The Lost Generation

The Lost Generation: Chronicling India’s Dying Professions
by Nidhi Dugar Kundalia.

Read my review here on Open Road Review. 

An excerpt:

"Once we move past the novelty of these professions, of the nooks they occupy in battles and epics, of their romance and nostalgia, we have to ask, so what! Are these professions indeed anachronistic, stuck in a timewarp surrounded by Rudaalis waiting to weep? Or, as patriarchy, caste and feudalism change their natures, do they continue to make space for these professions?"
