Traditional products keep the locals in touch with their culture and tradition.They also become a source of earning,when tourists show interest in these products and buy them.

Definitely,it should.If governments promotes traditional products,only then these will remain alive,otherwise these products will die and so will our culture and tradition.
4) Do you think because of globalization countries are adopting each other traditions?
Yes,as countries know about these traditions,they adopt them.In a way it is good.Diwali is celebrated by many people outside India also.We have also started celebrating Valentine’s Day,Grandparents’ Day,Father’s Day and Mother’s Day etc.
5) Why people buy traditional products because of their traditional value or because of they are handmade?
People buy these products for both these reasons.Handmade things have their own charm and only handmade thinks can have the real traditional value.When things are made in bulk using machines,then the whole traditional value of the thing is lost.
6) Did the traditional things of the past have more value than the present things?
Yes,of course.We must remember that the things we consider new and modern today will become traditions for the future.So,the traditional things of the past were different and as time passes those things become antiques and so become more valuable.
7) Did the traditional things of the past have better quality than the present things?
Not necessarily.The things made today also have good quality.Actually,it depends on the person making those things.There have always been good craftsmen and bad craftsmen.
8) Is it necessary to protect traditions?
Yes,of course.Traditions are our roots.They bind us to our past.Without traditions we would feel cut off from our past.
9) Do you think teenagers should learn about traditions?
Yes,they should be taught.Otherwise,they will feel cut off from the past.As it is,the teenagers of today are being lured by the global culture and are drifting away from traditions.
