By looking at the experiences of everyday life In societies like India, It attempts to understand how different socialities are formed and sustained. It offers new insights on themes such as the ontology of the social, the way the social is experienced, the nature of social that operates in the world as invisible authority, along with the creation of notions such as social self and social time.
