If you’re an Indian, unmarried girl in your mid 20s, you must often be wondering why the whole society unites in the quest to either get you married or pass frivolous, unwanted comments on why you’re not married yet! Read on for some funny, relatable things you must have heard from one or the other relative at least once!
1. Long Lost Relative
"You’ve got a Masters in Finance, that’s great. But beta, do you know how to cook?"
2. Bua Ji
"You should get overly dressed and attend all social events from Shaadis to Kriyas to be showcased in your full glory!"
P.S. Bonus points if you’re in Indian wear. Because, #sanskari
3. Pandit Ji
"Beta, why don’t you keep a Monday fast to get a good husband?" #lifepurpose
4. Mom’s Friend
"So who's telling you to get married right away?! This is when you should invest your time in learning make-up, gift wrapping and taking up dessert making courses." #freeadvice
5. Dad’s Friend’s Wife
"Have you tried making your account on www.jeevansaathi.com or www.shaadi.com or the likes of it?! Because you never know!"
6. Aunty You Met At The Gym (Last Week)
"Beta ji, your prime focus in your 20s should be on maintaining a good figure (she means weight loss) and beautifying yourself before finding a husband!" (because beauty > intellect, aunty ji?).
7. Mausi Ji
"But aren't you interested in a profession like jewellery designing, baking, teaching or even better, charity for an NGO? It looks great on the marriage C.V.!"
8. Dadi Maa
"Quit your job! This is the age to get married and not slog at work!" #Backto1947
