About this book

By analyzing concrete examples of the creation of a heritage in the context of migration, this multi-sited ethnography considers the implications of representations of religions and diaspora for Sindhi Hindus and other similar communities.

Reviews

"Ramey's book on the Hindu Sindhis of Lucknow is a valuable work of scholarship - the only full-scale ethnology of Hindu Sindhis in India. Ramey gives us a rich sense of the people and traditions he depicts, while keeping his larger analytical questions in view." - Daniel Richard Gold, Professor of South Asian Religions, Cornell University

"The questions on religious assumptions that we all make are raised by this book, making it a 'must-read' for all, but moreso for every Sindhi Hindu." - East and West Series
