Women Of Pride
Devadasi, raja dasi or kutcheri desi - devadasis have acquired a variety of definitions and roles over the years. Women of Pride studies in depth the devadasi tradition and its transformation into a living cultural phenomenon in the context of the Hindu tradition. The book brings into focus the activities and identities of the devadasis and examines the functions and forms of the devadasi tradition. The changing face of the tradition has been authenticated and given a voice by the author by featuring some of the most prominent devadasis of our times. The book also examines the devadasi reform movement in a political, religious, and social context.
