Cleanliness, everything is widely accepted only if told in English and by foreignersOur elders told to follow cleanliness in many ways in the name of Aachaaram but we people mocked them and set aside as old man words. If we follow the same in the house as told by our elders, the youngsters mocked and ignore them and it is wonder to hear the same from them by seeing the same on the internet as told by Americans in the name of hygiene. Similarly, we set aside all follow up traditions formed by our elders and feeling happy when the same is followed by other country's people. Other country people are mostly accepting our culture very interestingly but we are all following their culture which has no meaning. In the name of modernization, PETA etc., we are all killing our own culture by abolishing existing activities but following the same in other name like commenting our village play Kittippul which is renamed with modifications as Cricket and overwhelming on the same.
On the other side, some other country marketeers offering footware,dresses with Indian Gods and patriots pictures and we without knowing the insult we are appreciating and clapping well.
There is a play in village side called ILAVATTAKKAL,REKLA RACE which is almost ignored by many but foreigners enjoyed the same when they attended the village festivals German tourists enjoying Rekla, Belgium tourists enjoyed Elavattakal at Kodimangalam near Madurai,Tamilnadu.
Our elders responsibility lies very much in them to seed our culture in our children otherwise we Indians should get last (lost) our valuable culture.
