The Naga Ethnic Movement for a Separate Homeland

The Naga Ethnic Movement for a Separate Homeland

Br>namrata Goswami’s research on the Naga armed ethnic movement offers a compelling narrative on how conflict has affected the daily lives of the Nagas. This volume is an account of the Naga ethnic movement going on in India since 1918, covering both historical and contemporary aspects of the conflict. Based on over a decade of ethnographic work among the Naga rebels and movement zones, personal interviews, and secondary data, the author offers insights into how the Naga population perceives their meeting point with the institutions of the Indian state, especially the army and the paramilitary. The book documents what it is like, to live in a conflict Zone and the restraints and thought processes that it cultivates especially among the youth. The book reveals gripping stories of tremendous courage and conviction from people who have thought about the political unrest, been born into it, taken part in it, or have been affected by it. The Naga ethnic movement for a separate homeland reflects the Nagas’ love for their land, tracing the poignant mix of nature, land, identity, emotions, culture as well as the inter-ethnic differences that exacerbate the conflict.

Mega Mammals in Ancient India: Rhinos, Tigers, and Elephants

Mega Mammals in Ancient India: Rhinos, Tigers, and Elephants

Since antiquity, big mammals have inspired fear as well as Fantasy among humans. Not only do megafauna pervade the domains of religion, art, literature, and folklore, it is also now widely acknowledged that they can serve as important, if not always adequate, Indices of environmental quality. In this book, Shibani Bose looks into eras bygone in order to chronicle the journeys of three mega mammals, the Rhinoceros, elephant, and tiger, across millennia in early North India. Carefully sifting through archaeological evidence and literary records in Sanskrit, Pali, Prakrit, and classical Western accounts, Bose documents the presence of these big mammals in diverse cultural contexts, from hunter-gatherer societies to the first urban civilization of India and beyond. This work aims to reconstruct human interactions with these mega species through time while trying to understand the larger Ecology of ancient India. This book is especially well-timed as the conservation of our megafaunal heritage is a major concern for biologists, ecologists, and conservationists. It underlines the need to historicize human interactions with these mega mammals with the contention that awareness regarding their past is critical for their future.

Poetry of Belonging: Muslim Imaginings of India 1850-1950

Poetry of Belonging: Muslim Imaginings of India 1850-1950

Poetry of belonging is an exploration of north-indian Muslim identity through Poetry at a time when the Indian nation state did not exist. Between 1850 and 1950, when precolonial forms of cultural traditions, such as the musha’irah, were undergoing massive transformations to remain relevant, certain Muslim ‘voices’ configured, negotiated, and articulated their imaginings of what it meant to be Muslim. Using Poetry as an archive, the book traces the History of the musha’irah, the site of poetic performance, as a way of understanding public spaces through the changing economic, social, political, and technological contexts of the time. It seeks to locate the changing ideas of watan (homeland) and hubb-e watanī (patriotism) in order to offer new perspectives on how Muslim intellectuals, poets, political leaders, and journalists conceived of and expressed their relationship to India and to the transnational Muslim community. The volume aims to Spark a renegotiation of identity and belonging, especially at a time when Muslim loyalty to India has yet again emerged as a politically polarizing question.

Capitalisms: Towards a Global History

Capitalisms: Towards a Global History

Conventional accounts often conceive the genesis of capitalism in Europe within the conjunctures of agricultural, commercial, and industrial revolutions. Challenging this widely believed cliche, this volume traces the History of capitalism across civilizations, tenth century onwards, and argues that capitalism was neither a monolithic entity nor exclusively an economic phenomenon confined to the West. Looking at regions as diverse as England, South America, Russia, North Africa, and East, South, West, and Southeast Asia, The book explores the plurality of developments across time and space. The chapters analyse aspects such as historical conjunctures, commodity production and distribution, circulation of knowledge and personnel, and the role of mercantile capital, small producers, and force—all the while stressing the necessity to think beyond present-day National boundaries. The book argues that the multiple histories of capitalism can be better understood from a trans-regional, intercontinental, and interconnected perspective.

Minority Studies (Oxford India Studies in Contemporary Society)

Minority Studies (Oxford India Studies in Contemporary Society)

In India, The ‘minority–majority’ Logic has been inherited from the independence struggle and Partition history, and ratified by provisions in favour of minorities in the Constitution. Minority studies, the first volume in the series, ‘Oxford India studies in Contemporary society’, looks at issues related to the identification, definition, and categorization of religious minorities and foreboding of the significant social Categories of caste, gender, ethnicity, and class. Drawing from fieldwork based on historically grounded and ethnographically researched locations, it examines how modern Law creates and conditions minority identity, how groups manipulate the ground-level situation to project a certain identity at a particular point of time, and what happens when a group considered as part of the ‘majority’ demands ‘minority’ status. In this paperback edition, the editor adds further to the discussion by referring to the recent resurgence of majoritarian populist Politics in India as evidenced in the lynching and targeted violence against Muslims and Dalits in the name of cow vigilantism and other such instances. The editor emphasizes how the minority question becomes even more potent in the current socio-political milieu.

Heaven's Gates and Hell's Flames: A Sociological Study of New Christian Movements in Contemporary Goa

Heaven's Gates and Hell's Flames: A Sociological Study of New Christian Movements in Contemporary Goa

Pentecostal-charismatic Christianity is one of the largest religious movements in the world today. It is a recent form of Christianity that emphasise direct personal experience of God through Baptism with the holy spirit. While the Literature on pentecostalism is constantly rising, they mostly focus on Western societies and are from a theological perspective. There is a dearth of well-researched studies that critically analyse the phenomenon of pentecostal–charismatic Christianity in India. Addressing this gap, heaven’s Gates and hell’s flames focuses on groups at the periphery of the religious space in Goa, while locating them within Christianity globally. It broadens our understanding of pentecostal–charismatic Christianity in Goa as a rapidly expanding and overtly evangelist movement within a pluralist, non-Christian society. Abreu assesses the impact of Religion on society, analysing how the symbols, beliefs, rituals, and organizational structure of the neo-pentecostal sects and the Catholic charismatic renewal influence religious identities, world views, and the everyday life activities of individual adherents. This the author does by drawing on extensive fieldwork, concepts, analyses, and interpretations provided by scholars of Religion in sociology, anthropology, history, as well as theology.

Krishna's Playground

Krishna's Playground

This is a book about a deeply beloved place—many call it the spiritual capital of India. Located at a dramatic bend in the river Yamuna, a hundred miles from the center of Delhi, Vrindavan is the spot where the God Krishna is believed to have spent his childhood and youth. For Hindus it has always stood for youth writ large—a realm of love and Beauty that enables one to retreat from the weight and harshness of the world. Now, though, the world is gobbling up Vrindavan. Delhi’s megalopolitan sprawl inches closer day by day—half the town is a vast real-estate developments the waters of the Yamuna are too polluted to drink or even bathe in. Temples now style themselves as Theme parks and the world’s tallest religious building is under construction in Krishna’s pastoral paradise. What happens when the Anthropocene age makes everything virtual? What happens when heaven gets plowed under? Like our age as a whole, Vrindavan throbs with feisty energy, but is it the religious canary in our collective coal mine?.

Does India Negotiate?

Does India Negotiate?

India Plays a key role in addressing multilateral issues like climate change, terrorism, piracy, humanitarian crises, and Nuclear Disarmament.

Surrogacy (Oxford India Short Introductions Series)

Surrogacy (Oxford India Short Introductions Series)

Although estimated as a multi-billion dollar industry, surrogacy has still not found prominence in legislation in India, neither does it feature in the nation public discourse. This short introduction explores how surrogacy is practical and understood in India and across the world. Why is a surrogate hired? Why does a woman carry a child for an infertile couple? Why is there a need to delve deeper into the motivations for and notions attached with entering a surrogacy arrangement for all involved? This book focuses on the relationship between surrogacy and issues of reproduction, kinship, women’s bodies, assisted reproductive technologies and transnational reproductive tourism. At the same time it places surrogacy in the context of mythology, popular imagination and legal and public discourses. In exploring the differences between various forms of surrogacy—commercial and altruistic, genetic and gestational, domestic and transnational—the book seeks to move beyond these opposing dualities and begin a dialogue regarding the practice.
