    MOBI Maitreyi MOBI È · history books.co maitreyi download, Maitreyi eBook35 starsIt's tough to rate a book like this Initially upon finishing it I rated it uite highly but after I've had time to think about the content I felt much less compelled to do soBengal Nights was written by a European man in India Calcutta in the 1930s so I knew I was going to be shaking my head a lot I expected racism exotification cultural ignorance and superiority paternalism and simplification of the other and I got all those Once I saw that it was civilized people who were simple innocent and clear These Indians whom I loved so much that I wanted to become one of them all nurtured in the recesses of their beings a whole impenetrable history and mythology How deep complex and unintelligible they seemed to me Even so this is an interesting book well writt

    MOBI Maitreyi MOBI È · history books.co maitreyi download, Maitreyi eBookI love it and I hate it at the same time if that is at all possible I just finished reading it for the second time and I don't really remember anything like this after reading it the first time but it hit something inside me wherever and whatever that is and a very weird combination of feelings surfaced I suppose Eliade succeeded in making the reader or at least me feel as close as possible to what he must have felt back then if not towards Maitreyi at least towards the book itself Being able to penetrate to its core this obviously touching and disturbing at the same time story I find myself judging him a lot for his stupid actions and his lack of judgment but I do not know how different would I have reacted if it all happened to me I feel pitty for the human race for all the stupidity that it bears with so much pride and arrogance for the immense amount
