Recent Developments In Indian Society Such As The March Of Secularism, Growth In Science And Technology And Modernization Of Economic And Political Spheres Have Not Marginalized The Religion. There Are Several Socio-Cultural Problems Which Need To Be Tackled Effectively By Our Religions And Spirituality Only. Hence, The Religions In India Such As Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Islam, Christianity, Sikhism And Zoroastrianism Have Provided Not Only An Integral Frame Work For Large Groups Of People But Also Offered Solutions To The Vexation Of Mind And Spirit. Besides The Religious Impulse Has Stimulated Not Only Routine Activities But Also Special Pursuits. The Religious Impulse Has Been Predominant. Even Today There Are Many Prominent Personalities In The Country Who Have Kept Alive The Religious Inheritance. These Essays Which Deal With The Role Of Charisma In Religious Life, Bhakti Reform, Conceptualization Of Hinduism And Pluralism, Social Stratification Pioneers In Indian Society, Etc., Are Sure To Provide New Insights Into The Relationship Between Religions And Society. These Essays Are Concise, Clearly Written And Stimulate Discussion. In Sum, The Book Presents An Optimistic Outlook Which Regards Religion (In Spite Of Its Contemporary Aberration ) As A Vital Force For The Survival Of The Indian Society., About The Author:- Prof. C.N.
