I strongly believe in the western culture. Whenever there use to be any debate or argument, I always sided with the lifestyle in the west. My friends use to get so furious on this.. But.. whatever.. :P
When it comes to the living standards, obviously you feel its way more comfortable and convenient according to ones wishes and desires. You don't have to answer anyone about anything... you don't have to live the way others expect you to live.. you don't need to wear a plastic smile and greet someone whom you don't like.. you don't have to pretend things.. you just have to be simple, straight and be yourself irrespective of getting liked or disliked in anyone's list!
This is just one aspect. Examples are plenty. When it comes to equality of men and women or giving the equal stature, these people never hesitate.. coz this is how they're born.. this is what they have seen since their childhood.. If a woman is the breadwinner of the house, then its not a matter of shame for husband.. he equally shares the house responsibilities with his spouse and if man is the breadwinner, then obviously his wife will take care of his house.. but this doesn't mean that his wife is less in anything.. he will treat her with equal respect even is shes not earning.. shes doing hell lot of things by taking care of his house. And managing a house is a task! And then only they both are able to make a home together and run everything smoothly.
But when it comes to relationships.. all of us know how fragile they are there.. nothing is predictable.. anything can happen with anyone.. in a single moment of agony people become so weak that they simply forget who they are and with whom they are.. 'Sorry' is just another word I feel! (Imagine a situation where a guy or a gal has dated 4 people in 6 months for example. To every partner, when in love, they say, "I love you.. always have, always will..".) And when they come back to the first person, they say the same..!!! I mean come on.. are you freaking kidding me??!! If it was this serious then what was with the other people??!! or even if it wasn't, then what was the need to say the same dialogue to the other three??!!
I think its really hard to find your true mate there.
In India, a girl thinks like a 100 times before falling for anyone.. Girls always try to maintain this firewall around them.. reason being conservative society, strict parents, not wanting anyone to know about it coz its still not very open the way it is outside the country.. and so falling in love happens once or twice or may be a few times more but not like firangs.. where its like.. what they say.. ek k baad ek.. fir do.. fir teen.. chaar.. panch.. das.. bees.. and the numbers continue!
And I feel breakups are bad.. they tarnish a person.. they make the person completely negative.. they break you down.. you start to have trust issues.. the thought of love totally gets erased from one's mind.. loneliness takes birth.. happiness vanishes.. it gets hard to see the silver lining.. there are people who get violent too.. turn into a criminal may be.. and that's bad! Real bad!
And it takes a long time to come out of this mess..!
I may be wrong.. my point may differ from a hell lot of people.. but then.. I'm free to have my own set of opinion and perspective!
This way we are still better.. we save ourselves from endless relationships.. and thus get saved from endless breakups.. :P
There are other factors too that play WWE in my mind, but will jot them down sometime later.. :P
Will be glad to know your views as well.. :)
