Abstract

Author examines the role of a hot spring in a subsistence economy of a village lying in the Karakorum-Himalaya. She explores the ways in which village life focus on the pond - religious, economic, and social - and weighs and harshly criticizes the effects of the government's artificial partitioning of the pool's waters for men, women, and elite visitors, which she views as a capitalistic version of the women's code of honor isolation. - (SLD)
