A.K. Singh (Author)
Synopsis India presents a significant pattern of cultural and ethnic diversity. Indian people differ in their socio-cultural levels as well as in their behavioural perspectives. Indian Society has been exposed to various socio-economic changes and legal initiatives over the last five and half decades. The Constitutional provisions of democratic governance and the policy of positive discrimination have affected the social fabric and economic structure of Indian society.
