Fast forward 10 years, and Flock has now turned that knowledge and intimate access to three Mumbai couples into a book: “The Heart is a Shifting Sea: Love and Marriage in Mumbai.”

Flock, a correspondent for “PBS NewsHour,” is based in Washington where she focuses on social issues and women’s issues at home and abroad.
