How Economics and Politics Have Changed Indian Culture
Politics have changed Indian culture by turning people against each other that were once family. When people turn on each other they go their own way and do what they want. This means that more traditions were made because of politics. An example of were politics turned people against each other was when India and Pakistan fought over Kashmir state. They have fought two wars over this area and the conflict just keeps on growing. Both India and Pakistan had told each other that they had created nuclear weapons. Their have been bombings since the announcement because the tension only escalates between them. Through all this people part their ways from the big group because they have different ideas and thoughts about what is happening. People switch religions, where they live, and political parties if they don't see eye to eye with the one they are with now. This can play a big part in the culture changing because people change their way of life when they change their practices.
