Untitled Letter to Robert Chambers

Publication year: 

This letter from Jimmy Mascarenhas of MYRADA includes interesting comments on a PRA in India. What has been assumed to be a homogeneous community was revealed to have hierarchical castes within it. Farmers also have their own institutions which are separate from formal institutions: village leadership rests with revered elders or dynamic youngers. Women also had a 'shadow' committee comprised of the wives of the informal male committee. Information revealed by a mapping exercise and the mapping process are also described.
