Are we undermining our culture and tradition in the name of fashion?Fashion is a means of expression to the rest of the world and a social declaration about us. Fashion will make our life colourful. Fashion changes from time to time. The way in which people behaved and dressed has changed throughout history and differs from one place to the other. Fashion is not just concealing your body, but for also your external and internal expression. Fashion is not only for young people but also for all ages.
Every one of us will have a culture and tradition. Clothing in terms of culture will reveal the historic back ground of the person. When you stay in a particular area for a long time, the people around you will identify you as son or daughter of your father or mother. When they see you they remember your family. This is an indication that the way in which you act, the way in which you talk and the way in which you dress up will be going and getting connected to your family in other words to your tradition or culture. You are not only representing you there, you are representing your culture and tradition.
It is very easy to distinguish a European from a Hindu by the style of dressing. When we see a lady on the road with the body completely covered with black dress except eyes we will say she is a Muslim. If we see a lady with a bind on her forehead we will say she is a Hindu.
Nowadays many people especially younger generation in the name of fashion completely forgetting and avoiding culture and tradition. All Indian males has forgotten their traditional dress and owned the foreign culture. But many of the females are still continuing the tradition of our country till very recently. But slowly a lot of change is seen in their dressing also. I understand the need of looking good but we should have certain margins for our culture and tradition also. Sometimes in the name of fashion the way in which we appear is giving a negative feeling rather than a positive impression on the individual.
Because of an individual's act the tradition and culture are losing their reputation. So this is my sincere request to everyone Please don't undermine your tradition and culture in the guise of Fashion.
Make Fashion as your passion but don't damage the roots of your history.
