Are We Going In The Right Way????

Things are continuously changing.  People are continuously in a competition to modernize them and compete with others, in the aspect of lifestyle, the way of life, extravagant manner and behavior too. But, the harsh reality is that, in this race, we are forgetting our customs and traditions and we opt to adopt others' customs, despite thinking whether the way we are going is right for us or not. This is something we often talk about, still, it is neglected.

This blog is with reference to some of the stuff being shown on media channels and social media pages these days. I just watched a commercial of one of the most popular beverage brands of Pakistan and was completely disappointed by its script. The commercial showed a group of three friends enjoying dinner at a dhaaba and the food looked spicier than expected when enjoyed with that drink. One of the girls framed in that commercial started shouting and abusing. The cursing words were censored, however, anybody can imagine the way the girl was cursing and showing respect to mothers and sisters (sarcastic)! Such types of conversations usually occur when anybody is fighting or anybody is illiterate. On the contrary, these words, curses, abuses are now part of everybody's daily conversations and hashtags. That commercial was extremely embarrassing! I wonder how such a popular company of Pakistan does a cheap act just to create hype of its product or just to gain viewers' attention!

Another incident which entirely shocked me! There was a comedy theatre play in a famous theatre and arts academy in Karachi. It was a less comedy more vulgarity based show, in my opinion. The dialogues, scripts, costumes, the unnecessary interaction with the co-actors, all were enough to put the audience into shame.

We are influenced by foreign customs and practices so much that we have taken ours for granted. Media shapes public perspectives and influences the audience. So, this issue must be kept alive in or conversions, lectures, blogs and other media. Secondly, media officials should take proper notice of that in order to save the generation from behaving worse and revive the old practices again. The content and the actions must have decency.  

Graduating in mass communication from Karachi University, content writer, blogger and a journalist to be, aiming to serve the field of journalism with full efforts and skills in future
