Playboy Enterprises, known for its adult magazine for men Playboy, is reportedly planning to launch its accessories, apparel, etc., in India by year end targeting young adults, and Indo-americans are skeptical, calling it crude westernization.

Indo-american statesman Rajan Zed, while welcoming trade opportunities between India and the West, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that reckless flooding of Indian markets with Western icons and trends would lead society away from traditional value system. West had lot of wonderful things to offer but everything Western was not always good.

Zed, who is chairperson of Indo-american Leadership Confederation, argued that India belonged to an ancient civilization with certain set of norms and we were proud of that. Crude westernization was not the correct path to take as everything Western was not always right and appropriate for societies like India.

Rajan Zed pointed out that just for plain mercantile g reed, we should not attempt to destroy the age old traditions, moral standards and value system with the irrelevant arguments of keeping with the times, globalization, etc.
