Social Change Through NGOs

A. Kumar (Editor)
Synopsis The specific meaning of social change depends first of all on the social entity considered. Changes in a small group may be important on the level of that group itself but negligible on the level of the larger society. Similarly, the observation of social change depends on the time span taken; most short-term changes are negligible if a social development is studied in the long run. Even if one abstracts from small-scale and short-term changes, social change is a general characteristic of human societies: customs and norms change, inventions are made and applied, environmental changes lead to new adaptations, conflicts result in redistributions of power. This universal human potential for social change has a biological basis. It is rooted in the flexibility and adaptability of the human species – the near absence of biologically fixed action patterns on the one hand and the enormous capacity for learning, symbolizing, and creating on the other hand. The human biological constitution makes changes possible that are not biological constitution makes changes possible that are not biologically (genetically) determined. Social change, in other words, is only possible by virtue of biological characteristics of the human species, but the nature of the actual changes cannot be reduced to these species traits. However, with the efforts of NGOs in India a drastic Social Change has taken place and the present work is entirely devoted to indepth study of Social Change through NGOs.
