Outstanding and original, this book by Dr. Anvita Madan-Bahel (PhD, Columbia University) integrates the current theory and literature on South Asians and engages the reader in meaningful ways. There are few studies in Asian/Asian American studies and in psychology (as well as other fields such as cultural studies, film, etc) that address the spectrum of topics included in this creative, thoroughly researched and well-written book. This book will be a valuable reference for those in many disciplines, including Psychology, Asian Studies and Women's Studies. "In this seminal piece, Dr. Madan-Bahel uses Bollywood film clips to foster thinking and discussion on critical topics in sexual health for South Asian female youth. This work is unique and innovative in many key ways. ... Dr. Madan-Bahel offers a variety of recommendations for practice, research, and policy that will continue to influence the field for years to come. This is impressive, inspirational, and groundbreaking work!" - Christine J. Yeh, Associate Professor of Counseling Psychology, University of San Francisco
I was born in the early 50s, the second child of seven, in Madera Ca. We were a poor family and moved around a lot following the fruit, or we picked cotton in Oklahoma and Texas. I didn't start to write until later in my life, however I've always made up stories in my head for my own entertainment and to share with others. My husband encouraged me to write down one of my story, so I tried it and the stories came along so easy. Now I'm having such fun, writing Poems and short stories, and now even a few novels. I live in a small town outside of Salem Oregon and I'm married to a wonderful man; he's a musician and songwriter, an artist as well. We have two grown boys who have given us wonderful grandchildren. I have other hobbies; I raise a garden of flowers and vegetables, I quilt, do oil painting and I love to cook and make new receipts.
