Description
About the Book

DAULAT DARBAR is an autobiographical account of a common Indian citizen who worked in the Railways in various positions-from that of a simple marker of packages to a station master. From his vantage point can be seen the social change that India has undergone in the past eight decades, particularly in Mewar-a former princely state in southern Rajasthan. Simply told, this story is an anthropological exercise exemplifying the use of the life-history technique combined with participant observation for more than 50 years!! This was possible because the author of Daulat Darbar happens to be the son of the principal character of the story.

The reader, as he goes along, will smoothly move from the past to the present. He will get a glimpse of old Mewar-its villages and the capital city, of the caste structure, of life in roadside railway stations. He will see the process of upward ascendancy of a lower middle class Brahman family, and the crises of values and conflict of generations that characterize a modern parvenu family. A good sociological case study, an anthropological life history, the book reads like a novel.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
