Promoter & Director. Jiwa Foods
The world is becoming smaller and cultures are going to have an impact on each other. These changes occur in a very gradual, subtle and natural manner. In my opinion, the Marwari community can discern between the changes that are necessary for progress and those that are just passing fads. Many Marwari families recognise the fact that the new generation is very creative and realise that as long as people do what they love, there is no limit to the success that they can achieve. So they are fairly open-minded as far as career options are concerned. I think not being open to cross-cultural marriages was a way of preserving their culture. However, with changing times, even these are not so uncommon anymore. As an animal lover, I am a vegetarian by choice and understand the basis of this tradition. But each person should be free to make his choice in these matters. One only needs to refrain from excesses.
