Servants of The Goddess (The Modern-Day Devadasis)
Servants of The Goddess (The Modern-Day Devadasis)
Description
About The Book

Servants of the Goddess weaves together the heartbreaking , yet paradoxically life-affirming stories of five devadasis women, in the clutches of an ancient fertility cult, forced to serve the gods.

Catherine Rubin Kermorgant sets out attempting to make a documentary film about the lives of present-day devadasis. Through her, we meet and get to know the devadasi women of Kalyana, a remote village in Karnataka. As they grow to trust Kermorgant and, welcome her as an honorary sister, we hear their stories in their own words: stories of oppression, discrimination, violence and, most importantly, resilience. Kermorgant become a part of these stories and finds herself unwittingly enmeshed in a world a of gender and caste bias which extends far beyond kalyana all the way to Paris, where the documentary is to be edited and produced.

Servants of the Goddess is a testament to women’s strength and spirit, and a remarkably astute analysis of gender and caste relations in today’s rural India.

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.

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.
