Aping of Western Culture by the Younger Generation

It is the age of globalisation. The world has shrunk to a global village.The modern industrial culture is the product of western culture. It is quiet natural that it dominates the cultural scenario of the civilized world. The younger generations like fun,enjoyment and adventures. Their fascination for the materialistic culture is quite obvious. They ape western culture. They are indifferent to their great cultural heritage. Their attitude to the age long customs and values is quite lukewarm. Some times they openly defy and make mockery of traditions,old ideas and ideals.

There should be no room for narrow thinking. Culture and ideas know no geographical limits. Liberalisation of our economy opened gates for the multinational companies in India. Western corporations are the ambassadors of the western life styles,values and culture.

The love of our young men and women for Ray-Ban goggles ,Addidas shoes, LeCoste's T-shirts, Pepe jeans and many other established brands of the West have become a reality. Boys & Girls in schools and colleges know little about Pandit Ravi Shankar & Pt. Jasraj. They dance to the tunes of Pop stars like Michael Jackson, Madona & the Venga Boys.

The Growing pub culture in big cities has popularised boozing among young men. Late night discoes and Beer-clubs are doing the rest. Actually, the younger generation in India in India is passing through a cultural crisis.Poverty,corruption, frequent communal riots and religious fanatiscim have created indifference towards their own culture. They are not exposed to the spiritual and lastings values of Indian Culture.

It is the fault of our education and upbringing. We should develop confidence and pride in our own culture. We will have to take the lead to make others follow us.
