The Indian culture at the moment is undergoing a transformation, standing at the midpoint between the west and east. During this process of acculturation, the values and traditions of the Indians are slowly being displaced and they have to struggle with fulfilling the requirements of cultures that are poles apart.
Therefore, I think it is better for them to completely give up their old ways and mindset if they are to move forward quickly and without much conflict. However, if the more prejudiced Indians decide to resist this acculturation, then, in my opinion, it would become a violent effort since those who have tried to adopt western ways would not be willing to turn back. However, it remains for the Indians to decide how they want to mould their future and emerge as a nation in the new world.
