The role of the introduction is conceived as a kind of sutradhar (the commentator in Indian drama who keeps the threads of the narrative together). It highlights the role of conversation in the style of her anthropology. Looking at the relation between the event and the everyday, the essays ask how we might trace the picture of thinking in anthropology through ethnography and through artistic, literary and philosophical perspectives.
