Session 1:

The evening will develop around the presentation: I
" The Two Major Underlying Causes For the abuse of women in India which need to be changed. "
Essay By Narveen Aryaputri. M.A. English Lit.; B.Ed.

Sub-title: The underlying causes for the frequency of rape: subjugation of women through the use of violence.

Rape has been used in extended history to subjugate people, both men and women.
What does this show of us, as civilized societies, when some scriptural texts clearly specify the humiliation of women? Rape, then, is not far behind

The question of subliminal influences of scriptural texts will be discussed.

The specific couplet demeaning women from the Bhagavad Gita, the philosophical scriptural text of India, will be quoted and highlighted. Does the Gita need to be " 21st. C updated " with an American version eliminating the offensive couplet? Other examples from the scriptural texts of India will be quoted and highlighted in the essay.

The discussion of the status of women in India is the current focus of the evolution in thought and behavior that we have been highlighting at the Institute for quite some time now. Ongoing focus continues as light challenges darkness on all fronts. We at the Institute believe we are in a ' paradigm shift' as Thomas Kuhn would say.
This is an awakening and a strengthening and new beginnings occur.
