1.1       Background of the study
The phenomenon of globalization begin in a primitive form when humans first settled into different areas of the world; however, it has shown a rather steady and rapid progress in the recent times and has become an international dynamic which due to technological advancement. Has increased in speed and scale, so that countries in all five continents have been affected and engaged.
The term globalization, cover a wide range of distinct political, economic and cultural trends. It has become one of the most popular topics of debate around circles. It has been used by economists since the 1980s, social theorist have moved beyond the relatively under developed character of previous reflections on the compression and annihilation of space to offer a rigorous conception of globalization.

Human societies across the global have established progressively closer conducts over many centuries, but recently the pace has dramatically increased. Jet air planes. Cheap telephone service, email, computer, huge oceangoing vessels, instant capital flows; all these have made the world more interpedently than ever.
