Sociology, which is often dubbed as a western import, appeared in the Indian scene in early 20th century. Eventually, with continuous research and writing by Indian scholars, the subject got contextualized, Indianized and it began acquiring its Indian character. In this context, it is equally imperative to uncover the trajectory of the discipline in Odisha. As one tries to trace the development of the discipline in Odisha, one does not find a single research/ paper informing the history of Sociology in Odisha. Therefore, it is methodologically more challenging to explore a domain which has hitherto remained unexplored. Dr.Mishra tries to put the nail squarely on the head. Currently, he is working on the issue of the trajectory of Sociology in Odisha: its genesis, growth, challenges and possibilities.
