Introduction of Social Status:

Everyone has her/his own separate identity in society. This identity refers to one’s position or status. By social status, we mean the position of a person in a social situation and relations. Generally, we say that the social status of a particular person is high and of some other person is low or inferior. We know the status of a person according to the prestige and power of that person in society.
