This book presents the kinship system of the Meo, a Muslim community of Rajput caste of north India, where the brother sister relationship transcends the distinctions between consanguines and affines to pervade relations both before and after marriage. In terms of family and kinship, and associated ceremonies, myths and legends, the Meo have long been regarded as unusual among Indian Muslims. They forbid what is regarded as a diacritical Muslim kinship practice patrilineal parallel-cousin marriage as well as cross-cousin marriage, and follow north Indian, Hindu kinship rules. In this book, the author engages with classical kinship themes: the Meo kinship terminology the relation of kinship and territory marriage alliance and marriage rituals and prestations. Printed Pages: 216.
