Western culture should be adopted by India good or bad?

Favor (Good)

  • Culture is not law, change is law of nature, and so if Indians want to adopt some good things of western culture, than it's totally acceptable.

  • Western culture has various practices which are good and it can help us to make our society better.

  • Adopting good practices of any culture is always fruitful.

  • Sending parents to old age home is not a western thing. If it is immoral to send parents to old age homes then why are those old age homes set up.

Against (Bad)

  • There is a big difference between modernization and westernization. People wearing Jeans, T-shirts, Girls wearing short skirts, tops, jeans etc. and feel that they are modern; this is pure westernization - copying what people are doing there... this is not modernization. Modernization takes place in mind rather than in clothes.....

  • Adopting western culture is bad adopt culture but don't forget your own culture.... People rarely care for the old ones' there, albeit we do, but nowadays people are getting busy and they are adopting the means to keep old parents in Old Age Home, which is not our culture.


  • Adopting western culture is not a problem but one should be very carefull whatever they are adopting is good or bad as per the current social standard.

  • Just copying western culture wont work. We should find out the pitfalls of our culture and try to reomve them like dowery etc

  • One's personal freedom always matters.It's his own choice to adopt or not.

Point: india is one of the most culturally diversified country in the world. people here share different cultures,religions,ethics,and no. of varying communities.but the problem is that indians nowdays are forgetting there own rich cultures in the race of mordenisation, they are adopting western cultures as a part of there mordernisation practises. well it is also equally true that changes is nessecary, and there is nothing wrong in adapting new cultures if we want to,but what we need to undestand is that we should not leave behind or neglect our own indian cultures in the persue of others.
