Modernisation cum Indelicacy
Guess a country which has got a suffix ‘Mata’ with its name and whose countrymen are easily provoked by some fellow social media posts, and hence they dishonour this suffix with all their might. Today’s thoughts are greatly influenced by these posts, and the same thing has happened to the taste of youth today. We are being driven by the popularity of a particular brand and the design. There has left no difference between fashion and indelicacy. We are leading a generation that is more focused on changing style. The youth today is more bothered to show off their modernization. There’s no denying that the mentality, the freedom of a girl, the support and understanding of her parents are judged by the dress she wears.
What if a family decides not to follow western culture as it is leading our society to vulgarity?
Would the family be considered outdated or be orthodox? And if a girl wears western dresses like shorts and tight jeans, does this mean she belongs to a family that accepts modernization? Is this criterion of judging one’s mentality correct? If a father let his daughter lead her life and keep her choice freely but not allowed to wear western vulgarity, will he be considered an out-hat man? And if a father let her girl wear jeans and tight fighting clothes, should he be regarded as a pimp? And here our society is entirely trapped, and we are having some completely orthodox people like Maulana Jarjis Ansari who considers fathers as pimp if he let his daughter wear tight dresses.
We also believe people are narrow-minded if they don’t let their daughter wear such dresses. Youths need to understand that the choice of clothing entirely lies with their own decisions. The decision should not be made in terms of peer pressure or just by getting influenced by the social media Handel’s of some celebrity or by anyone they follow. A girl wearing tight and short dresses find her companions wearing the same clothes, and she fears embarrassment in leading her taste. It’s not her choice, and it’s the choice of the environment she is living in. We need to understand that being a lot modernized doesn’t make you an updated and accessible mind person. Today, celebrities are the most critical factor in influencing society’s dressing sense, and of course, they are more concerned with promoting Western dresses.
We live in a country which has a lot of diversity in culture and tradition. Many holy books have different philosophies. One of them defines women to be a goddess and the purest soul on earth. There’s a theory that says the women and the Bhagavad Geeta are both related to femininity. Since the Bhagavad Geeta is the holy book and purest book, we keep the text covered with clothes. Hence, the women should also cover up their body in the same manner and indicates that we have to boycott Western culture, which has a trend of dresses that reveals a girl’s body in many ways. But really? Purity of a girl is all about the dress she wears? We are completely confused between modernization and narrow minds. We need to clear that cloth choice is not a big deal until you decide what is good for your body and what’s not. The girls lacking confidence in facing peers with their taste should have the confidence to show that their taste of wearing Indian culture is far better than the westerns. And the girls who are not allowed to wear western dresses because of some superstitions and narrow thinking must make people understand that their dresses are not the reason to provoke a man to be a stalker or a rapist. Neither the dresses decide their purity. And the people who are entirely driven by vulgar fashion must understand the difference between such indelicacy and acceptable trends.
