The Last Decades Of The 20Th Century Have Witnessed An Enlarged Understanding Of The Notion Of `Text` As Not Only Comprising Written Documents, But Also Rituals, Artefacts Etc. And Brought It Closer To The Social Religious Or Historical Contexts That Help To Interpret Texts. In Dealing With The Interdependence Between Text And Context The Essays Here Provide Fresh Insights To The Complexity And Fluidity Of Cultural Contexts That Use Text As Stable Points Of Reference. In This Book The Traditions Of Orissa Are Considered In Their Uniqueness As Well As In Their Relationship To South Asian Cultural Contexts On A Larger Scale.
