    A ground-breaking look at the sexual revolution that is beginning to sweep through urban India.

    The national bestseller
    India in love-marriage and sexuality in the 21st century is a ground-breaking look at the sexual revolution that is starting to sweep through urban India. Bestselling author Ira Trivedi traveled 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 habits, marriage and love everywhere in the country.

    The book explores the mating habits of young Indians on college campuses and in offices, examines the new 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 women-the 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.

    Praise for the book
    Genuinely illuminating, entertaining and revealing. - Indian express Ira has pulled off something of a coup-not only is India in love intricately researched and deeply insightful, its also an extremely entertaining, racy read. A real page-turner-HT brunch

    Trivedi charged into Indias bedroom and pulled the covers right off. No more secrets. - Mid-day

    Ira Trivedi cuts across social, communal, ethnic and gender divides, conducts a risky sting operation, explores the secret world of clandestine activities and cultivates the fringe elements of society. Trivedis cameos come alive with insight, empathy and a flair for the absurd. -Statesman

    Hear voices from across the map to know how potent Indias sexual revolution is. Outlook

    When it comes to love, yes love, words are seldom enough to capture the magic and excitement conjured up by the very thought of it. But Ira Trivedi writes so damned well that its impossible not to love this book. For me, its love at first sight. - Pritish Nandy

    The research and sheer scale of the subjects that Trivedi attempts to cover in a single edition are worthy of applause. - Business standard

    Just one chapter alone the dark side should be enough to underline why Trivedis work must be required reading for anyone interested in what is happening to our society today. - Hindu literary review

    Trivedis book, brave, engaging and thought-provoking, is written with a fluid ease Trivedi writes about sexuality without flinching. She describes things that are bound to offend some of her readers. A more timid writer would have toned this down in the interests of carrying her essentially liberal message to a wider audience. She prefers to tell it like it is. - Financial Times

    Ira Trivedi cuts across social, communal, ethnic and gender divides, conducts a risky sting operation, explores the secret world of clandestine activities and cultivates the fringe elements of society. Trivedis cameos come alive with insight, empathy and a flair for the absurd. - Statesman.

    Wake up call!!!

    Sex dues to its nature has always been a subject that we refrain from to talk or discuss in the public in major parts of the india and the lack of exchange/discussion on sex and sexuality has been our undoing However with the IT revolution came Sexual revolutaion in india, that shaped the way we live and talk and that is reflected in the way we carry ourselfs, i can concur to what Ira has to say as i am going through exactly the same phase, i am too confused by the sexual mindset that i carry...
