Threat to indigenous craft and literary traditions- 

  • Modern development even prior to the stage of globalization made inroads into the traditional cultural forms and occupations based on them. 
  • Traditional crafts of weaving are dying out, unable to compete with power looms. 
  • There were a large number of suicides by traditional weavers. 
  • Similarly, attempts to patent the use of Haldi, rudraksh, basmati by multinational companies have highlighted the need for protecting the base of its indigenous knowledge systems.
