We all agree our India is a developing country, but in no way it is losing its culture and heritage. Yes I do agree that India is not the same as it used to be few decades back, vast changes have taken place in various fields, starting from technology to glam world, from people's mentality to lifestyle, views,.. everything. Yeah of course the advancement has reached a certain level where we have to put back out believes and customs to cope up with the pace of this world, as we are somewhat following the western countries, because they are the ones who are among the most developed in all aspects. And to step in the shoes of the ones who are steps ahead us is never a bad idea!. But that doesn't at all mean we have kicked off our culture, heritage, believes etc etc for the sake of developing. We are still the Indians. Following the western countries has never made us wear black costumes on mourning days of a dead, neither it has shirked us from the traditional 'joda' in marriages. There are many more points, but I would like the Pro to put up their views too, first. Good luck everyone.
