Culture is defined as the collective and diverse customs and traditions of art, architecture, laws, customs, music, literature, lifestyle, philosophy, politics, and religion found in human societies. Over the years, culture of various countries have undergone significant changes and it is safe to say that presently, globalism has ensured that we are now more exposed to various cultures of the world than earlier in the history of this world. Media and immigration have fuelled this process and now we see how the culture of one country is influenced by many others. The most famous example of this is the United States of America which is a potpourri of various cultures.
Look at how we eat Chinese food like noodles or consume American food from outlets like KFC and McDonalds. On the other hand, Thiru Kumar's Dosa is so popular in New York City that is referred to as Dosa man over there. Chicken Tikka is a favourite in many restaurants in the West and is considered Britain's national dish. Closer to home, paneer pizza is a perfect example of a blend of Desi and foreign cuisine. Asian cuisine is the fastest growing cuisine in the United States.
Fashion is another area where we see this phenomenon. We use western cosmetic brands, we wear jeans, crop tops, suits and tie, but also we see women wearing kurta with shorts and men wear Indian attire with a western tinge. The saree is as Desi as an Indian attire can get but did you know that many popular figures in the west have also worn it and absolutely rocked in it? Anna Kournikova, Selena Gomez, Halle Berry, Paris Hilton, Oprah Winfrey, Katherine Heigl and Shakira are just a few names who have donned a saree.
