Summary
While ethnicity, class, and religion are influencing India's development, so too are pop culture and technology-- an uneasy fusion whose impact is most evident in the institution of marriage. Flock introduces three couples whose relationships illuminate these sweeping cultural shifts in dramatic ways. Though these middle-class couples are at different stages in their lives and come from diverse religious backgrounds, their stories build on one another to present a layered, nuanced, and fascinating mosaic of the universal challenges, possibilities, and promise of matrimony in its present state
