Images of the Body in India
South Asian and European Perspectives on Rituals and Performativity
This book engages with the concept of the body in its cultural context by acknowledging and demonstrating that the human body is understood differently in Western and Indian cultures. The contributors show that any attempt to put forward a single concept of the body within Indian culture would be misleading.
