In the past people wore their traditional clothes and followed their culture. These days most people wear similar clothes and therefore look very similar to one another. Do you think this is a positive or a negative development?

[shc_shortcode class=”shc_mybox”]Today, we do not belong to a big planet Earth; we belong to a small global village. In this
shrunken world, the cultures have also come closer and as a result people all over the world
are dressing up in similar clothes and looking similar. This is largely a positive development.

On the positive side, people have become more tolerant of each other and are accepting
each other in a much better way. They have a feeling that they are all connected even
though there are different religions and ways of life. For example, when the tsunami
disaster occurred, the whole world felt the devastation. People from all over the world
offered their support and sent money to help victims. Instead of saying that different parts
of the world should deal with their own problems, everyone made other countries problems
their own. This shared belief of safety and happiness brought people together for comfort
and relief. Every culture can agree on such beliefs. What is more, the idea that the world is
shrinking its’ differences and uniting, makes us stronger and more capable to accomplish
anything.

Another positive aspect of this culture exchange is that all over the world people are
accepting the good points of each other’s culture and this also makes them more aware of
the good points of their own culture. For example, the western clothing, jeans and T-shirts,
is very comfortable and easy to manage. Therefore, people all over the world have adopted
it. In the same way, we can see the inclination of many foreigners towards our cultural
values and living style. Our holy books, ‘Geeta’ and ‘Ramayana’ have gone global. Yoga and
meditation have gained worldwide popularity. Our Indian classical dances are being taught
in western countries and such classes are not monopolized by the Indian students; they
have a diversity of students from all over the world.

On the negative side, some people feel that it is leading to a loss of global diversity and
people are forgetting their own cultural and traditional values. This seems true on the face
value, but I still feel that there are some deep rooted cultural differences which can never
be forgotten. Wearing similar clothes and accepting other people’s cultures can never make
anyone completely aloof from one’s own culture.

To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that the worldwide similarity among people is
largely a positive trend. In the past people wore their traditional clothes and followed their culture
