No, we aren’t against the arranged marriage set-up, but let’s not deny that a few of the questions the boy’s side asks the girl in this situation are a bit um, absurd. We are expected to be polite and not let our true opinions on these silly questions be known, for otherwise they would sound a bit like this...
1. “Toh, khaane me kya-kya bana leti ho?”
Masala maggi, vegetable maggi, egg maggi, cheese maggi, bread maggi, oh and tea. Green tea, black tea, milk tea… I won’t let you go to sleep hungry, okay?
2. “Ghar ke kaam pasand hain, na?”
If you want me to show excitement over scrubbing dirty utensils and clothes, every single day for the rest of my life - okay, well, that might be a bit difficult.
