India! I have pondered, written, cried, read, anguished, cursed, rejoiced and at times even celebrated; the country, the people, the practices and many things about it. Everyday life, ups and downs, people, endless prism of drama, color changing trees, color changing people, crushing cruelty, unimaginable poverty, vicious manipulation, ruthless economizing, unabashed selfishness, overwhelming altruism, shameless exploitation, unforgivable imbalance and so much more.

They are brought up to believe that sex is evil and flirting is bad. They are conditioned to protect themselves and save up for this one sacred individual. They are sternly discouraged and ill-treated for doing anything that is part of a natural human urge. Sex, for instance. A very small minority choose who they get married to, when they get married and if they want to get married at all.
