A Forgotten ‘Revolution’

A Forgotten ‘Revolution’

Revisiting Rural Life and Agrarian Change in Haryana

(p.155) 7 A Forgotten ‘Revolution’
The Changing Village in India

Surinder S. Jodhka

Oxford University Press

This chapter is based author’s revisit to two villages of the Panipat district of Haryana during 2008–9, after a gap of 20 years (first studied in 1988–9). The chapter provides a historical overview of the process of development and change in the two villages. Introduced during the late 1960s, Green Revolution technology brought about significant economic changes and also transformed social relations of production in the region. Though processes of change have continued, empirical study of the rural society has been out of fashion since the early 1990s. Through the revisit, author explored the nature of change during the past 20 years. The chapter particularly focuses on the changing nature of caste and class relations, rural power structure, and the emerging relationships of the two villages with the neighbouring urban settlements in terms of employment and aspirations.

Keywords:   green revolution, marginalities, mobility, occupational diversification, political entrepreneur, rural caste relations, agrarian change, attached labour
