Mix of culture. We have to be different in our own place.With the advancement of technology and MNCs across the country, people are now working in all the cities and hence the place we lived some years before is changed and now have a mix of culture and if we say culture it is not only traditional even in normal day life.
To quote an example, in Chennai, the seats in the buses are meant on the left side is for women and is followed for quite some years before and when this was the case in Chennai, other parts of state I have seen, the front side is for women and back side is for men and in some places like Trichy, it is right side for women. Also alighting is at the front side and getting in is from back side in Chennai while in other places it is like women getting in and alight from front and men at the back. There are in other parts of the country too the style is not the same pattern as in Chennai and now with the mixture or people from all part of the country, not one cannot strict to the same rule which was prevailing in buses and hence I feel different from other's eye if I follow the set rules.
This is my personal experience and also I wanted to say in a recent activity of banning crackers in Delhi, it has both support and against views from learned members and one such is tweet by Chetan Bhagat has more remarks when he against the ban and it may be applicable to him that he cannot think his own place(Delhi) during the festival of Diwali without crackers though he is not living now in Delhi.
So with the above, I feel, with a mix of culture, one has to feel to be different in our own place.
So, members, you may also come with your own experience when you have seen this kind of situation.
