Yes yes.. You read right. I meant boy hunting only.
My parents, sister and BIL were working on the plan of hunting down a boy for me for quite a while now. My mom throws “hints” in between our casual talks, and I keep shouting at her, No amma, not this soon.. I am not prepared. She immediately hopes to the next topic. That said, we never had a serious discussion on the topic at home.
But my tech savvy amma with some help from my sis managed to create profiles in some of the matrimonial sites.
And she even managed to arrange a professional photographer when I was at home, to get myself photographed so that she can attach my face to my profiles. So I was photographed in various poses, in various dressings, from various angles.. LOL I heard the shutter sound some 50+ times, when he finally gave me a satisfied look.
One evening, my mom received a call from an executive of a matrimonial site. After a brief introduction he got into the topic.
Exe: Madam, is this the right time to talk to you about a new package we are gona offer to Jo?
Exe: Yes madam, I can explain it to you.
Madam, you tell us the qualifications and qualities you expect for a suitable match for your daughter. We will pick up the profiles that match your requirements and will send a set of profiles weekly.
Exe: If you are okay with any of them, we will send it to the boy’s family. If its okay for them as well, we will arrange for the families to meet. And you can have more than one meetings in a day, as per your convenience.
Exe: And the fees we charge for this was Rs. 21,000. Now we offer this service at a discounted rate of Rs.19,000.
Amma: (by know her eye balls are about to fall down and her mouth is a perfect O.) Thank you for calling up. I think I better find a match for my daughter myself.
Just imagine 2-3 sets of families coming to meet you in a day.. Is this a hi-tech version of Swayamvara?
Let me tell you, if you wana have a good laugh after a tiring day, just go, browse some matrimony sites. There is so much fun out there.. I assure u 😉
Here is some interesting answers I found in “What I am looking for” column (of the matrimonial site ok)?
- intelligent, fair, “healthy and well built” girl from a well settled family how funny??
- A Malayali girl who is comfortable with Hindi, English and Tamil *so this guy would probably in the middle of writing a Malayalam- English -Hindi-Tamil dictionary*
- I am looking for a girl who can always make me laugh, no matter what. *looking for a wife or a joker??*
- Should have general knowledge and should know all current affairs. *no comments*
- She should be best looking *not even good looking! Damn that Ash got married*
- She should match with my looks, if not with education..
Crazy are their ideas about the partner na??
A guy with an unmarried sister’s profile read as “My parents and sister are very supportive. I promise my wife will not have any problems from them”
Then there was this guy who introduced himself as, “the only son to rich parents”..
And yes.. Boy hunting continues.. And so does the interesting profiles..
