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.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
