An essay is a piece of writing that revolves around a particular theme and contains the academic opinions of the person writing it. A basic essay mainly consists of three parts: Introduction, Body, and Conclusion.
Is tradition an enemy of progress?
Tradition can be defined as a practice, which has been followed in the past, going back hundreds or thousands of years. Almost all traditions are meaningless. India is perhaps the only country that glorifies and practices traditions, good or bad, but most of them are bad to some extent. Examples are many. Ceremonies during weddings, funerals and pujas are a few examples.

When a newlywed Hindu couple enters the house, the bride will probably put her right foot first at the front entrance, as if the left foot is not required for walking. No one can provide a credible reason for this meaningless practice because it has been practised without question for generations.
Similarly, a dead body should be placed on the floor with the head in a certain direction. What if we put it on the other side? Surely, the dead will not complain. Other traditions, such as ‘Sati,’ which was made outlawed a long time ago but is still practised in some areas of India, raise the question of why the poor woman must sacrifice her life if her husband dies first.
So, some practices were blindly followed and passed on to the next generation. Now science has revealed many mysteries of nature and man has greatly increased his knowledge.
Therefore, we must erase the so-called traditions of which mainly Indians are so proud. Rather, it is shameful to follow these meaningless traditions. Tradition is undoubtedly the enemy of progress.
