Formally, caste discrimination in India disappeared almost seventy years ago — in 1950, when the equality of castes was enshrined in the constitution; now even talking about the subject is considered indecent. Nevertheless, discrimination still permeates Indian society from top to bottom. Seventy percent of marriages in India are still arranged and young couples that dare to marry for love risk honor killings, severe beatings, and kidnappings. The police often do little or are even complicit in these cases. That began to change in 2010 with the formation of ‘Love Commandos’. These volunteers provide legal aid, safe housing, and protection for lovebirds that have fallen afoul of India’s strict societal customs.
