Hindu-Muslim Differential in Childhood Death an...
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

We find that Muslims are subject to a number of advantages, in addition to the better known disadvantages, which appear to contribute to their lower child death. However, part of the Muslim death advantage remains unexplained. Muslim children in India face substantially lower mortality risks than Hindu children. This is surprising because one would have expected just the opposite: Muslims have, on average, lower socio-economic status, higher fertility, shorter birth-spacing, and are a minority group in India that may be expected to live in areas that have relatively poor public provision. Higher mortality amongst Hindus has gone largely unnoticed. This Subject Report examines infant and child death and their determinants for India as a whole and for individual states, using data from the National Family Health Survey. Neonatal (first month), post neonatal (age 1 11 months), infant (first year), and child (age 1 4 years) mortality are estimated, as well as the effects of socioeconomic background characteristics, demographic characteristics, using information from women s birth histories pertaining to children born during the last 10-year period before the survey.

Getting married
73,20 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Getting Married is the third and final volume on Hindu and Buddhist life-cycle rituals among the Newars of the ancient city of Bhaktapur in Nepal. It combines extensive fieldwork and the edition and translation of relevant ritual handbooks. While Handling Death, the first volume, focussed on the dynamics of death and ancestor rituals, and Growing Up, the second volume, focussed on the rituals of childhood, adolescence and youth (especially the male and female initiation rituals), the present volume deals with a number of rituals related to marriage. After an introductory overview of studies on marriage rituals in Nepal the authors give some basic marriage rules of Hindu and Buddhist Newars, the social topography and hierarchy, the families of the marriage partners as well as the problems of endogamy and exogamy in Bhaktapur. They present a detailed description of Hindu and Buddhist marriage rituals among Newars (which are partly documented on the DVD included in this book) and come to relevant conclusions regarding life-cycle rituals in general and the place marriage rituals occupy in Newar society and Hinduism. Furthermore the texts used by Brahmin and Buddhist priests during these rituals are edited and translated and complemented by comprehensive Appendices including a list of elements of Newar rituals and mantras as well as a mantra and general index to all three volumes. The richly illustrated books have been highly appreciated by the scholarly community as a unique attempt to provide a comprehensive ethno-indological study of all major life-cycle rituals of a certain Hindu and Buddhist community.

Uncovering Death Practices Among the Tamil Hind...
28,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book seeks to explore the changes in Tamil Hindu death practices in Singapore, brought about by external factors. In tracing the changes, we examine the politics of space in landscapes of death, where different meanings were invested in the site, bring about a conflict of interests. In pursuing development and modernization, policies were introduced by the state and community representatives were also employed to rationalize state policies in prioritizing land space for the living over the dead, and consequently led to the stealthy switch from burial practices to cremation in disposing the dead. These changes in funeral practices have altered and shaped the conception of it in contemporary society, making space for customization of rituals, yet reinforces the identity and norms of the Tamil Hindu community.
