Moral life and Modern life

The picture and the title might have given u a brief idea about what this topic is all about. Yes this is all about society and our way of life.I just want to stress how valuable our culture is and how dangerous it is to deviate from it..

Ok,now let us start.So whats the big deal about Indian culture?Whats the need to discuss about it?What significance does it have?Let us see..

Nowadays we are very fond of foreign and foreign culture.Most of the so called "people-with-modern thoughts" think that if we want to become a super power,we should do whatever Americans or Europeans are doing.The best example is the night life in most of the Indian cities.In the name of night life,lots of atrocities are happening. I will come to this later,but now an even more dangerous disease is spreading in India.If u r going to think its swine flu,am extremely sorry,u r wrong.That disease is nothing but reality shows in tv channels.

In the name of game,everything is brought to tv.The entry of 24*7 news channels is really a huge curse to this nation.There is one channel called Headlines today.In that channel they are giving more importance to one awkward lady(Rakhi Sawant) than any other person.Whenever I tune my channels,I could see only this lady in that channel.That channel has not given this much importance to even our Prime Minister.Her marriage or swayamvara,(whatever nonsense it be) was given immense importance.Now there is a news that she and her husband are going to do a reality show in a private channel.The show is all about how they are going to live together and how they are going to become parents.They will capture everything in camera.So if u r going to bring everything to TV,then whats there in life?Certain things will be good only if its within ur bedroom.

In another reality show,called Sach Kaa Saamna they will ask u some questions based on ur real life.If u answer them correctly u will get the prize.So what will they do?They will give some drugs(mostly narcotic)to u and will ask u some questions.When someone is given that drug,he/she will tell only the truth.So they will note it down.And in the show, they will ask u some of those questions."Great game na?Why this idiot is bashing that show?"-u may think(but dont think like that and all :D).Just see some of the questions asked in that show:

Q1: Have u ever walked some 100 meters without any dress?-This question was to cricketer Vinod Kambli.

Q2: Have u ever thought of some other girl when u r close with ur wife?

Q3: Have u ever thought of killing ur husband and ur mother-in-law?

And the corresponding people answered 'Yes' to all the above questions.U may think question 2 is very much personal,there are even more worst questions,but let me stop with this.If we speak against this nonsense,the tv channels give a cool answer,"we are not forcing u to watch this program,if u dont like,better dont watch it".How noble this answer is.Isnt it?Is this the right way to answer?It would be better if there is a censor to tv channels too.If they are going to ask these questions to our politicians or criminals(almost both are same only :D)means,it will be more useful for us.

Apart from these reality shows,there was another news which was in the headlines for so many days.That news is nothing but scrapping of IPC377,that is,legalising homosexuality. After the judgement was announced,huge crowd gathered.They were holding the hands of each other and some people even went on to cry to express their emotions(oru motion um vendam :x).These days I couldnt see such a huge crowd in an Independence day or republic day celeberation.And there are intellectuals who argue that,homosexuality is individual's right and we should not curse them or mock at them.They say that it is their freedom(?).

Our freedom,at no point should be a hinderance to others.But this type of relationship will spoil several families.Imagine what will happen if married men or women leave their family and go with their partners?Their family becomes helpless isnt it?And the intellectuals argue that,even if this law is in force,these things do happen,so there is no use in keeping this law.They are proving their greatness by giving counters like this.Ok,let us consider this case.In India robbery is a crime.But still robbers are there and they rob banks,houses,offices etc.So anyway they are going rob,so whats the use of giving punishments to robbers?Shall v legalize robbery and other crimes too?The thing is people used to feel shy to discuss about this Homosexuality and all..See,now the scrapping of this law has made it how common,that starting from a jobless person(vetti opicer :D) like me to leading newspapers/channels speaking about it.

Moreover,still it is not scientifically proven that people are born-Homosexuals.As of now it is a psychological disorder.And it can be cured through yoga.

If u think this will spoil only few families,u r wrong.Families are the strength of our country.Even in such a crisis period,Indian economy is stable.The price-hike in India is not due to global financial crisis.Its because of corruption.Thats a different topic,lets not go into that now.

Only because of families,we have savings.Only because of savings,our economy is still stable.In America there is no family based life,there is only contract based life.Marriages are not as successful as it is in India.In Indian families,ladies will not allow their husbands to waste their money(in most of the families) and they have the habit of saving the money.Because of them only our country could escape from this recession.

-I am not saying this,Mr.S.Gurumurthy,a Charted Accountant,a reputed economist and writer in Indian Express,he is saying this.And a survey in America too shows that only Asian countries can help America and other European countries using their savings,to fight this recession.

Nowadays America is slowly adopting Indian policies.They have asked their citizens to cook themselves in home and to avoid hotels as much as possible,so that the vegetable business could pick up.But their serious problem is if people start cooking themselves,most of the hotels may be closed.There is that much confusion and imbalance.But in India these kind of problems are not there,as of now.

But if we adopt the western culture,we will face even more difficulties and our economy will get a big blow.

So this is the right time to think on this.Am not saying that everyone should be a perfect individual.Nobody can be a 100% perfect individual.But all I am saying is that,we should not deviate from a valuable culture which we are following for hundreds and hundreds of years.

Dont think that "this fellow is writing as if he is a UTHAMAN" :D.This is just an article,go through it,if u find anything wrong in this,feel free to bash me in comments.If u think the article is good,specify it too :-).
