Ruth Vanita

Paperback    9788190227254


Written in a style that is informed by scholarship yet accessible to the general reader, and boldly addressing a number of issues which South Asian society would ‘rather not talk about’, this is a timely volume which effectively narrows the looming gap between sexuality and gender

Product Description

Gandhi’s Tiger and Sita’s Smile presents a collection of compelling essays which interrogate a variety of Indian texts and contexts along intersecting axes of gender, nation and desire.

These captivating and intensely thought-provoking writings demonstrate the author’s superb ability to turn the norm on its head, and find a fresh way to appreciate diversity and change, and the valuable dialogue they give rise to.
