Why Do Some Indians Hate Indian Culture?

 

RANBAAZ YUVA explores the reasons behind the negative attitude some Indians have towards their own culture. It discusses the targeting of spiritual gurus with baseless allegations, the adoption of Western culture over Indian culture, and the need for a shift in mindset and education. The speaker also suggests strategic investments and social emancipation as ways to create pride and influence in foreign countries. They emphasize the importance of unity based on pride in Indian civilization and culture.

The host discusses the increasing popularity of Indian culture in Western countries, with many people adopting practices like yoga and meditation. He mentions that even Hollywood celebrities and prominent scientists have been inspired by Indian spirituality and texts like the Vedas and Upanishads. However, he also highlights another trend in India where some people dislike their own culture and criticize it. This section raises the question of why this mentality exists and explores the possibility of changing it.

the speaker discusses the targeting of spiritual gurus like Sadhguru, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and Baba Ramdev with baseless allegations and accusations. While acknowledging that these gurus are not perfect and may have made mistakes, the speaker emphasizes that many of the allegations are absurd and serve to tarnish their image. Additionally, the speaker highlights the role of common Indians in preserving Indian culture and religion, despite the challenges of appeasement politics and cultural degradation in media and pop culture. The speaker concludes by discussing the irony of Indians attacking their own culture while desperately trying to follow Western trends. They acknowledge that there is nothing wrong with appreciating Western practices but argue against blindly adopting them for the sake of looking cool.

 The speaker highlights the trend of some Indians adopting Western culture while degrading their own culture. They provide examples such as the promotion of English over Hindi, the discrimination against traditional clothing in restaurants, and the favoritism towards Western festivals like Christmas. The speaker attributes this phenomenon to the British colonial rule, which gave rise to an education system aimed at creating Indians with English attitudes and culture. Even after independence, the situation did not improve as the bureaucrats who were trained under this system continued to hold power in education. The speaker also criticizes Maulana Abul Kalam Azad's emphasis on Islamic brotherhood and the communist influence on institutions like JNU, which further perpetuated the degradation of Indian culture. Despite these challenges, the speaker acknowledges the presence of nationalists within the education system as a miraculous phenomenon.

The excerpt highlights a sentiment of negativity towards Indian culture, claiming that nothing positive has come from India and that any positive aspects are brought in from outside, such as by Muslims or Christians. There is a concern that if Indians do not take ownership of their spiritual intellectual property, other countries will appropriate it. However, there are also rays of hope, with the popularity of Bollywood films and a cultural revival happening in India. The excerpt mentions the success of certain movies and the support for cultural events like the construction of Ram Mandir. The need for a shift in mindset and education is emphasized, with the introduction of a new education policy meant to instill pride and a connection to Indian history. Additionally, economic development is seen as crucial to fostering confidence and pride in Indian culture.

The speaker discusses the role of strategic investments in creating pride and influence in foreign countries, similar to what China has done. They suggest that India can also make strategic investments to create a positive opinion of its culture abroad. Furthermore, they highlight the importance of social emancipation, unification, and decolonization through Hindutva, claiming it to be the world's most successful decolonization exercise. The speaker emphasizes that unity in India should be based on pride in their civilization, breaking barriers of caste, region, and language. They conclude by asking for opinions on how to connect Indians more closely with their civilization and culture.
