Examined from within the framework of social history, the author delineates the evolution of the caste system in Orissa over the colonial and post-colonial period, bringing to life those involved in this process. Besides interrogating many commonly held assumptions, it opts for a far more flexible and interactional paradigm. As a result, this study accommodates a whole range of features related to the historical contexts and the complexities generated by the process of conversion.
