Mumbai also I am a regular visitor. Here also the impact of western culture is very high. I have seenlot of Western impact there.
I am a regular visitor I'd Delhi, I find comparatively less people who got influenced more by this western culture.
Now in India in many cities and eve towns also people getting attracted to this western culture and behaving in a very bad way.
Foreigners trying to absorb our culture but unfortunately our people are travelling to their future.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Well, if you look at the beach parties and luxury life of Goa and call it heavily influenced by West, then you must rethink about it. Because West is much more than that. Well, there are Pondichery, parts of Kerala which lead a disciplined heavily Western influenced life. Surprisingly enough, the habits of Lucknowi people are similar to today's English people. We can never tell.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
I am here in Mumbai for past 10 years and I find no fault on it as mentioned by author tagging western culture. However, I would like to ask him in which public place he found the sex act ? What does he actually mean "sex in public"?
Dress style: What wrong he found in dress style in Mumbai? Actually people whose roots are old thinking never wants to change with times can say such think. Women here mostly wear jeans and it is obvious one need to be fast when catching train or buses, which can't be done with Sari. More than the dress if people change their mind and eyes the way they look it would do world of good to our country.
Hard drinks and alcohol: In which metro city or small city people don't drink? I was in Chennai for 6 years and Pondichery for one year and I had found a alcohol shop in each and every corner during 1997-2003. Although, it is nothing new to our culture, its having very old history when people used to have "Madira" now alcohol.
Sex in Public: So far I have never seen in any public place. Yes, I agree that their are hugs and kisses in rare occasion but that can't comes under 'sex act'.
Smoking Cigarette: I am sorry I didn't know that only Mumbai people smoke.
Isn't you feel this thread is actually posted to humiliate some zonal city.
