Rural South Asian Studies Journal is an exclusive venture where we have attempted to explore linkages and political cultural connections in South Asian Societies. The journal aims to develop critical ideas on less explored and innovative themes in rural South Asian social, cultural, art, architectural, political, and economic histories, sociological, economic, environmental and developmental issues. Scholars engaged with debates in literature, social sciences and environmental and physical sciences about the regions in South Asia can submit articles on a particular theme thus initiating a dialogue on theoretical and methodological issues pertaining to the objectives of the journal. RSAS also publishes reviews on significant new publications and media initiatives on the theme. Each issue aims to promote rigorous scholarship helpful in understanding our past and present discourses and its contradictions.
