Book Description

This book examines the religious lives of young adults growing up in inter-religious families in India. It explores complex questions of identity, social background, and religion in twenty-first-century India.

The volume

  • studies the religious commitments of young adults,
  • analyses the identity formation process for a critical age group, and 
  • discusses the interpersonal dynamics within inter-religious families.

Drawing on real life stories of mixed heritage – Hindu, Sikh, Muslim, Christian, Jain, Buddhist, and Parsi – this volume will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of psychology, education, sociology and social anthropology, religious studies, politics, and other interdisciplinary studies.
