Women’s labour is truly invisible, magical, and must be paid with “his love”.
Horns and Cows
Even in the so-called romantic cultures that celebrate passionate entanglements in its literature, films, and mythology — acting “out of love” is not always an equal experience. After the past two (almost) academic posts, today (while lying in my bed, sick with flu) I have realised that it’s time to unpack the condensed ideas that I tried putting through in my previous posts. I don’t want to get into the spiral of academic language (again)… So, let me try to just go with the flow and explain what I mean with the help of popular Hindu magniloquence of “love”. And a bit of random bursting out into songs where “I would do anything for love… I’d run right into hell and back…. I would do anything for love…”!!
