The word 'Shakti' means the power or energy of women as personified and expressed by divine females, the alter egos of every-woman. 'Shakti' is amply portrayed in these women's accounts of their experiences.The stories collected here record the lives of Indian women from Hindu, Muslim and Christian backgrounds living in the Pietermaritzburg area of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and they demonstrate the pride these women have in their ancient cultures as well as their strength and determination in adversity.The value of this collection does not merely lie in its ability to entertain; the stories reveal the women's sense of their own worth in an at times hostile society, as wives, teachers, political activists, professionals and religious leaders.There is an urgent need to appreciate and celebrate the religious and cultural beliefs and practices of others. In recent years, stories of people in 'previously disadvantaged' communities have tended to overlook the experiences of Indian women. "Shakti: Stories of Indian Women" attempts to give expression to voices that represent a vibrant and vital section of this county's diverse population.

This brave and moving collection of stories by South African lesbian women from different backgrounds reminds us, again, that rights are never finally won in legislatures or in court rooms. They are won by people exercising them. The authors of the stories and poems in this book have done just that. They have stood up to celebrate the dignity of lesbian women in South Africa. Each contribution is different. And each intensely personal. And each one reminds us of the urgent need for us to stop hate crime and to create a safe society for all LGBT South Africans.

Hinduism in Natal - A Brief Guide (Paperback, illustrated edition): Alleyn Diesel, Patrick Maxwell Hinduism in Natal - A Brief Guide (Paperback, illustrated edition)
Alleyn Diesel, Patrick Maxwell
R263 Discovery Miles 2 630 Special order

There are almost half a million Hindus in South Africa and the visible evidence of their religion is colourful, widespread and familiar - temples, flags, festivals and doorways hung with garlands. But other communities have little knowledge of the spiritual richness of Hinduism and are generally unaware of the many strands that comprise it. This guide describes the outstanding features of Hinduism in one of the world's largest Hindu communities outside India. The authors examine the beliefs and practices common to all Hindus, and those aspects which distinguish the main groups. Though teachings and doctrines are not overlooked this title is not concerned primarily with the philosophy of Hinduism; it aims, rather, to make the practice and experience of the religion understandable and interesting to outsiders.
