Taking into consideration the changes in the system of urban governance and the attempts at commercialisation of infrastructure, an analysis of trends and types of employment for the 1990s in rural and urban areas. 1399 Weaving a Myth The prescriptions of the high-powered committee on the handloom industry, mainly harping an export-oriented strategy, if taken seriously, will make handlooms a thing of the past, to be preserved in museums. 1381 'Then' and 'Now' Can popular memory exist autonomously from the elite structures in society in 'pure' and 'unadulterated' forms? What relevance does this have for the social historian? Recording aspects of popular memory in Orissa by weaving together information on colonial and post-1947 periods. 1391 Ways of Seeing The perception of the other for example the tribal other, is dependent on the subject who perceives.
