Description: This monograph is a study of the semiotic aspects of giving and receiving, len-den as it is called, in the Hindi-speaking region of northern India. It is based on eighteen months of fieldwork, carried out mostly in the village of Panhansu, from September 1977 to March 1979. More specifically, it is a study of the way in which three important aspects of intercaste and kinship relations--aspects that I have called centrality and mutuality, as well as hierarchy--are differentially foregrounded and implemented in the contexts of the giving and receiving of particular named prestations.
