Introduction to Cultural Anthropology Dr. Joseph S. Alter, Office Hrs M. W. 12 - 1:30 Study Guide Questions for Dadi and Her Family The film Dadi and Her Family is set in the North Indian state of Haryana and depicts the family life of men and women in a Jat peasant household. Jats are a caste group whose traditional occupation is farming. They have a reputation for being hard working, down-to-earth folk. In terms of the caste hierarchy they are ranked fairly high, but as a politically powerful community they wield even greater power than their ritual status would indicate. Dadi is the grandmother around whom the film revolves showing her relationship to her sons, daughters, daughters-in- law, and husband. In the film Dadi’s youngest son is getting married. This has important consequences for the family unit. 1. What kind of residence pattern after marriage is characteristic among the Jats of Haryana, North India? - The families are patrilineal. The wife moves in and becomes a part of the husband's family. While visits to her own family are frequent, for many practical purposes marriage consists of a woman becoming part of the husband's family group.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
