On fidelity (in translations?), Mani says:
Your partner is faithful to you, it is conventional, she is obedient, you can’t complain. Does she love you? What if she had the freedom to betray and nothing to lose? Your partner is unfaithful. Does she pity you, or think you so stupid you don’t know it? Her attention is elsewhere when you speak. Can you be with someone who is not with you?
Love is problematic when faithless.
Fidelity is a drag when loveless.
Love as translation.
After all these years my love, you dare tell me that you merely did what I said?
But the whole thing here. Also her essay, 'Repetitiveness in Gita Translation'.
And while I'm linking to her recent work, more Mani Rao, from the latest issue of Almost Island [you should check the whole issue out].
