India's most profound view of love is that it be <em>defined by one's knowledge of the other</em>; the emphasis of Indian treatises on love, including the famously elevated -- and excruciatingly dumbed-down -- <em>Kama Sutra</em>, is about anchoring relationships upon an intimate awareness and respect of a partner's personality, desires, thought process, physicality and even the gentlest of nuance. As ever, in the Indian psyche, playfulness subsists hand-in-hand with sanctity, sensuousness with respect, earthly passion with ethereal divinity.
