If you think that western culture is a bad thing, then why do Indian families send their kids over there?

Good education, equality, women's rights, animal protection laws, independence. Are there not all good things that happen in the west?

They are some good and bad.

I am a Thai woman. I do value Thai cultures such as honest, kind, respect elder, have a nice and sweet manner. On the other hand, I do value western cultures such as women's rights and strong work ethics.

Well there's so many different cultures within India. It's hard to define the entire Indian culture because it's so diverse. But yes it is kinda becoming Westernized. But it is also keeping its Indianness. Some of it is good, some bad.

I would not agree with u as Indian culture is no way 'moving' towards western culture.I would want to be specific on the terminology here,i.e today Indians opt for a western 'life style' than western culture,for many reasons,be it convenience or for that matter lack of awareness about the true essence of Indian culture,which is most often misinterpreted...


It depends on what an individual would want to emulate,the ambivalence will always exist!

change can never be bad.
and yes, it is good because in america you don't see people
urinating on the streets, cows roaming around and children beggging for food.
to be honest, there is nothing to proud of when it comes to indian culture

You must have heard "nothing is permanent in this world except change". So there will be some changes in indian culture also but not to worry -THEY WILL DEFINITELY BE FOR THE BETTER. The old culture was men oriented, changing times will reflect power of women.

indian culture is a beautiful culture.the best part of indian culture is that it preserves the girlish traits of girls.girls having long black hair,their beautiful skin, and the shyness in the behavior is one important characteristic here.apart from all that,indian culture is varied,its a caricature of different religions and languages.personally i feel indian culture taming other cultures is not a good sign and all indians should try to preserve it. but in some respects the change is desirable like i guess its the western culture from wher we have learnt that women should voice publicly and they should not suffer in silence.concluding, i feel that the above factor is welcomed,otherwise indian culture should be as it is.

First of all each and every one living for others. BE ALWAYS HAPPY. BE ENJOY THIS LIFE.

Foundations and Mission Statement

The World Culture Project is based on the belief that culture and cultures have a central role to play in global development and human affairs and are the key to human welfare and environmental well-being in the future. The Project was initiated in 1988 to commemorate the World Decade for Cultural Development (1988-1997). It was officially designated a World Decade for Cultural Development activity by UNESCO in 1989.
For purposes of the Project, culture is defined in the holistic sense as a dynamic and organic whole or total way of life. It is concerned with the way people visualize and interpret the world, organize themselves, conduct their affairs, elevate and embellish life, and position themselves in the world.

The Project is divided into an International Component and a Canadian Component. The International Component is designed to develop the holistic concept of culture in broad, general terms, as well as apply it to a complex set of global issues and problems. The Canadian Component is designed to develop the holistic concept of Canadian culture in specific, practical terms, as well as to apply it to a similar set of Canadian issues and problems. As a case study, the Canadian Component provides an opportunity to examine the holistic concept of culture for a country that may be called upon to play a seminal role in the world of the future.

Consistent with these commitments, the Project has three main objectives:

To broaden and deepen knowledge and understanding of culture, cultures, and Canadian culture;
To examine the crucial role culture, cultures, and Canadian culture are capable of playing in the world of the future;
To promote interest in culture, cultures, and Canadian culture throughout the world.
The objectives are advanced by:

Publications
Participation in conferences and seminars
Presentation of workshops
Involvement in internet and related activities
The Project is particularly interested in the centrality of culture and cultures, worldviews, values, value systems, cultural models of development, cultural development, cultural policy, creativity, diversity, identity, creative cities, cultural indicators, culturescapes, cultural studies, cultural history, culture and politics, multiculturalism, the arts as gateways to culture and cultures, arts education, arts policy, Canadian cultural development, Canadian cultural policy, community development and multiculturalism in Canada, Canadian cultural identity, and arts education and policy in Canada.

The continent Africa was the birthplace of the hominin subfamily and the genus Homo, including eight species, of which only Homo sapiens survive. Human culture in Africa is as old as the human race, and includes Neolithic (10,000 BC) rock engravings, the glacial age petroglyphs (a carving or line drawing on rock, especially one made by prehistoric people) of early hunter-gatherers in the dry grasslands of North Africa, the Nomes of Egypt (3100 BC), and ancient Egypt.
Though of many varied origins, African culture, especially Sub-Saharan African culture has been shaped by European colonialism, and is differentiated from North Africa from its lesser influence by Arab and Islamic culture.
Africa is home to innumerable tribes, ethnic and social groups, some representing very large populations consisting of millions of people, others are smaller groups of a few thousand.
Africa is a big continent and the food and drink of Africa reflect local influences, as also glimpses of colonial food traditions, including use of food products like peppers, peanuts and maize introduced by the colonizers. The African cuisine is a combination of traditional fruits and vegetables, milk and meat products. The African village diet is often milk, curds and whey. Exotic game and fish are gathered from Africa's vast area.
[edit]Overview
Africa has a number of overlapping cultures. The most conventional distinction is that between sub-Saharan Africa and the northern countries from Egypt to Morocco, who largely associate themselves with Arabic culture. In this comparison, the nations to the south of the Sahara are considered to consist of many cultural areas, in particular that of the Bantu language group.
Divisions may also be made between French Africa and the rest of Africa, in particular the former British colonies of southern and East Africa. Another cultural fault-line is that between those Africans living traditional lifestyles and those who are essentially modern. The traditionalists are sometimes subdivided into pastoralists and agriculturalists.
African art reflects the diversity of African cultures. The oldest existing art from Africa are 6,000-year old carvings found in Niger, while the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt was the world's tallest architectural accomplishment for 4,000 years until the creation of the Eiffel Tower. The Ethiopian complex of monolithic churches at Lalibela, of which the Church of St. George is representative, is regarded as another marvel of engineering.
The music of Africa is one of its most dynamic art forms. Egypt has long been a cultural focus of the Arab world, while remembrance of the rhythms of sub-Saharan Africa, in particular west Africa, was transmitted through the Atlantic slave trade to modern samba, blues, jazz, reggae, rap, and rock and roll. Modern music of the continent includes the highly complex choral singing of southern Africa and the dance rhythms of soukous, dominated by the music of the Democratic Republic of Congo. A recent development of the twenty first century is the emergence of African hip hop. In particular, a form from Senegal is blended with traditional mbalax. Recently in South Africa, a form of music related to house music known under the name Kwaito has developed, although the country has been home to its own form of South African jazz for some time, while Afrikaans music is completely distinct and composed mostly of traditional Boere musiek, and forms of folk and rock music.
[edit]Language
The continent of Africa speaks hundreds of languages and, if dialects spoken by various ethnic groups are also included, the number is much higher. All these languages and dialects do not have the same importance though, as some are spoken by only few hundred persons while others are spoken by millions. Among the most prominent languages spoken are Arabic, Swahili and Hausa. Very few countries of Africa use any single language and this is the reason the several African and European official languages often coexist.
The language of Africa present a unity of character as well as diversity, as is manifest in all the dimensions of Africa. Four prominent language families of Africa are:
Afro-Asiatic
Nilo-Saharan
Niger-Kordofanian
Khoisan
[edit]Anglo America (United States and Canada)

Main article: Culture areas of North America
Because of the economic dominance of the United States, the shared English language between the two countries, and the loose border (no visa is required to move between the countries), the culture of the United States and Canada is very similar. However, there are some notable differences. Among these is the fact that Canada has a large French-speaking minority, while the second-most common language in the United States is Spanish. In addition, Canada uses the metric system; the U.S. does not. Canadian spelling is usually more similar to British spelling, although the speech of Canadians is somewhat akin to that of Americans.
