Since the Renaissance, the world started to shift the balance of power from the East to the West. In the last five centuries, especially the 19th and 20th century, a tremendous amount of scientific breakthroughs and innovations in the West, followed by the English and American industrialisation, colonialism and postcolonialism, marked the important historical moments. The way of life in the East have been subsequently affected. And in some extreme cases, it had completely uprooted many Asian cultures and lifestyles.
Western modernity, once nurtured by imports of ideas and physical goods from the East, now dominates the world in almost all aspects of life, including daily lifestyles. Where does the future look like for Asian lifestyles?
