Por los poderes de la tierra, por la presencia del fuego, por la inspiración del aire, por las virtudes del agua, invoco y conjuro a Pomba Gira María Padilha, por la fuerza de los corazones sagrados y de las lágrimas derramadas por amor, para que se dirija a (nombre de la otra persona) donde está trayendo su espíritu ante mi(tu nombre), amarrándolo definitivamente al mío. Que su espíritu se bañe en la esencia de mi amor y me devuelva el amor en cuádruple. Que (su nombre) jamás quiera a otra persona y que su cuerpo solo a mi (el tuyo) me pertenezca. Que (su nombre) no beba, no coma, no hable, no escuche, no cante a no ser en mi presencia. Que mis grilletes lo apresen para siempre, por los poderes de esta Oración. Minhas pombas gira use su poder y aleje a (su nombre) de cualquier mujer con que él esté en este momento; y si estuviera que llame mi nombre... ]]>

<![CDATA[indian ladies must respect themselves first]]> http://imow.org/community/forum/viewThread?threadId=603 Sun, 08 Jan 2012 21:30:22 GMT Sunday, January 08, 2012 1:30:22 PM

there is a culture name dowry in india,according to this ritual ,the parents or guardians of the bride ,have to give money to the family of the groom..for this ritual, many time the bride's family suffers a lot, sometimes they use to be homeless even foodless, but they are forced to give dowry.they use to do it for their daughter's happyness.the psychology is ,if they give dowry, the in-laws will be good with their daughter..but in most of the cases the in-laws becomes greedy ,and create pressure to bring more from paternal house.many time comparisons are also done between the dowry given by the parents of the wives of the men of same family ,or different families,and accordingly the respect are given.. the shameful part is the mentality of the ladies,most of the time they denies the fact that ,dowry system is a process which makes them cheap in front of the society ,they cannot be rated according the money of dowry,in fact they don't want to think that ,they are priceless ,money cannot measure them.and for that most of the time they accept to get marry after giving money at any cost,some time they creates pressure to their parents who cannot arrange dowry,they use to feel proud to say how much dowry given in their marriage,being woman they never feel shame when another woman is harassed for less dowry in front of them,in fact they enjoy the torture toward another woman for dowry and if one get a so called higher status than another according to dowry then she too start torturing to that poor ‘below status ‘lady.. if this mentality remains t,hen ,nobody can help indian women.so the women must first learn to respect themselves.. ]]>

En la experiencia que llevamos para visibilizar las temáticas inherentes en la obra de mujeres artistas del Caribe colombiano nos encontramos con una variedad de preguntas por resolver. Mujeres artistas pioneras que vienen desarrollando su obra desde los años 50's, que en algún etapa fueron reconocidas pero que una vez conseguido acceder a las esferas culturales no son contempladas en el arte contemporáneo. En segunda instancia las artistas tituladas, egresadas de las universidades como Maestras en Artes Plásticas pero que no han desarrollado su obra en el contexto inmediato porque si bien son muy pocos los circuitos artísticos, o bien por dedicarse al rol impuesto de la mujer en el hogar, o porque están cansadas de las negativas arbitrarias de curadores e historiadores locales que no entienden que hay temas inherentes al hecho de ser mujer en contextos tan patriarcales y discriminatorios como la Región Caribe... ]]>

In introducing my comments below, I will make mention of having once walked into my living room, to catch the following segment of a television sitcom: A group of teenagers - one Girl, two Boys, are located in a room with a fireplace. Girl chats animatedly with mumbling and awkward-seeming Boys, then turns away to sink down to her haunches, and busy herself with something in the fireplace. While in that position, the two suddenly-animated Boys have a quick whispered chat...complete with canned audience-laugher ratcheting up delightedly in background. Then suddenly, one Boy snatches a Fire Poker from its canister, lurches forward and proceeds to - surreptitiously, HOOK-AND-TUG THE STOOPING GIRL'S G-STRING PANTY UPWARDS FROM WHERE IT COULD BE SEEN AT THE TOP OF HER DROOPED JEANS. I don't know what happened next - well, actually I do, but only the immediate portion: the girl whips up and around, the Boy drops the poker and steps backward to stand in half-smirking, half-stunned mock-bemusement by Boy No... ]]>
