Indian Women, Love, Dating, And Marriage

This is episode four of a new Indian podcast series created by journalist Ayesha Aleem (Ilm means knowledge in Arabic). In it, she explores the lives of women through interviews with people who exemplify the different facets of issues such as work, motherhood and safety. 

In this episode, Aleem looks at love, and while all three interviewees are English-speaking, educated, modern and liberal Indian women, their experiences are, as they say in South East Asia, same-same but different. Through these conversations, we hear about the pressures from society, how attitudes of parents towards settling down, or dating and getting to know someone, differ. We hear from a woman who is Muslim, we hear from one who has loved and lost, and we hear from one about all the various dating apps and sites she's on to maximize her chances of finding love. Hope, it seems, springs eternal and it's so very interesting to hear how they all essentially would like the same thing – an equal partner, shared interests – and how they believe it will all play out. 

If you're interested in how other cultures (specifically in India) view marriage and love, this is a great entry into that world. It's a warm, engaging, and thought-provoking podcast.
