Indian social Systems is a plurality of individuals drawn from major religions of the world- Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism and a bewildering variety of cults and sects with different orientation in belief and rituals. The Racial elements in the Indian population, namely Negrito, Proto-Australoid, Mongoloid, Mediterranean, Western Brachyeppphals and Nordic are also integral part of our social system. Side by side, an individual can realize him or herself by balancing and fulfilling the four objectives inscribed in purusarthas viz. Dharma (Righteousness and Moral Values), Artha (Prosperity and Economic Values), Kama (Pleasure, Love, Psychological Values) and Moksha (liberation and Spiritual Values). They are not independent or Mutually exclusive of each other. Self-Denial has been considered as one of the central values in the Indian Society.
In sharp contrast to the Indian Social Systems, the social system is defined as a plurality of Individuals employing means to optimize gratifications and minimize pains. This definition of the social system influences Indian social system to redefine itself, particularly values like hierarchy, sacred and transcendence. As an impact of the western model of Indian Social System, India has undeniably registered impressive progress in its share of world economy. But when we consider the area and population of our country, some of the glitters of achievements wear off. The development is concentrated in selected areas of our country. Uneven and serious regional imbalances create tensions. The educational system hierarchically being incapable of grooming our children with a standard quality education is a major set-back endangering the social fabric of our social system. The unbridled crime against women, increased gap between poor and rich, problems faced by minority communities, informal labor force and increasing sense of cultural deprivation are some of the concerns that the stream of Indian Social System intends to address.
