Abstract: Present essay tries to discuss the process of formation and reformation of spatial identities in the aftermath of globalization. The basic premise of the paper is that identities are more often remain attached to space and these are direct outcome of the culture if the culture is taken as sum total of one’s interaction with the given surroundings. Then it is but natural to presume that both space and time one belongs to have a limit in opted approach. The local patterns and designs grow and have their uniqueness and identity considerably recognizable in creativeness, reflections, in formation of ideologies and so on. Further the article seeks to analyze the role of knowledge as a deciding force in the formation of such identities as second premise of the paper is that it is knowledge of different kinds ‘local’ and ‘global’; ‘tacit’ and ‘explicit’ that is basis of culture. People with dominating tendency if organized themselves as power-unit use the raw products of information, ideas, and ideologies by innocent but sincere people as roots in their intentional aims to dominate and produce cultural hegemony through creation of so-called ‘knowledge society’ and ‘knowledge economy’. It is in this context that the paper argues that dispersed/fragmented concentration of knowledge has led to formation of different kinds of spatial identities that are transnational and at the same time sub-national.
