Are you tired of your prying and interrogating relatives who are no less than  local versions of Arnab Goswami, who constantly nag you with questions that sound like ‘’the nation wants to know, when are you getting married?’’ Because to them, staying single is no less than an illness and they are the Indian version of Cupid, ready to remedy the situation in an instant with the ultimate solution to all your problems – Arranged marriage!


Surprise parties aren’t a part of our culture, and going on blind dates are blasphemous, after all, we have some older-than-time ‘sanskaars &paramparas’ right? But it is totally cool for desi parents to serve the old liquor in a new bottle. You can surely check ‘blind date’ off your bucket list and expect all sorts of surprises at a party, where your parents subtly tell you that, you are someone else’s problem from then on.

Now the question comes, why do our super enlightened relatives want to get us married? The answer is simple, what better purpose do you have than to serve to be someone’s maid who isn’t even paid for the work? Or what better thing could you achieve in life than being a human version of ATM?

People around the world go for spirited sports like sky-diving or bungee jumping when the soul craves for something daring, but here in India, we have something that surpasses every other sport something that literally rocks our worlds – arranged marriage, a phenomenon that occurs once in lifetime and makes itself felt everyday!



If you are somebody who feels that life is boring, try to settle for an arranged marriage, and I promise you would crave boredom for the rest of your life.


And if you are somebody who is above 25, single, dumb-witted, lacking in social skills and not too sure of how good a partner you are going to make, you can happily settle for ‘mummy-pappa ka choice’ as they are desperate to get you married by now, and the only song they would dedicate to you if something goes wrong in your marriage is ‘’you can put the blame on me.’’ So hurray!

Now that we are being ushered into a new year,  and you probably look as clueless as this kid…

Shake off those inhibitions as it is the time for you to act ‘God’ and solve all your relatives’ problems by saying a ‘yes’ to an arranged marriage and try to salvage you miserable loveless life.
