Love S Subtle Magic

The encounter between Muslim and Hindu remains one of the defining issues of South Asian society today. It began as early as the 8th century, and the first Muslim kingdom in India, the Sultanate of Delhi, was established at the end of the 12th century. This power eventually reduced to vassalage almost every independent kingdom on the subcontinent. In Love's Subtle Magic, a remarkable and highly original book, Aditya Behl uses a little-understood genre of Sufi literature to paint an entirely new picture of the evolution of Indian culture during the earliest period of Muslim domination. These curious romantic tales transmit a profound religious message through the medium of adventurous stories of love. Although composed in the Muslim courts, they are written in a vernacular Indian language and involve Hindu yogis, Hindu princes and princesses, and Hindu gods. Until now, they have defied analysis. Behl shows that the Sufi authors of these charming tales sought to convey an Islamic vision via an Indian idiom. They thus constitute the earliest attempt at the indigenization of Islamic literature in an Indian setting. More important, however, Behl's analysis brilliantly illuminates the cosmopolitan and composite culture of the Sultanate India in which they were composed. This in turn compels us completely to rethink the standard of the opposition between Indian Hindu and foreign Muslim and recognize that the Indo-Islamic culture of this era was already significantly Indian in many important ways.

This book is in memory of Professor Partha Sarathi Gupta, who taught at the Department of History, Delhi University, from 1962 till 1999. He passed away on 10 August 1999, a few days after his retirement. A dedicated historian with a zeal for exactitude, an erudite scholar and a committed teacher, Professor Gupta was an institution within an institution and a source of inspiration for generations of students, including many of the contributors to this volume.The essays collected in the book weave together issues and concerns of different scholars from the world of Indian history. The themes they examine reflect a common desire to understand historical processes over time and from the perspective of different regions, without losing sight of the broader historical context. Through this attempt, the book, perhaps, demonstrates not only the fascinating possibilities of India s historical scholarship, but also the fact that it has indeed come of age. The fifteen essays included here, covering the early medieval and modern periods of Indian history, are organized under three thematic sections: ideology, legitimacy and the state; environment, exchange and economic transactions; and social change and resistance. Together, they present ways of negotiating India s past .Biswamoy Pati teaches at the Department of History, Sri Venkateswara College, University of Delhi. Bhairabi Prasad Sahu teaches at the Department of History, University of Delhi. T.K. Venkatasubramanian teaches at the Department of History, University of Delhi.

The Felt Community

This study of the pre-history of Indian nationalism examines a relatively unexplored field of study in Indian history. It uses a novel perspective, at least in Indian historiography: the study of emotions, feelings, and sentiments as bonds in the construction of a 'felt community' before the emergence of modern Indian nationalism. The author argues that the nation might be construed by modernity but it is likely to be rooted in older sentiments and ideas. The book addresses questions about Indian identity in the aftermath of the demolition of the Babri Masjid. Although a historical work based on primary sources, it has a political and current relevance for the national states in the Indian subcontinent. It historicizes inter-community relations beyond the rubric of mere communalism, which is what most other writers do. This study will interest historians, sociologists, political scientists, and the general reader.
