2) Discuss the impact of globalisation on Indian family system?(250 words)

Key demand of the question

The question is quite straightforward in its demand. The question expects us to highlight how globalisation has affected the Indian family structure and its values.

Directive word

Discuss – Here your discussion should list out the nature and impact of changes as a result of globalisation on Indian families.

Structure of the answer

Introduction – The different aspects of globalisation – economic, political, social and cultural have important implications for human life, including the family life.

Body – discuss the impact of globalisation on structure and values of Indian families

  • Increasing mobility of younger generation in search of new employment and educational opportunities allegedly weakened the family relations.
  • Another striking impact is a gradual change took place in the family structure from joint / extended families to nuclear family pattern.
  • traditional authority structure i.e. head of the family i.e. father / grandfather/karta started losing his authority to the breadwinner of the family.
  • Even within the nuclear family one can witness the changing marital roles and distributions of power. Total subordination of women to men and strict disciplinarian / hitlarian role of father towards children are also changing.
  • Younger generation, particularly those with higher education and jobs, no longer believe in total surrender of their individual interests to family interest. The individualism is increasing even within the family structure. The increasing costs of education, health services and new job opportunities opened up for the women outside the house once again brought the role of family into question

Conclusion – give your view on the changes that have taken place as a result of globalisation on Indian families.
