In an India of sexual exploitation and female abuse, Dada Dharmadhikari’s is a sane and urgent voice. It is neither, shrill like the feminists nor insidiously diabolic like the stereotyping of the TV serials that are vitiating the complex issue of man-woman relationships. He calls for cultural hygiene and a healthy social order.

Dada Dharmadhikari gives a liberal twist to the ancient Ardhanarishwar concept of the cosmic coexistence of the male and female principle. He uses all his formidable learning and experience to come to this holistic conclusion-the answer does not lie in permissiveness. Nor does it lie in the fundamentalists insistence on placing her on a pedestal. He gives us glimpse beyond gender games and stereotypes into a world of genuine equality. Only both men and women walking together, on a spiritual journey of mutual respect and fellowship, can hope to reach this paradise lost and liberate the human race.
