    Bonds lost: Subordination, conflict and mobilisation in rural south India c. 1900-19701997Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation examines the transformation of rural social relations in the highlandsof south India during a period of rapid agricultural change. Long before the expansionof commercial crops in agriculture, the landowning community of farmers and thelandless agricultural labourers had been closely related to each other. During theeconomic change, the need of these labourers increased on the farms. As the labourerswere also leather workers, their skills were Indispensable to reassure the farmers ofthe increasingly necessary irrigation.

    By a combination of a variety of government, mission and oral sources, thethesis shows that, between 1880s and 1930s, competition for labour scaled up in theregion and agricultural labourers were increasingly tied by advance payments to workfor a farmer. This is known as the pannai or farm system and included both dutiesand rights for the labourers. On account of this, economic expansion gained supportand social control was upheld. However, even after preconditions had been madeavailable to achieve a more profitable farming by replacing permanent by casuallabourers a substantial, permanent labour force was still employed on the farms. In thelate 1930s and 1940s, kinship-wise mobilisation among the Madhari labourers toconvert to Christianity was met by strong and sometimes violent resistance. Everymovement they made to break with Goundar authority was realised as a threat. Thus,during a decade, social rationality was given priority over economic rationality by thefarmers. A severe six-year long drought contributed to end this situation. The farmersfinally electrified irrigation and dismissed the major part of their permanent labourforce. Thus, the labourers not only gained free mobility but simultaneously lost therights and security that had been attached to their bonds.

    Fixed boundaries, fluid landscapes: British expansion into Northern East Bengal in the 1820s2009In: Indian economic and social history review, ISSN 0019-4646, E-ISSN 0973-0893, Vol. 46, no 4, p. 513-540Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on questions of the formation of new polities and ruler-subject relations as a result of British colonial conquest of northern east Bengal and neighbouring states in the early nineteenth century. It emphasises ecological and climatic structuring conditions and is a contribution to research on changing spatial relations and transactions, transformation of hill-plain relations, and collisions between synoptic political visions and knowledge systems, and their implementation on particular landscapes and people. Particular attention is given to the time and place-bound formation of law for the control and access of land and natural resources. The study thus explores the tense relationship between a fluid, continuously changing landscape and the fixed notions of boundaries, government control and polities held by the British East India Company (EIC) and which they strove to implement in military and fiscal control in northern east Bengal. The study suggests that the means and principles by which bureaucratic control was established formed the basis for a form of fiscal citizenship whereby the subject was acknowledged as a person with rights and in communication with government. Such control was established in the formet Nawab's territories which mainly consisted of plains and therefore were landscapes that were intended to be agrarian. It is further suggested that when the neighbouring independent states and autonomous villages were brought under EIC rule, this was done by other means which in turn shaped different ruler-subject relations and eventually paved the way for the formation of dual polities under one government.

    Founding an Empire on India's North-Eastern Frontiers, 1790-1840: Climate, Commerce, Polity2014Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is a richly detailed historical work of the unsettled half-century from the 1790s to the 1830s when the British East India Company strove to establish control of the colonial north-eastern frontiers spanning the River Brahmaputra to the Burmese border. It offers a much-needed reframing of regional histories of South Asia away from the subcontinental Indian mainland to the varied social ecologies of Sylhet, Cachar, Manipur, Jaintia, and Khasi hills.As a mercantile corporation, the EIC aimed at getting in command of the millennium-old over-land commercial routes connecting India and China. The study specifically engages with the early nineteenth century explorations of trade across Burma. Simultaneously, the Mughal diwani grant compelled the EIC to govern territory. Drawing on extensive research, the study demonstrates the incompatibility of bureaucratic power, the complex socio-economic networks of authority, and the ever-changing landscapes of the region. In a monsoon climate, where rivers moved and land was inundated for months, any attempt to form a uniform administration tended to clash with hybrid landscapes and waterscapes. This work explores how daily administrative and military practice shaped colonial polities and subject formation.Located at the intersection of colonial, legal, and environmental history, the study is of particular interest for scholars and students in history, political ecology, and anthropology.

    • Reframes the regional history of South Asia away from the subcontinental Indian mainland
    • Located at the intersection of colonial, environmental, and legal history
    • Integrates climate history with socio-political history
    • Brings present-day north-east India into a wider historical and regional analysis
    • Addresses the gap in research on formative years of the British rule
    • Studies lesser-known areas like Cachar, Manipur, Tripura, and Jaintia

    Abstract [en]

    The British were unable to establish control over northeast Bengal due to the region’s climate and ecology, especially its fluid riverine systems. The ephemeral nature of land itself in Northeast Bengal made the region an “ungovernable” space for the British rulers. This “fluid nature” was incompatible with the ruling methods and the land-revenue settlement the East India Company tried to establish.

    “Natural Boundaries”: Negotiating Land Rights and Establishing Rule in Northern East-Bengal 1790s–1820s2014In: Savage Attack: Tribal Insurgency in India / [ed] Crispin Bates, Alpa Shah, New Delhi: Social Science Press, 2014Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Savage Attack: Tribal Insurgency in India the authors ask whether there is anything particularly adivasi about the forms of resistance that have been labelled as adivasi movements. What does it mean to speak about adivasi as opposed to peasant resistance? Can one differentiate adivasi resistance from that of other lower castes such as the dalits? In this volume the authors move beyond stereotypes of tribal rebellion to argue that it is important to explore how and why particular forms of resistance are depicted as adivasi issues at particular points in time. Interpretations that have depicted adivasis as a united and highly politicised group of people have romanticised and demonized tribal society and history, thus denying the individuals and communities involved any real agency. Both the interpretations of the state and of left-wing supporters of tribal insurgencies have continued to ignore the complex realities of tribal life and the variety in the expressions of political activism that have resulted across the length and breadth of the Indian subcontinent.

    Abstract [en]

    The process of forming British colonial governance and ruler-subject relations in Eastern Bengal was contextual, negotiated, and diverse. 

    The Mughal diwani of Bengal (1765) granted the British East India Company access to revenue resources over territories larger than the British Isles. However, collecting revenues depended on participation in complex socio-economic webs, resting on norms of personal relations between sovereign and subject. These were the Achilles' heel of the EIC. It not only lacked attachments to subjects, it also lacked the status and identities that would have made such attachments possible. We may usefully see the Company's revenue surveys as a search for subjects capable of claiming and justifying specific rights under EIC governance. These could only be established by meeting people and assessing the validity of their claims.

    The fiscal relations of landed property were by far the most extensive and institutionalized of the Company's relations to subjects. As such, it gave subjects only limited rights in the emerging polity. We may think of them as "fiscal subjects".

    But the EIC was an early-modern corporation of merchants; not a state. Driven by commercial interests and accountable to shareholders, the extensive revenue surveys in the 1790s became a bureaucratic quick-fix which the Company came to regret. The consequences proved disastrous. Universal land classifications clashed with environmental realities in a monsoon climate and, until the 1830s, the Company was forced to acknowledge Mughal privileges in land since they could not stand up against the socio-economic tenacity of the former polity.
