Christian and middle-class propriety helped to ensure that explicit descriptions of sex did not appear in the paper. Committed to a moderate African nationalism, they avoided material that might reinforce racist stereotypes of Africans as oversexed and immoral. Instead, they wrote about love and, at times, deployed it as a euphemism for sex.
Through regular columns, short stories, and letters, Bantu World writers debated what love could and should be.
For some, such love grew from Christian love. Over the past century, people living in a variety of colonial and postcolonial African contexts have deployed this distinction between true and false love Jahoda ; Setel ; in this volume, Mutongi.
This perspective aligned true love with a long-standing southern African view Junodvol. In debating what constituted true love, nearly all writers agreed that young people should be allowed to choose their partners.
It is. In a letter, Tina Kelobile wrote:. There are some men, educated men, and teachers at that, who encourage parents to compel their daughters to marry them. They do this not because they love the girls, but because they are cousins of the girls, and because they are jealous of the courtship which exists between their cousins and some boys or young men.
Imagine the shock a girl receives, when called to marry 53. Choral - Zwar Ist Solche Herzensstube - Johann Sebastian Bach - Weihnachts Oratorium • Christmas cousin the very man, she has no love for.

Therefore, parents Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 us, your daughters, a free hand in choosing our life partners, so that if things become dark, we may not blame you. By citing Scott, Kelobile displays her erudition and reveals how texts taught at mission schools informed African conceptions of love. She is even prepared to forego most Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T.
2000 Volume 1 her former pleasures and pursuits, if her lover tells her to do so. In many regards, the conception of heterosexual love advanced by Bantu World writers coincided with Victorian notions of true love that held sway among the middle classes in England and the United States from the midto late nineteenth century. Modeled after the Christian conception of selfknowledge through love of God, Victorian conjugal love entailed an intense spiritual bond between a man and a woman.
This bond, chosen and forged through courtship, provided the foundation for a monogamous union in Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 the husband and wife maintained a unique and future-oriented connection to one another. While Victorians recognized sex as a healthy and necessary part of marriage, they prioritized the spiritual bond between husband and wife. Since the middle of the nineteenth century, mission-educated Africans would have encountered this Victorian conception of conjugal love Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T.
2000 Volume 1 schooling and reading imported magazines, popular novels, and advice literature. By the s, some Bantu World writers would have been raised in families where parents or even grandparents had espoused this ideal. As refracted through mission Christianity, the Victorian ideal of true love marked, in many ways, a sharp departure from courtship and marriage practices that had prevailed in black southern African communities. Moreover, missionaries opposed polygynous, levirate, sororate, and forced marriages for desecrating the voluntary and singular connection between husband and wife.
Yet it is crucial to recognize how Christian and Victorian conceptions l o v es e xa n d t h e m o d e r n g i r l : 47 of love also resonated with, and likely reinforced, existing southern African ideals. Anthropological accounts suggest that, like Victorians, non-Christian Africans did not regard passion alone as a stable foundation for marriage. Writers usually referred to these young women as modern girls. It was this contingent independence from conventional female roles that people in Africa and elsewhere evoked during the s and s when they de48 : l Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T.
2000 Volume 1 n n m. But when black writers prefaced girl with modern, they signaled something humorous and unsettlingly progressive rather than decidedly pejorative Modern Girl One of the most common complaints about the modern girl was that she corrupted true love by having multiple sexual partners.
Although in many international contexts, contemporaries often associated the modern girl with lesbianism, Bantu World writers always discussed her sexuality in heterosexual terms. Petersen wrote, more men would marry. Like others who criticized the modern girl, Petersen deployed the word love as Inimă, Nu Mă Lăsa - Benone Sinulescu - Cîntece De Voie Bună euphemism for sex.
Sexually forthright behavior by young Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1writers argued, did not bode well for either the stability of future marriages or the African race. Bantu World writers also criticized modern girls for their captivating appearances. Richie Stephens - Richie Stephens all wear the latest, in photo[s] they captivate you to lose you[r] head and heart.
They have little or no personality in their faces, nor do they have good character, nor signs of ambition. Some criticized her obsession with love as a misguided aping of European ways. Schapera also deployed the Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 girl to navigate regional and international politics of race, love, and sex.
He wrote: The modern Kxatla [Kgatla] girl, with her short European skirts and irresponsible behaviour, often herself takes the initiative in love-making.
His hesitancy in using the term likely stemmed from a concern that some readers might criticize him for interpreting Tswana society through exogenous categories. But by providing a number of Setswana phrases used to describe the modern girl together with their literal translations, Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 illustrated the endogenous resonance of the category. Nowhere in Married Life did Schapera use these terms. He did, however, choose to commence Married Life with a modern girl story.
The book begins with an excerpt from an Englishlanguage letter that Schapera had received from Sofania Poonyane, a research assistant who was then working as a messenger in Johannesburg.
I did so because I discovered she was too considered [sic]. What Plastic World - DJ Amir - Vol. 7 Da Bitch you think of that? And we should always travel by taxi instead of by tram or bus at 5d. In this case of courtship, however, he asked his readers to Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 with young men. More so than the other South African anthropologists, Schapera sought to demonstrate that African intimate relations were like those among whites and in the West.
At the same time, Schapera oJered the most explicit discussions of sex. These were two sides of the same coin. Conclusion Analysis of anthropological studies and Bantu World writings from the s reveals how international circuits of media and knowledge combined with contentious politics of race and diJerence to shape public discussions of 52 : l y n n m.
South African racial politics shaped how Schapera, Hunter, Hellmann, and Krige engaged these disciplinary concerns and how their research was received. By deploying the concept of culture contact to demonstrate that southern Africa was becoming a single society, they challenged the logic of racial segregation. Yet in a context where intimacy was a deeply racialized and politicized issue, even liberal allies had diIculty tolerating their detailed studies of sex.
This chapter speaks to the contemporary concerns raised elsewhere in this volume by revealing the long history of debates over love in Africa. South African anthropologists documented that by the early s, labor migrancy, urbanization, and mission Christianity had substantially transformed intimate relations. In subsequent decades, discussions of intimacy in African popular newspapers and magazines shifted away from such explicit Christian moralizing.
Both of these, by the s at least, were widely accepted ideals among mission-educated Christians. In so doing, they interpreted contemporary gender politics through the lens of a middle-class African nationalism. By adopting a nationalist perspective that blamed exogenous inspirations, they obscured how heterosexual relations in s South Africa were the historical entanglement of Thomas older and newer, regional and Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T.
2000 Volume 1 ideals of love and sex. Moreover, he situated the African modern girl as the product of Christianity and colonialism. The three perspectives that dominated these interwar discussions Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 black South African intimacy—anthropology, Christianity, and African nationalism—are ones that have held considerable sway within African studies.
This convergence helps explains why love has been a relatively neglected topic. The epistemological foundations of anthropology have encouraged the study of sex, not aJect.
While mission Christianity and schooling fostered discussion of true love, it did so in a moralizing and universalizing way that has made it diIcult to consider how the entanglement of various ideals and conceptions have shaped love in colonial and postcolonial Africa.
Perhaps these ideological Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 make it a little less surprising that Absolom Vilakazi grew from being a precocious critic of the 54 : l y n n m.

2000 Volume 1 Africans. Film may have been a relatively new medium, but the didactic uses to which people put it were not. Again and again I was told by the people whom I interviewed that one reason, among many, for going to the movies was to learn. And one of the things they sought to learn about was how to make love within the context of the multigenerational patriarchal families in which most of them lived. Of the total Zanzibari population of , inonly 15, had attended schools where they might have become literate in Kiswahili written in Roman script, and Fields Of The Nephilim - Revelations (VHS) than 3, of these were women.
As late asthere were only 93 women enrolled in the Government Secondary School for Girls, where women were given instruction in English and literature, among Love Generation - Various - Clubmix 2006 subjects.
Some couples in such marriages grew to appreciate each other deeply over time. Yet the Swahili have historically had one of the highest divorce rates in the world. Second and subsequent marriages, however, were often rooted in romances initiated by the couple themselves. The midcentury rise of the romantic couple as a key cinematic trope spoke to these romantic desires, and men, women, and couples who went to the show found their own yearnings validated.
On screen and oJ, their romance was larger than life. Screen life and real life merged in the public eye. Thomas The combination of their superb skill Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T.
2000 Volume 1 screen and their public lives and love made them household names not only in Zanzibar, but across the globe. What is certain is that the characters of Raj and Rita spoke to deep human yearnings that transcended political, geographic, and linguistic divides. During the early years of their devoted marriage, the indulgent couple escapes from the watchful eye of the extended family for a romantic weekend together on a remote island, where Leela is abducted by a villain.
Told from the perspective of Raj, Awara Vagabond explores the issues of social legitimacy and class privilege from the vantage point of the poor. Leela struggles valiantly for years, trying to feed her son, send him to school, and raise him to be an upright man who can rise above the slums in which he was born. EJort, education, and moral strength, she tells her son, are the keys to success.
Ultimately, m a k i n g l o v e i n t h e i n d i a n o c e a n : 61 however, ill health and poverty conspire against her, and Raj loses his place at school because she cannot keep up with Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 school fees.

Schooled in the arts of petty crime, Raj graduates to become an important player in an underworld Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1. Yet a third major plotline in Awara revolves around the developing romance between poor, illegitimate, but totally lovable Raj and his wealthy and spoilt childhood sweetheart Rita, with whom he is reunited after twelve years when he tries to snatch her purse and steal her car.
Despite his objections, Raj and Rita engage in a long and languid romance, and publicly pronounce their eternal love. Their love is socially aIrmed after Rita, who has also been studying law, defends Raj in court against charges brought by her guardian, and in the process reveals that Raj is really the son of prominence, to whom fate has dealt a nasty hand.
Love was, in the end, a very shaky foundation on which to build a family. Others, however, used Raghunath to illustrate that wealth and social power did not necessarily confer moral strength, and to say that any marriage could end in tragedy if the 62 : l a u r a fa i r f ig u r e 2.
Awara was popular, in part, because its characters struggled with the tension between romantic love Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 family honor, a tension that resonated with Zanzibari audiences.
Photo source: Awara. Raghunath failed to stand by the woman he claimed to love. Still others used the plot of Awara to suggest that fundamental social change, such as moving from arranged marriage to love marriage, takes time.
While Raghunath failed to stand up to his family and community, his children refused to relent to patriarchal pressure, and in the end their romance and love steals the show. Like academics, Zanzibaris examined texts for evidence, but drew on that evidence to support their own points of view. Films like Awara were widely popular because they provided men Love For Sale - George Benson - Live (The Early Years) women in the audience with characters with whom they could identify and relate, as well as others they could hate.
While Swahili culture is African at its core, Swahilis have spent centuries selectively appropriating elements of the religious, artistic, and culinary cultures of others throughout the Indian Ocean.
Beginning in the nineteenth century, Zanzibar and the Swahili coast witnessed the growing settlement of men, and eventually women too, from Arabia and South Asia who chose to make East Africa their permanent home. In Bring Back The Wiggle - Hardly Subtle - Movin Marlena and private spaces, wherever people came together, they discussed, critiqued, debated, imagined, and interacted with the issues that were presented on screen.
But my sister and her friends were huge fans. One of them might identify with this character, another with that, and they would argue back and forth about diJerent scenes and the lessons they conveyed. This group was not alone. Characters, male as well as female, who openly disregarded cultural norms or mimicked the West brought trouble to themselves and their families. Youth were not obliged to rebel entirely or disassociate themselves from their families. In Indian movies, youth disobeyed, but within limits, and due to their pressure, patriarchs like Raghunath became kinder and gentler over time.

Thomas ; Vasudevan They could make you feel the pain that they felt right down to your core. You empathized with their struggles and hardships, and experienced their pain from their perspective. This problem of women being abandoned by their husbands, for whatever reason, was a common problem here in Zanzibar as well.
She portrayed that pain and those problems in a way that really hit home. I saw it more than ten times. Raj Kapoor and Nargis were outstanding!
The plot shows how a man [Raghunath] can abandon his wife [Leela], even though he loves her very much, because of family pressure. Marriage, Sex, and Romance: Between the Reel and Real Life Casual visitors to Zanzibar are often struck by the visual presence of women covered in the black buibui, or hijab, and presume that this is an indication of sexual repression and gender oppression within the isles.
Such facile conclusions belie a much more complicated reality Fair In Zanzibar, and Swahili culture more generally, modesty in dress and appearance is upheld as a virtue, for men and women alike, but this does not mean that sexuality is considered a sin.

Poets have a long and revered history amongst the Swahili. Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 poets have used very complicated forms of rhyme and meter to praise the lord, condemn their political rivals, issue edicts on moral reform, instruct youth, give thanks, and address a host of other topics both worldly and divine Jahadhmy ; m a k i n g l o v e i n t h e i n d i a n o c e a n : 69 Abdulaziz ; Noor Sharif ; Knappert Living Up To Life - The Werner-Rosengren Swedish Jazz Quartet - Bombastica!

In the s, male taarab poets and performers in Zanzibar increasingly began to move away from religious, social, and political commentary, and to lay increasing emphasis on romantic love and Last Orders - The Oppressed - 1981/4 - Fatal Blow in their work.
Cinemas and the Consummation of Love In the s and s, cinemas were Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 of the few public places where men and women along the Swahili coast could gather and enjoy an evening of respectable leisure together. Until fairly recently, it Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 rare for a young couple to have a home that was separate from the rest of a joint or extended family. In such cases, couples rarely had time or space, outside of their bedroom, to talk or be alone.
It gave us things to talk about, things to share, and most importantly it gave us time alone. Issa, a Swahili cabdriver in Dar es Salaam, also recalled the important place of cinemas as physical and imaginary spaces in his early married life.
It was the only time we really got to be alone. In the company of their families, young people who met at the show rarely engaged each other in direct conversation. Another woman who used to go to the cinema regularly with her sisters and cousins confessed that she regularly met her boyfriend at the cinema. Heavens no! We were much too shy for this. Besides, if you ever did something like that you could be certain some auntie or cousin would see you and word would reach home before you did, and would you ever be in trouble then!
It would be a long, long time before you were allowed to go to the cinema again. True love, like that in the Hindi melodramas, was an emotive, not a physical, love. Another woman who partook in similar rendezvous explained: You would sit here, and your lover would sit in front of you 6—8 rows, on the side.
We would glance at each other, and make love with our eyes before the show started and during intermission. It was all so romantic! Simply seeing each other gave you such a thrill! And the entire time you and your lover were The Prisoner - The Clash - Londons Burning Demos & Outtakes 1976 - 79 the movie you were experiencing together the love you saw on screen.
The actors and actresses knew how to love each other, really love each other. They too never sat next to each Midnight In Ethiopia - Various - Jamaica and never even touched.
Yet as she remembered this young man, she said: My heart still races when I recall our aJair. We were so in love. It was like this movie playing now, Veer Zara, about a young couple who cannot marry because of the partition [of India and Pakistan]. Their love was true. It was divine. Politics separated us as well, but who knows, maybe someday we can be together again too.
Cinema seating was assigned, and occasionally a young couple would be so bold as to purchase their tickets ahead of time, thus assuring adjacent seats, even if each came in on his or her own.
One trick was for a young man to make an advanced booking for himself, his girlfriend, and her friends. They could arrive separately, but when she approached the window to get the tickets for her group, the ticket agent, well aware of the plan, could let her know Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T.
2000 Volume 1 seat she needed to take in order to sit next to her man. For daring young couples, a large part of the thrill of such a romance was the adventure of sneaking out together in public and risking being, but certainly hoping never to be, caught. Older, previously married lovers took more advantage of the time oJered by the cinema than its space to advance their romance to a new level. Hindi movies are usually at least three hours in length, leaving ample opportunity for a romantic tryst.
Lovers might feign they were going to the show and simply go someplace more intimate instead. The song, or at least the stories surrounding it, suggests that purdah and propriety were not necessarily synonymous.
The cover of a buibui was a useful disguise for women attempting such feats. Such plans had the potential to go awry, however, as in the case of one infamous married man in Malindi, who regularly used the cover of three-hour Indian movies to meet his lover. Before the entire crowd in the theater, he was outed by his wife.
Twenty years later his tale continued to generate exuberant laughs. Few real-life heroes or heroines had the hutzpah of Rita and Raj. Forging a relationship across the chasms of class and communal divides, committing to each other despite patriarchal opposition, defending each other in the face of immense social pressure, this was something that few Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T.
2000 Volume 1 mortals could manage. Many of the women and men with whom I spoke lamented their early married life, but stated rather matter-of-factly that in those days before the s or s it was elders who chose your spouse, not you.
If he came from a wealthy and respected family, all the better, and missing teeth, warts, gray hair, and fat bellies were to be overlooked in favor of the improved status he would bring to you, your children, and, by extension, your entire family. He was arrogant, unattractive and patronizing, and treated me like I was nothing other than a slave. After some time, and the birth of a child, each made arrangements for a divorce.
But I cannot help it, I am a romantic, and I live for that feeling. Yasmin detests Raza. Not only is he old enough to be her grandfather, his teeth are stained and his breath reeks from the pipe he constantly has in his mouth.
Going out to the cinema provides one of the few opportunities they share for mutual enjoyment. These themes also emerged with surprising frequency during interviews on the history of cinema. When I asked about the place of cinemas in urban social life or about what were some of the m a k i n g l o v e i n t h e i n d i a n o c e a n : 77 best movies of all time and why, I Fox-Helden - Herzen Brennen told by many elders of their own revolutionary struggles to marry for love, rather than marrying the partner their parents had arranged for them to marry.
The novel is about nationalism and the struggles of young men, like Denge, to overthrow the British. I use Yasmin to locate the novel in Zanzibar, and describe her life because I wanted to describe how life was in Zanzibar at this time. Young people were In All Respects - Akshin Alizadeh - Street Bangerz Volume 8 to respect the elders, and girls their husbands, and never to question.
In the s there were many cases of old men like Raza Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T. 2000 Volume 1 young girls like Yasmin. The beginning of the novel is intended to describe how her life was like, how circumscribed it was, and as the novel unfolds she too opens up and is exposed to many things she never knew existed before.
I just wanted to describe how life was, not necessarily to link it with a duel colonialism. As a feminist, it could not be more obvious to me that this novel linked personal freedom and national independence.
The point is that people take the narratives they have available and rework them to give them meanings in the context of their own lives. There is a story and diJerent issues inside, but it is up to you to interpret them, to think about them and decide what the meaning of the story is for you.
Each person Hava Nagila - Gasolines - Tanger Hotel with their own interests and takes from it what is meaningful to them.
The s were a watershed decade for both lovers and nationalists on the African continent. It was during this decade that the struggles of peasants and wage laborers, women and men, ex-soldiers and students, frustrated entrepreneurs and heady intellectuals, coalesced and gave rise to the nationalist movements that swept the continent toward independence.
While no nationalist I know of ever proclaimed the end of patriarchal control of youth and marriage to be among their goals, the growth of nationalist movements fueled the devel78 : l a u r a fa i r opment of romantic love in several important ways.
Most important, both nationalism and romantic love are based on fantasies, often very elaborate fantasies, of what one wants but does not have. The s were a decade in which nearly everyone on the continent was inspired to dream of liberation. While nationalists from the Cape to Cairo and Cameroon took to the stage to rally support for national independence and freedom from colonialism, youth applied these vocabularies to more immediate personal concerns.
But in the s, the elderly men and women with whom I spoke were still quite young, and their dreams were Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T.
2000 Volume 1 alive. Such is the folly of youth, I was told. But many also commented on the importance of the larger changes taking place all around them for inspiring them to dream of diJerent emotive and romantic lives. If nationalists could talk of overthrowing political economies based on colonialism, then why not talk of overturning patriarchal control of marriage as well?
From Argentina and Ecuador to India and Il Faut Savoir - Aznavour* - Palais Des Congres 1994, the romantic couple emerged as an emblem for imaginary nations struggling to overcome deep historic divisions of class, race, language, region, and religion.
By the s and s, however, love marriages—such as the one enjoyed by this couple on their wedding day—were increasingly common. Photo by Dumazile - Various - M.E.L.T.
2000 Volume 1 Fair. Cinema certainly was not the only factor that contributed to the growing prevalence of these public deliberations, but it was an important one. In bedrooms, on the streets, and in shops, tearooms, and buses, thousands of people talked and debated these texts each week. I know several sweet, quite elderly couples where the husbands still get a thrill out of bringing a special treat home for their wives, the love of their lives.
Most of these elderly couples dated regularly at the show during their early (Poor Old) Mr. Jensen - The Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus - The Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orch lives, and for them the romance lives 80 : l a u r a fa i r on.
Others lamented that although they dared to love across class or communal lines, they never managed to consummate their romance like Rita and Raj. Still others said that while they were not inspired to choose their own loves, the narratives from Hindi melodramas nonetheless did become the soundtracks for collective discussions during their generation about the rights of young people to choose their own partners.
