From the Book

In A Phulkari From Bhatinda Professor H. S. Gill has presented a series of dramatic events in the life of Preeto unfolding a panorama of conceptual structures around the basic thresholds of marriage, birth and death when she is offered a Phulkari as a token of auspicious happiness and fulfilled vows. This simple narrative reads like a primer of Indian sociology. It is followed by two analytical chapters—Preeto‘s Cultural Heritage: the Legends of the Punjab, and Preeto‘s Phulkari, Signs and Significance, supplemented by a series of thirty-six reproductions in colour The logical correlates of the metaphysical precautions with the fundamental psychic urges of our people deduced by Professor Gill have never been so transparent and it is quite possible that the neglect to know ourselves was due primarily to the earlier simplistic adage of native superstitions. This study should go a long way in cleaning the fog of our ethnological misunderstanding.
