9780195694192: Rhythms of Life: Enacting the World with the Goddesses of Orissa

The essays focus on two sets of rituals; those in and around the temple of Jagannath in Puri mostly through the lens of the rituals of the Devadasis and the other, the festival of Raja Parba carried out at Bali Haracandi some 20 km south of Puri, celebrating the menses of the earth, the sea, the goddess and women.

Book Description Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2008. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. The nine essays in this volume are based on the author’s fieldwork in Puri, Orissa between 1975 and 1993. During this eighteen-year period, she focused on two sets of rituals—one, in and around the temple of Jagann¡tha, studied mostly through the lens of the rituals of the Devadasis; the other, the festival of Raja Parba at Bali Haracandi, which celebrates the menses of the earth, sea, goddesses, and women. These essays contain detailed and rich re-tellings of complex rituals with their attendant stories and myths. They have been put together fifteen years after the author left the field of Indian studies. What she sees in these essays today is that the world of goddesses, gods, spirits, demons and the like, is real. However, the nature of this ‘real’ is strikingly different from the notion of the real as understood since the Scientific Revolution. Here she deals with a few ideas and categories that prevent such a realization—‘the subaltern’, ‘the third-world woman’, ‘the sacred’, and ‘history’. Size: 14 Cms x 22 Cms.
