“The disintegration of Indian culture is a process that has been slow but steady – much like the boiling frog apologue. If a frog is suddenly put in boiling water, it jumps out, but if it is put in tepid water that is then slowly brought to a boil, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. It is because we are unwilling to react to or be aware of the sinister threats that arise gradually rather than suddenly, that we become the losers in the long run. Abandoning our culture has become a norm, but this existence has not been written about
in depth,” she said.
