Through the somewhat unconventional prism of a person-centred ethnography, is work has taken up the challenge of considering Sankrityayan during the important period of historical transformation: one which saw the development of the Indian independence movement and forms of Indian nationalism. Sankrityayan, despite his involvement in the nationalist movement, did not permanently remain associated with any particular party, organization, or group. A complicated subject to understand, Sankrityayan, the author concludes, saw his life’s work as coming down to honing the concept of Indianness into an ever finer shape.
