Abstract: Partha Chatterjee is one of the very few scholars in India who have systematically tried to theorize the specify city of Indian democratic politics. His conceptualization of political society can be seen as an approach to explicate the latter’s logics. This conceptualization has been modified and refined over the years by mediating on the concrete historical experience of a post-colonial country and through a critical engagement with the received Western normative political theory. In this paper, the author will first provide a sketch of Chatterjee’s criticism of the concept of civil society, and then present a critical review of his concept of political society
