Abstract [en]

Multiple identities of motherhood constituted the core of the discourse surrounding the controversial Hindu Code Bill during 1941-56. In the effort to arrive at a social consensus on family laws for the majority Hindu community in modern India, the discourse in public and legislative spheres brought out the fractured social morality on motherhood in Indian society. The formative phase of family law reforms also played an important role in the social construction of the identity of motherhood. - See more at: http://www.epw.in/journal/2007/43/special-articles/images-motherhood-hindu-code-bill-discourse.html#sthash.zh0mVksK.dpuf
