Book Details









Age Guidance:

The Kamasutra is a remarkable document, which gives an insight into the social and political ethos of ancient India. It is not just a handbook on sex. The philosophical implications and the opinions it expresses, reflect attitudes of the historical period in which it was written. Vatsayana read and considered the works of ancient authors and compiled the Kamasutra while he was leading the life of a religious student. This abridged and edited version of the ancient literary Classic is richly illustrated with Tarun Chopra's photographs of the works of artists who were inspired by Vatsayana. They state that human life must concern itself with the religious, sexual and artistic experience. The miniature paintings in this book have been taken from various private collections, while the sculptures have been taken from the various ancient and medieval temples spread across the Indian sub-continent.
