Touches upon issues that have caused concern for parents raising their children in USA or UK. But with a rapidly changing India, we do have to question are holding on to outdated images? What is more important is imparting basic values and raising a good person.
I agree with you Revathi that basic values are important and there is no substitute for those - what I am trying to do is delineate cultural aspects of being Indian and helping children grow up with a balanced view of India. I am against both extremes - clinging to an outmoded view of India and bringing up children in a very conservative fashion or sliding to the other extreme and denying your ethnic heritage and becoming western in every respect. It is all about balance.
