My data collection method has been primarily participant observation in the South India state, Karnataka. The research site is a small village approximately 200 miles northwest of the state capitol, Bangalore. The village, which I call Totagadde (a pseudonym), is a multi-caste village with a population of eight hundred to a thousand. Havik Brahmins comprise the social, economic, political, and religious elite in the village.

Lilith can be seen as the image of evil, of prohibited, incestuous, aggressive, destructive and oedipal wishes. Lilith's insistance on control threatened patriarchy. Eve also transgressed God's boundaries when she persuaded Adam to eat the apple of knowledge, with the result that God expelled both Adam and Eve from Eden. Perhaps in patriarchy a woman's assertiveness without male sanction results in her becoming an object of discrimination.
