In our own Western society there are many people who have had to end a relationship due to parents not approving a girlfriend or boyfriend from a different religion, race or nationality.For many parents the disproval rests on the fear that the values and traditions of a mixed relationship will negate the passing down of religious and cultural values as well as traditions for future generations and as a result would end that legacy.You have pointed out the cultural and values differences of the traditional Indian culture.It is important to keep in mind that your experience with dating a girl from a different culture is not unique to those of Indian descent.Indian parents are very, very strict about who their children are allowed to hang around with or date.In a lot of cases they aren't even allowed to date at all (this usually pertains to girls).Dating for this purpose would not be appropriate in India.Although India has experienced changes in its traditions in part due to Western influences, the culture has held steadfast to many of its traditions and customs.

I know there is virtually nothing I can do to act upon this because she can't go against her father's wishes, but I'm still hoping for some help with this or advice. Ending a relationship due to something you can't control is by far the hardest and the most difficult kind of ending.

What applies to one region of India may not apply to another region.

This is because India has about 29 states, each with a different language, customs etc. In general the people of India tend to marry within their community, whether that community exists within India or those of Indian decent living in other countries.

In my mind, I don't think it's fair or morally right to have to let such an important person out of my life because I'm a white male.

I really wish the culture could be more accepting to an outside race dating into them.

This may be why you feel so angry and why it is so hard to understand how something like culture, race or religion might interfere with a loving relationship. So you can see that forbidden love has existed for as long as time itself.
