Write The First Customer Review

The book examines how at different historical junctures attempts were made to negotiate the equalitarian claims of a universalist faith with the expression of social differentiation lying at the heart of caste inequality. It provides insights into how marginalized artisans, poets and musicians understood themselves and how they responded to a faith that had become the cornerstone of social prestige and status.
