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 itís 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 donít 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 standars
  • 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: people should not change their dressup with changing culture.midernization is to change our mentality,our thoughts with the time.we should be nerrow minded person. but adopting western clothes and dressup is not good in our society.So sometime it is good to adopt western culture but only for changing our mentality not dressing sense

Point: In India,girls are not treated as being equal to men, Indian society is a man dominating society which is a demerit of Indian society.Moreover it is a thing of tension for parents when a girl child is born to them because dowry practice is still into being.girls are not given proper education bcoz people think that their ultimate aim is to take care of their children and family. So, these practices of Indian culture should be opposed and stopped nd in these regards western culture is better.

Point: Western culture is not adopted by each and every one in the society. some people follow it while some don't which leads to change in the opinions of people.Sometimes people follow the culture blindly just because everyone else around is following. Western culture can be adopted by a person but it should be based on one's opinion and not because one wants to follow the crowd.Some values and traditions of western culture are very different from that of indian culture. Some people who have a broad mindset can accept it but people brought up in indian culture have a hard time of accepting it hence leading to arguments and fights in generations with a wider age gap.

Point: I m totally against of this topic, its not acceptable for us to adopt others culture. In western culture, most of the things are showing bad activities like not respecting their parents and elders, and many more and very less things are good so what to expect from that culture and why. India's culture and tradition are best and unique then why should we adopt others culture.while the western countries are not ready to accept our culture then why are we copying them
