Anarkali was a gypsy girl from the the deserts of Persia who later became a dancer in the Mughal Emperor Akbar's court. She was buried alive for daring to love Prince Salim,(later Emperor Jehangir)the heir to the throne. Does the Anarkali in Mothers and Virgins have anything in common with this fiery symblol of beauty, youth and tragic love? After all, the modern Anarkali is a shy, timid Nazrani girl from India.They might be more similar than you think! And then there is Anna -- Anarkali's friend who lives in "Paradise". Two little dicky birds. Two little big birds. Do they fly away? Or come back?Find out how these girls analyze the anger of civilizations, and the reason the dispossessed become "discontents." Their take on the creation of third worlds, and the paradox inherent in the simultaneous worship of motherhood and virginity by both India and the Catholic Church. They think, therefore they are.
