Interpreting Attached Labour in Contemporary Haryana

Interpreting Attached Labour in Contemporary Haryana Surinder S Jodhka WHILE I am grateful to Tom Brass for noticing my work and for his detailed responses [Brass 1995, 1996] to my papers in EPW [Jodhka 1994, 1995), I am also perturbed at the way he has reacted to my formulations. Not only had I not imagined that my work would unsettle and disturb him in the manner in which it seems to have done, but also I had actually thought I agreed with his position more than I disagreed with it. Instead of concentrating on the conceptual and empirical issues being debated, Brass in his second comment [Brass 1996] resorts to attacking me personally. Apart from sounding dismissive and arrogant, his comment is full of misrepresentations and half-truths. Therefore it calls for a rejoinder.
