dc.description.abstractThis paper presents research into the negotiation between the meta-narrative of Hindu nationalism and local maps by religious practitioners in India. By presenting brief case studies of a range of ritual spaces, this paper conveys that India functions as a space of dispersion. Then, this paper traces the development of Hindu nationalism through the 1996 General Elections in India. Paying particular attention to the onset of regionalization in Indian politics, this paper considers when and how the Bharatiya Janata Party, a Hindu nationalist party, has been elected, to conclude that practitioners discard meta-narratives that attempt to colonize their local map.
