F G Bailey, the renowned British social anthropologist,\ud conducted fieldwork in Bisipara in the highlands of\ud Orissa in the 1950s to examine the ways in which the\ud state, democracy and new forms of economy were\ud changing the traditional organisation and apprehension\ud of power and status. At the time, and following the\ud Temple Entry Act, the former untouchables of the village\ud attempted to gain entry to the Shiva temple. On that\ud occasion, and as Bailey recounts, they were unsuccessful.\ud A new fieldwork conducted in 2013 in the same location\ud presents an update of the continuing drama\ud surrounding the Shiva temple, against a backdrop of the\ud changing polity and economy of the village, and as a\ud manifestation of contested postcolonial\ud identity politics.
