Introduction to Indian Sociologists




Introduction to Indian Sociologists:

‘Sociology’ and ‘Social Anthropology’, both were brought to India from Britain. British scholars who lived in India and later, Indian scholars who were trained in Britain and the USA played a major role in the development of these two disciplines in India when a Sociology came to be recognized as an independent discipline in India. A separate Department of Sociology was started in the University of Bombay (then Bombay) under the guidance of Patrick Geddes, in the year 1919. Later on, it was developed through the efforts made by pioneers of Sociology in India. They provided foundations for the study of Sociology in India. Among them are G. S. Ghurye, R. K. Mukherjee, D. P. Mukherjee, B. N. Seal, B. K. Sarkar, M. N. Srinivas, A. R. Desai, Iravati Karve, S. C. Dube, and many more.

We are going to understand the role played by G. S. Ghurye, M. N. Srinivasm, and Iravati Karve in the development of Sociology in India, with their specific contribution.
