Impact of Modernization on Indian society

Indian society is very old and surviving even after many ups and down and social issues. This article involves a brief about the Indian society and impact of the social process of modernization and westernization on it. How the Indian society has implemented these both processes and to what extent.

Society is a platform that gives a shape to the people's livings, demands, aspirations, needs and all kinds of growths. When numerous people having diverse mindsets, aspirations and demands yet live together for a common cause is what we understand by the society. A society may either include people of the same interests or people of diverse interests but there always lies a commonality among all the people who composite the society.

A society can be symbolized as a human body that composites of various organ parts (eyes, ears, mouth, kidney, lever etc) but they all work together for a common cause and that is the living of the being. Similarly the society has different institutions as its parts such as family system, education system, organizing system and administration system those all work together for the common causes that are the livelihood and all kinds of satisfaction of the individuals. Society has many forms and aspects. There are various types of societies depending upon the interests of the individuals like; civilized society, modern society, class society, western society and so on. Each society runs for common causes of the individuals living into that society.

Indian society has always strengthened its basic institutions devoid of all the discriminations, racism, and differences. At the same time I do not deny the fact that the Indian society has had gone through many upheavals of racism, un-touchability and castism, but it is still very commendable on its part that those all turbulences did not let the Indian society to a break down. Every society goes through a sequence of modifications, changes and alterations and these all changes give rise to the social issues in a society. Indian society has gone and still going through various changes, modifications and stratifications. There are many existing social issues in Indian society that surely need a kind attention. There are social issues like castism, ethnicity, class stratification, deprivation of rights etc which have taken over the form of being; silent but progressing gradually.

Discussion of these issues would divert the concept line of the article so let's go back again to the topic. We have discussed that every society is bound to go through many changes and even many advancements, so as with the Indian society. No society can remain static. Society is a dynamic entity. Changes and modification done into the lives of the people directly bring the changes within the society. Because it is the people only who composite the society so, any change into the life styles, attitudes, thinking and working patterns of people would automatically bring a change within the society.
