question one : 1. Discuss the development of the model of the ideal Hindu wife from the early Vedas to the Upanishads and how it had an impact on women’s lives.Many reformers from within and outside of the Hindu tradition have called for changes in the status of women, yet the traditional ideals of womanhood remain firmly entrenched in Indian society. To what extent is it possible and/or legitimate to tamper with social-religious practices and norms that date back thousands of years?

question 2 :B. In what ways can persons of another religious commitment benefit from the study of Hindu spirituality?
