Audacity of Pleasure
Sexualities, Literature and Cinema in India
New Delhi , 2018
It is a good time to take stock of paths and makers in the cultural battleground of sexualities in India. To note the impossibility of quantifying wins and losses because this war against moral panics cannot be measured by legislative gains. The politics of sexuality in the arts as well as the everyday in India lies, rather, in a fecund grey area that bristles with the sheer audacity of imagined and real pleasures. In some crucail sense, it must always remain audacious.
