    Abstract: Significant transformations of the Indian economy, polity and society over the last two decades raise one important question: Have the social sciences in India been able to understand and adequately interpret these changes? Some of the superficial signs are not entirely encouraging. If the Nehruvian Second Plan Strategy was built around the work of academics like Prof.Mahalanobis, the intellectual inspiration for the liberalization process has largely come from within government. Indeed, there are even some signs that the gap between the social sciences and the demands society is making of them is being filled by those outside Indian academia.
