(p.1) Introduction
Forgotten Friends

Indrani Chatterjee

Oxford University Press

This chapter touches on the three aspects of history tackled in the rest of the monograph. These are the issues of forgetting, of friendships between male teachers and students, and of the friendship between teachers and their lay female supporters living in households. By surveying the historiography of Indian religious groups, of women and Indian nationalist politics available thus far, the chapter identifies the various gaps in the historiography that are addressed in the monograph. The chapter thus places the region studied in the monograph with surviving Tantric Buddhist, Vaisnava and Sufi lineages after the thirteenth century. It also touches on the nature of Tibetan-Bengali languages used in the sources, and points to the physical traces of surviving histories in the landscape.

Keywords:   forgetting, Tantric Buddhists, Tipura-Tripura, Tibetan-Bengali
