This book is the product of anthropological fieldwork carried out among Tamil-speaking villagers in a Hindu village in Southern India. The author argues that symbolic anthropologists have yet to appreciate the multifaceted function of the sign and its role in the creation of culture. This study underscores the need for Western intellectual traditions in general and anthropology in particular to deepen its discourse with South Asian cultural and religious thought.
