Identity and progress

I often hear talk from people about how India is losing its identity. "We are shamelessly aping American culture," say some, while others bemoan shopping malls, mobile phones, the large number of cars on the street and so on, as they eventually conclude that globalisation must be a bad thing.

Well, in response to a similar lament about Ireland, Don Boudreaux of Cafe Hayek has a fine reply that I recommend you read in full: Blarney.

Update: Gaurav Sabnis has more on the subject.
