The three essays in this volume give a graphic account of Indian Muslim festivals in the nineteeth century, as observed by the participants themselves. The majority of these participants were Hindus who added their own practices to these supposedly Islamic events. The French Indologist deTassy adds his own pungent comments to those of his sources, thus providing in this volume a fascinating interplay of cultural perspectives. This is the first translation into English of this classic nineteenth-century French work.
