India-A Love Story
In the story the young and travaled Indian executive from a cast of merchant Raj, divided between Western and Eastern values, and Maya, a modern, studied and working Indian girl from the same caste who has always believed that she will choose her own husband.
Raj is in love with Duda, a modern and independent Brazillian girl who suffers with prejudice of Raj's family. Maya is in love with Bahuan, an impetuous and well educated Indian dalit whose lack of caste turns him into a social pariah. Bahuan can not forget the humiliation he lived in his childhood for being considered impure for Hindu society. Bound by their tradition, Raj and Maya are forced to deny these loves, considered forbidden.
Hence Raj and Maya stories collide: their families negotiate their marriage and they are forced to leave their impossible loves behind.
