Time for Community
Villagers-in-the-city are people whose village land was swallowed up by the expanding city in the process of urbanization. This chapter explores the terms for the appropriation of their land and the ways in which their kinship arrangements have evolved. Because they have not migrated, these people have more extensive social networks than the migrant workers. Because the terms of land appropriation have been quite favorable, many of these families are relatively well-off and have time for community building. As an example of their community building and networking activities, this chapter also uses the institution of matchmaking as a case study.
