Clip | 36s

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Meet the Patels, Ravi Patel arrives in India for a trip with his parents, who are very eager for him to marry, and not so eager for him to date a white woman. As Ravi explains, everyone in his huge family have the last name Patel. "Patels must marry Patels," meaning that all come from same region of India, not literally related.
