Globalization is one of the latest dominating issues of the everyday ways of life. The
lives of ordinary people everywhere in the world seem increasingly to be shaped by the
roles of local-global power dynamics. The global development agenda on the notion of
empowering the local people incorporates this coordination of power dynamics, which
indicates the notion of changing the traditional forms of everyday life. In this process, the
western development partners promote the economic globalization with their own
agenda, which organized and shaped the standpoints of local people. In this paper, I
explored the interrelationships between economic globalization and the changing forms
of local cultural lifestyles in Bangladesh. In this process, I chose (1) to pose the topic of
culture in the title as the form of a question; and (2) to define culture in its broadest
context. I am struck by the dominant presumption in the literature of the inevitability of
globalization and the inference of its permanence. What is required is a new and inclusive
perspective that has the capacity to embrace a wider domain beyond economics and
which is driven by the imperative of social justice and the integrity of national cultures.
