Currently, men and women want to avoid being tortured, marginalized by society from a social point of view. Sometimes the situation is very critical and there are people who have suddenly lost everything. The belief is that costiveness will turn into an innovation. The crisis is that those who turned the progress of living it into an opportunity. Arun Joshi tried in his fiction novel “the Foreigner” with a character Sindi Oberoi who believed in the cyclical misfortune of losing his childhood family. The shelter collapsed from his head, and he was standing there thinking of a meaningless life and struggling to commit suicide. Everyone is alienated here from birth to death. Only our karma must live a segregated life that shines like gold.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Khusboo Rani Copyright (c) 2021 Khusboo Rani 2021-11-29 2021-11-29 1 8 10.24113/ijellh.v9i11.11202 Representation of Padmavati and the Recurring Image of an ‘Ideal Woman’ <p>The paper entitled, “Representation of Padmavati and the Recurring Image of an ‘Ideal Woman’” with the representation of Padmavati in the epic titled <em>Padmavat </em>by Jayasi and <em>Padmaavat</em>, a film adaptation of the epic directed by Bhansali. It also focuses on how people view her today. She is represented as an ideal woman, who sacrificed her own life to preserve her chastity and thereby the honour of her own community. She is attributed all ideal qualities that is expected in a woman. Her adherence to these qualities construed by the patriarchal society and her act of “Jauhar” made her rise to the level of a goddess. However, these qualities are not the mere construction of a community or era alone. It has been existing since time immemorial. There has been a tendency to stereotype women as meek, gentle, submissive etc. since the time of Manu which has found its way into popular myths and legends. The story of Padmavati also borrows this same image of an ideal woman and her glorification.</p> Sharon Soby Varghese Copyright (c) 2021 Sharon Soby Varghese 2021-11-29 2021-11-29 9 22 10.24113/ijellh.v9i11.11203 Factors that are Associated with Homosexuality <p>The both comparative and affirmatives studies about homosexuality, truth, fact such all things were included in this paper.
