Description
About the Book

Providing new perspectives on Hindu marriage in South Asian culture, the essays in this collections explore points at which the conceptual boundaries of marriage are crossed or transgressed. Rather than focus on ideal or normative expectations about marriage, the authors choose to examine those more revealing times at which such norms are tested or rejected. Drawing on folkstories, songs, and first-hand narrations of life stories that illuminate the marginal experience, these essays shed new light on Hindu widowhood, adultery, levirate, divorce, and sad, as well as on the subversion of marriage by devotion to dieties and by alternative constructions of conjugal duty and marital experience.

Combining insights from anthropology, Indology, folklore, and the history of religions, this collection is an important contribution to the cross-cultural study of marriage and gender issues, and to our understanding of these facets of South Asian society and culture.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
