In evaluation of the impact of globalization on different cultures, obviously it has a positive impact. Objectively, globalization exercises a profound influence on the life of people for better development. The declaration of war in the bad aspects of many cultures by globalization remains visible. Globalization and culture are taken as dialectical phenomena. In the process of interaction, cultural hybridity and indigenization are obtainable rather than cultural homogenization. The paper examines the positive impact of globalization and proposes the regulatory mechanism to checkmating the negative impact and to argue that cultural homogenization is unrealistic.
