Path

We had deviated ourselves from our vision of social equality and welfare society because we were in an illusion of self-proclaimed saturation and we called it as our Independence. Thanks to globalisation and consumerism, we have lost everything now, including language, culture and our own identity. It is not about Truth and Reality, but Deception.

Nice 55er... but u know what... identity is a strage thing... i dont believe my culture or my language are my identity... i feel its my beliefs... we have lost alot of these identities thanks to globalization... but i call them evolution... its a process we cannot stop however we may hate it... anyways nice 55er... very different from the rest...


cheers!

I have very limited understanding of 55

I like 55!

Megha said...

hmm...very thoughtful, but I differ from your thoughts...I agree with Tavish that it's evolution. We have a few losses b'coz of globalization but we have gained too...our economy has gained tremendously with outsourcing.

But I uunderstand your point about loosing identity. That happens when people start following different culture blindly.

Nice. A very different take on the prompt.

A challenging request to review what personal identity really means and even if it has a value in our world!

Mahesh,
Actually it's ok to have a different view...it confirms that we think :) right ?

@ Megha,


Yea, as an anthropologist i was bit excited to open the box of evolution.
Yes, it is all abt our perceptions :)

One thing is clear. Nine percent GDP growth may give us place at the global high table, but it sharpens social conflicts at home like Naxalism
