All the love stories we love are about surmounting mountains and staying in love despite them, living or dying in full knowledge of the consequences. The master templates have been provided by stories like Romeo and Juliet and in contemporary times, Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and Malamud’s The Assistant sum up exactly what the Capulets and Montagues have morphed into now. The privileged rich and the ambitious upstarts. Jews and Gentiles. To name a few colliding worlds. For those being hunted for love or murdered for honour in subterranean India, there are gotras and castes and angry Khap Gods to answer to.
