 ABOUT THE TITLE
In recent times, cultural studies have engaged the attention of both experts and general masses. Its meaning and manifestations in live experiences of people have given birth to debates and discussions. At undergraduate levels, many universities in India have introduced courses revolving around cultural studies.

By introducing the students to this work, we will be able to make our students understand our multifaceted cultural heritage. The role of languages, religions and caste system in shaping Indian society across time and space is mapped. In the context of present-day India, the book also highlights various bottlenecks that thwart or block the process of national integration.
