India Needs a Sexual Revolution

India Needs a Sexual Revolution | TalkSexIndia | Scoop.it
India's sexual mores and institutions are rooted in a pastoral past. To stop the constant harassment of women, change the country's puritanical culture.
Saliha Bava's insight:

Navrati, Shikha Dalmia writes in the WSJ, an "ancient practice wasn't meant to pamper the girls. It served to remind men of the qualities—mental courage, spiritual wisdom, purity of mind and strength of character—embodied in the feminine spirit, without which, according to Hindu scriptures, the cosmos would collapse into decadence and chaos." How are Indian men upholding this as a WAY of BEING not just as token ritual? Treating women as sexual property is NOT the glorification of this ancient practice.
