Night of the Gods: Durga Puja and the Legitimation of Power in Rural Bengal
Orient BlackSwan/RCS Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8192304612 / 9788192304618; Hardcover; New; New; 
Durga Puja is the most visible annual event in West Bengal. This ethnographic account shows that Durga Puja in the countryside was a very different event from the modern version of the puja, one that symbolized legitimacy and counterposed generous redistribution against the ruthless collection of revenues. The offerings and sacrifices that were integral to the traditional pujas provided communion for the landholding families as well as their dependents in the community. Printed Pages: 240. 101797

Thirteen Festivals: A Ritual Year in Bengal
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8192304639 / 9788192304632; Hardcover; New; New; 
An expression common among Bengali Hindus says baro mase, tero parban, ‘in twelve months there are thirteen festivals.’ While each of these occasions is built around the worship of a particular god or goddess, they are also performances where setting, attire, ornamentation, recitation, music, and sometimes theater are brought together. Thirteen dramatically understates the number of such occasions around the year. Previous books in this series have described and analyzed the axial rituals in the annual cycle in the village of Kelomal, Purba Medinipur, West Bengal. These are the famous Sanskritic Durga Puja, the high point of the autumn in Bengal, and the less well known vernacular spring ritual of Gajan, devoted to Siva. The present work deals with the great variety of rituals that take place during the remainder of the year, including worship of Sitala, goddess of disease and mother of the village; Manasa, goddess of snakes; Laksmi, embodiment of prosperity dwelling in the rice crop; Krsna, who offers the possibility of liberation; Satya Narayana, who has a Muslim personality as Satya Pir; and the goddesses worshiped by women within the house: Sasthi, goddess of children; the auspicious Mangal Candi; and Bipattarini, who saves people from danger.
