The Remembered Village

M.N. Srinivas

Oxford University Press

Looking back upon the author's field experience, he notes that three individuals, the headman of Rampura, Kulle Gowda and Nadu Gowda, contributed significantly to his understanding of village life and culture. The three men, each in his own way, taught the author a great deal about village life, and he saw the village principally through them and their activities. Two of the three, the headman and Nadu Gowda, were rich and powerful while the third, Kulle Gowda, was neither. But all three left an indelible impression upon him, and even after twenty-six years since he first set foot in Rampura, he could not think of the village without simultaneously thinking of those three men, each so different from the other.

Keywords:   field experience, village life and culture, Kulle Gowda, Nadu Gowda, Rampura headman, village life
