The focus of the study is on the nature and pace of social transformation in contemporary Shekhawati.It is based on the hypothesis that there was a nexus between caste, feudalism and peasantry before independence, the dominant social formation being feudalism. New social formations have emerged with the abolition of jagirdari system and those marginalized earlier now occupy centre stage. The study explains the incongruence between the economic and political standing and the social and cultural advancement of those now occupying positions of power. Printed Pages: 242
