Love is not a word: The Culture and Politics of Desire ‘For an emotion that drives the plot of most books and movies, there are few works analysing love, its many meanings and contexts. This lacuna motivated Debotri Dhar to compile the anthology Love is Not a Word: The Politics and Culture of Desire. Through the lens of literature, politics and personal narratives, the essays here flit from the Kama Sutra to Tinder, Gita Govinda to Ghalib, love amid the landmines of caste and religion to how cities anchor love and even, how to love trees…It is beyond any book to do justice to the multitudes that love encompasses, but these essays present a medley of perspectives that underline universal feelings and experiences.’ Book review of Love is not a word: The Culture and Politics of Desire
