Dreadful Impact of Indian ‘Yellow Culture’ on Bangladeshi young generation

Md. Abdun Noor Shaheen

Lecturer in Sociology

Generally, culture refers the customs and beliefs, art, way of life and social organization of a particular country or group. And, of course, we have a very rich culture which we can feel proud of. But the shocking fact is that that our culture is now under a great threat because of foreign cultural aggression. Indian cultural practices, have especially added a new flavour to this extent and satellite TV channels run by India have made the path of aggression easier. Our young generation is so much affected and influenced by those channels that they are trying to practise what they see on the television screen. So from my point of view, Indian cultural practices are now turning as a threat rather than mere source of amusement.

Some Concrete Facts of Indian forms of Culture: Indian films, for instance, are now at the epicenter of the culture wars. They are corrupting our youth. There are about ten Indian channels, showing movies and movie songs round the clock. We are quite stunned at many of the shows in Indian TV channels that are apparently for children. The Indian channels are full of contests when ten year old girls are dressed up and made up like Bollywood actresses, rotating to some hit Hindi songs, making all those suggested moves in front of thrilled audiences and approving panel of judges. Then, there are singing contests where again, little boys and girls sing out their hearts some vulgar Hindi songs. We also find the identical shows in our own channels with the same ridiculous dance sequences performed by pre-teens, wearing layers of makeup and making moves that would put any Dhaliwood film extra to shame. Where are the children, we begin to wonder. Oh No! They have been replaced…...

...ndian cultureIndian Culture focusing on Hinduism Marriages are religiously, economically, politically, and socially oriented and they are usually arranged by the elders and extended family members. Many of the youth in India prefer arranged marriages, as it gives them the time and the ability to enjoy their youth without the constant worry of relationships and finding a mate. Many Indians look at marrying a person they don’t know, “a lifetime to learn to love them”, as to the American idea of learning a person inside and out before marriage. It can be said that an arranged marriage in India is not based on feelings, but rather on commitment. In American everyone makes their own decision on who they would like to marry, they marry for who they love. Wedding ceremonies can be expensive, and costs are typically paid by the parents of the female. It is not uncommon for middle-or upper-class weddings to have a guest list of over 500 people. Often, a live instrumental band is played. Vedic rituals are performed and then the family and friends bless the couple. Food is served to the entire guest list. The wedding celebrations can take up to one week depending on the practice in that different part of India. The woman takes the man’s name as their own. In American weddings can be cheap and can just go to the courthouse if money is tight. Most of the time a woman takes the man’s last name, but can keep her own if she wants. The married Hindu women in different parts of India follow...

Media Impact on Youth Violence

...Media Impact On Youth Violence Today’s media has influenced the youth to become more violent in the sense that what children see in the media is what they will most likely try to imamate. The impact the media has on today’s youth has brainwashed them into doing acts of violence along with making bad decisions to fit in. I remember when I was a kid growing up I watched the news from time to time and one day while watching the news randomly like I would sometimes I seen that the government was attempting to outlaw the production of urban music because in their belief it was supposedly violent and not to be heard by the youth. I followed this story on the news for a while and after a couple of weeks I found out that some of the youth was doing violent actions after listening to urban music. I wanted full proof so I watched some of my friends and how they acted after listening to urban music and as bad as it seemed the government had a point that couldn’t be augured against. Urban music had influenced drugs, sex, money, crime, and gangs the music that I listened to and liked had become the music that birthed many of today’s criminals. The first point I would like to make would be the fact that music has had a major influence in the way the youth acts and how violent they become when hearing certain kind of music. I have seen kids at my school acting wild and violent when listening to artist like Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flames, and Lil Wayne. I have seen artist like......

What is the definition of culture? It sounds like a very simple question, if you search the Internet, read books, talk to different people you will get different responses. However, if you pay close attention the answer is basically the same. To simplify things for the purpose of this paper I will use Merriam Webster Dictionary definition of culture: culture is the beliefs, customs, arts, etc., of a particular society, group, place, or time a particular society that has its own beliefs, ways of life, art, etc. a way of thinking, behaving, or working that exists in a place or organization (such as a business).

The Impact of Media on Youth Violence

...The Impact of Media on Youth Violence COM/156 April 26, 2013 Dr. P. University of Phoenix The Impact of Media on Youth Violence Children today do not spend as much time outside playing as compared to 25 years ago. In that time aggression rates in children have increased and here is why: Mass Media. Has anyone ever wondered what children are watching and what impact it is having on the children? Are parents aware of the types of video games their children are watching or what sites they are viewing when on the Internet? Would it be shocking to hear that children will see more than 16,000 murders and 200,000 violent acts because of mass media by the time they are 18? Aggression in children can be linked to violence in mass media, the amount of time spent on mass media, and desensitization to mass media. Children often have aggressive tendencies that can be linked back to mass media they are partaking in: movies and television shows containing violence, as well as playing video games that contain violence. Huesmnn (2007) wrote research evidence has accumulated over the past half-century that exposure to violence on television, movies, and most recently in video games increases the risk of violent behavior on the viewer’s part…the recent increase in the use of mobile phones, text messaging, e-mail, and chat rooms by our youth have opened new venues for social interaction in which aggression can occur.

Indian Wedding Culture

...V.I.P article submitted by: Sravani Gullapalli (Phd. Student -Chemical Engineering) Aparna Raju Sagi (Phd. Student -Chemical Engineering) Indian Wedding Traditions One billion people, more than 1600 spoken languages, 28 culturally different states, over 9 religions, one country – India defines diversity. This diversity, seen in every realm of Indian life starting from food & clothing to customs & traditions, is reflected in Indian marriages as well. Thus, describing all the nuances of the country’s wedding traditions in a single piece of writing would truly be a herculean task. This article is a humble effort to give a glimpse into a colorful and cultural extravaganza – the Indian wedding. We are restricting to Hindu weddings in this article. In our culture, marriage symbolizes not just the sacred union of two individuals, but of the coming together of two families and extended families as well! Their level of involvement is so profound that typically the family decides the bride/groom. In fact, even till a few decades ago the bride and the groom saw each other for the first time only on their wedding day. This trend has changed in urban areas, and in the present day, youngsters have a better say in choosing their life partner. Families search for eligible partners for their children through word of mouth or marriage priests primarily. However with the internet revolution in India online matrimonial sites are also becoming quite a hit! Arranged marriages are strictly......

It allows people from all walks of life all over the world to be connected. Use of the Internet is growing at an unbelievable rate. So fast parents are not always able to keep up with it. The Internet is a great resource to people of all ages, but with that it brings some negative. The Internet can have a huge impact on the youth of today. How it impacts this very vulnerable group of people will be explored in this paper. What Is The Internet? Before we can establish how, we must first explore what. Before the invention of the Internet, nothing had the same capabilities. Inventions such as the telegraph, the telephone, the radio and the computer, helped to prepare the world for what was to come. None of these can even begin to reach the number of people and amount of information as the Internet. The Internet Society says that the Internet allows people to communicate with no consideration to their physical location. The Internet allows us to transmit information and communicate with others throughout the world. (Leiner et al., n.d.). The first host computer was connected in September 1969.

...India is known to be the chaotic canvas of art and spirituality and this nature of this diversified country delights each and every one with its gaiety. The buzzing nation’s mind-blowing mix of exotic landscapes and intricately woven heritage bristles with compelling art exhibitions, pompous festivals and novel forms of highly creative expression. Behaviour of people, the way they communicate, their dressing styles, food habits form an integral part of the country’s culture, but when it comes to describing the culture of India, it can be said that the country is a cocktail of cultures and that is exactly the beauty of India. India has the proud parent of some of the greatest of religions namely Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism and Jainism, and the country also embraces Islam and Christianity. People belonging to all these religions live together with harmony and this diversity promises 365 days of joys, colours, rituals and appealing cultural exchange. India is flavoured with the unity of rich culture whilst it takes a dip in diversity of the many religions that live under one sky, and it is true celebration when this sky is painted with joys of people beneath. This is exactly what happens during the international kite festival of Gujarat. Festivals in India form occasions for celebrations that bring everyone together and festivals like Holi, Diwali and Uttarayan which involve fun activities provide a brilliant stage for people from all religions to get together and be the......

Impacts of Globalisation on Indian Economy

...IMPACTS OF GLOBALIZATION ON INDIAN ECONOMY INTRODUCTION TO GLOBALIZATION: Globalization has many meanings depending on the context and on the person who is talking about. It refers to the increasing global relationships of culture, people and economic activity. Guy Brainbant: says that the process of globalisation not only includes opening up of world trade, development of advanced means of communication, internationalisation of financial markets, growing importance of MNC’s, population migrations and more generally increased mobility of persons, goods, capital, data and ideas but also infections, diseases and pollution. The term globalization refers to the integration of economies of the world through uninhibited trade and financial flows, as also through mutual exchange of technology and knowledge. Ideally, it also contains free inter-country movement of labour. The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia defines globalization as: "a widely-used term that can be defined in a number of different ways. When used in an economic context, it refers to the reduction and removal of barriers between national borders in order to facilitate the flow of goods, capital, services and labour... although considerable barriers remain to the flow of labour... Globalization is not a new phenomenon. It began towards the end of the nineteenth century, but it slowed down during the period from the start of the first World War until the third quarter of the......
