The only thing that remains “unchanged” is the change itself.Change is the infinitely ongoing process with reference of the time.
In thismodern era, many things which were not part of our origin or culture have nowbecome essential for us. By the adaptation of habits from other culture, theimprovement takes place and the changes are merged within. Globalization is themain factor which has affected most in this never ending process of change. In easy words, globalization can be define as the transfer ofideas, knowledge, values, emotions, technology, economy and wealth, etc. on theglobal platform in the way of changing or reshaping the cultural boundaries andimprovement for the necessity. For example, when we wake up morning we changeour t-shirt which is made in UK. We than use the Volkswagen car to go to marketthat is made in Germany. We purchase electronics, spices, books, etc which aremade in South Korea, India and China respectively.
It is only possible with thehelp of globalization. Globalization affects on many different parameters likegoods and services, technology, business, financial and economical levels. Onindividual or personal levels, it has affected by changing standard of livingand quality of living. As we all know that globalization has affected useconomically and politically, it has also affected socially on a way more broaderscale. In general there are number of positive effects of globalizationon 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 comingtogether. 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 orsuitable with the times. Societies have become larger as they have welcomedpeople of other civilizations and backgrounds, creating a whole new culture oftheir own.
Traditions, Cooking styles, languages and customs have spread allaround the sphere due to globalization. The same can be said about movies,musical styles and other art forms which have moved from one country toanother, leaving an impression on a culture which has adopted them. As people fromdifferent cultural backgrounds interact more frequently, their prejudices abouteach other can decrease as they learn from each other. Some argue that globalization is negative as it will forcepoorer countries of the world to do whatever the big and developed countriestell them to do. Another viewpoint is that developed countries are the ones whomay lose out because they are involved in outsourcing many of the manufacturingjobs that used to be done by their own citizens. Talking at some instance Whenmany cultures interact on a regular basis, though, one of the cultures canbecome more dominant or integrated into another’s and threaten the othergroup’s cultural traditions. Many developing countries have not sostrict pollution laws than those in the developed countries.
Increasedindustrialisation and emission from factories located in the host countries andemissions from transportation of goods are increasing pollution to theenvironment. Agricultural lands are also lost in the process along withwildlife and habitats. Some refer to globalization as the intensification of globalinterconnectedness, suggesting a world full of movement and mixture, contactand linkages, and persistent cultural interactions and exchange. Thetechnologies of communication and transport have made economy more and moremobile. Globalization can benefit individuals by allowing them to partake inother, immigrant cultures, which may increase their aspirations.
The rapid flowof capital, people, goods and ideologies pulls the world together in a tightnet which may sometimes strangle the individuals it is meant to liberate. Thisinterconnectedness can be traced back to European colonialism, which began theprocess of cultural homogenization across geographical boundaries.
