Ethnography is an in-depth study. In social science, it has played a great or crucial role in understanding human actions. Ethnography is simply the description of one culture; it is not a comparative study. Ethnology is the comparative study of culture and the investigation of theoretical problems using information about different groups. Ethnographic measurement is likely to provide a view of human reality. Anthropology is a field that enlightens human civilization. Every cultural stimulus is supposed to be described by means of an anthropological study. Sociology and cultural anthropology have long been the foundations of authentic ethnographic research. Ethnographic study is not only a part of anthropology, it is also the basic and core information of human natural life. Ethnography, as defined by Lowie, “is the science that deals with the cultures of human groups"(1937; 3) [1]. A very simple meaning is that the total cultural description of a particular community is described as ethnography. It is a written record of human actions and responses. To interpret the very inside of the literary issue and ethnographic texts, it is already viewed that popular literature worldwide, especially a significant number of novels bears literary ethnographic representations. Many novels are literary ethnographies of the life and culture of the novelist ethnographies in some cases these might have been the auto-ethnographies of the novelist's life and culture as they studied and expressed.
