Complete Story: Territoriality pdf
Territories' are not simply spaces but spaces that belong to someone and therefore evoke different emotions: a sense of ownership, passion, love and loyalty. Even poems celebrate a space only when there is territorial self-consciousness. But 'territories' could not have been created without the transformation of the relationship between men and the land, the changing meaning of production and wealth. As a first instance, nomadic tribes would not have a sense of territory because of their lack of attachment to a single space. This essay examines the circumstances under which 'territories' were created in the space corresponding to present day India and the evidence pointing to it.
