The Kamasutra is the oldest extant textbook of erotic love. But it is more than a book about sex. It is about the art of living--about finding a partner maintaining power in a marriage committing adultery living as or with a courtesan using drugs--and also of course about the many and varied positions available to lovers in sexual intercourse and the pleasures to be derived from each. The Kamasutra was composed in Sanskrit the literary language of ancient India sometime in the third century probably in North India. It combines an encyclopedic coverage of all imaginable aspects of sex with a closely observed sexual psychology and a dramatic novelistic narrative of seduction consummation and disentanglement. Best known in English through the highly mannered padded, and inaccurate nineteenth-century translation by Sir Richard Burton the text is newly translated here into clear vivid sexually frank English. This edition also includes a section of vivid Indian color illustrations along with three uniquely important commentaries: translated excerpts from the earliest and most famous Sanskrit commentary (thirteenth century) and from a twentieth-century Hindi commentary, and explanatory notes by the two translators. The lively and entertaining introduction by translator Wendy Doniger one of the world's foremost Sanskrit scholars discusses the history of The Kamasutra and its reception in India and Europe analyses its attitudes toward gender and sexual violence and sets it in the context of ancient Indian social theory scientific method and sexual ethics.

He has a shoddy love life, is heart broken and feels that he is the loneliest person on the face of this earth.It's a story connecting all those small little incidents in one's life that one never forgets.It's a journey through growing up. A journey from love, to out of it. Through joy, sadness and anger. About childhood friendship blooming into love. About the one you love not loving you back. About friends making each other happy, and about friends making each other sad - about friends fighting. It's about being completely sure about things, and at the same time, being utterly unsure about them. It's about school, college and professional life. It's a lot about the heart, and its desires.It's a story about finding it tough to adjust at times, and then missing it later when they are over.'
