Water has emerged as a critical issue that will determine if Asia is headed toward greater cooperation or greater competition. Asia, with the lowest per capita freshwater availability among all continents, is at the center of global water challenges. In an ever-deeper search for water, millions of pump-operated wells threaten to suck Asia's groundwater reserves dry, even as the continent confronts river depletion.

In Asia, water has gone from being just an environmental issue to becoming a strategic issue. Governments have been slower than public opinion in recognizing this shift. Yet the rise of nontraditional security issues has promoted the quiet "securitization" of water.

If Pakistan wishes to preserve the Indus treaty, despite its diminishing returns for India, it will have to strike a balance between its right to keep utilising the bulk of the river system’s waters and a corresponding obligation (enshrined in international law) not to cause “palpable harm” to its co-riparian state by exporting terror.

ignificantly, India’s treaties with Pakistan and Bangladesh are the only pacts in Asia with specific water-sharing formulas on cross-border flows. They also set a new principle in international water law.

Erotic as a genre is not new to us. We have always had a strong tradition of it in India-- Kalidasa’s Shakuntala and Jayadeva’s Gita Govinda are laced with erotic descriptions and is a celebration of a woman’s physicality, the temples of Khajuraho are known for their erotic carvings, we are after all the land of the Kamasutra,

Sex is an emotion that is gender neutral, it unites man and woman. But a woman’s sexual needs are still viewed as unacceptable. Why?

People can't read it openly, buy it, or talk about it

We have a rich heritage of erotic literature, but it has somehow become infamous, and people feel shy to talk about it.

Women feel shy to talk about their sexual desires, even with their husbands. Parents feel embarrassed to talk about it with their kids. I want to know why?

My book is for women to feel motivated to open up and have a dialogue about their sexual desires, and feel sexually empowered.

The very concept of sex today is very different from what it used to be as it doesn’t come with the promise of a long-standing commitment, neither is it bound by marriage alone.

I think the gender rules are being reversed and today men and women are in a competitive sport where women too are happy to fly solo and wary of commitment and also no longer willing to be a doormat.

I am deeply inspired by Kalidasa’s Abhigyanam Shakuntalam, and always wondered what if we saw the classic from the viewpoint of the woman instead?

Yogi Adityanath has studied in as many as 7 Schools. So, we had to be at all those places, talk to concerned people, take down notes. It was hectic, but enjoyable nonetheless.
