Love and Honour? Marriage for Peace, exposes the ongoing phenomenon of Romeo and Juliet style romance tragedy; families killing their own and other families’ daughters, sons, sisters and brothers in the name of family ‘honour”. Focused on Northern India and Nepal, the stories illustrate that despite India adopting a democratic constitution in 1950, the public murder of forbidden lovers continues. Media reports of this phenomenon did not surface until 1993, but have increased dramatically since then. Love and Honour? Marriage for Peace has been written to seek a path from murder to reconciliation, to acceptance and ultimately to marriage for peace.
