Abstract


Since 1991 when India jettisoned the path of socialistic pattern of controlled and guided economy, and ushered on to the path of globalized, liberalized and market economy- it has seen many changes in economy, society, culture, and politics. The quality of resilience which was the hallmark of Indian culture had shown diminishing trend. The present article argues that globalization is not a unidirectional process and there are several contrary trajectories, which have generated opposite reactions. Hence, besides homogenization of certain aspects of Indian culture, it has also laid bare the rapacious tendencies of neo- liberal entrepreneur who have exploited every bit of opportunity that developmental discourse has offered. The resultant disparities among different segments of Indian population and the unevenness in the spread of a global culture has further exacerbated diversity matrix. The question now is identity those drivers, issues and challenges that are causing lop-sided development, and make a serious effort to solve the development, Human Rights verses social justice conundrum.
