Today, Hindi and Urdu are considered two separate languages, each with its own script, history, literary canon and cultural orientation. Yet, pre-colonial India was a deeply multilingual society with multiple traditions of knowledge and literary production. Historically the divisions between Hindi and Urdu were not as sharp as we imagine them today. The essays in this volume reassess the definition and identity of language in the light of this. Its aim is to move away from the received historical narratives of Hindi and Urdu, and look afresh at the textual material available in order to attemp... View more info

In the Kings and Untouchables, the author presents the field work done on the vankar, a caste of untouchable weavers in Gujarat.

Louis Dumont's Homo Hierarchicus has had a significant impact on anthropological theory. Rosa Perez confronts this western perception of untouchablity of with the notion of reversibility, and a fresh translation of social norms. Printed Pages: 252. View more info

Transformation of Indian Agrarian Social Structure has been more of a state initiated process than being spontaneous. Agrarian history of Indian is replete with efforts to transform the social relationships in agriculture, which have either always fallen short of their goals or have had effects other than those desired.

This work takes a third, but distinct perspective, namely, "change and continuity" as a process. The context is land reforms, introduction of cash crops and se... View more info

Indian Women in the House of Fiction explores the quiet negotiation of women and the kinds of homes they wish to inhabit. The house is not merely a backdrop in Indian women’s fiction but almost a character that bears witness to the changes taking place in the protagonists’ lives. The architectural and social spaces of havelis, bungalows and apartments impose their own unique patterns of women’s relationships inside and outside the domestic space. In these fictional homes, women find ways to transform restrictive segregated spaces – like the zenana of a haveli – into a potentially emp... View more info

Two trends seem to be dominant in Prem Chand criticism. On the one hand are the writers of dissertations, out to prove their theses; on the other are the 'progressive' critics in the grip of the ruling orthodoxy of the last sixty years. Both these trends have stood in the way of making an objective assessment of the complexity of Prem Chand's thought as well as his art. Professor Sharma, with his keen interest in the History of ideas, unravels the different strands in Prem Chand's thought. He demonstrates that while Prem Chand was deeply concerned with social and political problems, equally de... View more info

His vast achievement as historian of Asiatic art, interpreter of Indian aesthetic thought and commentator of its major texts was of pioneering importance and, fundamental not so much in those sectors as such where there was certainly no dearth in his time of equally distinguished scholars and specialists, but insofar as it pushed back the boundaries of the aesthetic ecumene, laying bridges and opening up roads where deeply entrenched barriers and fences had hithert...
