The Time of Youth
Drawing on long-term multisite ethnographic fieldwork in Allahabad and Meerut, this article examines how educated unemployed young men, from different socio-economic backgrounds, struggle for employment and engage with politics and religion in the age of neo-liberalism.
I am very thankful to Sunny Goswami, Sundar Gujjar, Manoj Kumar and Vineet Singh for helping in conducting interviews in Allahabad and Meerut.
