ISBN: 8126917849

Condition: New


About the Book In the context of traditional Hindu society, Dalit status has often been historically associated with occupations considered ritually impure, such as any involving leatherwork, butchering, or removal of rubbish, animal carcasses, and waste. Engaging in these activities was considered to be polluting to the individual, and this pollution was considered contagious. As a result, Dalits were commonly segregated, and banned from full participation in Hindu social life. Social reality in India can be mapped along three axes—caste (social), profession (economic) and gender. Among the... View more info

Of virtually no modern historian other than D.D.

This book contains relatively unknown writings by Kosambi, including several obscure but important essays and an unpublished children’s story. Also made available here for the first time...

About the Book As English has evolved from Latin, Greek, Roman, etc. over centuries, assimilating their usages, there are many asymmetries and paradoxes, which are very interesting to read: (i) We drive in a parkway and park in a driveway.

(iii) We call it newsprint when it contains no printing, but when we put print on it, we call it newspaper. The book presents a large number of such interesting incongruities about English language.
