Different Drums - insight into an Indian family

Families can be strange things. They show in microcosm the variations that can exist in broader society. We can leave them, but may not escape them.

Here I was struck by a Ramana's post Another “Success” Story. We have the community and the family that in some ways mirrors that community. And we have the person who does not fit in and drops out, but ends by finding an accommodation with the family that suits him.

Jim, it is incredible that you read it and have commented on your blog about it. Thank you. Yes, I agree, that this story with minor variations, like marrying cousins, can take place anywhere in the world!
