Delhi’s Meatscapes: Muslim Butchers in a Transforming Mega City

Zarin Ahmad's Delhi’s Meatscapes: Muslim Butchers in a Transforming Mega City

Tracing the journey of meat from the farm to the meat shop and other workspaces of the butcher within the multi-sited margins in Delhi, the current volume intimately follows the lives of Qureshi butchers and other meat sector workers in this transforming mega-city. The author addresses the tensions that meat Throws up in a bristling Society whose stakes are now more than ever intense. She shows how meat is also a rising sector in the Indian economy and fetches precious foreign exchange. Qureshi butchers stand at the crossroads of class, caste, stigma, religion, market, urban ecological policies and a never-ceasing political debate around these issues.
Delhi's Meatscapes brings together rare archival documents, vernacular sources and ethnographic insights gleaned from several years of immersion in the city's meatscapes and is the first of its kind for urban anthropologists, economists, political scientists, policy planners and Readers who wish to take a hard look at their own (non-) meat choices.
खेत से मांस की दुकान में मांस की यात्रा और दिल्ली में बहु-मार्जिन मार्जिन के भीतर कसाई के अन्य कार्यक्षेत्रों की यात्रा का पता लगाना, वर्तमान मात्रा धीरे-धीरे मेगा-शहर में कुरेशी बचेर और अन्य मांस क्षेत्र के श्रमिकों के जीवन का पालन करती है। लेखक उन तनावों को संबोधित करता है जो मांस एक उग्र समाज में फेंकता है जिसका हिस्सा अब कभी भी गहन नहीं है। वह दिखाती है कि कैसे भारतीय अर्थव्यवस्था में मांस बढ़ता हुआ क्षेत्र है और बहुमूल्य विदेशी मुद्रा प्राप्त करता है। कुरेशी बूचर्स इन मुद्दों के आस-पास कक्षा, जाति, कलंक, धर्म, बाजार, शहरी पारिस्थितिक नीतियों और कभी-कभी राजनीतिक बहस के चौराहे पर खड़े नहीं हैं।
दिल्ली के मीट्सकेप दुर्लभ अभिलेखीय दस्तावेज़, स्थानीय भाषाओं और नृवंशविज्ञान अंतर्दृष्टि को शहर के मीटस्केप में कई वर्षों के विसर्जन से मिलकर लाते हैं और शहरी मानवविज्ञानी, अर्थशास्त्री, राजनीतिक वैज्ञानिक, नीति योजनाकार और पाठकों के लिए अपनी तरह का पहला तरीका है जो कठोर रूप से देखना चाहते हैं अपने स्वयं के (गैर-) मांस विकल्पों पर।
