Love vs Caste
Love is a funny thing, as you cannot control who you are falling for, or when it happens. Which is why it is hard to consider things such as cast, or race. However, when you come from a rich culture, it is not easy to cut off ties, as you are backed by a huge family and traditions that have been passed on to the next for generations. So what can you do when you find yourself in love with someone that comes from a different cast? Do you swallow the bitter pill and try to bury your feeling, or do you take the plunge and bet all that you have on the relationship?
