Love and Marriage in Mumbai

1 July 2018

Elizabeth Flock

This book follows three couples living in Mumbai whose dynamics illustrate how traditional values sometimes clash with the influence of Western culture. Veer and Maya are a forward-thinking professional couple whose union is tested by Maya’s desire for independence; Ashok and Parvati’s arranged marriage blossoms into true love; and Shahzad and Sabeena are desperate for a child. Journalist Elizabeth Flock spent close to a decade documenting these couples’ marriages and the result is a nuanced account of the challenges, possibilities and promises of matrimony in contemporary India.
