Perhaps this was not going to be my next title to be shared. Today I was to discuss some other topic. But, suddenly I am realising ‘it’ to be discussed.
Not complexing this any more, let you know that India comprises two categories of people. The first, who lives in India and has its nationality. They are the Indians.
The second category of people are the one who reflects country’s culture, motto,notion in their living. These are in themselves- INDIA.
Now, what let me to talk about this?
I see, certain emerging thoughts which consider ‘Indian culture’ and social norms as rag and cause of unupliftment.
What is upliftment then?
Following the notion of being ‘The Cools’, henceforth drinking, attending bars? Night outs? Or..wearing ‘hell’?
The thought of upliftment should be about- Learning good. Excelling in different fields. Becoming a human resource to one’s nation. Upliftment of any country should be done in every possible spheres in such a way that the original sole beauty of the country is maintained.
The filtered cultural believes must be opted. One should take pride in taking stand for and representing India.
How sweet and colourful different costumes, traditions and languages we have! What a marvellous story, the history of jewellery in India depicts! Such a diversity, and yet we understand one-another, pay respect to each tongue. It’s so interesting to know and learn enormous languages..almost each city has its own acsent. Have you ever tried to learn regional indian languages?
I see, we get inspired from Western culture. Why so..?? Have you thought ever? This is because, people from West, represent ‘The West’ , represent their country in their living. Think, do you represent your country through your living?
Take pride in your heritage, languages, and culture. Take pride in India.
Opting different styles, might be your choice. But the adaptation should not be done in a way that you loose India somewhere in in West.
Let India exist in the world in the way it is letting you to exist in it.
So, what you choose, being an Indian or being The INDIA..?
