Abstract: The book, The Remembered Village, is the result of an extensive fieldwork undertaken by one of the distinguished sociologists of our times, Professor M.N. Srinivas. In the early pages of the book, a few interesting details about the making of the book are revealed. In 1970, Srinivas revisits Oxford to complete his monograph, on a fatal day, (24 April 1970), a fire is started by arsonists in which his three copies of the draft monograph are reduced to ashes. Subsequently, after being motivated by Professor Sol Tax (who has also written an introduction to the book), Srinivas recreates his work relying entirely on his memory. Hence the book is aptly named – The Remembered Village and also there is an acknowledgment of the part played by the arsonists in the making of this book of ‘memory’. The book was first published in 1976. In 2015, after 39 years of its first publication, Professor T.R. Shama Bhat, one of the eminent teachers of Sociology, has excellently translated it into Kannada.
