I have spent time trying to compare the India culture with our Kenyan culture but ‘ours’ just doesn’t match up. I feel so disappointed that as Kenyans we’re letting go of our traditions and culture in the name of westernization. So sad….that it has reached a point Kenyan men and women are fighting each like buffaloes coz of gender equality,hare baba!
I am tired of hearing the media cause havoc btn men and women,CLASSIC FM being my number one culprit(why don’t you guys just get a life!)Am sooooo bored of all this gender hatred nonesence so for once am just going to close my eyes and wish I was Indian.Atcha!
Indian Culture treats guests as gods and takes care of them as though they were part and parcel of the family. Our manners and ways of communicating are important components in our culture. Even-though we have accepted modern means of living,improved our lifestyle and way of clothing…our values and beliefs should still remain the same. These values in a person should be deep rooted in their hearts,mind body and soul.Indians also hold’family life’ with great regard. Family is about joy and sharing,love and patience. These are values that have clearly died out in our Kenyan society.
Oooh,and the Indian dress code! The colorful saris and the beautiful bindis. THESE are just some of the many aspects that make one fall in love with this mysterious culture.Ethnic charm is exuded in this simple outfit(sari)and a woman’s dignity is truly brought out. Ornaments and flashy jewelery are part and parcel of every woman’s outfit.
I could go on and on about this rich and diverse culture but my time is running out. The future of our society depends on the preservation of our culture and traditions…so before joining the other Kenyans in the colossal wrecking of our traditions,take time to ponder about this.
We perish because of ignorance(my literature teacher once said)…so my advice…Kenyan men,please put aside ur arrogance and be the priests,protectors and providers we need(I learnt this from Mizizi hehehe!). And Kenyan women,enough with the unrealistic and crazy expectations,put aside the gender hatred speech (Shiku from Classic FM to be precise) and lets all build better channels of communication.
OK,have a great day everyone!
FYI: To greet a friend(In Ki-Hindi) we join hands(palms together),bow down in front of the other person and say’Namaste‘
The Lord Dwells in the heart of every human,therefore,joining of hands symbolizes the meeting of two souls…Thus when we join our hands,bow and say Namaste,we actually see the god in the other person.
