The title of this book, Listening to the Loom, derives from a story recounted by the novelist U.R. Ananthamurthy. Walking in Kathmandu with Nagaraj, once, his companion asked him to stop and listen to the sound of a weaver s loom that only he had heard. Ananthamurthy recalls saying to Nagaraj that so long as he, Nagaraj, retained this ability to hear the sound of a loom, he would never become a Non-Resident Indian intellectual. In the present volume, Nagaraj s ear for the sound and sense of things quintessentially Indian is everywhere apparent.

Author Bio: D.R. Nagaraj (1954 1998) has been widely recognized as among India s most important thinkers in the broad area of cultural politics. Until now, his English writings have only been available in book form as The Flaming Feet and Other Essays (1993; 2nd revised edition, Permanent Black, 2010), a work centred on the Dalit movement in India.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Monday 19 November, 2012.
