Want to write but don’t know where to get started? Here are some ideas to get you started!

  1. Why is interfaith/intercaste love still such a big deal for Indian parents?
  2. Why are love marriages in India still scorned upon?
  3. Why are Indian parents still choosing partners for their ‘adult’ children?
  4. “It’s the right time to get ‘settled’, especially if you’re a girl”. Why are parents pressuring young adults to ‘get married’ in the first place?
  5. Has decriminalising 377 really changed the mentality? Why is same-sex love in India still a societal taboo?
  6. Maybe you want a long- term relationship but ‘swiping right’ is the norm.
  7. Maybe you just want to ‘swipe right’ but ‘long-term’ is the culture.
