civilisation or westernisation?

I went to spencer plaza for shopping with my friend and i spent some 3 hrs there.on seeing the varieties in every item and peoples buying capcity i really wondered.but one thing that caught my attention was the western outlook and functioning style of almost all business outlets.The playing of western music,queries in english at all customers,etc...
cannot we become world standard by folowing our own customs,values,etc..or civilisation means westernisation? Iam thinking.....

Ritchie street!!

I went to ritchie street today morning to buy a computer for my friend Bhaskar.as, many of us know the street is full of electronic shops.But one thing i observed was many of the shop owners(nearly 95%) are of north indian origin.The very few local people i noticed are coolies.while appereciating the immigrants(in an inter state sense) business skills,i really wondered about the natives business interest.they same situation at Lingi chetty st,Thambu chetty st., etc..
what could be reason? any answers...
