FALL OF CULTURE IN THE SEASON OF 21ST CENTURY
It’s season of fall but I have been observing that there is a great fall in the society . Side by side , with age long traditions being tremendously followed once by all primitive people seems to be lost. The natural inherited culture which spoke at times the very essence of our society is no left in the modern society. An age of credulity and miracles , where people together sing the Hymn of decency and humanity is eroded in high- tech age of 21st century. The pitfalls of this modern society results that we are living alike the most degraded souls on this earth.
Continuously it has been observed people’s minds are changing on basis of new trends eventually to embellish their lifestyle. There was a time that we got to hear marvellous stories of great men. Those men on whom we wrote legendary stories , pictured them into our lives , lived lives more wonderful than any romances and their courage , gentleness , humanity, kindness occupied a lasting impression on the rough people of the society. Those deeds of heroism and compassion which were part of their daily life all seems to be vanished thoroughly into so- called “Spanish era”. Things which people tend to rule in the golden years was making records with the simplicity of living and their amiable actions opened millions of hearts o follow the path. Unfortunately, they are now at extinct and nearly out of knowledge to the younger generations.
Trails are followed by what fashion of society demand , decide, discuss , define. In this modern society manners , behaviours , language were the three first victims’ who got hanged right way accused of portraying the old culture. Perhaps at this point of time fall of culture in the season of 21st century begins. Isn’t it quite embarrassing that even legal institutions are now joining hands in breaching the old traditions of Indian society ; in the name of freely exercise the power of free society , framing dirty manuscripts . transforming into law. Being an Indian , I feel quite shocking and emotionally upset with the things coming from such highly educated folks.
Yet being under one roof , India one should not even bother to give permission to practice what western culture prescribed , which have almost murdered our long age traditions , rituals , customs and culture . On the other side , those legal people have no right to breach the matrimonial society , so as to give a big-name tag of being “Great Nation”. Until of mature age , we lived as layman and had never given enough of effort to learn few disciplinary words. Indeed, so ignorant of singing the ethics or philosophy of land we belong to , where culture speaks more than royal blood .
But who cares???? We love the way we want . this is a republic nation? Why should I follow the old vibes which isn’t pleasing to our society? We don’t have any duty assigned neither any responsibility towards our society? It is sometimes assumed that we are more into alike imitating each other and trying to impress each and every one whom we don’t even know . The reason can be traced into variety of topics and themes but the most one is defining yourself which aren’t original, in your real life. This is certainly like we are fooling ourselves and world at times may laugh at us. The ratio is too high that at some of point of time we even try to impress those strangers’ and imitate in the belief of trendy culture and sophisticated conscious that we don’t even realize that we are converting ourselves into savage.
However, in light of western culture , a man wearing suit can behave in the weirdest way but that doesn’t sign him as a gentleman just because he is wearing a suit. In such a scenario he is not only insulting the dress code abut also the entire the philosophy of civility. And definitely the same goes with women fraternity too. It’s quite disappointing that we are forgetting our roots for sake of lavishing into western ethos, leaving behind the footprints of immoral ethics and walking ahead towards degrading of Indian values. Those modern culture should not be heavily influenced into our lives which has nothing to do with simplicity , humanity , modesty because such sophistication can bring only the weirdness into society which will lead to nowhere and might one fine day would echo in our future.
In all this , aim of writing the article is to turn men and women of modern era and make youth to understand the difference between being modern and being simple . there is a thin line between being modem and being human , being human is utmost important in the society which comes from respect , modesty , love , care , kindness , simplicity and practicing the culture of humanity and not modernity ; for that’s how we become truly modern!
The foundation of great society is laid down on the stones of “ethics and humanity”----mahi
