Globalization is not something new; there were several earlier waves of globalization - religionization, colonization, imperialization and contemporary globalization. Hyperglobalizers argue for the present wave of globalization, localizers argue for 'reverse globalization' and 'hetrogenization' and a third group advocates 'glocalization'. What is called globalization is nothing but 'economic globalization' for a select few and 'virtual globalization' for the tech-savvy technocrats. Yet, there is no ideological globalization' for which we need to think of strategies for promoting inclusive glocalization. To bring this into fruition, the focus should be on education and judicious use of technology. Furthermore, globalization is threatening the very existence of local culture and languages and hence, the twin objectives, modernization without Westernization, must be built into our educational system. In the field of education, this necessitates the production of local materials without ignoring the global trends which should be our response to the perils of the present-day globalization and for initiating 'inclusive globalization'.
