This chapter moves out into the larger world of the emerging cultural public sphere without relinquishing its connection to princely states. Princely state rulers were part of a patronage network for peripatetic folk theater as well as acting as donors to music appreciation societies and sponsors of grand events such as the All India Music Conferences. Through these activities, one sees the coming into being of a new cultural public sphere produced by literary activity (the response by native writers to colonial writings on the degeneracy of Indian music) as well as by the founding of fledgling education and music appreciation societies and music theater.
