A ND Haksar, an Indian scholar, has written a revised version of the ancient Kama Sutra. Haksar’s version sees the ancient text updated from a sex guide to a lifestyle reference guide. The book hit the stands on February 3. The original Kama Sutra has only text and no graphics.

The Kama Sutra is not all about sex. Just a fraction of the Kama Sutra, roughly 1/24th, concerns copulation. Vatsyayana, the third BC author of the book, wrote it “while observing a celibate’s life in full meditation.”
