Chief Justice of India N.V. Ramana said on Friday that the current global culture is becoming a threat to local cultures, symbols and identities. Speaking at the 82nd General Assembly of Osmania University in Hyderabad, CJI said he feels the winds of globalization are pushing people towards a global culture.
Social media, television and pop culture have glorified certain ways of life, but unfortunately we blindly imitate the same. Instead of celebrating our unique heritage and culture, we told CJI of the rapid globalization and massive development of science and technology.
However, his observations are taken as a criticism of globalization itself. Shouldn’t. The general problem clearly proves something is wrong with the current model of globalization.
In his speech he spoke about biodiversity, noting that as more and more farmers turn away from conventional crops for short-term gains, this change in cropping patterns alters soil characteristics and increases biodiversity.
He called for all institutions to introduce a subject on the basic ideas about the Constitution and governance, irrespective of the stream of learning. He observed that there is a need for simplifying the ideas of the Constitution for everyone`s understanding and empowerment.
Also present were Mr. Tamilisai Soundararajan, Governor of Telangana State and Prof. D. Rabinder, Vice Chancellor of Osmania University. During the event, a total of 55 gold medals and 260 PhD’s were awarded.
