The portable, people of different parts of the world

The only thing that remains “unchanged” is the change itself.
Change is the infinitely ongoing process with reference of the time. In this
modern era, many things which were not part of our origin or culture have now
become essential for us. By the adaptation of habits from other culture, the
improvement takes place and the changes are merged within. Globalization is the
main factor which has affected most in this never ending process of change.

 

In easy words, globalization can be define as the transfer of
ideas, knowledge, values, emotions, technology, economy and wealth, etc. on the
global platform in the way of changing or reshaping the cultural boundaries and
improvement for the necessity. For example, when we wake up morning we change
our t-shirt which is made in UK. We than use the Volkswagen car to go to market
that is made in Germany. We purchase electronics, spices, books, etc which are
made in South Korea, India and China respectively. It is only possible with the
help of globalization. Globalization affects on many different parameters like
goods and services, technology, business, financial and economical levels. On
individual or personal levels, it has affected by changing standard of living
and quality of living. As we all know that globalization has affected us
economically and politically, it has also affected socially on a way more broader
scale. With technology becoming fast and easily portable, people of different
parts of the world are interacting together. Today they can easily know each
other’s culture and tradition. So technology has made this world a smaller
place and makes the people come closer to know each other’s lifestyle and
culture.

In general there are number of positive effects of globalization
on culture as not every good practice was born in one culture or civilization.
The world in which we live today is a result of several cultures coming
together. When people of one culture observe the flaws in their particular culture,
they start adopting the habits of the other cultures which are more correct or
suitable with the times. Societies have become larger as they have welcomed
people of other civilizations and backgrounds, creating a whole new culture of
their own. Traditions, Cooking styles, languages and customs have spread all
around the sphere due to globalization. The same can be said about movies,
musical styles and other art forms which have moved from one country to
another, leaving an impression on a culture which has adopted them. As people from
different cultural backgrounds interact more frequently, their prejudices about
each other can decrease as they learn from each other.

 

Some argue that globalization is negative as it will force
poorer countries of the world to do whatever the big and developed countries
tell them to do. Another viewpoint is that developed countries are the ones who
may lose out because they are involved in outsourcing many of the manufacturing
jobs that used to be done by their own citizens. Talking at some instance When
many cultures interact on a regular basis, though, one of the cultures can
become more dominant or integrated into another’s and threaten the other
group’s cultural traditions.  Many developing countries have not so
strict pollution laws than those in the developed countries. Increased
industrialisation and emission from factories located in the host countries and
emissions from transportation of goods are increasing pollution to the
environment. Agricultural lands are also lost in the process along with
wildlife and habitats.

 

Some refer to globalization as the intensification of global
interconnectedness, suggesting a world full of movement and mixture, contact
and linkages, and persistent cultural interactions and exchange. The
technologies of communication and transport have made economy more and more
mobile. Globalization can benefit individuals by allowing them to partake in
other, immigrant cultures, which may increase their aspirations. The rapid flow
of capital, people, goods and ideologies pulls the world together in a tight
net which may sometimes strangle the individuals it is meant to liberate. This
interconnectedness can be traced back to European colonialism, which began the
process of cultural homogenization across geographical boundaries.

 

Major number of countries has been affected by globalization
up to some extent which is beyond argument whether the countries are developed
countries like USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, and Russia or the
developing countries like India,  Argentina,
Egypt,
Mexico,
 Brazil,
 Philippines,
 Qatar,
etc. The Impact of Globalization has changed the way of life of people in major
parts of Asia by changing their traditional habits like food, clothing style,
communication methods, rituals, transportation, education standards, etc. However
there is no question that the West has also benefited from globalization. The
United Kingdom and the United States have seen huge increase in sectors like services,
especially in financial services. However, the accompanying income inequality
is of a different hue than in Asia. Younger and better educated workers located
in cosmopolitan urban centers such as New York and London has seen a phenomenal
increase in their income. On the other hand, older, less educated workers in
the rusting industrial belts of northern England and America have lost their
jobs to manufacturers overseas. Instead of jobs with good growth prospects
enjoyed by several generations in the past, the quality of jobs has
deteriorated and there is little hope among the rust belt’s working class that
this situation can be turned around. Germany has shown the way to creating
high-end manufacturing jobs in a rich-country setting. It has a great number of
highly skilled work forces that produces which are technology-intensive that generate
a large trade. There is little support in Germany for reneging on global
commitments.

 

Talking
about the India, since the beginning India is known for diversity and prosperity in its culture. It has one of the oldest
civilization and culture in the world yet Indian culture has the immense power
to unite peoples together despite of such diversity. As the change is
the law of nature, more or less like two faces of a coin, the change has
both the positive and the negative impacts on Indian culture. Today Indians are
moving to other parts of the world for higher education and learning better
technology. A girl is no more restricted to home, and a woman to a housewife. Girls
are also getting opportunities for their better education and lifestyle, same
as the boys. Old traditions and rituals are changing every year. These changes
are the roots for the better society where the women have the same right as the
men have. Talking about the  marriages,
the changes are visible. Now younger generation has liberty to choose their
life partner themselves unlikely traditionally their parents used to find a
marriage partner for them. Today If parents chooses a life partner for them then
they allow their children to spend time with their life partner for understanding
each other and then perform the marriage ceremony if both are comfortable and
agree to do so. By doing this they gave their children a better chance to have
a better future. Younger generation now have the freedom of choice in contrast
with the old culture of Indian society where parents were solely responsible
for choosing life partner for their children and less interferences were
allowed. Indian food, clothing and languages are varied with respect to
different states. The food varies in its taste, but every food has its own
nutrient value and every region is specified and rich in its medicinal
preparations with the home remedies. Even the clothing varies in different
states which is very much particular in maintaining the dignity of woman. The
varies cuisines from all over the world though have different flavours to add,
still the food ingredients that have inflicted with much popularity are the
junk food items whichare adopted from western culture. The dressing like the
suitings for the males is an inappropriate match for the Indian type of
climate.
