Interrogating Development: Insights from the Margins
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0198066414 / 9780198066415; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume provides a new perspective on the role of culture in shaping the attitudes towards economic development of marginalized people both in the global North and the global South. The strength of the collection lies in the examples from within India and without, which illuminate old Dalit–Savarna and Hindu–Muslim dynamics specific to India. These also facilitate a new understanding of the processes of marginalization in northern capitalist contexts. The essays draw attention to the various modernizing forces that have rendered invisible the dynamics of cyclicity, bio-cultural regeneration, and social and ecological reproduction. The volume contrasts Western modernity and modernizing processes in India, thereby providing startlingly new insights on modernity and non-modernity in contemporary India. This enables a deeper understanding of the nature of market forces and their effect on older, non-modern social, cultural, and epistemological dynamics and practices. Through specific examples and case studies from India, Europe, and the Americas, this volume explores key issues in the fraught relationship between development and marginalization.

Rhythms of Life: Enacting the World with the Goddesses of Orissa
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195694198 / 9780195694192; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The nine essays in this volume are based on the author’s fieldwork in Puri, Orissa between 1975 and 1993. During this eighteen-year period, she focused on two sets of rituals—one, in and around the temple of Jagann¡tha, studied mostly through the lens of the rituals of the Devadasis; the other, the festival of Raja Parba at Bali Haracandi, which celebrates the menses of the earth, sea, goddesses, and women. These essays contain detailed and rich re-tellings of complex rituals with their attendant stories and myths. They have been put together fifteen years after the author left the field of Indian studies. What she sees in these essays today is that the world of goddesses, gods, spirits, demons and the like, is real. However, the nature of this ‘real’ is strikingly different from the notion of the real as understood since the Scientific Revolution. Here she deals with a few ideas and categories that prevent such a realization—‘the subaltern’, ‘the third-world woman’, ‘the sacred’, and ‘history’. 028039
