This chapter discusses the occupation of public space by the pandals, or temporary pavilions for festivities, becoming an important reference in the debates over legitimate use of public space and definitions of the public. It notes that such occupation of public space is not merely about appropriation of public infrastructure, but its material construction in terms of labor, material, and movement. It explains that in this phenomenon, two meanings of fungibility can be seen, as interchangeablity, which leads from standardization, as in the fungible quality of money or labor under capitalism, and reiterability, as multiple interpretations and/or transfiguration of the same element or specimen.
