  • Changing Food Habits of Urban Middle-Class Youth in India: ‘Ordering
           In’

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rituparna Patgiri
      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      The liberalisation of the Indian economy facilitated significant changes in the eating habits of urban middle-class Indians since the 1990s. While there have been studies on food and Indian society before liberalisation, on ‘street food’ and the impact of restaurants and practices of eating out after liberalisation in India, the rising phenomenon of ‘ordering in’ has remained relatively under-researched. This article examines the impact of online food delivery service providers on the food habits of urban middle-class youth in India. It finds that the combined effects of demonetisation and the related push towards digitalisation strengthened online food delivery services in the market. Subsequently, ordering in has become a regular part of the eating culture of urban middle-class youth, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study offers new insights into remarkable recent changes in the psycho-social and socio-economic structures of Indian society, affecting both consumers and service providers.

  • Azad Kashmir Reflections in Vikram A. Chandra’s The Srinagar
           Conspiracy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Goutam Karmakar
      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      The contested identity of Kashmir and Kashmiris and their intrinsic pain of hoping for freedom [Azadi] have found expression through The Srinagar Conspiracy, a novel by Vikram A. Chandra (2000). The article highlights how, through the fractured friendship between a Muslim and a Kashmiri Pandit boy, Chandra traces the upsurge of militant insurgency in Kashmir in the late 1980s and 1990s. The article also examines how the changing dynamics of identity were manipulated by the politics of ethnic and religious nationalism in Kashmir, leading to the 1989 insurgency and its drastic implications. The article also shows how the ethos of Kashmiriyat has been compromised, while the call for azad [free] Kashmir has remained an unrealised dream.

  • Japanese Inspiration in the art of Nandalal Bose

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Amita Kini-Singh
      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      This article explores the impact of Japanese art and its techniques on the work of Nandalal Bose (1882–1966), one of India’s pre-eminent artists, by locating specific influences from leading Japanese artists of his era, with whom he had close associations during his lifetime. It builds a case for the argument that despite being a staunch advocate for indigenous aesthetics, the depth and versatility of Nandalal’s artistic oeuvre was rooted in his ability to absorb select practices from other artistic cultures, specifically the Japanese, enabling us to connect the origins of India’s modernistic art practices principally to him. The article draws attention to the stylistic and ideological learning that he acquired during interactions with master artists from Japan, including Yokoyama Taikan, Hishida Shunsō and Arai Kanpō and demonstrates the significance of these Japanese influences to both Nandalal’s artistic life and, as a direct result, to the stylistic direction taken by Indian art in the mid-twentieth century.

  • Development Science: Linking Postcoloniality and Indian Institutes of
           Technology

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jyotirmaya Tripathy
      First page: 159
      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      Post-independence Indian science as a medium of national development offers an opportunity to engage with the West beyond the straightjacket of domination and subordination. This ambivalence is reflected in the conception and materialisation of Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), established under the guidance of Western powers to strengthen India’s technological progress. Being delivered from the West, IITs created conditions of sameness and difference, leading to a situation where the West and India transformed each other, with major implications for ideas of development and nationhood. This article focuses on IITs, particularly IIT Kanpur, as a site of collaboration and contestation, where engineering and politics often crossed, negotiated and resisted each other. This also led to situations where science’s materialisation through machines, such as computers, blurred the experiential difference between the West and India. Such boundary crossings created new scientific subjectivities that traversed beyond the nation and de-territorialised the practice of science.

  • Muslim Leadership within Gujarat’s Congress in the 1980S

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Seiko Okayama
      First page: 177
      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      Much literature covers how the rise of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India impacted on the political marginalisation of Muslims, while it has not been examined in sufficient depth how the internal dynamics of Congress contributed to this decline in Muslim nominations for elections. This article examines the Congress party’s organisational circumstances that affected Muslims’ electoral representation in 1980s Gujarat. It demonstrates that, along with the influence of competing Hindutva forces, the ongoing ‘deinstitutionalisation’ of the Congress party also damaged the political representation of Muslims. Interview accounts and archival documents indicate how factional fighting within Congress subverted the faction-like consolidation of the Muslim leaders’ negotiation power. The article argues that despite vertical and dyadic ties with Hindu leaders inside the party, Muslim Congressmen could not attain unified leadership to generate sufficient pressure on the party to nominate Muslims for elections.

  • Sovereignty and Maritime Practices in the Western Indian Ocean,

      Authors: Mir Kamruzzaman Chowdhary

      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines how far existing work on the Indian Ocean has focused on aspects like sovereignty and maritime law in the western Indian Ocean and argues for more research in this field. The conduct of shipping in the western Indian Ocean took a drastic shift during the period from 1700 to 1900 when an organised admiralty law was drafted in India, indicating that the role played by the British in this process cannot be disregarded. Highlighting the struggle between various European powers for supremacy over maritime trade and commerce in the Indian Ocean by analysing the available sources, this article identifies numerous gaps in studies of the Indian Ocean, which need further scholarly exploration.

      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      With its several innovative features, the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) is considered to be a game changer for rural India. Assessing the first 15 years of its implementation, this article mainly presents collated key data on its performance in various Indian states and then seeks to explain why some indicators may look less successful in different states. Many factors contribute to variations in MGNREGS performance, but what effects were observed in economically backward states to protect impoverished rural Indians from sinking into distress scenarios' Based on the official figures, the article explores answers for the period of 2006–21.

  • Sri Lankan Northern Tamils in Colombo: Broken Memories of Home

      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      The Sri Lankan conflict that officially ended in 2009 resulted not only in large numbers of Tamils leaving the country to join the vast global Tamil diaspora but also created many internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Sri Lanka’s Northern Tamil communities who settled in Colombo. This article examines the idea of home among such IDPs, showing how broken memories of an earlier home and different approaches towards return shape feelings of being an ‘insider’ or ‘outsider’ among Tamil IDPs in Colombo. Drawing on the life experiences of such IDPs, the article shows that they now often view Colombo as a more suitable home yet are still ‘becoming insiders’ rather than ‘being insiders’.

      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      Based on interviews with journalists, political party leaders and civil society activists, this article examines and illustrates the strategic capacities of leadership in Nepalese efforts to bolster the movement for democracy. With the help of Bourdieu’s concepts of social, cultural and symbolic capitals, the article provides insights into the crucial role of key individuals as leaders and examines their skilful use of activist synergies to spearhead significant political change in Nepal. The study demonstrates how a seemingly resource-poor movement can nevertheless mobilise the popular masses against an autocratic ruler.

  • Labour Market for Young Urban Female Graduates in India

      Authors: Deeksha Tayal, Sourabh Paul

      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      This study examines long-term trends in the labour market outcomes of young urban female graduates in India. Using nationally representative employment data, we find that a rise in the adjusted labour force participation rate of young educated women (15–29 years) between 1999 and 2000 and 2011–12 was not accompanied by a corresponding improvement in their access to suitable employment opportunities. We provide evidence of the inability of the labour market to effectively absorb the increasing shares of higher qualified young urban females into formal regular jobs. Further, a gendered comparison of trends depicts the presence of continuing gender discrimination. In such a scenario, the discouraging effects may either keep many educated young women in a state of unemployment or result in their withdrawal from the labour force.

  • Indianness in Photography

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Maja Tabea Jerrentrup
      First page: 285
      Abstract: South Asia Research, Ahead of Print.
      This article explores the question whether there is a specifically Indian style of photography. A survey of photography students from various institutions revealed that though there is little clarity about the actual look of an Indian style of photography, students clearly define their own photographs as Indian. Intriguingly, the focus is less on certain visual characteristics, but more on the feelings they derive from the photographs, a scenario which is reminiscent of the rasa theory. Even though this was hardly mentioned by the students, this psycho-social element seems to have left a cultural imprint but also reflects an act of claiming ownership and agency. In addition, the students identified alienating aspects in photography, such as seeing one’s own culture like an outsider, but at the same time consider it to be integrating, since photography paves the way for a deeper engagement with one’s own culture, and as such strengthens Indianness.
