I am truly appauld at this custom. Wether it was or is practiced. I am very religious and quite frankly can not fathom how disgusting this is. Shame on those priest and land lords that would pervert these young girls lives. Shame should especially be brought to the parents of these girls. Im sure they scarred these girls emotionally and physically in a way that nothing can repair. This is rape no matter what a great tradition these people think it is . It is vulgur and not at all "rightoues". I have been called a rightoues woman and have come to fully meet the understanding of this word. It dictates morally correct values and decisions, upright attitude and knowledge, and a virtuous godly person.

All that has been mentioned in this article is true but devadasi system doesn't exsist any more. It has been abolished even before Independence.

well said that these devdasis have a great contribution in the development of dance and music and they deserve their credit for that...and very true that they were among the most respected sections of the society when india was under the control of vast chola kingdom and other prosperous kingdoms...but it is equally true that most, if not all, of these devdasis had to satisfy the physical desires of high profile priests and elites of the society,and this could possibly be one of the reasons of their elite status in the society, because at that times the social system was pratically dominated by the priesthood and wealthy elites...the present scenario can therefore be viewed as a much deterriorated form of the original malpractice...

The article lacks depth. Some of the temple dances were women with great learnig.Some excelled in music and some in dances. Some have become nations icons. One cannot say that they came form only poorer sections or dalits. Vasathasena in the great sanskrit drame Mrichhakatim, Maduvani in Kanyasulam (Telugu) drama tell us about thier morlas and ethics which are supposed be better than so called cultured people. They should respected and never looked down upon.

It's Shocking, very nerve wrecking, I was brought up in a Christian family, and did not know such a thing existed in my Country. Sad,very sad, the Government of India must open its eyes, towards this system, and save all the innocent girls from these so called priests, landlords, etc. They are men disgusting even to think of.

It seems completely unbelievable that such customs are still continued in todays society. One would think such archaic practices had ended decades ago. Religeon is using this as an excuse to make money and destroy lives in the process

This is a deplorable system and legacy of fake religious beliefs. It gives a licence to celibate priests, landlords and goons around temple to wash their dirty linen. It is a more inhuman conversion.Congress who holds franchise for upliftment of poor and minority has done little to mitigate the problem.

this is a disgusting custom. no matter if they had started off as priestesses, the fact is that they went in, with their parents full knowledge of the fact that this was going to happen. how can you possibly justify this by saying that they did sensuous dancers? thats like saying we should let criminals go when they get rid of somebody that many people dislike. nothing will ever justify something as horrendous as this. it is people who think like this that actually allow the continuation of such practices even after they have been outlawed.
