The Kama Sashtra or Kama Sutra

In September of 2008 I walked into a room and with an elderly gentlemen. The person had gathered my intrigue as it would anyone. He had shown me objects he had dating as far back as 1800 B.C. The person had also spoke with the grandson of the President of India with me sitting in the room on speaker phone. Things people just don't have. The person walked into the other room. When he returned he had something in his hand that was wrapped in bubble wrap with leather bounds surrounding it. He sat it on the table and asked me to unwrap the packing. When I opened the packaging what I saw was one of the most sought after documents in history. The man possessed something known as the Kama Sutra.  Widely distorted by popular society the Kama Sutra  is a virtuous Hindu document that provides people with a manual to life, love and family. To people of Hindu belief it is a transcript giving to couples as a right of passage at the time of marriage. The most respected estimates place the age of the document itself as 2,186 years old.  The item in it's entirety was numerous tablets. On one side there was text, on the other side there was illustration woven in gold.  The significance of the document is almost unmeasurable. The majority of historians would site the document as one of the 10 most significant writings in the history of the world. To over 1,000,000,000 people marriage isn't considered official unless the receive a copy of the document. The nature of the element would not being in the country be on par if you saw on the news someone had taken The United States Constitution effectively. It is also considered an extreme breach of what is know as National Treasure Law. Meaning if the location of it was known the Government of that country can and will demand seizure of that document so knowing the location is something of extreme trust. There are only 4 people that have seen it in the last 100 years and a billion that feel it's misplacement constitutes a non sanctioned marriage. From a historical perspective there isn't much of a way to measure being able to see such a document. I am going to show it to you. It was actually located in a Harvard Professors Penthouse Condo. I think I told you a true story about that person once. What a world right? Here are the photo's of the actual Kama Sutra.
