The term ‘Globalisation’ has been widely used in the last fifteen years. The term globalisation primarily describes the political and economic relations between states. However, it can also refer to the personal connections between people. In simple terms, Globalisation means that people around the globe trade with each other, exchange information and benefit from each other whether in culture, politics, technology, the environment, the economy, science or society. Globalisation is the acceleration of the integration of nations into the global system. It helps in the expansion of cultural ties between the people. But talking about its pitfalls, amidst this a particular culture can be prone to being forgotten. Many times and especially nowadays, youngsters tend to forget their culture. Due to the accelerated movement from rural to urban areas, family disruption and social and domestic violence are increasing. Talking about India, 2004 New Delhi police reports indicate that deaths in the city of about six women everyday are dowry related suicides. Globalisation has changed concepts of family national identity, job and tradition. It is also believed that due to the growing competition, the concept of individualistic societies is emerging.

Economists believe that the crash of the stock market in Asia in 1994 was due to the spread of adverse human consequences because of interdependence of economies and people. Globalisation has a deep impact on every single individual. It affects people’s identities and cultural values. These new values can lead to dissonance, conflict and difficulties with internal growth and development. Also, companies have become more prone to using child labor in third-world countries. Coming on technology, which we think has made our lives better but we cant oversee the drawbacks. Population composition is changing at every level of society. Some nations are witnessing an increase in births and vice versa. So no matter Globalisation brings new potentials for development and wealth creation but, there are divergent views and perceptions among people concerning its economic and social impact. While some believe that the present model of globalisation has led to a surge in the problems of unemployment, inequality and poverty, while others argue that globalisation helps to reduce them.
