Why do people in India hesitate or feel shy to say 'I love you '?We, Indians, are proud of our culture. We believe love and affection are private affairs and should not be expressed publically. But, even in the presence of family members within the confine of home, people hesitate to pronounce the sentence - 'I love you. '
Nowadays, the situation is changing due to exposure to the world through internet resources and media, and the younger generation s have started expressing their sentiments. However, in the past, barring a few exceptions, society did not consider it acceptable to openly say 'I love you ' even to
close family members.
What are your observations in this regard? Do you find it appropriate to express our feelings about loving our close family members openly?
