Indra, regarded here as the “highest god among the gods” lusts after a child, who he later stalks and deceives (19). Yet, the even more disturbing part of this tale exists in the relationship between Gautama and Ahalya, husband and wife.

She also informs him that he would be able to marry Draupadi as well, if he switched sides to the Pandavas.

Seth uses Malati as a kind of foreshadow of the future of Indian attitudes toward relationships and marriage. Lata, when she sees her sister Savita and her brother-in-law Pran fighting for life in the hospital and in such a crisis her family stood behind them, she then and there decides that she would marry Haresh Khanna.

Kala Krishnadas got attracted to the gypsies. Sri Caitanya renounced him as he is no longer his responsibility. However, Sri Caitanya’s followers did not reject him.

Gender discrimination arises as Thai Buddhists tend to believe in law of karma without question rather than in the Buddha Bhava of all beings. Gender discrimination can be seen in many ways through Thai Buddhism, such as preventing women from being ordained. However, efforts put in by women, such as the Bhikkhuni movement, is beginning to make a difference to woman’s role in Thai Buddhism by reducing such gender discrimination. The Bhikkhuni movement is used as a tool to leverage women in society, firstly granting religious acceptance, and consequently greater gender recognition in Thai society. With more and more women striving for gender equality, I believe that gender discrimination in Thai Buddhism can eventually be overcome and Thailand would be a better place to be
