(p.143) 4 Community Development to the Blue Revolution
Stanford University Press

This chapter takes a look at the slow transformation from wealth redistribution to capital accumulation of the state of Kanyakumari and how this influenced the coastal understandings of moral economy and community. The chapter serves as an ethnographic equivalent to the final half of Chapter 3, as it looks at the fisher memories of the first two postindependence decades and the occurrence of state-led development. This chapter also poses the question of how the combination of democracy and development played out on the coast and shows how the mediating structures of sociality and sovereignty created forms of unequal citizenship and continued within the grid of postcolonial development.

Keywords:   wealth redistribution, capital accumulation, democracy, moral economy, community, fisher memories, unequal citizenship, postcolonial development
