  • Azaan as a Form of Chanting: The Islamic Sound World of Kolkata

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Srishti Maitra
      Abstract: Society and Culture in South Asia, Ahead of Print.
      This article is an attempt to explore the Islamic sound world of Kolkata, a space created by the everyday recitation of Azaan (adhan). It speaks about the properties of listening and utterance, and how ‘repeatedness’ in chanting seems to be an essential factor, which in turn also enhances the sense of ‘deep listening’ rather than just hearing. Hence, it also brings to light, the importance of the performer and the listener, and the duality which creates an interconnectedness of sound, spirituality, space and listening. The Azaan with its mystic and sonic effect, not only forms a part of the Muslim community but also reaches out beyond the boundaries of communities and religiosity and instils a sense of time as well. In this vast sonic space, a significant contributor happens to be the loudspeaker, which acts as a medium to deliver the Azaan. Hence, who then is the essential proponent of the sound world in the city, the one who recites the Azaan or the one who delivers it across spaces'

  • Dystopia, Purity and Segregation: A Study of Hindutvavad in Indian
           Nationalism from the Lens of Web Series: Leila

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Manisha Chachra
      Abstract: Society and Culture in South Asia, Ahead of Print.
      ‘Purity for all’ or ‘Jai Aryavarta (land of the Aryans)!’1 (Bühler 1886, 5) are the slogans of the nation-state dominated by Hindus in the Netflix released web series, Leila. Based on the theoretical framework of Thomas Blom Hansen, ‘The Saffron Wave’, I have argued that secularism in India was unique to its circumstances and therefore, did not entail a separation between the state and the religion. In recent times, religious nationalism is called out for xenophobia against minorities and attacks against lower-caste communities (Hansen 1999, 134). This article attempts to examine the parallels between religious nationalism in Leila and Indian politics. Through qualitative research methodology and narrative analysis, the article compares the ideas of purity, segregation and dystopia from the series with the Indian politics. The core argument of the article is that although religious nationalism is determined by these ideas, it continues to be a multi-layered concept.

  • Embodying Memory: Intersections Between Sri Lankan Performance Art and
           Prosthetic Memory

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: R. Shannon Constantine
      Abstract: Society and Culture in South Asia, Ahead of Print.
      In positing that memories acquired through visual media can impact subjectivity and alter worldview, prosthetic memory relies on an individual’s ability to build connections with the experiences of another. As an art form that foregrounds the body and relies on visuality to develop spectatorship as an affective, relational process, performance art lends itself to being analysed as a means of prosthetic memory. This article engages with three performances by the Sri Lankan performance artist Bandu Manamperi to address the interpretive intersection of the two fields, drawing on Memory Studies, Performance Studies and the Kristevan abject. Analysing interview data and photographic documentation of the performances, I explore how the affective links built through performance contribute to the creation of empathetic, relational understandings of the performing body, especially when the body presents as a violated or abject entity, and how space and cultural memory frame performance and guide viewing. I conclude that as a visceral signifier and carrier of personal memory in performance art, the body interacts with audiences’ experiential archives to impact subjectivity and influence worldview, thereby suggesting that analysing performance art reinforces and extends the tenets of Landsberg’s theories and that prosthetic memory merits further scholarship in relation to the visual arts.

  • Contradictions in Nation-Building: The Story of the Kandyans

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hasimi Lecamwasam
      Abstract: Society and Culture in South Asia, Ahead of Print.
      The evolution of the ‘Kandyans’ of Sri Lanka, now considered a (culturally distinct) part of the country’s Sinhala majority, presents an intriguing puzzle. Even though they currently very much identify with the nationalist imagination and unitary state project of the greater Sinhala collectivity, they were historically the first in the island to forward a federal demand. As such, inquiring into how the Kandyans found it possible to integrate, politico-ideologically as much as materially, to the majority polity promises to be a worthy pursuit. It is even more intriguing when one considers the retention of their cultural distinction from other Sinhalese, notwithstanding politico-ideological integration. In seeking answers to this puzzle, the present study reveals that the plantation economy, administrative restructuring of the island and the choice of Buddhism as the exemplification of the cultural identity of Sri Lanka have been instrumental in the formation as well as subsequent dilution of the Kandyan identity over time. In this equation, the colonial intervention ironically has been crucial in marking the distinction of Kandy’s identity, and—rather unwittingly—its later integration with the larger Sinhala polity as well.

  • Is Tribe a Homogeneous Category' Evidence From Tripura in North-East
           India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Saqib Khan
      First page: 7
      Abstract: Society and Culture in South Asia, Ahead of Print.
      Anthropological–sociological studies since the colonial period in India largely saw tribes as homogeneous, unchanging and undifferentiated groups which were free from conflicts or exploitation. This article critiques this notion of tribe and shows heterogeneity within tribes through an analysis of the social history of Tripura in the north-east region of India and mass movement of tribal organisations like the Ganamukti Parishad therein in the late 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. As a princely State, Tripura showed the presence of socio-economic exploitation and contradiction between social strata in the second half of nineteenth century. In the late 1940s, the GMP formulated a notion of tribe that intersected the categories of peasant and class. It was the result of this formulation that class unity between tribal and non-tribal (Bengali) peasantry was an important pivot in its mass movement during this period. In addition, the development of landed class among Tripura tribes over the last few decades is a new and important feature of the state’s agrarian structure, and was further proof of the development of socio-economic heterogeneity within tribes. This article, thus, argues for a dynamic notion of tribe that changes with time and has close linkages with other categories like peasant and class.

  • Remembering the Present: Maps, Identity and Memory in Naga Politics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ilito H. Achumi
      First page: 38
      Abstract: Society and Culture in South Asia, Ahead of Print.
      The article maps the changes in the geographies, political ideologies and splintered identities that has brought about uncertainty in the assumed homogenous category ‘Naga identity’. It investigates the influence of geographies in the ideological dilemmas and political engagements of the Nagas, and discusses how collective memory, nostalgias, desires and emotions tied to the Naga’s past implicates upon the conceptualisations of Naga identity. The article maps the collective memory of the World Wars, 1947, 1963 and how these remembering impacts upon the identity politics of the Nagas. Collective remembering and forgetting plays a pivotal role in the identification processes of their genealogies, brotherhood and clans. Today, the geo-body of Nagaland and its geographical division into central, eastern and western reflects the present political alliances of the Nagas. Naga’s political alliances and formations of Eastern Naga People’s Organisation, Tenyimia Nagas and Central Nagaland Tribes Council is a clear case of reconstructing political identity along the culture and geographies of Naga society. Discussions on the political life of the Nagas post 1947 and after 1963, the birth of a new state and post 1990s, brings out the compelling inter-linkages of Naga identity, Culture, Politics, Geography and collective memory.

  • Buddhist Reformist Movement in Sri Lanka under the British Rule:
           Manufacturing of ‘Buddhist-Modern’ Subjects

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Anushka Kahandagamage
      First page: 58
      Abstract: Society and Culture in South Asia, Ahead of Print.
      The Buddhist reformist movement of nineteenth century Sri Lanka was a composite of wealth and the knowledge of the emerging local middle-class. The new middle class owned trades and industries, which facilitated the vast colonial economy. The Buddhist reformist movement, constituted of the new middle class, was engaged in manufacturing Buddhist-modern subjects to fill the emerging need for the modern labour force. The movement established regulated institutions—schools, industrial schools, work plants—which produced docile bodies. The movement created an ideology through a plethora of publications both in local and English language to sustain the forming socio-economic structures. The reformist movement crawled into the spaces where surveillance is difficult and started changing those spaces and people according to the new market structures. New ‘scientific’ institutional models from the West were introduced to the island, fusing them with Buddhism. The new elites empowered with wealth were searching for power, in local entities, where the caste was still prominent, and in the British spaces, where the race was prominent. Against this background, the growing middle class devised a governing mechanism that could be acceptable by both Western and local groups—making of Buddhist modern subjects.

  • Clapping Along or Clapping Back: Of the Discourse of Hijra Community’s
           Resilient Happiness in Y-Film’s Hum Hain Happy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Prerna Subramanian
      First page: 81
      Abstract: Society and Culture in South Asia, Ahead of Print.
      Eva Illouz, whilst discussing her text Manufacturing Happy Citizens in an interview, points out that happiness in a neoliberal economy has become a way to measure our self-worth especially as it is individualised. Being happy, thus, means to be able to strive despite the odds and yet be optimistic: to be happy in a neoliberal setup is to be resilient. Indeed, resilience means bouncing back and putting your best foot forward in the gravest of circumstances, showing strength when things are against you: to be happy despite the odds. Keeping this aspect of resilience in mind, this essay is interested in broaching a more specific question: what happens when a structurally marginalised group is called resilient—when value of the group is solely located in its capacity to bounce back and remain within and not resist status-quo' The structurally marginalised group I will be referring to is the hijra community in India and I will discuss the idea of happiness in a video produced by Y films, the youth division of one of India’s biggest film production houses: Yash Raj films. The music video produced in 2016 is named ‘Hum Hain Happy (We are happy)’, a Hindi rendition of Pharrell William’s famous song of the same name, features six hijra community members from the city of Mumbai. The essay here offers a ‘friendly critique’ of the video’s efforts towards mainstreaming trans inclusion in representational practices which romanticise the struggle of the marginalised by valorising resilience as an inspirational response to systemic inequality. My critique, thus, does not invalidate representational practices in total but calls for looking at the dominant logics through which such representation is rendered possible. In so doing, I look at how the video’s narrative serves to quell collective resistance by translating individual resilience within status quo as happiness. On one hand, the makers of the video see the oppressed as valuable and respectable only in term of their resilient happiness and relatedly, by pedestalising this resilience as inspirational, essentialise/naturalise systemic inequalities and conditions of struggle. Anything that deters from this pedestal then is naturally seen as a negative response and not aspirational/inspirational. The essay first contextualises the video in the contemporary conditions of transgender rights in India and then proceeds to analyse its content regarding the narrative of resilience which obscures the conditions of transgender struggles in India, while elevating their positive attitude as inspirational, effectively obscuring the realities and possibilities of righteous rage and resistance.

  • The Melody of Universalism: Political Thought in Rabindra Sangeet

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sucharita Sen
      First page: 104
      Abstract: Society and Culture in South Asia, Ahead of Print.
      This article searches for Tagore’s political thought by an analysis of his songs. Existing literature has largely focussed on Tagore’s novels, letters, poems and short stories to understand his political vision. In this article, I argue that in tandem with his literary compositions, Tagore’s musical creations also have the potential to shed much light on his political thought. A keen observer of social upheavals, Tagore aimed to resolve the specific problems which were paralysing the Bengal of his times. So emerged his songs promoting Hindu–Muslim unity, India’s composite culture and spiritual regeneration of the human soul. Beneath these apparently different themes, there remained an urge for universalism, fraternity and unity which was abound in his musical expositions. This article deconstructs Tagore’s songs to analyse their meaning and their relation to the wider contemporary cultural ambience. The political thought of Tagore, as reflected in his songs, however, should not be interpreted independent of and abstracted from his literary contributions. This article, therefore, situates his songs in the ongoing discourse on Tagore’s political thought, alongside his stories, poems and novels.

  • Agonistic Terms of Peace in Kashmir: Kashmiriyat, Distributive Politics
           and Islam

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rayees Ahmad Dar
      First page: 128
      Abstract: Society and Culture in South Asia, Ahead of Print.
      Kashmiriyat as a peculiar secular formation posits Rishi tradition as central to Islam in Kashmir. However, the dialectical process of Islamic acculturation also led the Muslim identity in Kashmir to disentangle itself from any essential association with it. The article, thus, argues that Kashmiriyat alone cannot underpin any inclusive notion of democracy in Kashmir. In so far as Kashmiriyat is concerned with the religious orthodoxy implicated in subversion and violence, it is argued that religious orthodoxy, irrespective of its sociopolitical implications, being the only mode of social representation of religion cannot be eliminated in any ultimate sense. Nevertheless, it is the social antagonism that makes any religious orthodoxy to emerge, transform and ultimately face its own contingency. Thus, more than any narrative of harmony and co-existence surrounding Kashmiriyat, it is the democratic space reflective of the underlying sociopolitical antagonisms that can channelise orthodoxy in a socially productive manner. The article also highlights that the process of socio-economic development in Kashmir (referred to here as ‘distributive politics’) straddles different discourses and mainly enhances the discursive depth of the narrative in power.
