The essays collected in this volume highlight this multiplicity by studying both notions and practices of time in relation to the different contexts in which they are enacted. Scholars from different disciplines address these topics with regard to history, religion, methods of time-reckoning, festivals, life-cycle rituals, kinship and modern historiography. The essays deal with both, pan-Indian notions and traditions located in Orissa. While there are some distinct features that relate to Orissa in particular, the regional and local traditions often draw on conceptual frameworks used in other parts of the subcontinent too. Contents: Irreversibility and Repetition: Historical Constructions and Religious Discourse - Ritual Time and Life-Cycle: Collective Representations, Individual Needs; Coping with Modern Historiography: Time and the Problem of Identity.
