Abstract

The study's purpose is to explore the impact that notions of ritual, caste, and religion had on Indian society during the 19th and 20th Century. The various authors give detailed analyses of Tamil and Telugu sources, emphasizing the historical background by accenting the newly established print media of the time. They show how these concepts played a crucial role in the formation of social, cultural, and religious identities, and with this vitally contribute to the history of colonisation in India.
