This book is m.n.srinivas-socjal yet featured on Listopia. Dec 11, Nithesh rated it it was amazing.
I am coming out of a self imposed social media ban to write this review. I chose ‘sociology’ as my optional subject for civil service exam out of interest. My understanding of society was empirical or shaky at best. This book not only provides a solid base to the subject, but also enlightens the reader about social happenings in India in a structured way.
This book has changed the way I see my home, town, state and nation forever. It has also changed the way I see myself and the goals I have set I am coming out of a self imposed social media ban to write this review.
It has also changed the way I see myself and the goals I have set for myself. Even if I fail in achieving the goal which is possibleI shall be glad that I read this book in the process of failing.

This book has helped me in understanding the complexities of Indian Society and it’s dynamics. It highlights the process of change as well as the forces driving it. The best thing about this book is it’s objective and dispassionate analysis of the society. Jul 08, Deepak rated it it was amazing. Introduces you to the term ‘Sanskritization’ and ‘Brahminization’.

The long essays on three important subjects- sanskritization, westernization and secularization have been dealt with great insight of M. Srinivas, a well-known and much revered sociologist. Equally important, especially from a reader’s view point, is his empirical approach to illustrate the ideas.
There are passages and thoughts to disagree with but the writer has not tried to impose his ideas Like any standard academic text book, it was an intermittently difficult and sometimes boring read. There are passages and m.n.srinivas-socia to disagree with but the writer has not tried to impose changs ideas or hide them from readers’ scrutiny. The essays uniquely provide for both fundamental as well as elaborated understanding of subject.
Though these essays have become decades old now, the book remains a work worth reading for multiple times.
