Oft we come across incidents which allegedly disrupt our ‘culture’.Oft we come across a group of jingoistic individuals ostensibly presenting themselves as saviours of our culture.Oft we see a zilch of an incident take shape of a hoopla for being ‘anti-cultural’.It is groovy that we have inherited a multi-cultural,a multi-ethnic society,but is it altogether a sin to think a bit far away from all of it?

The blending of the western culture in our society is not obscure to any mortal eye.But the vociferous protest against it,is embarrassing for a visionary India.The ‘pub-culture’ has already borne witness to the wrath of self acclaimed soldiers of culture.The latest victim of India’s adamant mind is ‘legalisation of homosexuality’.My contemplative mind,fails in every sincere attempt,when it tries to reason out,the ballyhoo surrounding it.If there is a consensus of two individuals,which culture prohibits them to pursue happiness.It is dismaying and causing consternation that our ‘religious-heads’ are thinking it all to be ‘anti-social’.I am afraid all that is left now in our ‘culture’ is a group of men,tired of their ‘lost-identity’,given up to every failure to lead a successful life,advocating the sermon for a ‘cultural-society’.We,the naive,call them ‘religious-heads’.The reason they give to patronage their orthodox behaviour is -“This has been going on for ages,this is gods way to do it”.I can’t help but think,is everything that has been going on for ages a supreme verity?And if that was the case why were ‘sati’, ‘untouchability’ and other menaces banned,after all even they were a part of our ‘culture’ once.

Any astute person would see that our culture is not being ‘destroyed’,it is evolving,like it has over the many years.A culture is never destroyed,it always evolves.But there are always protests to ‘change’.There is always just one more inexorable mind left.I am wishful that the higher minds decide what is best for our society pragmatically and not spiritually.For change is indispensable for a stable society.
