Believe me sumtimes even literate clique does that!! I m actually with the thought dat every individual must have the right to dress up as they want.To wear or act like they want! To hit the reality i wud say (it may sound rude to some) "SOME " INDIANS are still so stuck in their old cultures dat they find it tough or rather say disgusted to adjust to modern culture while foreigners find it tough to understand Indian culture!


So "modern" culture is westernization? So what is "modern" for who live in the west? Modern is not they way you dress. Its the way you think. India is still a developing country and I hope I don't have to explain you why. But instead of only copying fashion and dances of the west why not adopt some of their ideas which make them a successful country and society? And about the "old" indian culture...please specify what goes under that category. I don't know how "old" or far back you are talking about cuz I'm a teenager...so even if you are talking about 10 years ago...I was too young...
i never said modern is western..or dressing down in dat sense ! Being Modern is to be modern in ur thoughts!! I m an Indian n i wud say if some indians dont respect Skirts,jeans ,shirts ,tops den dont bloody expect frm others to respect indian culture! ! !

I wasn't talking about foreigners respecting our culture! I'm talking about Indians respecting their own culture and their people. Trust me, there are some foreigners who can respect others and THEIR OWN culture better than Indians but we don't seem to want to copy that, Do we?

<font color="#009900" size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Okay without going into too much detail here, I understand this topic completely given my own experiences. I mean I absolutely love India! Heart I've spent years out there and not wanting to come back to London, but the truth is I've travelled mainly over North India and surrounding areas, but whilst I'm not travelling I usually stay in Delhi.Anyways,Ialways wear Indian clothes in India and I've had it all the time. People from India, mainly the same sort of age groups usually don't appreciate it much if they see a person from younger generations dressing in Indian clothing. I don't understand it but I can vouch that it's happened to me more times than once - so it's not just the few odd people, it's actually the majority. Maybe they find it old-fashioned or something to take the piss out of, but the truth is I laugh at people like that and I've even ended up dissing their asses lool but truth of the matter is what they're really taking the mick out of is themselves because they belong to the land where sari's were made for the reason of having enough material to cover you, 3 piece suits were made for modesty and no one's laughing at them because they're not wearing it, but then why do they find it amusing if what they consider us as 'foreigners' choose to wear it and respect it in the very land our roots derive from also. See abroad we have little resources to keep our cultures traditionaland intact with its roots so these small things help us finding an identity as Indians, it makes us feel proud that we are so away from home yetwehaven't forgotten who we are and where we come from. </font>

<font color="#009900" size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Having said that, I won't lie, even here in London, other cultural people accept our clothing more than our own, they appreciate it, admire, even try to imitate it, but we have majority from our culture here that also think it not right to wear Indian clothes because frankly speaking they find it 'intimidating' because perhaps they're not blending in with the people and friends from their area. </font>

<font color="#009900" size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"></font>


<font color="#009900" size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"></font>

<font color="#009900" size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">However the reason I'm replying is just to generally say that if we see other people's cultures and their traditions they're not ashamed or trying so hard to blend in with the western culture so much because it's our cultures and tradition and clothing that sets us apart in this world and to keep it alive we first need to learn to accept that.

Wow that was really good! So I'm not the only person who experienced this (Hear that KavyaSam?) Its not only Indians in India...in fact even the ones abroad...they don't teach their kids their language (Hindi, Tamil, etc), they don't have a single clue about India's culture or history. I have 2 Indian friends. One of them speaks Hindi, Telugu and English and is very much aware of current events in India and its history. My other friend who claims to know a little bit Hindi doesn't even want to try to say anything because she was embarrassed. Embarrassed of what? Besides me, nobody knew Hindi and she knew I would not make fun of her cuz I would help her with her Hindi sometimes. Then she said that she wants to learn Spanish fluently but funny thing is she can't even her own language fluently. It isn't her fault...it her parents. I have many other friends which belong from other cultures (Mexican, Chinese, African,) Most of them were born here I America but they are so connected to their culture and speak their language so fluently. And they are very proud of it! They are not ashamed to speak in their language in front of others. Actually I would even admire south Indians on that...most are pretty connected to their roots. My friend which I was talking about is also south Indian.

eh!!!    Did I ever say you are the ONLY person who visits India and experience any discomfort?  If you had also added another all caps footnote that 'only those who agree should post' then I would have never posted in your topic. 
 
My views remain the same.  Few experiences , few people and few discriminations will not hold the whole country responsible.  Be it America or India.

You mentioned that I think this cuz only some people in a store behaved like that with me. Why are you getting mad? I don't have to change my perspectives just like you don't have to either. Debates are to discuss not to change each other's views. So chill out and relax! And I know...a few rotten apples don't make the whole tree rotten Wink Have a nice day! Smile

They obviously hate their reality and want to get away from it. Living in a fantasy world and trying to convert India into some western country which in reality would never happen.

If Indians are trying to model to be like a western country, it isn't bad but we should also think about adopting some of their ideas which make them a successful country and society. There is a fine line between development and westernization. India should be a place where all cultures are respected and accepted as well as our own. America is a very diverse country when it comes to race, religion, & culture. Smile
