Example text

The process of identity formation starts in infancy and according to Erikson passes through several critical stages, from childhood, to adolescence, and into adulthood (Erikson 1963). To acquire an appropriate identity which asserts one’s strengths, which is located in reality, which separates the individual from others and is thereby kept distinct from those of others, which reflects one’s true inner being and which leads to the fulfilment or the realization of one’s potential is by no means easy.

Her private persona remains submerged within these changing and conflicting identities. From birth to death she does not possess an identity of her own. However, it is important to stress that several enlightened parents look upon the birth of a girl as ‘a gift of the gods’ and see it as their sacred duty, which is part of Hindu dharma, to have their daughter(s) handsomely and ‘happily’ married. Despite the seemingly pitiful nature of the daughter-in-law’s position in her husband’s family home, there are compensatory psychological and power-related dramas that are played out in Indian families.

It has been argued that families in western countries, particularly in the USA, have been unable to develop positive ways of adjusting to these rapid changes, and it is possible that the rapid speed of change may in itself be a major factor of stress in families. Family life in eastern cultures In sharp contrast to western society, Indian society, not unlike other eastern societies, is family-based and community-centred (Zaehner 1966a; Mandelbaum 1972; Lannoy 1975; Kakar 1981; Koller 1982; Lipner 1994; Flood 1996; Laungani 1997c, 1999d, 2001a; Klostermaier 1998; Sharma 2000).
