The Strand Archive - A different look at love with American psychologist Barbara L Fredrickson.
We look at a new web site showcasing romantic fiction from the Indian subcontinent and hear from a US psychologist who argues that love is not an emotional experience!!
With St Valentine's Day just around the corner, we listen to the songs that stole the hearts of the Grammy judges on Sunday. We find out about a new web publishing venture to showcase new romantic fiction from the Indian subcontinent: IndiRom hopes to reflect the realities and the distinctiveness of modern South Asian life. But, what exactly does that mean? And, in her new book Love 2.0, American psychologist Barbara L. Fredrickson argues that love is not so much an emotional experience, but more a biological and chemical one. Whenever we have a positive connection with another, or others -- however low-key -- she argues, our bodies are affected, and for the better.
