Sociology, social studies

Indian Society is a composite society. Indian culture is a composite culture. The structure of Indian society includes Hindu, Muslim, Christian and tribal social institutions. The present study of Indian society is structural-functional. Its analysis of the Indian social institutions is holistic. It clarifies the theoretical model of each social institution alongwith its factual contents. Its approach is anthropological as well as sociological. It is the result of decades of participant observation, deep philosophical insight and subtle sociological analysis, a rare combination possible only by an author having long experience of writing both in philosophy and sociology. Thus it is a valuable interdisciplinary work, bound to evoke reflection among serious students of Indian culture, religion, philosophy, anthropology and sociology.
