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.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books...
