‘In the event that you want the story of your life to be an incredible tale to interest others, then, plunge into it with your head, heart and hands, to embrace the truth, and thus become the story.’ -Litan Bhowmik I spent a quarter of a century to reach in the threshold of this exciting voyage which I am happy to embark upon. Initially, it was an exceptionally modest beginning and gradually it is getting to be significant. As I have been preparing myself to venture out into an amazing and exciting voyage, I thought to write this book to share my experience of the street which I left behind. If you want to save twenty five years of your life and expand your life to do more and to accomplish more in your personal, family, professional and social domains, then accommodate the wisdom in your head and heart. This book is a guide of the expedition from nowhere to somewhere; no one to someone, and meaninglessness to the significance, which almost every human being want to get on. ‘If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, you are a leader.’ -John Quincy Adams

Consequently, role theory is an essential tool for understanding social institutions, the nature of interpersonal influence, socialization, and the ways in which individuals define no less than are defined by structural change. Bennett M. Berger provides a rich informal context for understanding how this has come about in American social science.
