We Are All Made of Stars
A fresh exploration of what an introduction means for British South Asian culture in contemporary society where the internet, cultural diversity, and freedoms previously unavailable to members of that society bounce off established traditions of arranged matches or family marriages.
Written by three authors from The Whole Kahani, a British South Asian writers group, the stories in 'Introductions' explore what it means to be mixed race, the tensions between modern independence and family traditions, and the impact of really going it alone in the face of family expectations.
In this third programme, We Are Made of Stars by Rohan Kar, single, thirtysomething Rupinder finally succumbs to her mother's belief that astrological charts can find her the perfect match. But, as Rupinder discovers, life on Earth is a lot more complicated than that in the heavens.
