Hi friends,

I believe that Change is the rule of nature. That is the reason we are accepting the Western culture. So I think changes are for good & we should accept them.

The changes about our attire, language, cultural activities, behavior wounded our real culture. Once the attire of girls was about dignity but now it favours nudity. Our country has distinct and vast culture than others it's really hard to get mixed up with western thoroughly, if 50% adopted the western then remaining will oppose that and likewise our culture is imbalanced, attire and affectation can be changed but the mentality is the same as earlier of most of the people.

Hi friends,

Here's Swara.

I think Western culture has affected almost every dimension of society. The core religious traditions are still the same but the life style differences can be found because of western culture. Hence we can say that western media has not affected the core traditions of Indian society but has changed life style and apparent characteristics of the society.

Hello friends,

I think our culture is not decaying. How there is head and tail for the coin there are both positive and negative in western and Indian culture. I think both cultures are unique in their own way and equally good. We should not think that our culture is decaying but should take good qualities from both and put it into use in our life.

Indian culture gives us lots of different people, caste, race and everything and also getting to learn lots of different things at ice. Where as in foreign country you won't get to learn many things. There life will be like a machine. The only thing you get to learn is just culture, religion, every one out of there. So learn to love our country.

Hi this is Nikhil.

I think that the culture is for the people, people are not for the culture. So the thing which is wrong in our culture, that must be reformed and same thing we are doing with our culture. We are just adopting only those things from the western culture, which is good for us.

Example: Our old culture says that we should not allow our girls to study but that is not good for us so we just reformed it.

Our old culture also says that we should respect our elders and we are doing. Yes, I accept it that the way of respecting has been changed but we are doing.

Hi I am Muneeb.

It has been wisely said that if a country loses his culture the country lost his everything. Our culture is our id, we are known by our culture it is our responsibility to save our culture from being getting decayed.

Culture is not something like our dressing sense or our food or anything like that. Culture is our way of relating, connecting to our world and the living things around us. The way we behave, the way we feel about things, the way we react to things. We still do love and respect our parents, our teachers and our elders. There is a lot of passion for dance and music in us.

Hi everybody, I'm a Nigerian girl, frankly speaking I must say that modernization or civilization is not make our culture especially in African countries, Nigeria to be precise it has inculcate too much of bad attitude into our way of life, in term of dressing, respect for elders, and so on. Its really terrible.

Hi friends,

In my point of view, we are adopting the western culture (like their way dressing, food habits, etc). But our way of thinking is not changed till now. All other countries are following our culture but we are not seeing the beauty of our culture. We should save our culture from decaying. By saying the glory and beauty of our culture.

To our children (the younger generation). India is the mixture of different cultures and traditions. What we adopt from western or other countries it should be useful and benefit for the welfare of our country.

I am very proud to be an INDIAN.
