Desi Modern Love

Desi Modern Love

An Anthology of True Stories

Curated by Ranjani Rao and Nandini Patwardhan

While love is an emotion that is universally experienced, it is colored and nuanced by cultural context and setting. Inspired by the Modern Love column in the New York Times, this collection explores love as offered, received, and felt in the present time and within the Indian ethos.

Within this framework, there is a great deal of variation. The authors are from India, the United States, and Singapore. Accounts are about love in arranged marriage (of course!), marriage the second time around, a not-quite-romance in college. Along the way, you will encounter a wife who unfriends her husband on Facebook and an adoptive mother who worries about the well-being of the birth mother on Mothers Day.

Download this anthology, grab a cup of coffee and a favorite cookie, and get transported into a deep exploration of love and acceptance.
