Mumbai: Western musicians, artists and pop culture have been growing in popularity in India for a while and Indian artists and vocalists have been celebrated in other countries equally, but while every culture and genre has something unique to offer, the self proclaimed guardians of Indian culture seem to have a problem with any cultural exchange.

The latest to join the ranks was Dr Subhash Chandra, who after recently stopping Pakistani tv shows on his channel Zee Zindagi, expressed displeasure with the Coldplay concert in Mumbai. He tweeted saying he was saddened seeing the young population drinking, smoking and dancing at the concert, as he wondered if they knew ‘Rabinder’ Sangeet.



While the media baron went on to educate people about the rich culture of our country, he seemed to spell Rabindra Sangeet as Rabinder Sangeet and this was enough for Twitter users to have a field day with Dr Subhash Chandra.







Meanwhile Subhash Chandra did respond to the criticism on the micro-blogging site, and defended himself by saying that his first language was Hindi and not English.





While he asked if being weak in English made him less “modern”, we wonder how people’s connect with their culture can be questioned on basis of their appreciation of Coldplay and their choice to drink or smoke?
