The Goddess and The Slave

Drawing upon the rich inter-connected levels of meaning within the Fakir culture, especially with respect to the living, breathing paradigmatic Mother--as Nature, as the Goddess to be worshipped and as the mother whose service is her identity--The Goddess and the Slave demonstrates the crisis faced by the unique Baul-Fakir sadhana, by the non-urban Bengali, and by Indian society itself through the major changes brought by modernization and globalization.
