Awakening the people to help themselves is Social Awakening. Social Awakening has always been a ubiquitous part of the histories-in-making. From the beginning of the human history man has been showing his innate quest to be equaled with the people around him. The Social Renaissance and subsequently the Reformation had been phenomenon or concept of the 16th Century Europe. The epoch-making, slogan of 'Liberty, Equality and Fraternity' was coined during the French Revolution, two centuries ago, which brought about wide-sweeping social changes and its repercussions the world over. The self-respect of Indians, their sense of belonging and reluctant social awakening snowballed into the First War of Independence in 1857. It is heartening to find that social awakening, by now, has started percolating to the hitherto downtrodden stratum of our society. Almost all sections of the society recognize the rights and duties developed upon them. Although a feudal-like environment is prevalent in several parts of our country, it is, presently, on its way out or at its terminal decline. Our independence itself was the product of a revolutionary social awakening in a highly resolved and determined Indian Society. Nothing can be brought out, all of sudden. Social change can be resulted in through evolutionary and gradual purification process of a society. This Encyclopedia of Social Awakening comprises three volumes, covering all dimensions of the subject and other related matters. Before this work came to its present shape, the development process of all the strata of the society was scrutinized and thoroughly studied. Thus, evidently this work will be something unprecedented, content wise.
