The Powerful Ephemeral: Everyday Healing in an Ambiguously Islamic Place

By Carla Bellamy | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This book would not have been possible without the participation and patience of what sometimes feels like the entire population of Jaora. First of all, I am extremely grateful to Haji Sarwar ‘Ali Khan and Mr. M. K. Taimuri, respectively mutavallī and waqf board representative to Ḥusain Ṭekrī Sharīf during the period of my research. Without their support, this project would not have been possible. The entire staff at Ḥusain Ṭekrī was unfailingly gracious and helpful. Deep and heartfelt thanks to the Chippas, especially Farzana and Khadija, who made Jaora feel like home; their fabulous senses of humor made even really difficult days bearable. Thanks to Harun Chippa and the others at the milk stall for always giving me a comfortable place to sit with a cold drink, to Syed Nadir Shah for all the tea and insight, and to everyone at Fatima Guest House for providing a comfortable and cheerful place during my first visit to Ḥusain Ṭekrī and for enthusiastically maintaining an open door whenever I stopped by to interview their guests. Thanks also to all the shopkeepers of Ḥusain Ṭekrī for their time and willingness to share their knowledge, and heartfelt thanks to the countless pilgrims who shared their time and experiences with me. Special thanks to Suroor Kaif for his help in deciphering some challenging and poorly photocopied Urdu, and thanks to his family for opening their friendly home to me. I am grateful to H.E. Merchant in Bombay for his time and for making an extra effort to meet with me. For their openness and kindness I extend heartfelt thanks to the entire crew at Santa Cruz East-thanks especially to Babli, Muhammad, and ‘Abid. In Delhi, I thank
