Inheritance is essential in one’s life. Many salivate over the property while the priceless customs and traditions are not given their due importance. With the incoming foreign cultures and norms it is indeed unnerving to see what an impact they are having in eroding the native religious values. A person gets inspired easily. It is in human nature to strongly feel that distant field looks greener and that there is greener grass on the other side. This brings in change. Internet plays an active role in this. The widespread knowledge in an attractive way influences many to try a different course and one easily gets infatuated. Internet connects the whole world inspiring the inquisitive person for change. Often the wrong is also enforced. As a result now the religious values are restricted to the old. The young and the youth feel shy to express their traditions and often feel cherished in being practical disregarding what is based on beliefs and following the factual. What was taught in the young days is considered conventional while what is learnt through internet is assumed to be not only correct but also most appropriate. Internet is responsible for bringing the farthest closest to the heart. Different opinions are presented through the various sources that are often destructive rather than being constructive.
But one can also argue that there are few things which are so instilled in us since our birth that they become a part of our identity without our realising it. They can never be separated from us nor can our belief ever be destroyed even though there might come such periods of lapses where we feel otherwise. It is true that internet presents different views and the different views are both in favour and against the subject of study. When viewed in the right frame of mind one may get motivated to the suitability of what one possesses. With the correct guidance from the correct sources belief is strengthened and one gets the power to influence others as well. Internet allows one to deeply probe his customs and traditions, satisfying one’s curiosity and letting him see the wisdom behind the words. Internet helps in highlighting the good and building the kind of trust that baby’s innocent eyes possess for his parents. The religious values one learns in his childhood days needs to be nurtured. Internet provides exposure and with exposure one should build and expand his inheritance such that the future may come out as a better past with holding all that is handed down from generation to generation.
“The Church sees these media as ‘gifts of God’ which, in accordance with his providential design, unite men in brotherhood and so help them to cooperate with his plan for their salvation” – Pope Pius XII
