As from above statements its clear that we are very different breed of people as compared to other parts of world, we are also known for hospitality. There are many beautiful places to visit.
My point is-we are very much immersed into our traditional mentality but the new generation guys & gals of my ages are changing by leaps and bounds. its era of LINKIN PARK(rock music)instead of kishore kumar. Ipods and cell phones is termed as status symbols not just gadgets.Levis,spykar,killer etc( brands)gives them their style quotient as well as provide them confidence,attire is considered prime most important thing,westernization.
But the best part is i can still see those young bloods in temples standing in ques to worship,respecting there parents in same way as previous generations used to do,best part is they still love home made cuisines.
Traditional and modern stuffs can be seen properly weaved into each other.
So many contradictory things in the same country.Unbelievable
Love u India
