dc.description.abstract In recent time, all the modern, developed and developing countries are more or less within the realm of globalization. Day by day globalization is becoming more or more popular, most of the countries of the world see their better fortune in this arrangement. Actually globalization covers a wide range of issues including economic, political, cultural etc. Technology has been the main driver of globalization. Advances in information technology have brought massive changes in all spheres of life. In the process of globalization, culture of developing countries is being influenced by the culture of developed countries. Under cultural globalization, the experience of everyday life is influenced by the diffusion of commodities and ideas, reflects a standardization of cultural expressions around the world. Being propelled by the efficiency of wireless communications, electronic commerce, popular culture, and international travel, globalization has been seen as a trend toward homogeneity that will eventually make human experience everywhere essentially the same. Globalization has great impact on culture. It also helps to break down prejudices and broaden outlook and then develops international brotherhood. The process of globalization is pouching the western unformatted culture into our society and disturbing the balance of our mentality and social psychology. Some people are leaping forward to keep up with the western culture while some others are defending their own cultures against the western ones. ‘Globalization’ influences sports too. Many national and international sporting events are organized from time to time. Many games organized like cricket, football, international computer programming competition are held in occasionally. We can see these games on BTV, BTV world channels easily. And due to the success of this process in cricket Bangladesh now is well known to almost all. The culture of Bangladesh is blend of various tenets of religion, tradition and regional tendencies. The process of globalization has put the countries of the world are like families in a village. The people of developing countries like Bangladesh are being influenced by the cultures of foreign countries specially the culture of India. As a result, our Bengali culture is changing and our native culture is on threat. en_US
