The book presents an interpretive account of Satnami endeavors, encounters, and experiences by bringing together the perspectives of history and anthropology, archival and field work. It addresses a clutch of theoretical issues and a range of key and inextricably bound relationships in an accessible manner. Issues of caste and untouchability, sect and kinship, myths and pasts are rendered here as part of a wider dynamic between religion and power, gender and community, writing and the constitution of traditions, ritual and the making of modernities, and orality and the construction of histories.
