Haksar's version, to be published by Penguin on Feb. 3, 2011, sees the ancient text updated from a sex guide to a lifestyle reference guide.
The Kama Sutra is a broad survey of sexual and social relationships between men and women, asserts Indian scholar A.N.D. Haskar. He has written a revised version of the 1,800 year old text as he attempts to put it back on people's reading list by adapting it to modern lives and relationships and presenting it as a "lifestyle guide for the modern man and woman."
He says, "Any honest reading of the book will tell you that it is a broad survey of sexual and social relationships between men and women." "A new, faithful translation of the Kama Sutra turns stereotypes on their head and gives the 1,800-year-old text a whole new position -- back on your reading list," CNN said.
The original Kama Sutra does not have any pictures, just words without graphic graphics. The Kama Sutra is not all about sex. Just a fraction of the Kama Sutra, roughly 1/24th, concerns copulation. Vatsyayana, the 3rd BCE author of the Kama Sutra, wrote it "while observing a celibate's life in full meditation." That's right, no funny stuff, none at all. More>>
