The Jews carved our a niche for themselves onthe Malabar coast of southwest India by a number of cultural strategies. By adhering to their distinctive traditions, including a complex dietary code, they earned their neighbors` respect. By fitting into the local social hierarchy, they positioned themeselves comfortably as merchants big and small, diplomats, soldiers, agriculturalists and, later, professionals. And by producing local mystics and healers, at least of whom became venerated as a wonder-worker by Hindus, Muslims and Christians, as well as Jews, they earned their right to be considered Indian. The Cochin Jews occupy the remotest corner of the Jewish diaspora, while at the same time forming the most microscopic of India`s myriad minorities. They are so tiny that they disappear from the usual cognitive maps. Since identity is never a mere given but an achievement, it must be earned. This book demonstrates how through interrelated means the Jews of Cochin have carved a well-integrated identity in Indian Society.
