Drawing on three years of fieldwork in hospitals and
nursing homes in the city of Kolkata, the book is an
ethnographic study that analyses how hierarchies at
workplace intersect with social identities to produce a
differentiated workforce. The book interrogates the
politics of distinction and distancing that produces a
feminine workforce divided by class, caste and
Sexualities to examine the various contestations among
ranks of workers who deploy modernity, morality and
gendered norms as strategies to secure marginal gains at
the expense of others.

This book sets the scene of traceability and good
estimate practice that is followed in the other volumes
in this series of five working guides. It clarifies the
difference between an estimating process, procedure,
approach, method and technique. It expands on these
definitions of approach (top-down, bottom-up and
-ethereal-) and method (analogy, parametric and -trusted
source-) and discusses how these form the basis of all
other means of establishing an estimate.The book also
underlines the importance of -data normalisation- in any
estimating procedure, and demonstrates that the
Estimating by analogy method, in essence, is a simple
extension of data normalisation. This book provides a
taster of the more numerical techniques covered in the
remainder of the series by considering how an estimator
can potentially exploit Benford-s Law (traditionally used
in Fraud Detection) to identify systematic bias from
third party contributors.

Folk performances reflect the life-worlds of a vast
section of subaltern communities in India. In this book,
the author studies bhuiyan puja (landworship), bidesia
(theatre of migrant labourers), reshma-chuharmal (Dalit
Ballads), dugola (singing duels) from Bihar, and the
songs and performances of gaddar, who was associated with
Jana Natya mandali, Telangana. He examines various ways
in which meanings and behaviour are engendered in
communities through rituals, theatre, and enactments.
Focusing on various motifs of landscape, materiality, and
performance, the author looks at the relationship between
culture and labour in its immediate contexts. Based on an
extensive ethnography and the authors own life experience
as a member of such a community, the book offers a new
conceptual framework to understand the politics and
aesthetics of folk performance in the light of
contemporary the theories of theatre and Performance

This book brings together Rabindranath Tagore-s writings
on forms of difference based on gender, caste, class,
nation, community, religion, language, art, literature,
philosophy, social custom and political belief. Via new
translations, along with Tagore-s own writings, lectures
and conversations in English, this illustrated anthology
presents his complex, dynamic approach to commonly
perceived dualities -- such as life/death,
nature/culture, male/female, tradition/modernity,
East/West, local/universal, urban/rural etc. -- to
highlight his humanistic vision and its significance for
