“Scene kya hai bhai?” “Tu single hi marega” are all popular questions that are a part conversations today.
We live in a generation where love marriages are easier than arranged ones, because the thought of spending your entire life with a stranger sounds absurd, isn’t it? Wrong.
The sad part about dating ‘scene’ in India, is that there is no dating scene in India. Because we live in a society where ‘mohalle’ (society) aunties are more interested in your life than you are! If they see you with a girl, they will tell your mother, their mothers, their friends’mothers, their grandmothers and basically everyone they meet.
So basically if you ever invent a time machine and go back to the 18th century, there will be aunties waiting for you with an aarti plate lecturing you all about being ‘decent.’

Now, being super frustrated with this mentality, naturally you would want to know why has it been this way. We have all watched English movies and we know how cool the parents are. They don’t interfere in your life and they don’t even disown you if you fall into any trouble! But in India? They will welcome you with flying chappals and threaten you to take away your mobile phones. So, your situation at that point is summed up in this poster.
Why do we face this nuisance?
It is probably because your luck is going down the drain as you had the privilege of being born in an Indian family. *cough*sarcasm*cough*
But not all Indians are this way. A few are understanding. But then again, that population is almost negligible.
Well, according to my knowledge, the few reasons why Indian parents are not okay with dating is because of them being strict and lack of communication. Also if they had facilities like you, they would have topped the university.

So anyway, to sum it up, if you are an Indian with strict parents and your mom enjoys kitties, then you should run for your life because you are in deep trouble, my friend. I repeat, run for your life!
I hope you find your mom a ‘bahu’ who is pretty, has a job, doesn’t answer back, makes delicious food, does not like shopping and cleans the house. No, I said daughter in law and not a maid, and yes, such women are either found in heaven/dreams/novels/articles.
But if you ever, EVER, find someone, well you will forever turn into your mom’s laadla.
All the best for your life, and if you are still capable of being exchanged in a hospital bed with a foreign family, make sure to grab that opportunity!
