Yeah, I think we are slowly and steadily loosing our Indian culture to the West. The culprit, I think it is the MOVIES.

Well.. what exactly do we mean by Culture here? can culture be really that fragile that with the globalization it would be disoriented Do we really have to bring up the banners of Culture against any sort of change? Haven t been there hundreds of changes already invading our lives, which don t comply to our so called culture. I don t understand one simple thing is accepting the effect of globalization is a threat to our culture But to me its not. aren t these cultures made by adding small changes at a time, slowly and steadily over the centuries. Looks true. So why are we so averse to only certain kind of changes even when they may not be more harmful than many other changes which actually go unnoticed....

There are Indians who are very proud of their culture and carry with them where ever they go such are the Indians who have migrated to other countries and brought with them the proud heritage of Indian culture. What is sad, is, while these migrated Indians hold fast to the Indian culture in their country of domicile, the Indians in India are slowly loosing their culture to the westerners.

Are we loosing our culture I feel not hust today since the time of colonization we have started loosing our culture Colonization by the British have resulted into the destruction of local industries and handicrafts. Though foreign interference has helped in eradicating some social evils, it has also affected Indian religious and cultural traditions in many ways. Hindu- Muslim Unity has suffered a great deal.Globalization has caused many Indian to abandon Indian culture and ape the west. Many Indian values have been lost because the yong think of them as useless.

we are on the way on loosing our indian culture... the movies can t inject anything... i mean then about this gay problem, i m in deep dilemma,eventhough its against our culture,but as far as a humanist point of view,we have to adapt with it... culture is human made,widely speaking made by a group of people,made by a society... culture,it can be changed...and it should have to change.for the sake of humanity....

My dear Prasobh Vijayan, fyi, everything in this world is man made and it is made for the benefit of the society to live in peace, harmony, disciplined, respectful, god fearing, religious etc. etc, If we do not have all these man made rules, than we will not be any diffrent from animals. God has given us human the sixth sense inorder for us to think and do the right thing and to know what is good and bad. Animals, as you know cannot think and does not know what is good and bad. They just follow and do what the animal in front of them does. Do we want to be an animal and do what the other person does even though we know it is wrong???

hai rajendra prased whtat you said was right parents,teachers etc can impart our culture among the coming generations.. i think in schools there must be a subject called moral science which implies indian culture,patriotosm,i mean all about india and better to have a counsellor in each schools to build them mentally strong,... what u said was absolutely right.. actually i was so impressed about your views if people like you are 1000,then our country will fly high really appreciate it man

I don t blame all Indians, but only those mostly in metros are falling as preys to this western culture. As they get a job in a Western country based office they tend to change their attitude by seeing their colleagues, and that s how it spreads. But that s not the only way, there still a lot of ways in today s modern world.

to be frank Indian culture ll never loose its tradition, though we find many other cultures in midst of us which adopt it with great heart as a matter of fact we adopt it with a great WOW shamelessly , and the culture looses its position when there s an instability in our minds and heart like why dont we give it a try like whats wrong and whats missing in what we are. and when we come to the western culture we are the one who get fascinated and allow it to take its place like for example the east india company hope we all understand what am pointing out . finally we get up with a question are we loosing our culture......... hats off ppl and i believe in one powerful saying if we today s and tomorrows youth cant do, then who else can. think my fellow friends thank you

Vikas according to you our culture lives in our heart. What happens when we are gone does the culture also vanishes/disappears just like that . You are wrong Vikas our culture and tradition must be seen to exist and for that we have to outwardly practise our culture and traditions in order for the future generation to see for themselves the beauty of the Indian values.

Yes we but this we is mostly restricted to urbanites are loosing our culture. The cause behind it is the new moderately well to do middle class parents of youngsters. They fail to educate the kids about Indian culture but get thrilled when the kids dance to a Bollywood tune or a MJ song. These days these kids would not be able say which is Bharatanatyam and which is Odyssy or kathak. They would identify any western singer but not Pt. Jasraj or any other Indian classical musician. They would have seen 2012 or Startrek but not Shakuntala or Ramayana. Are they responsible No. Not they but their parents who are in the age group of 30 to 50 years as of now. These people had no time to teach the young about anything Indian. Further if you take a look at the schools today you may notice that all their school day functions vibrate with even five year olds dancing to Shaeila ki javani . I remember of having acted as Krishna or Rama in school functions and girls performing Bharatanatyam or singing classicals.

I am an IndoAmerican settled in Palo Alto for 20 years. We are very few in number and in the busy schedule we have we hardly find time to interact and indirectly drifting away from our culture. But I know some Associations and camps like Jano India/Hindi programs conducted by US Hindi Association who give right tools and right guidance to our children and siblings too to speak conversational Hindi and learn about the rich Indian Culture. I need to know any other ideas relating to keep the aroma of our culture afresh.

Our tradition is not changing but changing it with time is necessary. I have read a quote which says changes are made for good if you wont change world will left you aside and it means a lot. We Indians hold our tradition and also accept new things in our culture that doesn t mean we forgot about our culture or we don t care about it. Indian tradition won t change I am sure as we care about it.

Sorry I do not agree that the government should be responsible in recovering the slowly loosing Indian Culture. You cannot expect the government to do everything for you. It is my believe that the Indian culture is part and parcel of Indian family values and as such it should be the duty of the parents to inoculate their children with the said values from their very young age. Please take note that upbringing of children with typical Indian values and as responsible citizen of the country solely lies with parents.

Every country has its own unique culture art and heritage and no one can beat that. Similarly Indian art and culture is also unique and beautiful and not only Indian but people from all over the world love its culture and art. But we can also not hide the fact that our culture is loosing its sheen as their are reasons for that first one is that most of the artisans live in poverty and are nor economically sound. They get stuck in the net of mediators who eat a huge sum of their profits. Second is the ignorance by the government. Indian government should do something to support artisans and sculptors of the country and should provide them all necessary platform and necessary modern marketing skills so that they can get some profit.

Abstract art is a creation, a painting or a sculpture of something that does not portray a person, place or thing in the natural world and so the subject of the artwork is based on the process of creation and how you interpret what you see. Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) is generally feted as being the first painter to bring abstract art to the fore.

Yes, slowly slowly we are loosing our culture and tradition. We are living in India but no one wants to care about our mother tongue. Our social structure is influenced by the west. Our traditional art forms such as Rangoli etc. are going away.
