I understand that in your culture you control the child until they are will over the age of legal adulthood. However, you need to understand that your child may be seeing that other cultures are not the same, and wants to experience something different.

The most you can do is tell your daughter that no matter what you will love her and accept her decisions, even if it goes against what you consider a cultural norm. If she's been exposed to life outside of India, she has seen other options for people her age. It surprises me, though, that your inlaws in India that she's living with would allow this.

As for how to speak with her, as I said, let her know that you love her, and when she's ready you'll be there.
