Whither Indian Youth – Neither Here Nor There

The aping of western culture by our youth is eating into our age-old culture and values. This erosion of values inherited down the ages is a matter of concern for everyone. Invasion from the sky, in the form of foreign TV channels, is telling big blow to our youth. Scantily clad women gyrating their bodies in the most explicit sexual overtures on MTV is what our youth are fed in the name of entertainment. The increasing number of divorces, the disintegration of joint families, and disrespect and neglect towards parents and elders are the fallout of westernization. Instead of feeling proud of our oldest culture, the youth feel ashamed to own it up. They ape senselessly not only their way of dressing but values also. Faithfulness toward a partner in marriage and celibacy before marriage are scarce these days. Teaching about Indian culture should be made a part of the curriculum. Values should be inculcated among youth to take pride in being Indian and Indianness. The west is already facing lots of problems due to liberalization. They have now come to regard the greatness of Indian culture. It would be a shame if the youth still hanker after westernization and ignored our rich Indian culture.
