There are good and bad 'Trends' we follows. is it right?The word 'trend' is very familiar to all, as it is commonly used in all languages. But many of them become a tendency to us. We have often had to follow many trends in our lives. It can be seen that the traditional foods we have acquired in the past, have changed and turned to the food trends of foreign countries. Many of these do not provide the body with the required nutrients and many of the unwanted ones accumulate in the body. Trends in food like this cannot be fully followed. Many of the trends in the food we are following are that foreigners have tried and found not to be good, which are being described by us as new trends in India. One of them is foods like Paratha made with maida flour- the final waste content of wheat used to make gum. Our traditional foods provide essential nutrients to the body and are easily digested. But the new trends, like maida flower, not only do no good to the body but are also harmful. Therefore, such foods that have come into the diet - which are trending among the youth - should be avoided. So this is a bad trend.
New trends in clothing can be seen in our country over the years. But our traditional dress code was adapted to the temperate climate of our country. Many of the new dress trends are being used for convenience. So young and middle-aged people are interested in wearing trendy clothes even if it is a little hot. Older people are reluctant to wear such new trend clothes. The latest trend in fashion is the introduction of clothing in the Indian market. It has been embraced by the youth community. So it can not be said that it is a bad trend.
We have started using the latest trends for attractive in-house fittings. One of them is LED strip lighting. They enhance the beauty of the view only. Traditionally we were used bulbs and tubes with filaments. The next trend was filament-free, mercury-coated CFL bulbs, to reduce the usage of electricity, and that gives more light in less electric power. But that too was changed as it was found to be a major headache to avert bulbs after usage and the mixing of mercury in the soil was detrimental to agriculture and the environment. The current new trend is LED bulbs and tube lights. These provide more light at lower power than CFL bulbs. Let time prove whether there is any harm in these too.
