The invitation to present this Memorial lecture is for me not only a great honour but also an important emotional occasion. The previous presenters of these Memorial Lectures were mainly attracted by Prof.M.N.Srinivas's quite outstanding breadth of knowledge, experience and analytical capacities. These attractions I of course also share but in my case there is an added element of a close personal friendship that started more than 50 years ago.
