While the Gods Were Sleeping

A Journey Through Love and Rebellion in Nepal

(1)
Love and marriage brought American anthropologist Elizabeth Enslin to a world she never planned to make her own: a life among Brahman in-laws in a remote village in the plains of Nepal. As she faced the challenges of married life, birth, and childrearing in a foreign culture, she discovered as much about human resilience, and the capacity for courage, as she did about herself.
While the Gods Were Sleeping: A Journey Through Love and Rebellion in Nepal tells a compelling story of a woman transformed in intimate and unexpected ways. Set against the backdrop of increasing political turmoil in Nepal, Enslin's story takes us deep into the lives of local women as they claim their rightful place in society—and make their voices heard.

The anthropologist Elizabeth Enslin was focusing on African cultures when she meets her future husband und therefore shifts her attention to Nepal. In his home village she fully immerses in the old and traditional culture which provides her with deep insight in a very new way of living. Especially the role of women and the caste system have a lot of astonishing aspects to offer which sometimes led her to seriously question her decision for living there. Apart from some funny, astonishing and sometimes appalling anecdotes, what I really appreciated about the book was the personal experience and way Elizabeth Enslin shares them with the readers. Each piece of the puzzle adds to forming a whole picture of a very different culture which still works according to its own, old traditions and habits which sometimes seem to be completely out of space. Additionally, it was very informative and to learn about the structures and especially about the language, this was the most interesting part for study for me. Above all, the slow progress of women towards independence and more rights and the struggle connected with this were very illustrating for readers who happen to live in a society were equal rights and treatment are not questioned anymore. All in all, a very recommendable read.
