    social boycott

    The Panchayat's decision to boycott cricket also has the support of 27 other villages. The village elders say it's no great loss as it's not even the country's national game.

    We all have taken this decision and those who go against it will have to face social boycott. We have enshrined this in the Panchayat records of 28 villages," Tewa Singh, the head of Dadan Panchayat says.


    I know `boycott'.

    But what does `social boycott' mean in this context?

    Could you explain it pelase?

    Re: social boycott

    People in the community will boycott the offender.

    In the UK, this is known as "sending someone to Coventry".
