Culture and Society

You should notice that culture and society were affected too, how, this is the way-

From the societal perspective, India found itself absorbing and assimilating the positive and negative things of western and other societies.

From a cultural perspective-

India went through distinct changes, while Indian culture and practices particularly the Indic culture and practices were exported to other parts of the world.

Globalisation allowed the dissemination of such practices and changes on a mass scale.

The most important among them was the export of Indic soft power indicators like Yoga and the idea of sustainable development.

One of the key challenges of the globalisation process was to promote the syncretic order as far as the domestic issues of India was concerned.

This means promoting a cosmopolitan way of life.


The invention of internet has expanded the security threat in the form of cyber-attacks.

The cyberspace is considered to the new domain of warfare which largely consigns into irrelevance the use of firearms, the cyber-attack on AIIMS New Delhi by Chinese hackers point to this bane of globalisation.

Hence, the impact of globalisation on India has been multifaceted and multi-pronged.
