village…shows the life a young mill worker in an industrial section of Delhi and follows him on a return visit to his village in Uttar Pradesh. Changes and continuities in his life are documented by his conversations with his friends at the mill and by observations of how he works and spends his leisure time in both city and village. The traditional religious singing in the city and the new land consolidation in the village suggest that dichotomous “modern-traditional” models of change do not necessarily apply in the Indian context. And the question of whether this mill worker is a village man or city man remains unanswered.
