Hindu Diaspora Global Perspectives
Description
'Diaspora Studies' have emerged as a major academic discipline in the past few decades as large groups of people have moved away from their places of birth to settle in foreign lands. This book details with the 'Diaspora' phenomenon and in particular with the 'Hindu Diaspora Phenomenon' as we know that Hindus are now settled in more than one hundred and fifty countries around the globe. In this book the contributors reflect and examine the myriad ways in which Hindu migrants negotiate their identity in the midst of alien cultures. Some scholars deal with historical perspectives, while others use; their personal experiences in foreign lands, within a broad theoretical framework, in order to highlight some negative imaging they have encountered both in educational institutions and at places of work. Some others reflect on the kind of temples that Hindus have built in their adopted countries, while still others ponder on questions like the impact of 'Food' on being 'Hindu' and also on the role of 'Women' in maintaining one's religious identity. Dealing as it does with a contemporary sociological issue which will be relevant for a long time to come, this book will add one more dimension to the on going Diaspora Studies.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
