Description :
This article examines public taps and private connections through the production of caste distinction and common sense in a Rajasthan drinking water supply project. To do so, it brings together geographic research on neoliberal water governance and caste processes in modern rural India to illuminate how neoliberal subjectivities deepened in the post-project phase. It shows the ways that caste norms, village water governance and state power converged to produce ‘new’ ways of thinking about water access and payment that undermined the social goals and the physical infrastructure of the project.
