Managing Multiplicity

An individual's multiple roles in a complex society that often does not overlap with that of another individual allows for the development of linkages and interactions among members of a society. Insularity develops when areas of interaction develop giving rise to boundaries limiting groups. This paper applies this dual framework to study the fluidity of groups that have emerged in Indian history and to study the uniquely 'sandwich cultures' that have developed.
