Has there been a ‘conspiracy of silence’ regarding sexuality in India, be it within social movements or as a focus of scholarship? A Question of Silence? interrogates this assumption in order to thematise a crucial field. Prefaced by a detailed introductory overview, the essays use diverse perspectives to develop an understanding of the institutions, practices and forms of representation of sexual relations and their boundaries of legitimacy.  From unravelling the Kamasutra (the text) to investigating KamaSutra (the condom) the volume includes essays on how sexuality has been framed by the law, within social movements, or has been the site for patrolled caste, ethnic or gender identities. Other essays analyse cinematic, televisual and literary representations of sexuality. Taken as a whole, this book makes room for more wide-ranging approaches for tackling the sexual economies of desire and violence among men and women in modern India.

John In India, the issue of adverse sex ratio has been a part of our history since at least the colonial period. It re-emerged as a major problem in the 1970s. Whether it be British officials in the nineteenth century trying to figure out why Rajputs and Jats killed their baby daughters, or demographers in post-colonial India wondering why the total number of women is declining relative to men even after independence, there has been no shortage of puzzles and differences in approaching this issue.
