One cannot be rigid in your thoughts; it restricts growth. Wonder what's your opinion about fascism and dictatorship?
Besides you are also confusing the issues of culture and social growth. Basic needs of food, shelter and such are social responsibilities irrespective of culture.
As regards effects of English and Western-ism, here is my personal opinion..
English language does not reflect the whole of Western culture and the two should not be confused.
English has been a gateway for most Indians to the western world, it has expanded our horizons beyond the common man's comprehension, and its benefits can be seen in today's young India. Today India is an emerging economic power with vast human and natural resources, and a huge knowledge base. Economists predict that by 2020, India will be among the leading economies of the world. During the recent recession, India's economic growth faced a slowdown but not not a crash while all other nations took a beating.
Progress in communication and technology is making the world a global community where distance is no more a barrier and English has definitely played its part. It has also exposed us to other cultures, not just western, for example the Celtics, Asian, Pacific Polynesian, Middle eastern, Scandinavian.
The western culture per -se has been largely misunderstood in a largely close-minded society. We tend to look at other cultures through dark-tinted glasses of a completely opposite Indian culture. Other cultures may not have the same level of integrity and tradition as India has, and many times they fall short of basic virtues of modesty, self-control and discipline. However, we cannot judge them unless we ourselves have a clean slate. What about race, caste and economic discrimination in India, dowry and bride-burning, female infanticide?
India has a rich cultural heritage we should be proud of but humility has been lost somewhere in this finger-pointing exercise. Tolerance towards others needs to be preached.
Western culture does have the power to influence young minds who are of impressionable age as it appeals to their sense of rebellion and independence. However as responsible adults, you have the power to influence the youngsters in your life by your lifestyle, habits and values you profess. One day the bird will fly back to his nest. There comes a time when realization dawns and you learn to value your own culture. Its a bond that's invisible and intangible that links us to our roots always.
