Dancing the Self

Discusses the way in which pandav lila presents an idealized version of local Rajputs, members of ”warrior” castes. It talks about the sublimated rivalry between Rajputs and Brahman priests and concludes that although the Rajputs are locally dominant, the Brahmans nevertheless maintain their cultural ”hegemony.”
