    Cultural Issues; in the 21st Century...

    As A Tamil Man, I Suffered In Silence...

    "This was written with the intent to encourage Tamil society to be less judgmental and more accommodating towards those that go through hardship."

    "Many South Asian kids end up going through depression due to not being able to open up to their family, friends and parents especially. Our community has to open up to some extent in order to help and protect the younger generation who go through such hardship alone."

    Wedding without a ‘kanyadan’ ((கன்யாதான்)

    The Hindu; May 15/2017

    Weddings usually make headlines for the fame of the parties involved, or tales of conspicuous consumption. Very few set out to strike a blow to patriarchy as the Sahasrabuddhe-Chauthaiwale family wedding did last week. In Nagpur, famous for its oranges and home to the saffron project of the RSS, Ashay, son of BJP vice president Vinay Sahasrabuddhe and Shivada, the niece of BJP’s foreign affairs cell head, Vijay Chauthaiwale and daughter of Shreya and Shriram Chauthaiwale, entered wedlock in a ceremony that was officiated over by a female priest, but more importantly also edited out the all important Kanyadan (giving away of the bride) sanskar, so essential to Hindu weddings.

    Nayana Sahasrabuddhe, the mother of the bridegroom was especially firm that the Kanyadan ritual be edited out of the wedding ceremony. “I believe that a Kanya is not a commodity to be given away as daan. The ritual also takes away all sense of agency from the bride and is as though her parents are abdicating custody of her,” said Ms. Sahasrabuddhe...
