Becky Rawle Posted about 1 year ago Are the changes in India, such as the influence of western culture, technology, and loss of tradition, altering the country for the better? Now that I look back on the question, I realize that I could have phrased it a little bit better. I know that I cannot base all my thoughts on India in what I learned in one class. The only way to really understand a country is to go there and immerse yourself in the real culture. The question came from a book called India Calling where the author gave stories of people who lived in India. Something that he and his characters were experiencing was a huge culture shift. I know it can be argued either way and depending on who you ask the question will vary. I was just wondering if people felt strongly about it one way or another. I do not think it is a useless question. I only hope that one day I can travel there and experience for myself.
