Why are we sequacious to western trends?There seems to be a huge gridlock of trends and these trends have sandwiched us in almost all walks of life. We are running after trends. Sometimes, we catch one trend and leave another then grasp one more and ignore another. The following trend means we are following someone. Why we follow trends with so much interest looks strange to me. Sometimes, many of us are blindfolded sequacious of trend and fashion. We don't stop for a moment to think whether or not it is conducive for us in our lives, only we have been dogging behind a trendsetter. Where is our choice? Perhaps, we have no choice, we follow what other people suggest us to follow. We take it as they dictate us.
I have been an antagonist to western culture which, in my opinion, is the antithesis to Indian culture and traditions. All trends which come from the west are blended with their culture and lifestyle and we follow them as happy sequacious. I see that following western trends has become a status symbol. It does not mean that I am xenophobian, No, not at all. I respect their culture or the trends which they propagate to spread their supremacy but I don't want to choose it for myself. Do you ever think about how they keep their supremacy over us? I give you an example. They started Common Wealth Games, and you know why these games were started and which countries participate in this international event? Those countries which once were colonies of Great Britain take part in Common Wealth Games. This mentality is continued that once they were our subjects.
