Abstract: Cultural Institutions are elements within a culture or subculture that are perceived to be important to, or traditionally valued among its members for their own identity. Examples of cultural institutions in modern western society are museums, churches, schools, work and the print media. Experts commonly name the following five cultural institutions as needed (at least in some way) in any society in order to survive: education, economic system, government, family, and religion. This paper examines the cultural institutions in Indian society which prevent the growth of the youngsters. The cultural institutions dealt in this paper are family, education and marriage. Parents themselves make choices for their children’s higher education. They fail to consider their children’s interest. They pressurize their children into a crazy race for more marks, a race which has never benefited anyone. The modern trend among people is to make their daughter a doctor, and son an engineer, influenced by the society.
