(This) Absorbing New Book Shows How Subtly And Imaginatively Indian Attitudes Toward Same-Sex Unions Have Evolved Over The Centuries&And Offers A Marvelously Global Perspective Characterized By Profound Historical Understanding, Impeccable Scholarship, And A Rare And Delightful Precision Of Feeling. - Terry Castle, Professor At Stanford University, Editor Of The Literature Of Lesbianism. Why Should The State S Refusal To Recognize A Union As Marriage Mean That The Union Is Not A Marriage? In Love S Rite Ruth Vanita Asks This Challenging Question In Order To Emphasize That Mutual Consent And Family And Community Recognition Validate A Marriage-And This Support Frequently Extends To Same-Sex Marriages As Well. When People Claim The Right To Marry, Their Sex Or Sexuality Is Not Intrinsic To That Right, Although Social Prejudice Makes It Appear So. Moreover, It Cannot Be Denied That A Multitude Of Events And Depictions In Vastly Different Cultures, Times And Places, All Point To The Possibility Of Same-Sex Love And Commitment Being Recognized And Accepted. Marriage Is A Universal Rite Of Passage That Can, In The Right Circumstances, Become The Perfect Ceremony Of Love S Rite . Vanita Examines The Twin Phenomena Of Same-Sex Weddings And Same-Sex Joint Suicides (Mostly Female) That Have Been Reported From Many Parts Of India. She Argues That These Couples, When They Choose To Marry Or Die Together, Invoke Long-Standing But Fluid Indian Legal, Religious, And Literary-Cinematic Traditions To Declare Their Love To The World. Using Her Intimate Knowledge Of Ancient Indian Textual History, The Author Demonstrates That Same-Sex Love And Relationships Are Deeply Rooted In Indian Culture- And Compares The Cultural And Legal Implications Of Same-Sex Marriage In India With Those In The West. The International Debate On Same-Sex Marriage Is Relevant To All Democratic Societies Today. Ruth Vanita Brings A Fresh Perspective To This Debate, Suggesting That Same-Sex Marriage Dwells At The Heart, Not On The Margins, Of Culture. An Effortless Combination Of Empathy, Moral Conviction And Deep Cultural Sensitivity -Ashis Nandy

Erlebt eine Kurzgeschichte über zwei Personen, wie sie unterschiedlicher nicht sein können - und trotz allen Widrigkeiten zueinander gefunden haben. Auf der Suche nach der Liebe wird Kianu bei seinem eigenen Volk gemieden. Auch wenn Liebe keine Grenzen kennen sollte, scheint sie in Kianus Umfeld keinen Einklang zu finden, sobald sie nicht den normalen Werten des Volkes entspricht. Kianu verfolgt trotz allem seine eigenen Ziele, lebt mit dem Kopf in den Wolken und sieht in jedem Menschen das Gute. Aber er wird das Gefühl nicht los, dass etwas in seinem Leben fehlt. Erst als ihm der Halbdämon Yashar über den Weg läuft, kommen in Kianu zweifel auf. Verwirrt von seinen eigenen Gefühlen verliert er schließlich die Orientierung und scheint von alleine nicht mehr aus dem Labyrinth seiner Selbst herauszukommen, während Yashar alles versucht, um Kianus Aufmerksamkeit für sich zu gewinnen.

Suburban Legends Of The Living And The Dead

Eugene Kachnarsky grips your full attention by flinging widely open a few of the infinite portals of perception and awareness to consider why we feel the things we do, as he takes a "kid's-eye-view" look at the "grown-up" world. The intertwined tapestry of stories reveals the sublime, ridiculous, triumphant, and tragic ways in which ordinary people deal with the often extraordinary consequences of their choices and actions. These ironic and karmic accounts tell tales of love, crime, poverty, tragedy, greed and evil in a thoughtful, sometimes playfully humorous, youthful voice as they delve with wonder into the depths that lie beneath the surface of all things—in a quiet, sleepy metropolitan suburb.
