A Catholic Marries a Hindu
About the Book
Two people -- Paul, an American, and Latika, an Indian -- fall in love and get married in this true East meets-West story entitled A Catholic Marries a Hindu. From language and attitudes to cuisine and hobbies, and from college experiences and career choices to social structure and work settings, this short, matter-of-fact read sheds light on the many cultural differences between the United States and India as seen through Paul’s perspective -- as seen through American eyes. The true story culminates in the weddings (both Catholic and Hindu) of Latika and Paul -- tuxedos, Mass, and a wedding cake on day one are replaced by saris, Sanskrit chants, and coconuts on day two. Educational and informative, A Catholic Marries a Hindu shows us that differences, at times, can unite.
