She’s been doing excellent work covering the rape in Delhi, that patriarchal mindset, the weird Indian combination of eroticism and sexism, and the death of the recent rape victim. You should be reading her blog and Avicenna’s to see what’s going on in India!
Taslima’s reports are so heartbreaking I almost wish she wasn’t so eloquent.
Hello, long time lurker but this is the first time I’ve posted. I’m mid-20s, Indian and male. I suppose that would explain why I’ve chosen to post on this topic…
I was introduced to Taslima’s blog through this site. I only managed to go through the first blog entry about the Delhi rape and the Trust Law poll stuck out to me. But most of the rest of it was spot on, even if it seemed to me that the generalization of misogyny in ‘indian culture’ was inaccurate.
But i’ve asked the question of about the Trust Law poll on that blog, but tthat post is awaiting moderation, so I thought I might try and ask it here. How useful is it? It is a poll of the opinions of experts/activists, their opinions. That seems to be flawed to me.
StevoR, fallible human being says
Agreed. Taslima Nasreen is a superb blogger.
Happy New Year and clear skies to y’all.
