civilization, it is equally interested in analyzing the validity or otherwise
of past heritage in relation to present concerns. Finally, it sees the
processes of change and transformation of India in the wider context of a
changing world. These being the concerns, the journal
invites articles bearing on one or the other aspect of the
transformation processes, both at the micro and at the macro level.
