    India in Love: Marriage and Sexuality in the 21st Centuryis a ground-breaking look at the sexual revolution that is beginning to sweep through urban India. Bestselling author Ira Trivedi travelled from Shillong in the northeast to Chennai in the south, Konark in the east to Mumbai in the west, and over a dozen other cities and towns, in order to gain unprecedented insights into changing sexual mores, marriage and love in the 21st century.

    The book explores the mating habits of young Indians on college campuses and in offices; examines the changing face of Indian pornography and prostitution, probes Indias gay revolution; and delves into history, economics and sociology to try and understand how the nation that gave the world the Kamasutra could have become a closed, repressed society with a shockingly high incidence of rape and violence against womenthe dark underside to the greater sexual freedom that men and women in our cities have begun to enjoy today.

    Trivedi goes deep into one of the most enduring institutions of Indian society-marriage and investigates how it is faring in modern times. She interviews marriage brokers, astrologers, lawyers, relationship counsellors, love commandos, parents and nervous young brides and grooms, amongst others, to present a nuanced picture of the state of marriage in the country. She discovers that love marriages are skyrocketing and even the age-old arranged marriage is undergoing a transformation. Also on the rise are divorces, extra-marital affairs, open marriages, live-in relationships and the like.

    Supporting her eye-opening reportage with hundreds of interviews, detailed research, authoritative published surveys and discussions with experts on various aspects of sexuality and marriage, Trivedi has written a book that is often startling, sometimes controversial, but is always entertaining and original. India in Lovewill change the way urban Indians view themselves and one another.

    I fell in LOVE with India in Love

    This is a fantastic book and is a MUST READ by everyone out there. I am so glad that I picked it up. Its not only entertaining, and highly readable, but also full of facts and information. Its a one of a kind book, and Trivedi has really written a master-piece.

    I urge everyone in India to read this book to look at the disturbing reality. Trivedi travels from brothels, to sex clinics to swingers parties to show us what the new India is all about.

    Interesting n Informative though cognizant

    India in Love is a book that floats from mythology to confused coeval notions of love.Young Indians might want to read the book to get an idea of what other people their age are thinking about. Trivedi divides the book into two parts — sexuality and marriage. Putting sex before relationships is a smart move to hold the reader's attention though most of this stuff, that the average Indian is already aware of.
