    An elegy for nīti politics as a secular discursive field in the indian old régime.Velcheru Narayana Rao & Sanjay Subrahmanyam - 2008 - Common Knowledge 14 (3):396-423.

    4. a pragmatic response1.Velcheru Narayana Rao, David Shulman & Sanjay Subrahmanyam - 2007 - History and Theory 46 (3):409-427.
    In the years since its twin publication in 2001 and 2003 , Textures of Time has attracted a great deal more attention outside the United States than in the American academy. This, we suggest, is because its ideas and approach are rather at odds with the dominant trends in the area of “postcolonial studies.” In this response to three critical essays that engage with the book—by Rama Mantena, Sheldon Pollock, and Christopher Chekuri—we begin by setting out our principal hypotheses as (...)

    Introduction: From scratch.Miguel Tamen, Wayne Andersen, Velcheru Narayana Rao, Sanjay Subrahmanyam, Ingrid D. Rowland, J. Paul Hunter & Yoke-Sum Wong - 2008 - Common Knowledge 14 (3):380-383.
    The essay discusses the presumption of one's singularity, the uniqueness of one's time, the picturesqueness of one actions, and the capacity of human beings, whether corporately or individually, to begin everything or indeed anything again from scratch. Such presumptions are indeed present in some varieties of contemporary fanaticism, but, more to the point, it is suggested that the feeling of doing something for the first time is the oldest feeling in the world.
