Abstract: The paper depicted special category of Sanskrit Grammar, viz. Sampradana Karaka (a theta-role on gift) by emphasizing on the concept of politics of gift in ancient India. The discursive formation of a grammatical category was connected with the non-discursive formation of exchange and gift. The author also described the concept of ownership (svatva) and conditionality as explained in the Nyaya Philosophy and Manusamhita. He exemplified the case with so-called ‘Hindu’ marriage system, where the groom is treated as an object of gift from the feminist perspective.
