Geography in India

Geography in India is a legitimised social science. The menu of courses it offers, the degrees that are conferred in the discipline are more within the realm of the social rather than the physical science. Yet geography has been sidetracked and ignored by other social sciences in India. Is it that other social sciences have a blurred perception of geography? Is it the absence of geographers from social science institutes? Or is it that geographers could not establish their credentials as social scientists? This paper tries to reason why geography in India is a languishing social science.
