Consequently, this pursuit of stability for their children tends to make parents hyper-invested in those two means.

Definition of 'arrange'
Think: Match. Within that context, there is scope for romanticism and hijinx. And as long as the storytelling is authentic and sensitive without exotifying or vilifying a tradition without fully understanding it, I think good stories can come out of it. Do you feel the need to address consent explicitly in your novels about arranged marriages, and how so?
Sonali Dev : I feel the need to address consent explicitly in all my novels irrespective of whether or not they have anything to do with arranged marriages. Every sex scene in every one of my novels has overt consent, a discussion integrated into the scene where the hero explicitly asks permission and the heroine explicitly and consciously makes the choice to have, and to enjoy, sex.

Nisha Sharma : Everything. Right now, there are not enough romances featuring South Asians. That we have many facets and dynamics within the South Asian community and readers who are starving for representation within the pages of books. I want to see as many cultural traditions explored from every possible angle. Basically the answer would be the same as if you were talking to any other person from a different cultural background. Why should we have a focus, or a limit, or a type? Each character should be able to be who they are without being measured for Indianness, because down that path lies Apu [of The Simpsons ] and the land of stereotypes on one hand and Indian Americans dictating to one another what kind of Indian Americans are most authentically authentic.
Let voices and authors bring their experiences with them, as opposed to trying to retrofit their experiences into boxes of expectations. Think, Dancing With The Stars but with a star paired up with a chef instead of a pro dancer.
