Social Anthropology and Literary Sensibility

INTRODUCTION BY way of introduction, I would like to say a few words about my encounters with Hassan Raja Rao, and my relationship with Edwin Thumboo, I first met Raja Rao when he visited our house on College Road in Mysore in the early 1930s. He came to meet my eldest brother, Parthasarathy (known to his friends as Pachu), and he was accompanied by his French wife. He was in a white 'kurta' and 'dhoti' worn the north Indian way. Pachu was a staunch follower of the social reformer and mystic. Pandit Taranath, and Raja Rao may have wanted to talk about Pandit Taranath with Pachu. Anyway, some time later, I read an account of Raja Rao's interview with Pandit Taranath in the ASIA magazine, published from New York.
