Michael Jackson extends his path-breaking paintings in existential anthropology by way of targeting the interaction among modes of human life: that of partaking in different peoples’ lives and that of turning inward to one’s self. Grounding his dialogue within the refined shifts among being acted upon and taking motion, Jackson exhibits how the old complexities and particularities present in human interactions show the dilemmas, conflicts, cares, and matters that form all of our lives. via images of people encountered during his travels, together with family and friends, and anthropological fieldwork pursued over a long time in such areas as Sierra Leone and Australia, Jackson explores adaptations in this subject matter. As he describes the methods we tackle and negotiate the vexed relationships among “I” and “we”—the one and the many—he can be resulted in think about where of suggestion in human lifestyles.

A maid washed the dishes and kept the house clean. A full-time gardener also doubled as a watchman. And there was a Brahmin cook. The most remarkable feature of our life was evening meetings when, as a rule, men congregated in one room and women in another. Children were not allowed to attend these discussions, but we stayed on the steps of a staircase and listened to the talk, which ranged from the bizarre to the profound. ). Being at a Mission school meant heavy doses of English language and literature and compulsory Bible classes.

Is this defeatist? A confirmation that, for us, the poor will always remain unthinkable? And where does such a conclusion leave us? Withdrawn into the safe confines of our own small world, immunized from the perils of actually entering the world with which we claim solidarity, consoled by poetry? Or inspired to return to the streets until we find one person whose life is changed, no matter how imperceptibly, by his or her encounter with us, so that the question is no longer whether solidarity can be thought into existence but how it is actually brought into existence by our everyday choices of what we do.

But thanks to the librarian, Daulat Singh Chauhan (and what a ramshackle library he had, probably containing less than 10,000 books), I embarked on a curriculum of my own. He urged me to go through ‘histories’—the history of English literature, the history of Western political thought, the history of economic ideas, the history of religion, and so forth. In one of the junk piles at the library, I found a beat-up but complete edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica and I persuaded my parents to have it bound and placed on the library shelf.
