people don't really like each other and don't want to come together and work in groups they have less civic engagement and lower political participation than any previous group. There are no healthy public discussions only arguments and labelling. Hence we find the public to be silent about the various issues that are affecting our country, our society, and our family.

I think our culture has decayed far beyond recognition - we talk about respect but its just talk. We don't respect women - we rape them, destroy their spirit and ambitions by getting them married at an early age and make them serve a man. We don't respect children - we manipulate them and destroy their childhood by faulty education system and unrealistic expectations. We don't respect our elders - we destroy their peaceful last years by our greed for the inheritance. We don't respect our country - because we destroy it in the name of caste, religion, progress (destroying the coveted nature). We don't respect our rivers - because in the name of culture and rituals we destroy its essence and purity. We don't respect our religion - because we manipulate the very nature of 'global religion' - we name other religions as the aggressors and try to twist our own beliefs.

I don't feel that our culture is decaying. Yes, it is changing but for good. People now have their own choice, they are able to do things which we were not able to do before. The doping of Indian culture with western our European culture in a good manner is not at all bad. Now, we are free and still Indian. The culture is not decaying us it is just bringing a few changes that our leading us to the top. We are now on the top posts of the world only because we are able to interact that we didn't use to do earlier. This change which is present in all of us is just because of the few changes that came because of western culture. Women are on top because we changed the thinking that women are just good as housewives only.

I'm not insulting our culture but just acknowledging that the changes that came in our culture are good and are not decaying but making it more beautiful. That is why India is the fastest growing country in the world.

Thank you.

My point of view, states that Indian culture is not decaying. Our culture taught us to bow in front of elders as a sign of respect. To treat our guests with respect ' athithi devo Bava' to help the poor and needy. To chant God's name and meditate in silence. I do believe blend of Indian and western culture is good because now I can see woman going for education, they are just not confine to kitchen. Equal respect for human beings irrespective of caste greed and gender. Freedom in thoughts is also important. Dressing sense never really matters. Rightly said never judge a book by its cover so even a person with western dress might have respect for his homeland. It's not always the outward appearance but the inside you which matters by your thoughts words and actions. There may be people who are decaying it but they are not necessarily the ones with broad minded thoughts.

Firstly, I welcome you all.

It is our only culture who welcomes every single person to openly share his thoughts, and makes changes for themselves according to his/her own comfort. It is only our culture who taught to bow down to our elders. And it is our culture which says do change if the change is good for you and for society. And it is our culture who says to change a society you have to change yourself irst, on your mind level. Swami Vivekananda says" for you own and nation growth you have to adopt Indian culture but also have to learn from Western how they open in their thoughts, decisions, innovations, and in equality". So clothes and web are not decaying our culture, our culture depends on our own thoughts and who we really are.

I feel its a question of changing behavior of the average person in our society. These days people have become more selfish and there is a tremendous lack of empathy for other people, for the society. Back in old days people fought to protect their family, country and god. These days its just total and absolute addiction to entertainment and fun seeking activities and temporary gratification of senses. I have nothing against all of this, but for entertainment and fun to become the sole focus of living, that's what is disturbing. Another worrying trend is that these days people in general just can't seem to get along with each other. It seems that stress and tension and quarreling over insignificant issues has become a constant factor in the daily life of the average person. As a direct result of this people are now more distant and divided from each other and more self-centered. People prefer online communication more via internet/mobile than real face to face communication. The human bonding that is the adhesive of a strong and healthy society is fast evaporating. I feel people should wake up to the fact they are being distracted by endless entertainment and divided by petty quarrels. All of this may sound negative bit I feel this is what is actually happening and this is certainly not our way of living and definitely not our culture.

Yes, Our culture is DECAYING. I still remember the days when we were first introduced to Television. A popular serial "Hum Log" used to be aired. I was still a kid in class 4th or 5th. I remember most characters wore traditional clothes except for "Nanhe" a young boy. We idolised him started wearing jeans instead of kurta pyjama. Congratulations, Culture erosion had just begun. We took pride in learning English, started ignoring Sanskrit, as it was our optional language till 9th. We chose to educate our kids in convent schools and Kendriya Vidyalaya remained with government employees. There's nothing bad in updating oneself technically but aping the west is one should strongly despise. We should remember that our roots teach brotherhood and love not greed and lust. All that west has taught us is to compete against each other and stoop low to reach the bottomless pit of deceit and betrayals. We could revive our culture by doing small things like saying name with hands folded in prayer and touch feet of elders and gurus. We use Hindi as much as possible. Visit temples as frequently as possible. Teach our kids to bow low in respect and not reach so high is life so that when time comes we are not bound to stay at elderly homes and our last rites conducted by people we don't even know.

No, I don't think so. Culture is something that must and will change with generations. Just because it changes doesn't mean its decaying. You see people do things that bring comfort and increases their well-being. Back in those days, people used to wear this and sarees. But in today's generation is wearing jeans and skirts. It is because they are more comfortable to work with, takes less time to wear, easier to maintain and also have the ability to hold stuff (pockets). Now do this and sarees are worn in functions as they are more elegant.

The argument that "children don't respect their parents nowadays, they watch tv whole day" are from a point of view when they (parents) were kids. I am pretty sure that they have also got such comments from their parents (this is called juvenile). Yes, it is true that we are becoming more nuclear families, but it is because we have enough resources to live independent.

If you see countries like Japan they are more cultured and orthodox than us but have embraced western technology and fashion more than us (in fact they pioneered in technology).

So what I say is embrace what is good and leave what is bad. Develop our culture guys and girls :).

On this day we gained independence but I here stand with a question, have you seen any person to wear a dress that resembles our own Indian culture?
According to me, I have seen the people talk about everything else except the importance of this day. The people who have supported westernization I am not offending them but I ask them all a single question. "Was it possible for us to get westernized if the British would not have given us independence or the freedom fighters like Gandhi or Netaji had not taken any action?".

Dear readers,

Do you want to know the harsh truth why CULTURE is decaying? The answer is simple, IGNORANCE. The citizens of India are ignorant. The kids of generations are ignorant. I see many kids these days who use cheap, vulgar words to call their friends.

I see kids calling their friend's in bad words. The kids don't even know what comes out their mouth. They dye to colour their hair red, blue and yellow.

You would amaze to know how much kids idolize movie stars. They engage in silly fights, for instance, they fight over movie stars,

Friend 1:- Salman is best, Bhai acting is worth oscar.

Friend 2 :- no, dude Salman sucks, SRK movies blockbuster!.

In terms of fashion, girls kill it. I mean really kill it. They get inspired by Hollywood movie stars walking red carpets.

Our country has protected and respected all the philosophy and knowledge of our culture, no matter how many ever countries conspired to destroy the precious knowledge and tried to impose their culture on us.

I agree with a fact that some generation particularly youths are more attracted towards Western culture.

Hi, friends.

According to me, our culture is decaying. In our day to day life, we see people saying that western culture is so "advanced". We also see people saying that we must always follow the western culture but according to me do we ever see those people follow it themselves? I think not. Whenever I go out of my house the one thing I always notice in the streets is the amount of garbage which is spread on the streets. Now this is not an example of westernization. It is true that western people are much more concerned about cleanliness. There is no harm in following the culture of other nations but if we want to follow it we must do it sincerely. Our forefathers were not like us. They always maintained the cleanliness because of their clear minds or some or the other superstitions. Nowadays the people of our nation have become more rich, more powerful, and more blind to all the moral values. Therefore they do what they want to do and follow their own minds without thinking about the consequences. Therefore I conclude that our culture is decaying and it will certainly decay if we don't take the appropriate measures to stop it.

Dear readers,

People are often misguided in many ways. I like not to speak about culture but universal moral values that should be adopted by everyone. These moral values are highlighted key aspects of any religion. From these religion stems culture that ensures that right pathway in which a person guided to maintain a happy life and ensures that it does not conflict with other's happiness. These generation's kids adopt Western influence because they it gives them freedom and grants them other happiness which is in conflict with the moral values. Drug abuse, smuggling, uncontrolled lust, greed, gluttony, swindling, murder, betrayal and there is plenty more to say here that goes on in this generation. The world has ultimately become corrupt and nasty. This is not because of westernization nor globalization. Believe me this nothing with them but with ourselves. It depends on upon us, individual. We must to an understanding that we are responsible for our actions and we are accounted for its consequences. The moral values guide us to if not ideal but at least a normal life deprived most of the sins we commit. I urge all brothers and sisters to think about the logical and ethical way of living. We can finally come to Peace if we just follow what's good. Believe me, people are idiotic, they need to guide properly or else its chaos. That's the problem.

I strongly believe that adopting western culture is not a sin, in fact, I must say that it is respecting other countries culture along with your own.

If I m not wrong then I must say men must wear kurta pyjama where ever they go if they are so much into their culture, in fact, they should stop wearing coats and wear traditional dhoti Punjabi and roam in the streets. Our Indian culture is beautiful and is respected by all of us wearing a western cloth is all up to the people's choice. And ya we think that parents feel proud that their children are adopting the western culture and forgetting the Indian culture I will say no to it they are happy that their children are balancing both cultures. I live in QATAR near DUBAI I will say that all Indian students here are very much proud of their identity and follow their customs in fact whenever we meet our elders we make sure we greet them with NAMASTEY UNCLE NAMASTEY AUNTY and touch the feet of our gurus not only that we also pray to god regularly and celebrate all the festivals here.

Friends, culture can't decay. Our lifestyles are decaying by mixing of different cultures. Our traditional culture was designed as per our environment by experts in such a way that it protects us in many different ways. For example Indian, organic food is the best food for great health. Indian cotton clothing was the best for our Indian climate. Families used to live together. All were entrepreneurs and were together in all good and bad times. People were studying in gurukul and were taught about values on respecting elders and loving youngers. Worship the powers, protect environment etc. But now children study engineering, work in software, stay away from parents, parents suffer without children, many people suffer from lifestyle diseases, excess pesticide in food. All these are the side effects of the wrong culture in wrong place. Who has to correct this? We have to correct this, we have to protect our environment, we should do organic farming, we have to teach our children about values in life. If we fail to do so we will have to face the consequences. Friends wake up soon before everything is spoiled.

I believe that our culture is not decaying, though we are heading towards modernisation but there are certain things in our country that has not changed and probably won't change in future, one of which is unity and attachment with family, selflessness in relations, which is not seen in other countries.

Modernisation is just a mindset, because in this phase of globalisation we are forced to adopt or copy the english style so as to be accepted around the world and that is the reason why foreign people are also copying Indian way of dressing and learning basic hindi language. This proves that the exchange of culture is both sided, so I think that its not that our culture is decaying its just that we are acceptable to multiple cultures which is surely a positive thing.

Change is the universal law, adopted by the times. Invention of new religion around the globe was a result of change, then I don't understand why we blame east & west?

Today our country is growing very rapidly and its people are also getting rich. With the passing days, a new generation came and adopt new styles and fashion and trying to create an unimaginative world. But have we ever thought about the word 'fashion'? It is the word which has diverted the whole world from their aims and target. It is the word which teaches to compromise from them. It is a word which has taken away the morality far from the human lives. Today our youngsters are creating the world where a person is a model or an object. So our people of India always be a man of principle it will save you and your family from distortion. I hope from my citizen that you will protect and preserve our culture as our culture is submerging into the western culture.

Thank you.
